Paul Gauguin’s custom-built ship offers an all-inclusive experience covering drinks, tips, and water sports in a luxuriously romantic atmosphere. Onboard style is casual yet luxurious and pampering.
Complimentary beverages are available throughout the Paul Gauguin ship and in the spa. Select wines are generously poured at every meal, compliments of the house, and French and Polynesian dining options are available. Dinner reservations are required at both of the Paul Gauguin restaurants. Try the breakfast buffet at Le Grill, stop by again for their poolside lunch options, and at night, Le Grill transforms into an indoor/outdoor restaurant offering grilled specialties. La Veranda has floor-to-ceiling windows, indoor and al fresco seating, and a luxurious, fine dining atmosphere in a French Bistro setting.
Paul Gauguin maintains their Ambassadors of the Environment Youth Program, including a relationship with Jean-Michel Cousteau and the Ocean Futures Society. A recent refurbishment upgraded the ship’s fitness centers and Internet service and added sports boats to the ship’s marina.
Their Polynesian watersports, including SCUBA, kayaking, windsurfing, and more, are a highlight, with their small ship size allowing it to navigate in shallow lagoons and narrow channels usually too small for larger ships. Scuba certification is available on board.
Crowds and Destinations
Paul Gauguin Cruises sail in French Polynesia and the South Pacific, including Tahiti, the Society Islands, Tuamotus, the Cook Island, Marquesas, Tonga, Fiji, and New Zealand. The romantic atmosphere appeals to the honeymooners, but the cruise options attract a mix of all ages.
70% of Paul Gauguin cabins feature balconies. Paul Gauguin Cruises honors Seven Seas Society Savings from Regent Seven Seas Cruises. The optional at-cost Paul Gauguin children’s program teaches children about a variety of nature’s secrets and gives them the chance (on certain cruises) to meet and learn from Jean-Michel Cousteau himself.
