BELLEVUE — Paul Gauguin Cruises will resume its Tahiti and French Polynesia small-ship voyages starting in July 2020 with a new “Covid-Safe Protocol.”
In step with French Polynesia’s officially re-opening to international tourism on July 15, 2020, the cruise line is offering seven-night ‘Tahiti & the Society Islands’ voyages departing July 11 and July 18, 2020, for the local French Polynesian market.
Paul Gauguin Cruises will welcome both local and international guests on its 10-night ‘Society Islands & Tuamotus’ voyage departing July 29, 2020, from Papeete, Tahiti.
In addition to sailing the islands of Huahine, Bora Bora, Motu Mahana, and Moorea, this itinerary also features calls at the atolls of Rangiroa and Fakarava in the Tuamotu Archipelago, which are known for their stunning lagoons that teem with marine life.
In August 2020 and beyond, Paul Gauguin Cruises will resume its previously scheduled seven- to 14-night Tahiti, French Polynesia and South Pacific sailings.
To prepare for the resumption of activity, Paul Gauguin Cruises and PONANT are collaborating with the IHU (Institut Hospitalo-Universitaire) Méditerranée Infection of Marseilles, one of the world’s leading centres in the field of infectious diseases, as well as with the Battalion of Marine Firemen of Marseilles.

This protocol is built on the principle of double protection: 100% monitoring of people and goods before boarding, then once onboard, strict health protocols are applied.
In addition to strict cleaning procedures advised by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), implementation of social distancing requirements and enhanced employee training, Paul Gauguin Cruises’ new measures include:
