Join the club! Ponant signs up for CLIA

The French yacht-style cruise line Ponant has become the 28th global member of the Cruise Lines International Association, the official cruise trade organisation.

Last month, CroisiEurope, Europe’s largest river cruise line, also joined as a CLIA Global Cruise Line member.

Ponant and CroisiEurope are both a part of the CLIA Specialty Cruise Collection, a group of 17 cruise lines representing the rapidly growing small ship, river, coastal, luxury, adventure and sailing ship member lines.

“It is evident that the cruise industry is continuing to flourish and we are thrilled to see prestigious cruise lines around the world, such as Ponant, recognise the benefits of joining CLIA as a global member,” said Adam Goldstein, CLIA Global Chairman and President/COO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.

“Global Cruise Line members take advantage of access to thousands of CLIA travel agent and agency members as well as tap into vast marketing and promotional activities across CLIA’s 15 global offices.”

Jean-Emmanuel Sauvée, Ponant’s founder and CEO, said:“As the only French cruise line that specialises in luxury cruises and a world leader in polar expeditions, we are thrilled to move our CLIA membership to a global level and join its Specialty Cruise Collection.”

“With the development of our sales offices in the USA or Australasia, we look forward to engage fully with CLIA’s office and CLIA travel agent and agency members around the world over the coming years.”
