The m/s Paul Gauguin was designed specifically to sail the shallow seas of Tahiti and French Polynesia, visiting small ports that larger ships can’t reach and effortlessly blending into the stunning natural beauty of the South Seas.
These same characteristcs make the Paul Gauguin perfect for the waters of the Andaman Sea. She offers an extension of the informal, relaxing environment of the islands, coupled with five-star service, comfort and luxury.

The Paul Gaugin features spacious suites and staterooms (more than 70% with private balconies),
an onboard water sports marina, a choice of three open-seating dining venues and an extensive spa are among her luxurious attributes. The atmosphere aboard ship radiates warmth, informality, and Polynesian flair. And our beloved troupe of Gauguines—a local Tahitian group who serve as cruise staff, entertainers and storytellers—add the unique personality of Tahiti to every cruise.

Singapore: This may be the perfect Asian city to spend a few days, for Singapore has everything you can imagine, in abundance.It is also one of the safest cities in the world. At first glance, Singapore appears surprisingly modern — but look again. A harmonious blend of Chinese, Malay, and Indian cultures have inspired the city’s cuisine, art, and architecture, creating a place rich in contrast and color. Brimming with unbridled energy, Singapore and its welcoming people, embody the finest of both the East and West. Singapore is one of the most enjoyable cities in Southeast Asia. As you zoom in from one of the world's best airports along the lushly tree-shaded expressway or on the zippy MRT train line, you'll quickly realize this is no traffic-snarled Bangkok.

Then, as you are drinking and dancing until dawn in the city's pubs and clubs, or sipping a cocktail surrounded by the colonial elegance of a Raffles Hotel veranda you will understand the unique and civilized nature of Singapore. Few cities in Southeast Asia can boast Singapore's fascinating ethnic brew. Where else in the world can you dip into the cultures of China, India and Muslim Malaysia all in one day, against a backdrop of ultra-modern Western commerce? Not only has Singapore's history of migration left a rich cultural and architectural legacy that makes wandering the streets an absorbing delight, it has created one of the world's great eating capitals.

Food is the national obsession - and it's not difficult to see why.
Sitting out under the stars at a bustling hawker centre with a few bottles of Tiger beer and diving into an enormous array of Asian dishes is one of the iconic Singaporean experiences. Sambal stingray, char kway teow, oyster omelette, chicken rice, clay-pot seafood, fish head curry, beef rendang…the list is as long as it is delicious. And, of course, if your credit card hasn't already taken a battering in the shops, the city's restaurants are some of the most stylish and innovative in the region.

If there's one thing more stylish than the bars and restaurants, it's the boutiques that have made Singapore a byword in Asia for extravagant shopping.
Away from the Gucci and Louis Vuitton onslaught of Orchard Rd, however, there are bargains to be found on everything from clothes to electronics - and a range of art and antique shops that few Asian cities can match. It's not all strait-laced conformity. You don't have to look far to find echoes of the island's colorful, rakish past, or evidence of a thriving and creatively unfettered artistic community. Singapore's soul is alive and well - and it is unique. 

Kuala Lumpur: A delightful mix of cross-cultural influences and traditions, Kuala Lumpur radiates an exciting, enticing charm, which will no doubt pique your interest throughout your stay. Let the city's warmth embrace you as you lose yourself in its unique blend of tradition, culture old world charm and new world sophistication. Explore its nooks and crannies, and you'll discover captivating sights, sensational sounds, aromatic smells and fantastic people. Kuala Lumpur never sleeps at night as it is one of the best cities in Malaysia for it's nightlife entertainment. If you’re looking for the best clubs for partying, it’s all can be found in Kuala Lumpur.

Kuala Lumpur, affectionately known as KL, is an amazing cultural melting pot.
Here, you will wander through communities of Chinese, Malays, South Indians, East Malaysian ethnic groups, Thais, Indonesians, Sikhs and a huge community of expats. Each community offering its own festivals, food, music, art and fashion while influencing each other's cultures.

 The architecture is somewhat eccentric and is certainly unique, from hundred year old mansions to awe-inspiring sky scrapers, and all within metres of each other. Treat your tastebuds to Kuala Lumpur's extremely varied cuisine, which is certainly a tasty adventure in itself!



