Paul Gauguin Cruises features two seven-night Tahiti & the Society Islands voyages on The Gauguin during the festive season.
On the 23 December 2017 voyage, guests can enjoy Christmas on French Polynesia’s beaches, or the New Year on the South Seas in festive style during the 30 December 2017 cruise.
The seven-night Tahiti & the Society Islands festive cruises depart Papeete, Tahiti and sail to Huahine, Taha’a (Motu Mahana), Bora Bora (overnight) and Moorea (overnight) in the Society Islands.
In addition to cruising in French Polynesia and highlighting Polynesian culture, these voyages feature complimentary access to the cruise lines’ two retreats—Motu Mahana, an islet off the coast of Taha’a, and a private beach in Bora Bora.
The 23 December sailing features Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) scientist Martin Robards PhD, who will share his expertise in a series of lectures on topics that include WCS’ Global Marine Programme, the South Pacific and global connectivity and Arctic conservation.
Both voyages feature the Stewards of Nature programme, which invites guests to discover and value nature through hands-on, interactive learning for children and teens ages 7-17, as well as older family members.
Every day of the cruise, there is a combination of naturalist-led island and/or beach excursions, science activities, crafts, games and other adventures.
Fly/cruise prices for the two voyages start from £4,781 per person if booked before 31 August and from £5629 per person if booked after 31 August.
