Tere Moana: Stylish, intimate explorations around the globe

Have you sailed on Tere Moana? We'd love to hear your take and see your photos. The following information was curated by Cruiseable.

Snapshot

Tere Moana is the newer of the two Paul Gauguin Cruises ships. The Moana carries the cruise line’s spirit of Polynesian welcome, geniality, and hospitality into the wider world. Literally “Ocean Traveler” in Tahitian, the Moana specializes in warm-weather destinations, going where larger ships cannot and exploring hidden ports throughout the Caribbean, Latin America, and Europe. Best of all, the price is all-inclusive.

Accommodating just 88 guests, the newly renovated Moana reflects the high standard of quality set by the line’s flagship, the Paul Gauguin. Spacious staterooms, two restaurants, L’Etoile and La Veranda, and a spa are among its deluxe attributes. You almost will feel like you have your own yacht to explore Europe in the summer, or either the Caribbean or Central America in the winter.

Where Tere Moana sails

Destinations: In the winter, the Moana sails mostly from Panama to Costa Rica, around the islands off Costa Rica, to St. Maarten/St. Martin and the eastern Caribbean. In the summer, it adds the following European cities to its itinerary as it crosses the Atlantic: Lisbon, Portugal; Venice, Italy; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Piran, Slovenia; Gibraltar; Barcelona, Spain; Nice, France; Istanbul, Turkey, and Athens, Greece.