Phuket Hedonistic: Phuket seduces honeymooners, heiresses, surfer babes and a host of pleasure seekers from around the world. Thailand’s largest and most popular island, Phuket is as colorful as it is cosmopolitan and one of the world’s most famous dream destinations. Phuket (poo-get) boasts some lush inland vistas, including a few remote swathes of rainforest on Ko Yao, but the island really comes into its own along its western shoreline, where hunter-green foliage meets the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea.

The mile upon sandy mile of coastline boasts tons of water sports, delectable restaurants and decadent resorts.
Whether it’s swanky resorts of the Laguna complex, the relaxed and less developed beach of Nai Han, or the night markets of old Phuket Town, Phuket has something to satisfy every appetite. Just don’t forget your Speedos.

Ko Phi Phi: Ko Phi Phi, or Phi Phi Island, is one of the most talked about places in Southeast Asia, with its natural beauty and reputation for good times putting it firmly on the map of must see places.The beauty of the island is unparalleled, even in a region of the world renowned for its stunning destinations. Limestone cliffs, turquoise waters, white sand beaches and miles of trackless forest make Phi Phi a perfect tropical island.

Krabi: Krabi, a province on southern Thailand’s Andaman coast, is an almost otherworldly region of labyrinthine archipelagos, where islands seem to erupt vertically out of the sea and secluded beaches are only accessible by colorfully adorned long tail boats. Krabi’s myriad of bays and coves have sheltered pirates, merchants, and sea gypsies for thousands of years and archaeological evidence indicates that Krabi was originally inhabited as early as 25,000 - 35,000 years ago!

Phi Phi: Leh Phi Phi Island is Thailand's island-superstar. You may have seen it in the movies when parts of the movie "The Beach" with Leonardo DiCaprio was filmed there. It's the topic of conversation for travelers all over Thailand. For some, it's the only reason to touchdown in Phuket. Even with all the hype, it doesn't disappoint. Phi Phi's beauty is a large chunk of the allure. The islands, when approached by boat, rise from the sea like a fortress. Sheer cliffs tower overhead, then give way to beach-fronted jungle. It's love at first sight. The second part of the why-we-love-this-place story is attitude: few places on the planet are this laid-back. Of the two islands, one is completely free of human inhabitants (Phi Phi Leh), and the other is without roads (Phi Phi Don). There's no schedule, no hustle-and-bustle, no reason to be in a hurry.

This Ménage a Asia adventure will feature a myriad of on ship and on shore activities both during the day and night.From exciting nights ashore in Kula Lumpur and Phuket to days playing on some of the most exotic beaches in the world, your time ashore in Asia is bound to be the experience of a lifetime. Of course the fun does not stop there because while you are on the ship we have an array of entertainment and fun parties lined up to keep a smile on your face!


Daytime Fun: We are anchoring off of some of the most exotic, and beautiful beaches in the world. These will include those that are desolate and hidden to others that are party central. Something different every day to enjoy. Whether you are a diver, fisherman, sailor or sand queen there will be something for everyone.

Nighttime Fun:
So nighttime is where it really heats up. We are going to have opportunities to go ashore in some of the wildest and most erotic places to indulge all of your senses and desires. Of course on the ship the other nights the parties are going to be off the hook with entertainment on the main stage in the theater, music from our lifestyle DJ, theme nights and other main stage entertainment.

Late Night Fun: Group Playroom
This is always a popular spot with an exotic Asian décor and wall to wall mattresses with fresh crisp sheets for each new couple or group. In addition to the sexy individual couple and group play, there will also be a variety of very sexy classes run by our playroom pleasure hosts.

Sessions in the past have included:
  • The Art of Erotic Touch
  • Kissing is More Than Foreplay
  • How to Incorporate Fetishes into Sex Play
  • How to Perform Fellatio and Cunnilingus
  • How to Make Sex Fun 

FYI – This is not a clinical setting but rather a full contact experience
On this cruise there will also be a host of new sessions. We have a large theater in the round so we are going to make very good use of it.

