la Orana! Welcome to Paul Gauguin Cruises. We thank you for choosing to sail with us. Below, you will find important updates concerning various policies and guidelines. In the Health Protocols section, you will find information about our robust set of measures to address COVID-19 that are continually updated as new health recommendations are issued. If you have any questions, please call 1 (800) 848-6172.
The departure time for the m/s Paul Gauguin from Papeete, Tahiti is now scheduled for 6:30 p.m. local time for the remainder of 2023 voyages. We are making this change to enhance the beginning of the cruise by providing a picturesque sail away from Papeete while our guests are entertained by the ship’s local troupe of entertainers -- Les Gauguins and Les Gauguines -- on the pool deck. As noted on cruise documents, embarkation is scheduled from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. All guests must attend a mandatory muster drill before the ship sails in compliance with the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulations. The website voyage pages will be updated shortly.
