Voted World’s Best Mid-Ship Cruise Line, the PAUL GAUGIN was designed specifically to glide through the shallow seas of the South Pacific. The Gauguin is the flagship of Paul Gauguin Cruises and a small-ship cruiser’s dream. She delivers travelers to intimate ports inaccessible to larger cruise ships, all the while providing an onboard experience that is nothing short of luxurious.

Guests aboard our luxury cruises enjoy 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 onboard 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 Gauguines and Gauguins—local Tahitians who serve as cruise staff, entertainers, and storytellers.
