Paul Gauguin Cruises is the only cruise line that sails to the unspoiled paradise of Tahiti Iti, which offers rugged cliffs, postcard-perfect waterfalls, stunning beaches, and the famous wave of Teahupo'o.
The Gauguin's 2018 sailing schedule also features its signature voyages which showcase a host of exquisite islands with white-sand beaches, aqua lagoons, mist-laden mountains, and warm Polynesian culture.
