Les Gauguines & Les Gauguins
On every voyage of The Gauguin, the troupe of Tahitian host/entertainers brings the spirit of Polynesia to life for the 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 a private motu. And learn local handicrafts such as pareo tying during hands-on demonstrations.
Le Grand Salon
Evenings aboard The Gauguin feature spectacular performances in the ship's main lounge. Every voyage features an electrifying Polynesian show by the 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. The 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 the special guests.
In this versatile lounge, you can enjoy a morning snack or afternoon tea, attend a honeymoon/anniversary blessing ceremony, or enjoy a nightcap and dance under the stars to the strains of live music.
Casino and Piano Bar
Every evening (except when prohibited by port regulations), you can try your luck in Le Casino, featuring slot machines, blackjack, and stud poker. Or relax with a drink at the Piano Bar, enjoying live entertainment..
