Discover the first images of this new generation of cruise ships, designed specifically for expedition voyages. PONANT ships, built to a scale that works on a human level, are designed to carry a limited number of guests to locations where others don't go, offering you unique and unparalleled cruise experiences. From your luxury stateroom or suite with sea views, you'll enjoy a wide variety of superb services, including sophisticated fine dining, prepared on board with care and talent by our top French chefs. Experience unforgettable moments with a uniquely refined and comfortable atmosphere in the spirit of a private yacht. Relax in our new underwater lounges, our infinity pools, or the on-board marina as the mood takes you. Discover our unique destinations in the remotest regions or visit the tropics, where superb lagoons, edged with coral and filled with clear blue water await you. With a particular commitment to respect and protect the environment, PONANT does all it can to minimise the impact on the fragile dynamics of the ecosystems it encounters. All our ships are certified by the international "Clean Ship" label, bearing witness to their minimised environmental impact.
Since its founding by Jean-Emmanuel Sauvée over a quarter of a century ago, PONANT has been France's only cruise company. With French crews, and the expertise, personal service, and cuisine that they bring with them, we offer luxury cruises to help you discover truly exceptional destinations.
Whether you are embarking on a nature voyage in northern Europe, a cultural voyage to South America, an idyllic Caribbean cruise or a sophisticated expedition through the icy waters of the Antarctic, PONANT crosses the world's oceans in search of exclusive itineraries that are rich in fresh discoveries and encounters.
Do you dream of experiencing a voyage on the sea that combines authenticity with sophistication? We will welcome you on board our luxurious yachts to offer an unforgettable cruise in an atmosphere of relaxed sophistication on a human scale.
