The Gauguin can accommodate 332 guests with a staff of 217, one of the highest crew-to-guest ratios at sea.

The ship’s informal ambience reflects the relaxed nature of the region. A much-loved troupe known as Les Gauguines and Les Gauguins — Tahitians who serve as staff, entertainers and storytellers — add a uniquely South Pacific touch to life on board. Best of all, The Gauguin offers an all-inclusive experience, with airfare from Los Angeles, gratuities, 24-hour room service, bottled water, soft drinks and select wines and spirits all included in the cruise fare. Voyages range from seven to 17 nights, with fares for seven-night itineraries starting at $3,995.

Highlights of the ship include its three dining venues, with dishes and menus overseen by Jean-Pierre Vigato, chef propriétaire of the world-renowned, two-star Michelin-rated restaurant Apicius. Another top draw, the Deep Nature Spa by Algotherm offers a wide variety of luxurious treatments; relaxing overwater massages are also available on the line’s private motu (small island) off the coast of Taha’a.

Paul Gauguin Cruises

As for activities, The Gauguin presents a series of lectures by on-board guest presenters, and offers themed cruises with guest hosts representing a wide variety of special interests. In addition, the ship’s small size allows it to navigate shallow lagoons and narrow channels, giving guests the opportunity to participate in a variety of watersports. From a specially designed retractable platform, guests can descend to sea level, where they can hop aboard a windsurfer, paddle board, launch a kayak or set out for a SCUBA diving expedition (a SCUBA certification program is offered on board). Through the ship’s youth program — Ambassadors of the Environment, affiliated with Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society — guests ages 9 to 17 can participate in daily excursions that reveal the natural wonders and rich culture of Polynesia, both on land and at sea.
