The ‘Paul Gauguin’ is a luxurious small ship, carrying just 332 guests. With all-oceanview suites, feather duvets and a full-size bath in the bathroom it leaves nothing to be desired.

- Cook Islands & Society Islands – 12 days cruising from Tahiti to Huahine in the Society Islands, before crossing to Aitutaki and Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Then it’s back to Bora Bora, Taha’a and Moorea in the Society Islands before returning to Tahiti
- the ultimate trip is a 14-night cruise from Tahiti to Fakarava in the Tuamotus, north to Omoa, Atuona, Tahuata and Tiaohae in the Marquesas, before heading to the Society Islands as above, and back to Papeete
