Savings to be made on Paul Gauguin

Savings to be made on Paul Gauguin

You may have heard that Paul Gauguin Cruises is now part of the Ponant family.  The iconic Paul Gauguin was custom built to sail the shallow Tahitian waters and is the highest-rated and longest continually sailing luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific.  She has won numerous industry awards and repeatedly wows guests with gorgeous itineraries and a wonderful ambiance on board.

So what does that mean for you?  Some seriously good savings!

Paul Gauguin offers a range of cruises including 7-night Society and Tuamotu Islands, voyages to The Marquesas or combination Tahiti/Cook Islands cruises.  Sailing with Paul Gauguin means you’ll see some unbelievably spectacular scenery with turquoise lagoons, white sand beaches, palm trees, marine life and the list goes on.  You’ll sail to islands that look like they have just stepped out of a post card – no photoshopping required here! 

On board, it’s a relaxed atmosphere with guests soaking up the Tahitian sunshine and hospitality.  This is a great option for those who like the facilities of larger ships but don’t want to be just one among thousands.  You’ll find an onboard watersports marina, three dining venues, a decadent spa, family programme (selected sailings), SCUBA facilities, on board entertainment and more.

Yet, with only 332 guests, the ship is intimate with five-star service.  The ship is small enough that you don’t get lost in the masses, yet large enough to meet new people and find plenty of space to relax on board. 

You can spend an idyllic day relaxing on the beach at a private motu, complete with bar service and a range of watersports.  Or explore marae (temples), discover beautiful gardens or snorkel in stunning Biosphere Reserves. 

Now, about those savings we mentioned earlier.  For a limited time, first time Paul Gauguin guests can save A$800 per person on any cruise aboard Le Paul Gauguin if you book before 03 April 2020.  Plus, you can double this saving (yes, A$1600 per person!) if you’re a first time Paul Gauguin cruiser aboard the following departures:
Tahiti and Society Islands – 08 Aug & 19 Sep 2020, 09 Jan, 13 Feb and 27 Feb 2021.

Society Islands and Tahiti Iti – 22 Aug & 26 Sep 2020, 02 Jan & 06 Mar 2021.
