Paul Gauguin Cruises is now owned by Ponant Cruises and operates the award-winning luxury cruise ship, the m/s Paul Gauguin, providing a luxury cruise experience tailored to the unparalleled wonders of Tahiti, the South Pacific, and Fiji. A second small luxury ship, the m/vTere Moana, began sailing under the Paul Gauguin Cruises banner in December 2012.

The renowned, 5+-star m/s Paul Gauguin was built specifically to sail the waters of Tahiti, French Polynesia and the South Pacific. Launched in 1998, The Gauguin is the longest continually operating year-round luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific. No other luxury ship in history has offered this level of single-destination focus and expertise on a year-round basis for such an extended period of time.

Like The Gauguin, The Moana specialises in warm-weather destinations, with an emphasis on delivering unique itineraries that larger ships cannot offer and exploring hidden ports throughout these regions. The ship sails during the summer months in Europe and winter in the Caribbean and Latin America.
