The perfect cruise for family vacations

The perfect cruise for family vacations

Don’t you wish the holiday season could last forever? Beautiful sunny days, filled with the sound of children’s laughter and fun family time? That’s what life is all about – enjoying quality time with our loved ones. And one of the best ways to create incredible memories is with a family cruise. Of course, we have a great suggestion for a fantastic cruise to enjoy with your extended family!



The custom-built m/s Paul Gauguin is the longest continually operating luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific. The ship was built specifically for sailing the Tahitian waters and offers everything you could ask for to enjoy this mesmerising part of the world.


It’s perfect for family groups (especially family reunions!) as it’s small and intimate, yet offers a large variety of activities and water sports. On selected sailings children aged 7-15 years can take part in marine education programme which offers the opportunity to learn about the natural wonders of this breath-taking slice of paradise through hands-on, interactive learning.


At night, enjoy spectacular performances in Le Grand Salon and see your talented crew in action during the Crew Show. Plus there’s dancing, local entertainment, a casino, piano bar, pool and more.


Of course, the whole family will have endless fun swimming, snorkelling, kayaking or playing on the beach of the private motu.

Itineraries range from 7 nights through to 16 nights. You can choose from voyages centred in the Society Islands or combine these with the Tuamotus, the Marquesas, Cook Islands or even Fiji and Bali. For more information on any of these cruises or the Paul Gauguin ship, you can request a brochure or request a call from one of our Ultimate Cruising experts.
