We suggest that you spend at least one additional night in Tahiti before the cruise begins, to allow for any unforeseen flight delays.

A post-cruise package will be provided for those booking their flights with Paul Gauguin Cruises, including transfers and a dayroom. For other passengers, taxis from the ship to the airport (or hotel if extending your stay) are available at your expense. The dayroom package including transfers is also available for purchase for those booking their own flights.

As the ship will arrive in Tahiti at about 7:30 pm on July 9, and passengers will overnight on board before disembarking on July 10, it may be possible to disembark the evening of July 9 to connect with late-night flights home. Please be sure to consult with us before booking such a flight to ensure that you have sufficient time to disembark, transfer to the airport, and check in for your international flight. We highly recommend that you stay on board the night of July 9 and disembark as scheduled on July 10, to fly home later that day or extend your stay in French Polynesia.
