Warm Weather Cruising with Paul Gauguin

The luxurious m/s Paul Gauguin chases warm weather and leads small ship cruising in destinations such as Tahiti, the South Pacific, Fiji and hidden ports found in the Caribbean, Europe and Latin America. This year,  the ship is taking a “one-time” opportunity to voyage to Bali and Fiji and back. The all-inclusive pricing offers an extraordinary value, and allows you to spend more time enjoying your cruise vacation and less time worrying about every little detail when it’s all been taken care of—from airfare out of LAX to gourmet dining to onboard gratuities, and so much more. Once you’re on the plane, relax.

The experience is more than just sunshine and open waters. Guests can enjoy world-renowned SCUBA diving that will awe the most experienced divers and set the foundation for those new to the thrill of swimming under the sea. You can even earn your PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) certification on board instead of training in pools back home.

Built specifically for the shallow waters of the South Pacific, this luxurious cruise ship is able to access small ports (like the port pictured below) that other ships can’t. It is a thrill to look down over white sands in shallow waters, and even more of a pleasure when you arrive at the small ports made possible by Paul Gauguin.
