M/S Paul Gauguin Cruises - Marquesas, Tuamotus and Society Islands - 14 nights

Islands of mystery, the remote Marquesas are a part of French Polynesia - yet a world apart. Their very isolation has infused these islands with a unique culture and language, while their unspoilt landscapes touch the spirit of wilderness within.A map of the Marquesas, Tuamotus and Society Islands Cruise

In this untamed archipelago, you'll call on Fatu Hiva, where locals create beautiful tapa - beaten cloth bark decorated in ink with traditional Polynesian artwork. Perhaps you'll pay homage to your ship's namesake at his final resting place in Hiva Oa. In the quaint village of Hapatoni, on the craggy island of Tahuata, discover a wealth of traditional crafts and a seafront road paved with ancient stones. And call on Nuku Hiva, where Herman Melville, author of Moby Dick, once was held captive.

A call on Fakarava in the Tuamotus sets the stage for your visit to the Marquesas. Here, a remote location and pristine environment offer sanctuary for many rare birds, plants, and crustaceans. You can also find pink-sand beaches, a black-pearl farm, and a church made of coral.

And your two-week idyll draws to a close in the Society Islands, where you'll enjoy stops at Huahine, "The Garden Island" . . . Bora Bora, described by author James A. Michener as "the most beautiful island in the world" . . . ms Paul Gauguin's private island paradise, Motu Mahana . . . and Moorea, said to be the inspiration for Bali Hai. It's an itinerary designed to refresh your soul and reward your own wild spirit with memories to last a lifetime.
