About Paul Gauguin Cruises

Paul Gauguin Cruises is owned by Pacific Beachcomber, French Polynesia’s leading luxury hotel and cruise operator. In addition to owning and managing Paul Gauguin Cruises, the company owns six award-winning hotels: InterContinental Tahiti Resort, InterContinental Bora Bora Le Moana Resort, InterContinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa, InterContinental Moorea Resort and Spa, the Maitai Bora Bora, and the Maitai Rangiroa.

Paul Gauguin Cruises operates the 5+-star cruise ship, the 332-guest m/s Paul Gauguin, providing a deluxe cruise experience tailored to the unparalleled wonders of Tahiti, French Polynesia, the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. It is one of the top exclusive charter and incentive group venues in the industry and has completed more than 570 South Pacific cruises, serving more than 176,250 guests, including more than 15,000 honeymooners, since its inaugural sail in 1998. The Gauguin’s 2012 accolades include a second place for small-ship cruise lines in Travel + Leisure’s “World’s Best Awards” and was recognized as one of the “Top 20 Small Cruise Ships” by readers of Condé Nast Traveler. This year, The Gauguin offers five award-winning, one-of-a-kind itineraries to the Society Islands, Tuamotus, Cook Islands, Australs, and Marquesas. In 2014, the ship’s sailing schedule also encompasses Fiji, Tonga, Vanuatu, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Singapore, and Australia.

In December 2012, the m/v Tere Moana began sailing under the Paul Gauguin Cruises banner after completing a multifaceted renovation and offers voyages in the Caribbean, Latin America, and Europe.  At 330 feet long and 46 feet wide, The Moana has a draft of 11.5 feet, and accommodates 90 guests with a staff of 60. Like The Gauguin, The Moana specializes in warm-weather destinations. November to March, the ship plies the waters of the Caribbean and Latin America, including the French West Indies, British Virgin Islands, St. Kitts & Nevis, Antigua, Aruba, Curaçao, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Panama, including transits of the Panama Canal. The remainder of the year, The Moana sets sail on 7-night voyages throughout Europe, from the Atlantic to the Black Sea. Two classic transatlantic voyages are also offered.
