Paul Gauguin Cruises: m/s Paul Gauguin
Designed specifically to glide in luxury through the shallow seas of the South Pacific, The Gauguin is a small-ship cruiser’s dream. She delivers travelers to intimate ports inaccessible to larger cruise ships, all the while providing a travel experience that is nothing short of luxurious. Once on board, guests enjoy newly-decorated spacious suites and staterooms (more than 70% with private balconies), an onboard watersports marina, three dining venues, an extensive spa, and five-star service. Life on The Gauguin also reflects the beauty and rich cultural heritage of the islands she calls upon, with a warm, friendly feel, informal setting, and even a beloved troupe of Les Gauguin and Les Gauguines—local Tahitians who serve as onboard hosts and hostesses, entertainers, and storytellers.

Shipboard Policies
  • Medical Emergencies
    A licensed and registered doctor and nurse are on board and available for professional and emergency services, which are available at customary charges. The ship's medical center is designed to provide medical care for certain temporary illnesses and accidents, and is not intended or capable of providing ongoing treatment of pre-existing medical conditions.

  • Smoking Policy
    For the comfort, convenience, and safety of all guests, smoking is prohibited in any enclosed dining venue and is permitted only in specifically designated outdoor smoking areas. These include the forward outdoor areas on Deck 5 (starboard and port sides), La Palette (outside area, starboard side only), and the Bar Du Soleil (starboard side only). Cigar smoking is permitted only at La Palette. Smoking is prohibited in staterooms, suites, and private balconies, and pipe smoking is not allowed anywhere on board.

    Smoking Safety Notice: Guests MUST always use ashtrays provided in the designated smoking areas and never throw cigarettes overboard as they could be blown back into the ship and cause a fire.

  • Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required
    Guests requiring a special diet, or special food items aboard the ship, must notify the Reservations Department at least eight weeks prior to their sailing date. This is particularly important if specially purchased food items are required. After boarding, please contact the Maitre d' to discuss any requirements. General dietary needs such as low-salt or low-cholesterol foods can be satisfied on board the ship simply by speaking with the dining wait staff.

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs
    For guests requiring oxygen equipment, an oxygen concentrator is the only form of oxygen equipment allowed aboard ship and must be provided by the guest. PGC wheelchairs on board are for emergency purposes only. Guests requiring a wheelchair for mobility must provide their own.
  • Pregnancy Policy
    Pregnant women should consult with their doctor prior to sailing with Paul Gauguin Cruises, as there is no prenatal care on board. Paul Gauguin Cruises will not accept any guest six months (24 weeks) or more into pregnancy at the time of sailing due to the lack of neonatal care facilities on board. Pregnant guests under six months (24 weeks) must provide a doctor’s written permission prior to sailing that states she is fit to travel by sea and air (if Paul Gauguin Cruises booked their air). This must be faxed to Reservations, Attn: Special Requests-Medical at 1(425)732-7198. The fax must reference the Guest’s name, ship name, and sailing date. The permission must be dated within 30 days of the cruise departure date. The Master in conjunction with the Ship’s Doctor has the right to deny boarding if in his professional opinion there may not be adequate shoreside medical facilities available in port during their cruise.

  • Currency
    The U.S. Dollar is the standard currency aboard The Gauguin, and you may exchange dollars for small denominations of local currency* at the reception desk. For your convenience at the time of embarkation, Paul Gauguin Cruises will request a confidential registration of an accepted credit card. The night prior to your final disembarkation from the ship, a detailed statement of your shipboard charges for onboard services and products will be delivered to your suite or stateroom. All such charges must be paid in full by cash or accepted credit card (Visa®, Mastercard®, or American Express®).

    *Guests will NOT be able to exchange dollars for local currency for the following countries:

    • Fiji: Fijian dollar
    • Vanuatu: Vanuatu vatu

    The ship is equipped with a state-of-the-art communication system. Internet access is complimentary for guests in the Owner's and Grand Suites, and available for a nominal fee for all other guests at the following rates:

    • Pay-As-You-Go: $0.55 per minute
    • Small Package (individual light user): $35 for 100 minutes
    • Medium Package (individual heavy user): $62.50 for 250 minutes
    • Large Package (family share and power user): $80 for 400 minutes
    • Unlimited Daily Time Plan: $29.00 per day. The Unlimited Daily Time Plan must be purchased for the entire length of the voyage, is billed in 24-hour increments based at the time of purchase, and will automatically calculate the total price at the time of purchase.

    Please note that plan upgrades are not available, and no credit is given for unused minutes. Pay-As-You-Go is available until 10PM the last night of the cruise. Time Plan minutes can be used until 10AM the following day.

    Please note: Internet connectivity at sea is much different than that on land. The ship relies on satellites to connect to the Internet. A typical broadband connection at home is 20-40 times faster than what is available onboard the vessel. The connection to the ship is also shared by everyone onboard. This will also have an impact on the connection speed.
