Stories of the South Seas

Journey to the spectacular South Pacific with Paul Gauguin Cruises and be forever changed

Discover the Feeling of
the South Pacific

There’s no feeling quite like the moment you set eyes on the shores of a South Pacific island, where sugar-white sands are marked only by swaying palm fronds and thatched bungalows. Aboard m/s Paul Gauguin, discover exotic islands such as Tahiti, Bora Bora and Moorea and feel pure awe, wonderment and tranquility. Effortlessly access these tropical islands and motus (islets) that larger ships can’t reach in a vessel that is purpose-built for the shallow waters. Experience the generous warmth of the locals, the thrill of exploring remote jungles and the relaxation of spending a night in an overwater bungalow resort. Discover how you can make French Polynesia part of your story.

Indulge Your Curiosity

Let us introduce you to a place where ancient culture meets youth and freedom. Here are just a few Paul Gauguin excursions we recommend.

Experience Sumptuous Comfort

Welcome aboard — where new faces become lasting friends, where you stay at the table long after the meal is finished and where wonder and dreams are fulfilled.

Extend Your Stay


Once you’ve been introduced to the indescribable feelings that are so deeply connected to French Polynesia, we know that you won’t want to leave. Let us extend your stay in this magical land of sand and warmth where the power of every natural element exists in perfect unison. Lose yourself in a luxurious spa treatment at the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalassa Spa or watch dolphins play in the tropical lagoon at InterContinental Moorea. We are here to help you stay in paradise — both before and after your cruise — as long as you desire.

Create Your Own Story in French Polynesia

Paul Gauguin Cruises perfectly illuminates the South Pacific. It brings to life the centuries-old myths and storied treasures of the islands’ inhabitants, and affords you adventures you’ve never had before. From sea to shore, we want you to experience the feeling of the South Pacific. Let us help you make French Polynesia part of your story.
