TAHITITAHITI & SOCIETY ISLANDS WITH PAUL GAUGUIN

FROM

$3,730pp

The beauty of Tahiti and the Society Islands has left people spellbound for centuries and there’s no better way to discover it for yourself than cruising aboard the luxurious Paul Gauguin.  Gliding through turquoise waters, pausing at a deserted motu and delighting you with perfect day after perfect day, the Paul Gauguin crew will ensure your every need is taken care of. 

Your fully inclusive fly/cruise package starts from your own doorstep with chauffeur driven luxury car transfers from collecting you from your home to take you to the airport (conditions apply) in time for your flight to Papeete.  On arrival, you will be met at the airport and taken to your accommodation where you’ll have two nights to relax and unwind in Papeete before boarding the MS Paul Gauguin. 

Then, it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy the luxury onboard the ship as you set sail, heading for the beautiful island of Raiatea.  This is where Tahiti gained her reputation for picture-perfect lagoons and sun-kissed, white-sand beaches.  You’ll enjoy day after day of decadent relaxation, exploring, snorkelling, swimming, eating and drinking as you visit the magical islands of Taha’a, Bora Bora and Moorea. 

On-board, the crew are attentive and eager to ensure you enjoy every moment of your cruise.  With 217 crew to just 332 guests, you’ll enjoy one of the highest crew-to-guest ratios of any luxury cruise ship.

Dining is a five-star culinary adventure, with every one of the onboard dining options included in the cruise fare.  In the evenings, enjoy entertainment provided by Paul Gauguin’s own troupe of Tahitian entertainers.

Suites and staterooms are spacious and well appointed, all with ocean views and 70% offering private balconies.

YOUR SHIP

Designed specifically to glide through the shallow seas of the South Pacific, Le Paul 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.

CRUISE HIGHLIGHTS

HUAHINE
Your first port of call is Huahine, known as “The Garden Island” for its lush rainforests and dramatic terrain. While here, you can cruise the expansive lagoon, explore the island's culture, or picnic on the beach.

TAHA'A
Embark on your choice of exciting shore excursions today, or spend your whole day relaxing on Motu Mahana, our very own private islet. Enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking, or simply lounge on the beach with a chilled beverage from our floating bar. Les Gauguines will also be on hand to provide musical entertainment and demonstrate traditional Polynesian crafts. A delicious barbecue lunch is provided.

BORA BORA
Immediately recognizable by Mount Otemanu rising from the ocean, this half-atoll, half-mountain is surrounded by a spectacular lagoon and a series of smaller islands. Ancient Polynesians called it Parapora, or “firstborn,” because they thought it was the first island created after Raiatea.

MOOREA
Vibrant colors abound on Moorea, in everything from fresh fruits and flowers to multi-hued lagoons, and from spectacular mountain peaks to palm-fringed beaches. Shop for local handicrafts, embark on an optional dolphin-watching expedition with a marine biologist, and sample the local pineapples, said to be the most delicious in all of French Polynesia.

PAPEETE
Tahiti’s capital city of Papeete welcomes you back with emerald hillsides, sapphire waters, and warm breezes. If you’re not ready for your South Pacific vacation to end, spend a few days here experiencing resorts, spas, restaurants, nightlife, and shopping.
