Rated the world's best small ship cruise line in 2018, the ms Paul Gauguin is a winner all around. At a little under 20,000 tons, the ms Paul Gauguin carries just over 300 passengers in truly gracious style. Having undergone a multi-million dollar refit and upgrade a few years ago, she is truly a five star deluxe product. But what sets her apart from most other ships is her staff. From the moment of embarkation you will feel that you belong, thanks to the warm greeting by everyone from deck hands to the Captain.
