Cruises with the French touch

Set sail in a five-star environment and enjoy a travel experience that is simultaneously authentic and sophisticated.

For more than 25 years, PONANT has been been offering marvellous ways of getting away from it all. Sailing on board one of our ships means enjoying exceptional experiences as close as possible to nature, in the heart of virgin territory and in sites that combine dreams and history. It means discovering other cultures and traditions, and sharing memorable moments with tribes from the other side of the world. 

On our cruise ships, it is only natural that a certain French art of living resonates through the main language spoken, the accessible crew, the French design, cuisine and wines, and the discreet service. Passengers of all nationalities truly enjoy the relaxed, cultured atmosphere.
