The expedition cruise company Lindblad Expeditions announced it plans to base one of its vessels in French Polynesia from January 2021 as it has begun offering voyages for next year.

According to a government statement, the company planned to deploy the ship National Geographic Orion (max passenger capacity 102) and reportedly welcomed the testing regime and health protocol put in place by French Polynesia.

The website of Lindblad Expeditions currently offers cruises from homeport Papeete Tahiti from April 2021.

French Polynesia opened the border to international tourism a couple of months ago and had since then seen a recurrence of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The new outbreak, which has affected 1300+ people since August 2020, is forecast to peak in January 2021.
