The m/s Paul Gauguin underwent renovations during dry dock in Singapore February of 2021. The vision: elegant Polynesian bespoke style visualized through a chic, modern lens. This new decor enriches our guests' experience while sailing through the multi-hued blue lagoons of Tahiti, French Polynesia, Fiji and the South Pacific. A palette incorporating shades of blue, taupe, green and pearl complements warm wood finishes, woven textiles, Polynesian motifs and stylish gold accents. Also added to the "palette:" complimentary Wi-Fi is the new addition to an already extensive list of all-inclusives you will enjoy on a holiday in the South Pacific aboard The Gauguin.

Designed specifically to glide in luxury through the shallow seas of the South Pacific, The Gauguin is a small-ship cruiser's dream. She delivers travelers to intimate ports inaccessible to larger cruise ships, all the while providing a travel experience that is nothing short of luxurious. Once on board, guests enjoy newly-decorated 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 on The Gauguin 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 Les Gauguin and Les Gauguines—local Tahitians who serve as onboard hosts and hostesses, entertainers, and storytellers.
