Paul Gauguin's 2025 features a new cruise itinerary

The 330-passenger Paul Gauguin will offer a new itinerary in 2025 and more Bora Bora calls, nearly all with an overnight stay
Paul Gauguin Cruises' 2025 program has six itineraries — one new — exploring Tahiti, French Polynesia, Fiji and the South Pacific.

The itineraries were previewed to the line’s accredited PEARLS (Partners  Earn  Added  Rewards and  Learn to Sell), who can book their clients during an exclusive window from June 9-14.

Reservations for the public open June 15.

New itinerary

New for 2025 is the 10-night 'More Tuamotus & Society Islands' itinerary featuring the line’s first overnight stay in Fakarava, Tuamotu Archipelago, a UNESCO-listed Biosphere Reserve renowned for its marine habitat. The voyage also includes overnights at Bora Bora and Papeete, Society Islands; with visits to Rangiroa, Tuamotu Archipelago; Moorea, Huahine, Raiatea, and Motu Mahana (Taha’a), Society Islands. 

'As the longest continually operating cruise line in French Polynesia and the South Pacific, we take great pride in revealing Polynesia with artful authenticity and all-inclusive luxury,' said Navin Sawhney, CEO Americas for Paul Gauguin Cruises and its parent, Ponant.

More Bora Bora

Highlights of the 2025 deployment include more Bora Bora, an enduring favorite featured on most itineraries, nearly all with an overnight stay.

Several itineraries provide overnights in Moorea, and nearly every cruise includes a visit to the line’s private islet, Motu Mahana off the coast of Taha’a.

Beyond the deep exploration of these Society Islands destinations, Paul Gauguin itineraries navigate the Cook Islands, the Marquesas and the Tuamotus. Also included are rare visits to the Kingdom of Tonga and the isles of Fiji.

All voyages travel round-trip from Papeete, Tahiti, except for two 14-night itineraries cruising between Papeete and Lautoka, Fiji.
