    Itinerary

    Day 1 - Embark the m/s Paul Gauguin in Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands

    Get reacquainted with Tahiti's dynamic capital city - and with fellow past guests of The Gauguin - as you embark ship for this special Reunion Cruise. Or, if you are new to the Paul Gauguin experience, begin discovering why so many of our guests travel with us again and again.

    Day 2 - Huahine, Society Islands

    Known as "The Garden Island," Huahine's lush rainforests and dramatic terrain surround sacred sites and legendary landmarks that are among the best-preserved archeological sites in French Polynesia. If Huahine's expansive lagoon is calling your name, enjoy a SCUBA diving excursion or picnic on the beach.

    Day 3 - Taha'a (Motu Mahana), Society Islands

    Embark on your choice of exciting shore excursions today, or spend your whole day relaxing on Motu Mahana, our very own private islet. Enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking, or simply lounge on the beach with a chilled beverage from our floating bar. Les Gauguines will also be on hand to provide musical entertainment and demonstrate traditional Polynesian crafts. A delicious barbecue lunch is provided.

    Day 4 - At Sea

    Spend the day enjoying The Gauguin's Polynesian ambiance: casual, leisurely, and graceful. Perhaps you'll take in a lecture by one of our special guests, and then reflect on your day over classic French cuisine at La Veranda.

    Day 5 - Aitutaki, Cook Islands

    While the island of Aitutaki may be small, it's big on beauty, thanks to its coral reef-enclosed lagoon. Witness its splendor up-close with a leisurely beach visit. Don't forget to save time to venture into the village of Arutanga, where you'll find the oldest church in the Cooks, which dates from 1829.

    Day 6 - Rarotonga, Cook Islands

    Rugged Rarotonga is the most mountainous of all the Cook Islands, and time here is best spent exploring its natural beauty. Snorkel in Muri Lagoon, wander the lush Takitumi Conservation Area, or take a hike into the island's dense interior with Pa, a local naturalist.

    Day 7 - At Sea

    Today, take advantage of all The Gauguin has to offer. Perhaps you'll enjoy a massage at our luxurious spa or relax on the deck with a drink from the pool bar.

    Day 8 - Bora Bora, Society Islands

    A bucket list destination for many, stunning Bora Bora welcomes you with lush peaks, white-sand beaches, colorful coral reefs, and romantic lagoons. Experience the natural beauty of the island with an optional snorkeling excursion, sunset jetboat ride, or a helicopter tour that flies you over Bora Bora's iconic Mount Otemanu.

    Day 9 - Taha'a (Motu Mahana), Society Islands

    This unique itinerary offers you an additional day on our private island paradise. Relax in a lounge chair with a good book and a refreshing beverage, or set out over the lagoon in a kayak, compliments of Paul Gauguin Cruises. Perhaps you'll indulge in an overwater massage. Or experience Tahitian music and culture firsthand as our own troupe of entertainers serenade you and demonstrate local cooking and crafts.

    Day 10 - Moorea, Society Islands

    Vibrant colors abound on Moorea, in everything from fresh fruits and flowers to multi-hued lagoons, and from spectacular mountain peaks to palm-fringed beaches. Shop for local handicrafts, embark on an optional dolphin-watching expedition with a marine biologist, and sample the local pineapples, said to be the most delicious in all of French Polynesia.

    Day 11 - Disembark in Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands

    Tahiti's capital city of Papeete welcomes you back with emerald hillsides, sapphire waters, and warm breezes. If you're not ready for your South Pacific vacation to end, spend a few days here experiencing resorts, spas, restaurants, nightlife, and shopping.
