It’s cruising season and if you’re interested in taking a luxury cruise, Paul Gauguin Cruises offers all-inclusive travel options to the islands of Fiji, Tahiti, and French Polynesia.
If you’re ready to pack up and sail into the sunset on a vacation of a lifetime, here is everything you need to know about the flagship m/s Paul Gauguin.
Room to move: It’s not overwhelming, that’s for sure. The ship prohibits more than 332 guests on each excursion.
Accommodations: No matter what your family size, the cruise has a stateroom for you, ranging in size from 180 sq.-ft. to a spacious 531 sq.-ft. to accommodate up to four guests. They have accompanying verandas and include your own personal butler – talk about luxury! There are also wheelchair accessible rooms.
Entertainment: All shipboard entertainment, including a troupe of Polynesian performers and live music in the evenings. There are also presentations by onboard experts and guest hosts.

Activities: If you think you’ll be bored on a cruise, think again. The Paul Gauguin Cruise comes with complimentary kayaking, windsurfing, and paddle-boarding from the marina or destination beaches. Step on the secluded, white-sand beach in Bora Bora that comes with bar service, volleyball, and snorkeling. If snorkeling is your thing, you will enjoy a day at the private isle of Motu Mahana, off the coast of Taha’a, featuring snorkeling, watersports, a barbecue, full bar service, and Polynesian hospitality.
Dining: Cruising is about the destinations, but it’s also about the on-board cuisine as well. Enjoy meals on Paul Gauguin Cruises prepared by Jean-Pierre Vigato, Chef Propriétaire at Paris’ Michelin-starred Restaurant Apicius. At the LeVeranda, cruisers can enjoy a wraparound ocean view while you fill up on a buffet. In the evening, L’Etoile restaurant offers a high-end dining experience. Of course, activities make swimmers hungry, so there is Le Grill, located by the pool that offers a buffet breakfast, grilled lunch favorites, salads, and fresh tropical fruit.
Commune with Nature: Finally, after your busy day at sea and onboard, it’s time to take a break with the Deep Nature Spa by Algotherm. Getting pampered with skin care therapies, skin exfoliation, massage, reflexology, overwater massages and aromatherapy, body wraps, facials, beauty treatments, nail services, and hair styling is the way to really enjoy your cruising downtime.
