Paul Gauguin Cruises has been sailing the season for over 25 years, offering small-ship cruises in exotic French Polynesia. Meanwhile, it was named after the French artist, Paul Gauguin, who was inspired by the South Pacific and spent his final years on Hiva Oa, one of the remote and beautiful Marquesas Islands. Meanwhile, Ponant purchased Paul Gauguin Cruises in 2019.

As a small cruise ship, the Gauguin takes guests to intimate ports that are inaccessible to larger cruise ships. On board, guests stay in luxurious, newly decorated suites and staterooms, many of which feature private balconies.

Activities and amenities on the ship include an onboard water sports marina, a spa and three dining venues. Meanwhile, guests are introduced to local Tahitians, who act as onboard hosts, storytellers and entertainers.
