Paul Gauguin Cruises is a cruise line owned by Beachcomber Croisieres Limited with headquarters in Bellevue, Washington. Paul Gauguin Cruises operates the luxury cruise ship, the Paul Gauguin, to Tahiti, French Polynesia and the South Pacific.[1]


The company and ship had been sailing under the name Regent Seven Seas Cruises from 1998-2010 until Paul Gauguin Cruises took over the ship and its operations in January 2010. The parent company, Beachcomber Croisieres Limited, had previously acquired the line in 2009.[2] On September 30, 2011 the line announced the acquisition of a second ship. The ship was christened as the m/v Tere Moana in December 2012. The company announced the sale of the Tere Moana in June 2015, leaving the Paul Gauguin as its only ship.[3]


Paul Gauguin currently sails year-round to Tahiti & Society Islands, Cook Islands, French Polynesia, Fiji, Marquesas, Tonga, Tuamotus, Australia & New Zealand. The m/v Tere Moana had its final sailing as a Paul Gauguin Cruise[4] on May 14, 2016.
