As you board the ship, get greeted by friendly Gauguines & Gauguins as they take part in conveying the spirit of Paul Gauguin throughout your journey. In the company of this dynamic Polynesian team, enjoy yourself and make the most of this one-of-a-kind cruise experience as you enjoy the on-going and refined art of doing and living. They will take you through songs, dances, stories and legends during your voyage, and you will even be introduced to their native Tahitian language, jewelry making techniques and even the art of tying pareos.
