Paul Gauguin Cruises is celebrating 25 years of sailing in French Polynesia aboard the company’s ship, the Paul Gauguin.

To mark the special occasion, the cruise line launched a commemorative video highlighting the ship’s features and its connection to The Islands of Tahiti. 

“The Gauguin continues to charm travelers from all over the world, enticing couples, honeymooners, families, nature-lovers and adventure-seekers to discover the wonders of French Polynesia with one-of-a-kind expertise, artful authenticity and all-inclusive excellence,” said Navin Sawhney, CEO Americas for Paul Gauguin Cruises.

“As we celebrate this 25th year, we are incredibly grateful to our loyal guests and valued travel partners for their continued devotion to Paul Gauguin Cruises and look forward to a year of nostalgic celebration and new discovery.

“The Gauguin remains the region’s gold standard in small-ship luxury cruising with her beautifully reimagined décor, her carefree ambiance, and most especially her exceptional crew who bring the enriching experience to life every day with heartfelt passion and hospitality.”  

The cruise brand has established long-standing relationships with the local communities throughout the area which allows for a more personalized guest experience onboard and ashore.

Jean-Marc Mocellin, director general/CEO of Tahiti Tourisme, said: “On this very special 25th Anniversary occasion, we are delighted to celebrate The Gauguinas the longest continually operating luxury ship in Tahiti—one that has become an extension of our islands and is a beautiful destination unto herself.

Paul Gauguin Cruises is a wonderful partner and through thoughtfully planned itineraries and long-established relationships, The Gauguin’s year-round presence in French Polynesia continues to weave the unique personalities of each archipelago into a beautiful tapestry of Tahitian culture, lore, and breathtaking beauty.”
