Every stateroom on the MS Paul Gauguin has an ocean view, and nearly 70% of suites have a private balcony. Enjoy standard features such as a bathroom with a full-size tub, complimentary bathrobes and slippers, and an in-room refrigerator stocked with soft drinks and bottled water – all at no extra charge. Ocean View staterooms start at a spacious 200 square feet, and veranda staterooms and above come with a private butler. Staterooms are outfitted in soothing teaks, tans and blues, and Polynesian patterns adding playful accents.
Dining & Gastronomy
Enjoy a mixture of fine French cuisine and Polynesian specialties onboard. The Gauguin features three different onboard restaurants, each of which offers an adventurous, ever-changing array of dishes as well as a static menu of crowd-pleasing favorites. Dine on a sumptuous chicken cordon bleu, freshly-seared salmon, or perfectly-prepared steak, or branch out with a savory seafood creation unique to French Polynesia. A sommelier will help you pair the perfect wine with every dish, and the attentive wait staff will make sure your glass is always full.
Entertainment and Activities
On the MS Paul Gauguin, the destinations are the stars of the show. Relax on the beach on one of the cruise line's two private islands, wind surf in a marina, or snorkel among schools of fish just off the shore. Additional shore excursions can be arranged so you can venture further inland to explore the lush tropical forests and exotic wildlife of the islands. One highlight of every cruise is when a group of French Polynesian performers board the ship to teach guests about their culture, a rare chance to get a glimpse of the authentic culture of this island nation.
The luxurious Deep nature Spa offers innovative beauty treatments such as scrubs, wraps and massages. Indulge in a little me-time on sea days with a pampering spa treatment to leave you feeling fresh and rejuvenated. The spa also offers treatment and styling for hair, skin, and nails. You may additionally enjoy shopping for tropical-themed clothing and jewelry at the onboard boutique, or a round of poker at the casino.
Passengers should pack loose-fitting, natural-fiber clothing to keep comfortable in the tropical heat. Reef shoes are also a must-have, to protect your feet from coral, urchins, and rocks as you wade in the tide. The evening dress code is country club casual, and passengers should be prepared to wear a collared shirt or blouse, skirt, or slacks at dinner.
