We are pleased to partner with award winning Paul Gauguin Cruises to provide one lucky Luxury Cruise News subscriber a chance to win a 7-night cruise to Tahiti.
Easily described as an overwater “bungalow” that sails, the m/s Paul Gauguin is renowned as the gold standard in small-ship discovery of French Polynesia; the only ship to explore these fabled lagoons and atolls year-round with artful authenticity and all-inclusive luxury. With a teak-deck pool and a retractable marina, exceptional cuisine in three different restaurants, and spacious suites and staterooms—many with private balconies—a mere 330 guests enjoy a blissfully carefree and enriching experience steeped in immersive discovery.
Elevating The Gauguin Experience to award-winning status—Paul Gauguin Cruises consistently tops prestigious World’s Best and Readers’ Choice polls—is the ship’s complement of 217 officers and crew allowing for a staff to guest service ratio of 1:1.5, among the highest in the industry. Singularly unique to The Gauguin are Les Gauguins and Les Gauguines, Tahitian locals who live aboard ship to share insight into their culture through entertainment, storytelling, and activities.
Curated itineraries feature visits to Bora Bora and Moorea, while long-standing relationships in all the islands reward guests with incomparable adventures. Ashore this means 4×4 adventures into rainforests, visits to a pearl farm, and e-bike excursions revealing ancient marae (archaeological sites). Yet it’s the translucent waters that truly captivate with activities ranging from lagoon cruises and outrigger canoeing, wave runners and catamarans to underwater aqua-safari walks, shark and stingray encounters, snorkeling and diving—even PADI dive certification offered on board for beginners.
The quintessential beauty of Tahiti is matched only by the friendly camaraderie and tropically chic ambience discovered on board, fostered by The Gauguin’s generous all-inclusive offering with fine wines and spirits, 24-hour room service, all onboard gratuities, visits to a private beach in Bora Bora, a day at the line’s private motu in Taha’a’s lagoon, complimentary Wi-Fi, kayaking and paddle boarding, and the Moana Explorer Program for kids ages 7 to 15 offered on select sailings.
7-Night Roundtrip Papeete cruise. Discover the picture-perfect charms of the South Pacific on this idyllic journey exploring islands that played muse for authors and artists like Michener and Gauguin.
