Watersports are a highlight of the Polynesian experience, and the m/s Paul Gauguin is constructed to take full advantage of these irresistible waters, with accessibility to ports and adventures that other ships can't offer. The ship's small footprint enables it to navigate lagoons that larger ships would never dare to enter. And our retractable, on board Watersports Marina brings you down to sea level, where you can hop aboard a windsurfer, launch a kayak, master a paddleboard, or embark on our Zodiac for optional diving adventures.

Even if you've never been diving, you can take advantage of our onboard SCUBA lessons.

The staff's rigorous dedication to your comfort and well-being is gracefully expressed in a hundred thoughtful acts. The way the maitre d' remembers your name or which table you prefer. In the extra personal attention the dive master gives every participant in the ship's onboard SCUBA program. And in the warmth of your stewardess' smile as she places a perfect ripe mango in your fruit basket. Yet, surprisingly, the staff expects no gratuities. Gratuities are included in your cruise fare.

24-Hour Room Service

a special 24-hour room service menu is available. During normal dining hours, you may also order from L'Etoile Restaurant and enjoy dinner in your suite.

Butler Service

The ultimate and absolutely indispensable perk of Butler service awaits guests in category B accommodations and higher. For those who desire an enhanced level of individualized service, our Butler service is a must. Butlers can assist your arrival on board by unpacking your luggage, arranging pressing for your clothing, and making reservations at the Spa or for dinner in La Veranda or Le Grill. If would like to spend more time ashore, a Butler can arrange for a private car or make lunch reservations at a local restaurant. Celebrating a special occasion? Have the Butler arrange a private cocktail party with canapes. Our highly-skilled Butlers do it all R10; quickly, competently, and without fuss.

Laundry, Dry Cleaning, and Pressing Services

Stewards of Nature

The South Pacific is more than a dream destination: it's also a fascinating getaway where families can share activities, strengthen bonds, and create memories to last a lifetime.

Paul Gauguin Cruises is offering a new way for families to explore this breathtaking part of the world together through a joint program with the Wildlife Conservation Society. During the summer months and holiday season, the Stewards of Nature program, is offered aboard the m/s Paul Gauguin and invites guests to discover and value nature through hands-on, interactive learning for children and teens ages 7-17, as well as family members.

Every day of the voyage, there is a combination of naturalist-led island and/or beach excursions, science activities, crafts, games, and other adventures. Depending on their itinerary, your children might learn about underwater life during a snorkeling excursion, observe the ocean or the stars through binoculars or an onboard telescope, learn about different kinds of marine life and their habitats, reinforce their discoveries by playing Ocean Trivia or Oceanopoly, go on a dolphin-watching expedition, swim with sharks and rays, play beach games and race hermit crabs, enjoy a dance performance or a movie and a pizza party on board, and learn what it means to be a Steward of Nature.

While all of the activities on the itinerary are included for children and teens through the nominal fee that reserves the program for them, family members are invited and encouraged to participate in most activities for the additional cost of the shore excursions.

Please note: The Stewards of Nature program must be reserved at the time of booking. Stewards of Nature Naturalists Meredith Kintzing and Anna Pedersen.

Onboard Experts

Mark Eddowes, Onboard Lecturer

For nine years, Mark Eddowes has captivated guests of the m/s Paul Gauguin with fascinating tales of French Polynesia's storied past, sharing his wealth of knowledge through lectures that that range from "The Cult of the Tiki" and "The Ancient Culture of the Marquesas Islands" to the real story of the Mutiny on the Bounty. These lectures are often cited as a highlight by our guests.

Much of his knowledge was gained in the field, literally uncovering the past on archaeological digs. Originally from New Zealand, Mark first visited Tahiti in 1988 as a graduate student in anthropology at the University of Auckland. He had been invited to join a dig on the island's north shore, and once that four-year project ended, he stayed on, directing the excavations of ancient sites throughout the Society, Austral, and Marquesas Islands and making significant contributions to the knowledge of southern Polynesia's early settlements.

Today, Mark is an acknowledged authority and researcher in the field of Polynesian anthropology, having been honored in 2006 with the title of National Geographic expert in the archeology of French Polynesia and the Cook Islands. He has also been invited to head an archaeological research committee charged with classifying the historical temple site of Taputapuatea on Raiatea island as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And he is currently working with UNESCO to class the marae (temples) of the Cook Islands - including those of Aitutaki, where he is currently directing a research project - as similar heritage sites.

When he's not traveling the South Seas conducting his research, Mark makes his home in Huahine, the "Garden Island" of the Society Islands chain. Fluent in French and Tahitian, as well as his native English, Mark joins us on most voyages of The Gauguin, so it's likely that you, too, will have the opportunity to attend an entertaining and enlightening lecture given by this renowned archaeologist and scholar - and gifted raconteur.

Mark Eddowes will be on the following sailings:

  • October 20, 2018

Official Partner

We’ve proudly partnered with Manulife to help improve your travel experience.

The cost of this insurance could be small compared to the financial expenses you might incur if you must interrupt or cancel your entire trip unexpectedly. The cost of this insurance is also small in comparison to the potential costs of an unexpected medical emergency in a foreign country.

Think of the Manulife Premium Protection Plan® as a safeguard for your vacation that could help protect you from certain financial costs arising from trip cancellation or trip interruption events, lost or delayed luggage, or medical emergencies.

You’ll also be able to rest easier knowing help is only a phone call away. The Manulife Premium Protection Plan comes with a 24-hour hotline assistance and concierge services.

  • Trip Cancellation/Interruption for most unforeseen events *
  • Travel disruption
  • Emergency Medical Care and Transportation Benefits
  • Baggage and Baggage Delay Protection
  • 24-Hour Hotline Assistance
  • Concierge services
  • StandbyMD

We recommend downloading the free, Travelaid ™ app to identify the nearest medical facility, file a claim, get help quickly, and more—all from your smartphone.

Destination FAQ

1) When should I visit the South Pacific?

The South Pacific can be quite humid but the dry season is widely considered to run from May to October. This means that this is also the most popular time to take a cruise and this is the high season. If you want to avoid the crowds then you can choose to visit after October.

2) When is cyclone season in the South Pacific?

The South Pacific region is susceptible to cyclones. The main cyclone season is from November to April although it is possible for cyclones to hit at any time. Should this happen, your route may be diverted to avoid the bad weather.

3) What should I pack for a cruise in the South Pacific?

The weather in the South Pacific is hot so you will need to pack accordingly. Shorts, t-shirts, and swimwear are all recommended as well as sandals. If you want to join an expedition onshore then you may also want to pack walking shoes or boots.

4) Do I need to bring my passport for a South Pacific Cruise?

Yes. As the cruise will visit multiple countries in the South Pacific you will need to bring your passport with you.
