On every voyage of The Gauguin, our own troupe of Tahitian host/entertainers brings the spirit of Polynesia to life for our guests. Enjoy a performance in Le Grand Salon, in which these talented performers retell ancestral legends through dance. Attend a Polynesian blessing ceremony for couples celebrating a honeymoon or anniversary. Delight in traditional songs crooned in La Palette lounge aboard or at our private motu. And learn local handicrafts such as pareo tying during hands-on demonstrations.
Evenings aboard The Gauguin feature spectacular performances in the ship's main lounge. Every voyage features an electrifying Polynesian show by our beloved troupe of entertainers, Les Gauguines and Les Gauguins. Another show might feature a guest Polynesian troupe offering a thrilling performance of ote'a—a complex line dance accompanied by drums telling the ancestral legends of the Polynesian people. On other nights, you might marvel at the skill of a pianist … tap your foot to a rock band … or hum along to familiar tunes performed by a veteran of Broadway. Our selection of entertainment is sure to make every evening a pleasure!
You'll also find activities and entertainment throughout the day in Le Grand Salon. Enliven your senses with a morning game of table tennis. And in the afternoon, you might take in an engaging presentation by one of our special guests.
