Rates include:

Cruise transportation and shipboard accommodations, meals and excursions. Fares are based on per adult double occupancy. All published fares are quoted in Australian Dollars (AUD). These fares are correct at the time of printing and are subject to change; with or without notice:

Rates do not include:

Shipboard purchases, liquor, gratuities, port taxes other than those specifically provided for, and other personal items. Rates quoted at the time of printing are based on current costs and are subject to change up to and including the date of sailing.

Schedule and extra cost provision:

If, due to weather or other uncontrollable reasons, you are required to spend one or more additional nights, you will be responsible for your own hotel and meal costs. In addition, because the primary function of vessels in the service of Compagnie Polynesienne de Transport Maritime is to carry freight, the departure dates, ports of call, and duration of cruises may be subject to variation both prior to departure and en route. Freighter passengers should have a flexible time schedule and anticipate the foregoing possibilities. While we do everything possible to inform and assist our clients, neither CPTM nor its agents will assume additional expenses, hotel or meal costs associated with delays or changes in itinerary and schedules.

Itinerary Changes:

CPTM pledges to make every effort to operate all cruises as advertised. CPTM reserves the right to alter or curtail the itinerary, or substitute sightseeing, ports of call or conveyances as deemed necessary.

Transfers:

All cruise arrangements originate and terminate from the specified pier or departure point. Transportation is not provided between airport locations and the vessel, or vice versa, unless specified.

Baggage:

Stateroom luggage will be accepted on the day of sailing at boarding time only. All personal luggage is to be stored in passenger’s cabin as we are unable to store it in other areas aboard the ship. Passengers should clearly label all luggage with their name, vessel, cabin number or deck assignment number and date of sailing. Valuables should be hand carried onboard. We recommend that travelers take out a baggage damage or loss policy through their insurance agent or travel agent.

Travel documents and entry requirements:

All passengers must have valid passports for entry into French Polynesia. Those visitors who are not citizens of the United States or Canada or from the European Economic Community and those planning to stay in French Polynesia more than one month should contact their travel agent for visa requirements. All visitors must have a round trip airline ticket.

Inoculations:

At time of printing, vaccinations were not required. Passengers should consult their travel agent for latest requirements.

Refunds:

Requests for refunds should be directed to the agency which sold you the cruise. No refunds will be made on unused features, such as meals, voluntarily omitted by the passenger.
