Paul Gauguin Cruises Embarkation Changes and Sailing Date Change Policy

Updated July 17, 2020 - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued an extended “no-sail” order for cruise ships operating out of U.S. ports that will remain in effect through July 24, 2020. This supersedes previous suspension of operations notices.

French Polynesia is officially re-opening to international tourism on July 15, 2020, and more information on their travel policy can be found here. Paul Gauguin Cruises will offer voyages in Tahiti and the Society Islands to the local French Polynesia market starting in mid-July 2020. Paul Gauguin Cruises will welcome both local and international guests on the 10-night Society Islands & Tuamotus voyage departing July 29, 2020, from Papeete, Tahiti. In August 2020 and beyond, Paul Gauguin Cruises resumes its 7- to 14-night Tahiti, French Polynesia, and South Pacific sailing schedule.
