The All-Inclusive Crystal Experience® is a heady combination of indulgent services and enriching discovery having been voted the ‘Worlds’ Best Cruise Line’ more than any other cruise line, hotel or resort in history. Since their debut in 1990, they have been elevating and redefining the traditional notions of luxury cruising with innovative excellence, exquisitely designed ships, bold itineraries and the highest standards of personalised service at sea and on land.

A proven leader in innovation, they were the first cruise line to partner with celebrity chefs— Silk Road and The Sushi Bar are the only sea-going restaurants in Nobu Matsuhisa’s worldwide empire; the first to debut a Computer University@Sea® with personal e-mail and Internet services; and the first luxury line to transit the Northwest Passage in 2016 and offer four distinct World Cruise options in 2018.

From launching the interactive Creative Learning Institute® with complimentary courses, to pushing the boundaries of gastronomic discovery with a cutting-edge new Modern Cuisine menu, they are continually adding new programmes and features to their award-winning fleet. In the last five years alone, Crystal® has invested more than $140 million in the stylish redesign and sophisticated technologies aboard their ships, rewarding their loyal Crystal Society® members and travel agent partners with an experience that is always fresh, new and exciting.

And over the next 3 years, Crystal Cruises will expand, effectively establishing three brand new classes of cruising in Ocean, River & Yachting – as well as its own Boeing 777 aircraft, as Crystal Luxury Air takes to the skies.

The m/s Paul Gauguin was designed specifically to sail the shallow seas of Tahiti and the South Pacific, visiting small ports that larger ships can’t reach and effortlessly blending into the stunning natural beauty of the South Seas.

She offers an extension of the informal, relaxing environment of the islands, coupled with five-star service, comfort, and luxury. Spacious suites and staterooms (more than 70% with private balconies), an onboard watersports marina, a choice of three open-seating dining venues, and an extensive spa are among her luxurious attributes. The atmosphere aboard our recently renovated ship radiates warmth, informality, and Polynesian flair. And our beloved troupe of Gauguines—local Tahitians who serve as cruise staff, entertainers, and storytellers—add the unique personality of Tahiti to every sailing.

Launched in 1998, The Gauguin is the longest continually operating year-round luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific. No other luxury ship in history has offered this level of single-destination focus and expertise on a year-round basis for such an extended period of time.
