Marquesas, Tuamotus & Society Islands on m/s Paul Gauguin
With two indulgent weeks in the Marquesas, Tuamotus, and Society Islands, there's ample time to soak up everything that makes this corner of the world so spectacular. Whether you're inclined to wander white-sand beaches and read a book in the shade of a palm tree or would rather dive right in to the active pursuits available both above and below water, in the South Pacific, it's all here waiting for you .
- The nature lover's paradise of Fakarava offers front-row seats to rare birds, plants, and crustaceans you won't see anywhere else in the world. And, you won't need to take an excursion deep into the jungle to see them - many of these exotic species can be spotted from the island's incredible beaches.
- History and culture are in the forefront on the island of Hiva Oa, which is the home of the largest stone sculptures in the Marquesas, which are said to be linked to the famous tikis of Easter Island.
- Live the life idyllic with a memorable day on Motu Mahana, our own private slice of paradise. On this exclusive islet, treat yourself to sand between your toes, the shade of swaying palm trees, a sumptuous barbecue lunch, and, of course, drinks sipped from coconuts.
Designed specifically to glide in luxury through the shallow seas of the South Pacific, The Gauguin is a small-ship cruiser’s dream. She delivers travelers to intimate ports inaccessible to larger cruise ships, all the while providing a travel experience that is nothing short of luxurious. Once on board, guests enjoy newly-decorated spacious suites and staterooms (more than 70% with private balconies), an onboard watersports marina, three dining venues, an extensive spa, and five-star service. Life on The Gauguin also reflects the beauty and rich cultural heritage of the islands she calls upon, with a warm, friendly feel, informal setting, and even a beloved troupe of Les Gauguin and Les Gauguines—local Tahitians who serve as onboard hosts and hostesses, entertainers, and storytellers.
In September 2019, Paul Gauguin Cruises joined PONANT’s family, the world leader of small ship cruising.
