Discover Magical French Polynesia

The islands, atolls, and motus (islets) of French Polynesia lie in the middle of the South Pacific, surrounded by pristine bays and lagoons in a stunning rainbow of blues. Known collectively for their largest and most populous island, Tahiti, these exquisite islands each have their own distinct wildlife, atmosphere, and soul. These are the home waters of the award-winning m/s Paul Gauguin.

Each year, The Gauguin follows in the wake of Polynesia’s great migrations on one-of-a-kind itineraries to island nations of unimaginable beauty, where traditional cultures are proudly maintained and fascinating discoveries abound. Aboard this luxurious ship, you will venture to islands as varied and magnificent as a South Pacific sunset, visiting ports that are inaccessible to larger vessels.

In an overcrowded and overcomplicated world, Tahiti and her islands offer simplicity and biodiversity in an undeveloped, natural setting — where no structure is taller than a palm tree.
