QUINTESSENTIAL MUSIC THEME

A combination of extraordinary sightseeing with private recitals by classical musicians: that is what we offer on our Ponant Quintessential Music Theme voyages. A signature of these voyages is that the artists do not simply perform and then retreat to their staterooms; they participate fully in excursions and in life aboard ship. Travellers can expect to share their company over drinks or dinner and in informal conversation. The intimacy of concerts aboard ship and ashore—designed especially for this voyage—and the quality of the performing artists provide a truly unparalleled experience.
