Tahiti- For the Young & the Young of Heart

Paul Gauguin Best of the Best in all Ways!

So what more could you ask for- Travel & Leisure's 2014 World's Best Award for Small Ship Cruising, Free Airfare from LAX, Jean-Michel Cousteau's Youth Program- Free!- 50% off cruise fares-  oh and did I mention that you are in Tahiti!?!  And if you get really excited you can charter the whole ship!


Tahiti.  The word evokes visions of an island paradise.  With 118 islands boasting high, rugged mountain peaks, coral reefs, turquoise-blue lagoons, white sand, palm-fringed beaches and luxuriously intimate resorts- there is definitely something for everyone.  

Many islands are crowned with jagged peaks will others appear to barely float above the breaking waves.  Spanning an area in the South Pacific as large as Western Europe, the total land mass of all the islands adds up to an area only slightly larger than the tiny state of Rhode Island.

Easier to travel to than you might imagine, Tahiti's Faa'a International Airport is under 8 hours by air from LAX, with daily non-stop flights.  As far south as the equator as Hawaii is north, Tahiti is halfway between California and Australia, on the same side of the International Date Line as North America, and the same time zone as Hawaii (three hours behind CA and in the winter only 2)

Paul Gauguin Ship

The m/s Paul Gauguin was designed specifically to sail the shallow seas of Tahiti, Fiji, and the South Pacific, visiting small ports that larger ships can't reach and effortlessly blending into the stunning natural beauty of the South Seas. She offers an extension of the informal, relaxing environment of the islands, coupled with five-star service, comfort, and luxury. Spacious suites and staterooms (more than 70% with private balconies), an onboard watersports marina, a choice of three open-seating dining venues, and an extensive spa are among her luxurious attributes. The atmosphere aboard our recently renovated ship radiates warmth, informality, and Polynesian flair. And their beloved troupe of Gauguines—local Tahitians who serve as cruise staff, entertainers, and storytellers—add the unique personality of Tahiti to every sailing.
