The perfect introduction-or reintroduction-to the picture-perfect charms of the South Pacific, this 7-night sojourn whisks you away to destinations that played muse for author James A. Michener, painter Paul Gauguin, and many more. Where will you find your inspiration? Vanilla-scented Taha'a? Rugged Moorea? Or perhaps even just watching the Technicolor sunset from your balcony on board the m/s Paul Gauguin.
Day 1 - Embark the m/s Paul Gauguin in Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands
The largest of French Polynesia's 118 islands, Tahiti and its capital city of Papeete are the perfect place to begin your South Pacific sojourn. The Gauguin is already waiting in the harbor for your adventure to begin on the island that's called "the Queen of the Pacific."
Day 2 - Huahine, Society Islands
Don't be fooled by the vibe of this laid-back, secluded island. Many treasures are hidden among the lush rainforest and dramatic terrain. With a bit of exploration, you'll uncover some of the best-preserved archeological sites in French Polynesia. Underwater treasures await as well, with a SCUBA excursion in the lagoon.
Day 3 - Taha'a, Society Islands
As the day unfolds in front of you in Taha'a, where will you go? Exciting shore excursions await, but so does Motu Mahana, Paul Gauguin Cruises' own private islet. Choose from swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, or simply lounging on the beach with a cold drink from our floating bar. Les Gauguines are also on hand to share musical entertainment and Polynesian crafts.
Day 4 & 5 - Bora Bora, Society Islands
Indulge in two full days in Bora Bora, exploring lush peaks, wandering white-sand beaches, and marveling at iconic views of Mount Otemanu. Take the plunge with a SCUBA excursion to see the island's colorful coral reefs, enjoy a sunset jetboat ride, or spend a lazy afternoon on our private beach. Like a priceless Paul Gauguin painting come to life, storied Bora Bora is colorful and unforgettable. The landscape alone will have you searching for adequate adjectives, especially once you see the lagoon-"turquoise" just doesn't do it justice.
Day 6 & 7 - Moorea, Society Islands
Said to be the inspiration for James A. Michener's novel "South Pacific" (and the Rogers & Hammerstein's musical tribute, too), Moorea is a favorite port of travelers, though it might be hard to put your finger on why. The "Magical Island" hypnotizes with multi-hued lagoons, mountain peaks, quaint villages, and pineapples-yes, pineapples. They're said to be the most delicious in all of French Polynesia.
Day 8 - Disembark in Papeete, Tahiti, Society Islands
Tahiti's capital city of Papeete is where we'll part ways and say "until we meet again." But your journey doesn't have to end just yet-Tahiti's resorts, spas, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife await.
