Featured for 2018 is a brand-new destination available with no other cruise line: Tahiti Iti. The smaller of the two landmasses that comprise the island of Tahiti, tiny Tahiti Iti offers you big discoveries with its wild coastline, ancient petroglyphs and marae (temples), and pockets of authentic Polynesian culture. Because The Gauguin is owned by French Polynesia’s leading luxury hotel and cruise operator, we are the experts to the region, with resources no one else can match. Paul Gauguin Cruises offers a call on the port city of Vairao on four departures of a new 7-night Society Islands & Tahiti Iti itinerary and a special sailing of the 10-night Society Islands & Tuamotus itinerary.

The award-winning itineraries that form the centerpiece of Paul Gauguin Cruise sailing schedule each year:
- Tahiti & the Society Islands (7 nights): the best-selling voyage reveals the best of French Polynesia in just one week, with port calls on Tahiti, Huahine, Bora Bora, Moorea, and their own private motu off the coast of Taha’a.
- Society Islands & Tuamotus (10 nights): This voyage offers guests the chance to explore two French Polynesian archipelagos—the spectacular Society Islands and the Tuamotus, a diver’s paradise—at a more relaxed pace.
- Cook Islands & Society Islands (11 nights): This odyssey showcases the breathtaking scenic diversity of the Cook Islands, with their spectacular lagoons and unique culture, and The Gauguin’s Society Islands home.
- Marquesas, Tuamotus & Society Islands (14 nights): Explore the wild and remote Marquesas islands, where artist Paul Gauguin found his muse … the extraordinary coral reefs of the Tuamotus … and the idyllic Society Islands. Divers take note: The Gauguin offers you your only opportunity to explore the underwater world of the Marquesas, as there are no dive centers in these pristine islands.
All 2018 voyages feature the ship’s signature hospitality and service, luxurious amenities, gourmet dining, complimentary use of snorkeling equipment, complimentary watersports (kayaking, windsurfing, and paddleboarding from the ship’s retractable marina), optional SCUBA diving programs, and more. Guest experts in a wide range of special interests will come aboard select voyages to offer insights, lectures, performances, demonstrations, and workshops. And shore excursions by land and sea are also available to enhance your exploration of these idyllic islands.
In addition, all 2018 voyages will offer access to Paul Gauguin Cruises’ private beach retreats: a white-sand beach in Bora Bora offering watersports, volleyball, refreshments, and stunning views of the iconic Mount Otemanu; and a private motu off the coast of Taha’a, with watersports, volleyball, cooking and cultural demonstrations, full and floating bars, optional overwater massage, and a sumptuous barbecue feast.
