NEWS: Renovated Paul Gauguin ship opens sales for 2023 Tahiti cruises. There are six itineraries exploring the wonders of the South Pacific aboard the ship.
Paul Gauguin, the South Pacific specialists, has devised six idyllic itineraries, from 7 to 16 nights, to explore Tahiti, the Society Islands, and the Marquesas, Tuamotus, Tonga, Cook and Fiji islands.
Swimming, diving, kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkelling are just some of the activities on offer to enjoy to the full these picture postcard landscapes.
Aboard, impeccable service and fine cuisine take inspiration from the Polynesian lifestyle. Combining this with privileged moments like a traditional Polynesian barbecue on private islet, Motu Mahana, off the protected Taha’a Island, completes a voyage to this far-flung paradise.
With 166 staterooms and suites, the m/s Paul Gauguin was designed to sail in Polynesian waters, her shallow draught allowing the ship to get in close to shallow lagoons.
In the heart of paradise islands and the atolls of Tahiti and Society Islands, the vessel invites guests to discover the traditional way of life and customs in Polynesia. In a collaboration with the Jean-Philippe Nuel Studio, the new interior design evokes the elegance and ambiance of the South Sea and South Pacific islands.
All staterooms, suites and public areas have been tastefully renovated to bring out the warmth of the wood panelling, a strong symbol of the local identity.
Combined with hints of lagoon, a range of green and natural tones enlivened with vivid touches of colour, plant motifs and woven fabrics, the overall effect is wholly in keeping with the destination. A guaranteed change of scenery.
