Gracing the seas in one-of-a-kind unique, boutique liners, Ponant delivers sophisticated yet cosy luxury cruising like no other. Delivering all the grace, refinement and gourmet dining one might expect from a French cruise line, paired with world-class expeditions, and an intimate, human experience.
Members of the all-French crew on board – including, perhaps most importantly, a full-time pastry chef – are helpful and approachable without exception, and experienced tour directors demonstrate why Ponant remains the world leader in luxury expedition.
Art-deco visions in blue and white await inside, with elegant dining and lounging areas and delightful sun decks from which to enjoy the tropical sun on days at sea.
Of particular note, the small-size sailing vessel Le Ponant has the added benefit of accessing some of the world’s more remote ports that cruise liners are unable to navigate. As primarily a sailing yacht, on calmer days it is possible to experience the spine-tingling sensation of travelling by sails alone, lulling across the water in near silence.
