The only French cruise line and world leader in Polar cruising, PONANT perpetuates the great French maritime tradition; one that offers exceptional destinations on small capacity ships embodying a lifestyle “à la française”: a travel concept that combines intimacy and curiosity, luxury and authenticity. SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL!
From the beginning, PONANT made a bold gamble to focus on small capacity ships as a way of combining a passion for sailing with five-star yachts. Aboard PONANT ships, the newest and most modern in the cruise sector, refinement and comfort take inspiration from nautical references: somewhere between chic and casual relaxation. Their sophisticated design and intimate size give passengers the feeling they are on a private yacht.
EXCLUSIVE ITINERARIES PONANT’s yachts are small enough to reach ports that are inaccessible to the bigger ships. Be it an expedition to the Arctic, a relaxing cruise in the Caribbean or a voyage of discovery to South America, PONANT’s carefully thought out itineraries meet everyone’s desires. THE “FRENCH TOUCH”
The only cruise company flying the French flag, PONANT brings the “French Touch” to travelling the world’s oceans, a way of life embodied by French crews, and where discreet service and gourmet cuisine take pride of place. The “French Touch” is also this subtle blend of relaxed elegance and conviviality, a refined and welcoming service on board, the “je-ne-sais quoi” acclaimed by passengers – whatever their nationality.
