Overview of Ponant

    Embark on a luxury cruise aboard one of the Ponant ships for an exclusive and different experience of sea travel. Combining exceptional itineraries and 5-star hotel services, the French-style cruises are designed to offer you excellence.

    French crew, expertise, attentive service, gastronomy: set sail in a five-star environment and enjoy a travel experience that is simultaneously authentic and sophisticated.

    For over 25 years, Ponant's luxurious ships have been calling in mythical ports and little-known anchorages only accessible to smaller ships. As the leading provider of high-end expedition cruises, they also offer sunny short breaks in the heart of the Mediterranean, cruises along the Celtic shores, and stunning trips to the faraway islands of the Pacific.

    The spacious, comfortable outdoor areas of Ponant ships offer superb ocean panoramas. A heated seawater pool and solarium are located on the uppermost deck of sisterships (Le Boréal, L’Austral, Le Soléal and Le Lyrial) and on the deck 3 of PONANT EXPLORERS. Le Ponant has a 400 m² Sun Deck.

    All Ponant ships (except Le Ponant due to its smaller size) have an on-board spa. Equipped with massage rooms, a hammam, hair salon and fitness room with panoramic ocean views, this well-being center offers a large range of top-end treatments from the French beauty house SOTHYS Paris ™.

    An essential element of French culture, gastronomy is naturally a priority aboard PONANT ships. Fresh products, carefully selected ingredients, refined dishes: throughout your cruise, you will appreciate outstanding cuisine prepared by talented chefs sharing their passion for French culinary heritage.

    In a setting worthy of the finest restaurants, you will discover subtle and audacious flavors, interspersed with inspirations drawn from the local ports of call.

    The theater is an entertainment room in which guests socialize regularly. During the day, guests can attend presentations by naturalists, lecturers, and expert guests. In the evening, the theater hosts various shows, musical performances and film screenings.

    Different lounges enable guests to socialize and share convivial moments during their cruise. The four sisterships feature: the main lounge, an ideal place to meet over a drink and watch daytime or evening events; the panoramic lounge, an intimate piano bar with a unique view of the horizon; and the outdoor bar, a relaxation area with access to the pool and solarium.
