A World Affairs Cruise in the Baltic


Ponant's World Affairs programs provides expert insight into contemporary issues that affect our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren. These voyages are accompanied by men and women—journalists, ambassadors and generals—who have shaped the modern world through their words and deeds. As we travel into the past and engage with its legacy, we will also attend to the present, engaging with our guest experts on the current state of international relations and on the prospects for the future.

For this Baltic program in August 2020, Ponant has assembled a team of lecturers deeply involved in the contemporary world as commentators and critics and as actors on the main stage.
Admiral James Stavridis, former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO and now a global security analyst for NBC News
Ambassador William Burns, former Ambassador to Russia (2005 – 2008) and current President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
Robin Wright, staff writer for the New Yorker and author of more than half a dozen award winning books on international security matters
