Ponant

Up-market cruising all over the world

Ponant is well known for the originality of its itineraries and destinations, its tailor-made/themed cruises, the quality of its services and elegant à la Française way of life on board, reasonably sized ships and its commitment to respecting the environment.

Founded in 1988, Ponant, also formerly known as Compagnie du Ponant, Compagnie des Iles du Ponant and Ponant Cruises, is the only French-registered cruise company with a fleet of five exceptional ships: Le Ponant, Le Boreal L’Austral, Le Soleal, and the newest addition to the fleet, Le Lyrial, which arrived in 2015.

Whether you choose one of the 32 cabins on the three-mast sailing vessel Le Ponant, or the 132 luxurious staterooms on sisters Le Boreal, L’Austral, Le Soleal and Le Lyrial, you can be sure of an outstanding experience in a setting specially designed for your wellbeing and privacy.

On board everyone sets their own daily pace, free to enjoy the delights of a “select solitude” or to share convivial moments over the many activities on the programme.

Each of the luxurious yachts offers spacious suites, impeccable service and excellent food and wine – plus their small size allows them to reach destinations that larger ships cannot, and offer its passengers to sail in the company of experts and historians as guides and lecturers who are passionate about their subjects.

The small-capacity yachts offer chic cruising without the crowds, being small enough to reach ports that are inaccessible to bigger ships with destinations to Antarctica, Alaska & the Arctic, the Caribbean, Central & South America, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe & the Baltic, West Africa, Asia and the Pacific.

The latest eco-friendly technologies, attentive five-star service, bilingual crew, luxurious staterooms and suites, a gourmet cuisine and meticulously planned excursions designed to create emotionally moving experiences.

In 2018 and 2019, Ponant will welcome four brand new yachts with the launch of its brand new and innovative Explorers-class ships Le Lapérouse, Le Champlain, Le Bougainville and Le Dumont d’Urville.

Named after famous French explorers, the ships each boast 88 cabins and four suites, all with a balcony. They will also feature the Blue Eye, the world’s first multi-sensory underwater lounge.
