Virtually undiscovered for centuries, the remote Marquesas afford a true glimpse of the Polynesia of the old. Paul Gauguin Cruises’ one-of-a-kind, 14-night itinerary charts a course to four of these islands, along with the diving mecca of the Tuamotus archipelago and the majestic beauty of the Society Islands.
On the first of May, we held an amazing event in beautiful Golfo di Aranci during our Roundtrip Rome voyage. Located on the northeast coast of Sardinia, overlooking the Gulf of Olbia, this colorful, Italian fishing village attracts visitors from around the world to its many white-sand beaches, where crystal-clear waters invite diving. It was also the perfect place for an m/v Tere Moana mini swim marathon.
The m/s Paul Gauguin is charting a course to new destinations this year, venturing across wider seas. Our Fiji & Australia sailings highlight marine life, culture, natural wonders, and World War II history. These distinctive voyages aboard The Gauguin include remote islands with colorful and rich histories as colonial trading hubs and World War II sites, rarely explored Papua New Guinea, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, and exotic Fiji.