Entertainment Venues on the Ship: Casino and Piano Bar
On any evening, pulses run high in Le Casino. Or when refreshments are in order, the Piano Bar provides a warmly relaxing environment.

Le Grand Salon: This is the magnificent theatre where all of the erotic and musical shows will take place each night. We are planning some exciting things so stay tuned-there’s more to come!

La Palette Lounge: Here you will also find some more intimate performances by our guest artists. On other evenings sing along at the piano bar in this spectacular observation lounge atop the ship. At night it's transformed into a romantic nightclub where a chanteuse sings the Parisian blues and couples sway on the indoor/outdoor dance floor.


Dining:

Unlike the All-Inclusive resorts you may have visited dining on the Paul Gauguin is a very unique experience, yes it is all included but it is not a sea of mediocre food.The food is all 5-star quality and the assortment of choices will satisfy everyone. But please don’t confuse 5-star with stuffy because it is not. While you do have to wear clothes in the dining rooms nothing says that they cannot be super sexy and see through, as a matter of fact, it's encouraged!

L'Etoile
Enjoy fine French cuisine with a Polynesian accent amid the classic furnishings and fluted shell lighting reminiscent of one of the refined dining establishments in Paris. Here delectable cuisine is artfully presented and guests receive the most diligent attention.

Le Grill
Greet the sun with a buffet breakfast at Le Grill. Or enjoy lunch by the pool on a choice of grilled favorites, salads and fresh tropical fruits. At night Le Grill is transformed into a cozy indoor/outdoor restaurant serving grilled specialties in a more casual atmosphere. Dinner reservations are required at Le Grill.

La Veranda
La Veranda's floor to ceiling windows, indoor and al fresco seating, and refined atmosphere make it the perfect place to enjoy breakfast and lunch. In both reality and the popular imagination no other country has approached France in terms of elevating its cuisine to a high art form. At dinner, La Veranda is transformed into an elegant French Bistro offering the finest in French cuisine, wine selections and ambiance. The Paul Gauguin chefs have created a menu for La Veranda not merely to explore the culinary highways and byways of France but to provide an extraordinary dining experience that captures the very essence of the country. Dinner reservations are required in La Veranda.

24 Hour In Cabin Dining
A select room service menu is available around the clock. During normal dining hours, meals can also be ordered off of the restaurant menus and enjoyed in the privacy of your stateroom.

Water sports are a highlight of the Polynesian experience. The ship's small size allows it to navigate in shallow lagoons and narrow channels where larger ships may not sail. With the specially designed retractable water sports platform, guests may descend to sea level where they can conveniently hop aboard a windsurfer, launch a kayak, try a little waterskiing or set out for a SCUBA diving expedition. A scuba certification program is offered on board. Dive into the blue and come face to face with a colorful parade of marine life, from magnificent parrot fish and clownfish to stately sea turtles. Your first dive into crystal-clear waters will spoil you for anything else under the sun-or the seven seas.

Water sports are a highlight of the Andaman Sea experience, and the m/s Paul Gauguin is constructed to take full advantage of these irresistible waters, with accessibility to ports and adventures that other ships can't offer.
The ship's small footprint enables it to navigate lagoons that larger ships would never dare to enter. And our retractable, onboard Water sports Marina brings you down to sea level, where you can hop aboard a windsurfer, launch a kayak, try waterskiing, or embark on our Zodiac for optional diving adventures. Even if you've never been diving, you can take advantage of our onboard scuba lessons. The m/s Paul Gauguin is the only luxury ship to offer PADI certification onboard for novice divers as well as classes at all levels, from snorkeling to advanced scuba diving techniques, supervised by our own staff of PADI dive masters. For the convenience of our guests, all necessary equipment, including an air compressor to refill scuba tanks, is onboard.



Spa Paul Gauguin is home to an award-winning luxury spa. With its unrivaled approach to spa and beauty, services are tailored uniquely to the needs of each individual. Designed as a luxurious refuge from everyday stresses, our spa combines the art of gentle pampering with an extensive range of physical regimens including health and revitalization. Treatments include skin care therapies, skin exfoliating, massage, reflexology, aromatherapy, body wraps, facials and beauty treatments.
