Life aboard Paul Gauguin
This award-winning luxury cruise ship has a 14 years’ history of cruising these waters. At 19,200 GT, The Gauguin carries 332 guests. The ship features a retractable aft marina platform, and all the equipment you’ll need for water sports and exploration. After its $7 million Brisbane refit in 2012, all accommodations, public areas and fittings are sparkling. Interior décor reflects a real Polynesian feel. Expert lecturers accompany each cruise. There is no entertainment apart from casino action, and overnights are mostly in a port. Service is very personal, with a high staff ratio, along with spacious public areas. Fares are all inclusive of gratuities and table wines. Cruises suit couples and singles, many in their 20s and 30s, who appreciate good cuisine, elegance and comfort. There’ll also be children, honeymooners, professionals and retirees.

Accommodation
Eight classes of staterooms accommodate two, three or four guests. All have ocean views (two portholes, picture window or balcony), and seventy percent have private balconies. Furnishings are well equipped with queen or twin beds and have a stocked mini-bar/refrigerator. Almost every cabin comes with a full-size tub and shower (some only offer a shower), and high-end L'Occitance bath products are standard.

Colourful interiors reflect a Tahitian atmosphere. Five stateroom categories have butler service. One cabin has wheelchair access. Room service with good meals is available around the clock.

Food and Dining
L’Etoile is the main dining room, and the alternative La Veranda, have open seating – so make new acquaintances each evening. L’Etoile, for dinner only, serves a French menu with a Polynesian flavour, with special menus on request. La Veranda, with indoor and al fresco seating, alternates between French and Italian menus, and is by reservation in the evening. Both restaurants have open seating so you can meet new people for dinner each evening. The cuisine and service is of a high standard. Select wines and liquor are included in the fare. Dress is smart casual.

An outdoor bistro Le Grill on the Pool Deck serves informal buffet meals by day. Menus may present a different ethnic dish each day. In the evening this becomes Pacific Grill with a Polynesian menu, and seating is by reservation. Room service is another option, whether you're seeking breakfast served on your balcony, a romantic four-course dinner for two, or a simple midnight snack. During sea days or after dinner relax in the Connoisseur Club for cognac and wines tasting.

Entertainment
A local Tahitian troupe serve as cruise staff, entertainers, musicians and storytellers, in the Grand Salon, adding the unique personality of Tahiti to every cruise. There is live music each evening around the Piano Bar and La Palette lounge, so dance along to your choice of song, or retire to Le Casino. The Gauguin merchandise and black pearls are stocked at La Boutique.

The enrichment program is presented by fascinating lecturers, anthropologists and biologists. Dip in the onboard pool or relax in a deck chair with a good book. From the ship’s marina hop aboard a windsurfer, launch a kayak, or set out for a SCUBA diving expedition. There is a wide variety of shore excursions, including hiking, diving, snorkelling, swimming with stingrays, and visiting a pearl farm. On shore there’s a beach BBQ on Motu Mahana island. The Ambassadors of the Environment Youth Program (for ages 9 to 17) provides young travellers with hands-on experiences around island ecosystems, rainforests, pearl culture, and so much more.
