Cook Islands & Society Islands on m/s Paul Gauguin
The South Pacific puts on quite a show, and the region's incredible diversity of scenery is front and center on this 11-night journey through the Cook and Society Islands. From the rugged terrain of Rarotonga and coral reef-lined lagoon of Aitutaki to the jaw-dropping beauty of bucket-list mainstays Bora Bora and Moorea, you'll be hard-pressed to pick your favorite port.
- Hidden beneath the emerald foliage on the "Garden Island" of Huahine, you'll find hidden temples surrounded by rare orchids, ancient archeological sites, and panoramic views that are sure to take your breath away. What more could you ask for?
- Spend two long, luxurious days in storied Bora Bora. You've seen the photos and magazine covers, but the real deal is even more beautiful than you could have ever imagined. Take it all in with a dip in the lagoon or a sunset sail.
- 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.
