Paul Gauguin Cruises Unveils 2013 Itineraries

South Pacific’s largest cruise operator Paul Gauguin Cruises has unveiled its 2013 voyages, featuring 19 itineraries visiting 22 countries by the line’s luxury ships, ms Paul Gauguin and mv Tere Moana. The former, recently revamped at a cost of USD 7 million, will continue sailing year-round in French Polynesia, while her new fleetmate launching in December 2012 will cruise the Caribbean, Europe and Central America.


ms Paul Gauguin

The highest-rated and longest continually sailing luxury cruise ship in French Polynesia and the South Pacific will offer 5 itineraries ranging from 7 to 14 nights, calling at ports including Aitutaki, Atuona, Fakarava, Hapatoni, Huahine, Moorea, Nuku Hiva, Omoa, Papeete, Raiatea, Rangiroa, Rarotonga, Rurutu and Taha’a. At the heart of each are the exquisite Society Islands, where guests can enjoy complimentary use of the line’s private island, Motu Mahana, as well as the white sandy beach in Bora Bora.

With a capacity of just 90 guests, the new mv Tere Moana will begin her inaugural season in the Caribbean with 7-night St. Martin roundtrips visiting Basseterre, Jost Van Dyke, Les Saintes, St. Barts, Tortola and Virgin Gorda in December 2012. She then cruises the Central American coast in January and February 2013, sailing 13- and 14-night itineraries featuring a classic transit of the Panama Canal and exploration of Costa Rica’s wildlife reserves before returning to the Caribbean in March 2013.


The ship crosses the Atlantic Ocean to Europe and the Mediterranean on a 14-night cruise from St. Martin to Lisbon via Las Palmas and Madeira. 7- to 14-night voyages cover Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, the French and Italian Rivieras, Spanish coast, Black Sea and the idyllic Greek isles, including 3 special sailings that transit the Corinth Canal, a one-of-a-kind engineering marvel. Upon completion of her Mediterranean deployment, mv Tere Moana returns across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean from Malaga.
