Paul Gauguin in 2022

Paul Gauguin in 2022

When travel and cruising came to a stand-still last year, Paul Gauguin Cruises took advantage of this time to renovate, enhance and update the gorgeous Le Paul Gauguin.   Designed specifically to sail the South Pacific seas, Le Paul Gauguin has charmed and delighted hundreds of guests over the years, showcasing Tahiti and her Islands with private beach retreats, decadent food, sensational island visits and true Polynesian hospitality. 

These latest renovations include a chic and fresh style designed to enrich guests’ experience throughout the ship interior including panoramic artworks complimenting the captivating beauty of the lagoons, mountains, turquoise waters and coral atolls.  There’s also now unlimited Wi-Fi and a new tribute art gallery with over 150 paintings by Paul Gauguin.

As part of the PONANT family, you can now take advantage of the 30% PONANT bonus savings when booking a 2022 voyage on board Le Paul Gauguin and first-time Paul Gauguin guests also receive an additional AU$800 per stateroom saving as a welcome offer.

Don’t forget, all Paul Gauguin voyages offer a luxurious, all-inclusive experience, which encompasses the choice of dining in all three of the ship’s restaurants and 24-hour room service, complimentary Open Bar (including select wine, beer and spirits) and on-board gratuities as well as an extensive range of complimentary outdoor activities.

This is an incredible way to see Tahiti (or the Cook Islands, Tonga or Fiji!), soaking up the beauty and warmth of the South Pacific and enjoying superb service and hospitality.  As Deb Corbett (General Manager Sales & Marketing Asia & Pacific for Paul Gauguin Cruises) says, “These offers will not last, so I do suggest you start planning and booking your 2022 South Pacific get-away now.”
