Ponant Yacht Cruises & Expeditions

PONANT Yacht Cruises & Expeditions represents the dawn of a new era in small-ship experiential and enrichment travel, combining specially crafted itineraries and themed voyages with a fleet of purpose-built, small luxury cruise ships. PONANT offers a wide range of voyages to every corner of the globe and recently introduced the Quintessential Collection designed to engage with the world in order to better understand it. Under this collection each cruise is based on a theme and features engaging talks and performances by world renowned experts or musicians aboard ship and exceptional activities ashore, relevant to the theme of the cruise, to enrich the guest’s appreciation of the destination. PONANT is the leader in luxury expedition cruises with 50% market share and is the world’s number 1 cruise company sailing the Polar regions. Six new PONANT EXPLORER ships will be premiering in 2018-2020 featuring the Blue Eye - the world’s first multi-sensory underwater ship lounge – as well as the first electric hybrid icebreaker launching in 2021 to continue the tradition of offering unique and inspiring experiences.
