South Pacific specialist Paul Gauguin Cruises recently completed the overhaul of its 332-passenger luxury ship, the Gauguin, in dry dock in Singapore.
The Gauguin’s staterooms, suites and public areas, including the Grand Salon, three restaurants, piano bar, La Palette lounge, spa and salon, boutique, pool deck and reception have been renovated.

The vision of the reconstruction was to showcase Gauguin’s elegant Polynesian signature in a fresh and chic style.
Reducing environmental impact is one of the company’s priorities. In 2019, Paul Gauguin Cruises stopped using heavy fuel oil and uses a cleaner fuel (low sulfur marine diesel). Paul Gauguin Cruises has also committed to offsetting 150% of its carbon dioxide emissions. Recent environmental improvements at Gauguin include water purification and optimization of water consumption, as well as energy conservation initiatives.
The new decor of the Gauguin was designed by the Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel to evoke the elegance of the South Sea and its islands. The renovation enhances the historic interior of warm, dark wood. The fresh palette includes a wide range of greens and natural tones, warm tones, organic patterns and woven textiles.
Parallel to the Gauguin’s renovation, the facilities have also been improved. Guests benefit from free unlimited Wi-Fi and a virtual museum with more than 150 paintings by the artist Paul Gauguin. These new enhancements offer an even more comprehensive concept, including dining in the ship’s three restaurants and 24-hour room service, complimentary beverages including select wines, beers and spirits, and onboard perks for room stewards and catering staff.
