Cruise Line:  Paul Gauguin Cruises

Life Onboard

Pool & Pool Bar

Soak in the South Pacific sunshine with a day spent lounging by the outdoor pool. Cool off in the refreshing water, grab a cocktail from the adjacent Pool Bar, or take in the scenery from a comfortable lounge chair.

Le Casino

Try your luck in Le Casino, which features slot machines, blackjack, and roulette, and is open every evening ( except where prohibited by port regulations).

Piano Bar

Grab a drink at the Piano Bar and enjoy nightly piano entertainment.

La Palette

This versatile lounge offers morning snacks, serves as the backdrop for special events, hosts Polynesian activities led by Les Gauguines, and is the perfect place to grab a nightcap and dance under the stars to live music.

Le Grand Salon

When the sun goes down at sea, Le Grand Salon comes alive with spectacular performances. Every night brings something different, whether it's an ote'a, live piano music, Broadway show tunes, or foot-tapping rock music. Return to the main lounge during the day for a game of table tennis, or a lecture from a roster of anthropologists, archeologists, and marine biologists, as well as visiting experts on other popular topics.

Les Gauguins & Les Gauguines

On every voyage of The Gauguin, you'll be accompanied by their own troupe of Tahitian hosts and entertainers that bring the spirit of Polynesia to life. Enjoy a retelling of ancestral legends through dance, delight in traditional songs onboard and on the private motu, and learn local handicrafts during hands-on demonstrations. Couples celebrating a honeymoon or anniversary can even attend a Polynesian blessing ceremony.

Crew Show

The crew members onboard are certainly expert at providing first-class service, but they also boast many other talents that they are proud to showcase in the crew show. Every voyage offers something different, but you're always guaranteed a night of amazing entertainment, much of which showcases the unique cultures of the crew members' home countries.

Local Entertainment

In addition to Les Gauguins & Les Gauguines, local performers are invited onboard every voyage. Don't miss an evening spent with local group Mamas & Papas, whose dynamic performance of Polynesian dance and singing is a perennial guest favorite.

La Boutique

Just steps from your stateroom, find the perfect memento of your South Pacific cruise, like genuine Tahitian black pearl jewelry exclusively designed for Paul Gauguin Cruises. Tahitian vanilla, local arts and handicrafts, souvenir apparel, and more. It's also the perfect place to pick up any necessary sundries or toiletries, like swimwear, beach attire, sunscreen, and batteries.

Photo Shop

Ensure that your vacation memories last a lifetime with services from Paul Gauguin Cruises’ Photo Shop. A dedicated photographer is onboard throughout the cruise, giving you the opportunity to take home professional photos of significant events, like embarkation, the Captain’s Welcome Reception, and Tahitian Night. Family portraits and casual photo-ops are also available. The Photo Shop is also stocked with everything you need to take your own photos, including single-use cameras, digital cameras, photo accessories, and media cards.

Deep Nature Spa by Algotherm

With its unrivaled approach to beauty and rejuvenation, the onboard spa combines the art of gentle pampering with services that are uniquely tailored to the needs and wishes of each individual. The spa offers an extensive range of services, enveloped in an atmosphere that is both tranquil and luxurious.

Fitness Center

The convenient fitness center is outfitted with the latest fitness equipment, including Lifecycles, treadmills, stair climbers, and weight machines. Other onboard fitness opportunities include a morning mile-long walk around the outdoor decks, and a sunrise Polynesian-inspired Zumba class.
