PONANT Yacht Cruises and Expeditions

For over 25 years PONANT has been taking travelers on awe-inspiring expedition voyages and cultural cruises to some of the Earth’s most fascinating places. Thier young fleet of small luxury vessels explores seven continents. And aboard a small ship, you have access like never before – whether you are navigating remote islands in the Philippines, making new friends in Papua New Guinea, watching for whales with the Captain from the bridge in the acrcit, or enjoying views of Hạ Long Bay from your balcony. You’ll travel with a small group of like-minded travelers, in the comfort and elegance for which Ponant is known.

The world’s only French-flagged cruise line and top cruise line worldwide in polar expeditions, PONANT Yacht Cruises & Expeditions currently has five distinctive and intimate vessels, embodying the essence of a private luxury yacht: the three-masted LE PONANT, an elegant sailing yacht accommodating 64 guests and three luxury yachts of 264-guests LE BORÉAL, L’AUSTRAL and LE SOLÉAL. These luxurious ships sail to the unexplored corners of the world including the Poles, Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Central America, South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand on cruises ranging from three to 21 nights and including many ports and islands not accessible to large cruise ships.

From Five Star Expeditions to themed cruises, the engaging itineraries offer a wealth of fascinating shore excursion programs to ensure that every voyage is a unique and exceptional experience. The latest eco-friendly technologies, attentive service, bilingual crew, luxurious staterooms and suites, an elegant, sophisticated cuisine and a chic, yet informal atmosphere offer a cruise experience unlike any other.

In addition to the best available tours, their 1:2 staff to guest ratio also guarantees the best in personalized service. Explore your destinations at an unhurried pace and let the beauty that surrounds you, stir your senses. No matter where you wish to travel, a cruise with PONANT will take you off the beaten path to a whole new world of adventure!
