  1. Question about the excursion: if I understand correctly, excursion will only be available thru Celebrity at this point. You are not allowed to go ashore on your own. Is Celebrty going to move the excursion price up so people will not have choice but to upgrade?
  2. If you book because you are able to find covid insurance: Saw yesterday that Hawaii require that anyone tested positive on the island will have to quaranteen "with" anyone travelling with that person. I haven't seen such requirement from FP but it makes sense. Does your insurance cover the extra cost of quaranteen (14 days at a hotel) for the other people in your group?

  6. Same here. We've got tons of nice places in our neck of the wood.
  7. I don'y know much about maritime laws but as a private pilot, there are some procedure you need to do to keep your licence "active". Maybe the same thing applies to cruise ship crew/captain where they need to navigate a certain # of days/hours per month.
  8. Cruising when the country is having discussion about curfew? https://www.tahiti-infos.com/Le-couvre-feu-fait-debat_a195292.html
  9. Hawaii is having similar problem at the moment!!! The average age of people in hospital in Tahiti is 52. Average age of positive case is 36. We are thinking of going back to Tahiti but not this year or the next. Also in the news from British-Colombia. Cases are being found on ATN flight. Air travel The B.C. Centre for Disease Control has identified three flights (two international and one domestic) with COVID-19. Air travel The B.C.

  10. It just arrived. I saw photo on a Facebook page. It needs a cleanup as the Pacific is hard on the paint LOL Ask the owner of the page to be a member: Rare Tahitian Air/Port Views
  11. Tahiti, August 25, 2020 - The health department announced on Tuesday that the toll now stands at 335 Covid cases in French Polynesia, 25 more than the day before. Detailed figures will be updated on Wednesday, but the last report on Monday reported 119 people released from isolation and considered to be cured, 7 people hospitalized at the CHPF for signs of Covid-19, including 3 in intensive care. The cases being located in the urban communes of Tahiti. And three related cases being isolated in Raiatea. https://www.tahiti-infos.com/La-Polynesie-passe-a-335-cas-Covid_a193783.html
  12. You're in for a pleasant surprise. We always resisted travelling on a cruise ship for different reason (environment, children, etc). But in 2015 we made the choice on travelling on a small ship (Wind Surf) to celebrate our 25th. We had nothing to compare so it was all new to us. We loved every moment. We did Celebrity also which is very different (but enjoyable nonetheless). Wind Spirit (and Wind Song) were made for French Polynesia. That's what the builder had in mind when he designed the fleet. Get your hand on the book: Wind Star: The Building of a Sailship, published in 1987
  13. You can trust Viator. But I try to avoid them. While the price might be the same (same tour, same outfit), Viator keeps between 15% and 30% of the fee. That is why a Tour Company I know in Moorea refuse to used them to bring tourist.
  14. Just listened to the Press conference. Le Président n'est pas content du tout ! 71 cases of Covid-19 to date "I am deeply dismayed and scandalized by this reality" declares Edouard Fritch, the President of the Country, who denounces "the irresponsibility of certain people", "tourists follow the protocols with care, even the tourist of Paul Gauguin". "The personal pleasures of a few will undermine the back to school part of the economy, the cohesion and the good living together of our society. The binge, the party, the alcohol ... have favored the spread of the virus by our resi
