Ia Orana!

We hope you and your family are safe and in good health during these unprecedented times. The safety and security of our guests and crew members has always been our top priority.

The current global pandemic situation has led us to temporarily suspend the operation of voyages through the end of July 2020 aboard the m/s Paul Gauguin. We are in the process of personally notifying travel advisors and guests with affected sailings.

We look forward to resuming our voyages in the future and continuing to offer our guests exceptional cruise experiences in Tahiti, French Polynesia, Fiji and the South Pacific.

Māuruuru roa,
