Ponant Cruises are a French cruise line who offer luxury cruises to classic destinations such as Northern Europe, the Mediterranean and Caribbean, as well as exotic and off-the-path places including Africa, Asia, Antarctica and Latin America.

Formed in 1988 by French Merchant Naval officer, Jean-Emmanuel Sauvee, Ponant has since grown and expanded from the original three-masted yacht Le Ponant to its four incredible sisterships - one of which, Le Boreal, received European Cruiser Association's Best Newcomer of the Year - Gold medal in 2010.

Throughout its 25 years of providing luxury French-style cruises, they've amassed a number of awards and accolades including "Best Cruise Company" from Victoires du Tourisme for the second year,  the "National Geographic Traveler 50 Tours of a Lifetime" for the North West Passage 2014 cruise and many more.

Concepts of the 'French Touch' and the 'French art of Living' sit strongly at the core of everything that Ponant does, whether its the excellent gastronomy that France is known for, the friendly French crew and hospitality or other touches such as interior design by Jean Philippe Nuel and beauty kits by L'Occitane.

One of Ponant's key principals is to explore beyond what cruises normally do, visiting the smaller and more fragile destinations. Ponant are very passionate about protecting these environments, which is why their sisterships are installed with electric propulsion systems, diesel engines using Marine diesel oil, and proper waste and sewage treatment facilities onboard, among other measures.

What's included:

Stand out Ponant Cruises features:
• All onboard meals including Captain's welcome cocktail and gala dinner
• Complimentary beverages served throughout the ship – wines, house champagne, alcohol except premium brands
• In-room bar stocked with your preferred beverage selections
• Watersports activities except scuba diving, when permitted by authorities and ship master
• Experienced bilingual Expedition team on Expedition cruises
• Complimentary 24 hr room service
• Complimentary polar parka and boot rental on select cruises


Making up Ponant's fleet are 7 stunning yachts: the three-masted traditional yacht, Le Ponant; the innovative and intimate Le Champlain and Le Laperouse ships; and Ponant's main four 'sisterships', Le Boreal, L'Austral, Le Lyrial and Le Soleal. While still retaining the French spirit, each ship carries its own style that caters to different types of travellers.

The Le Ponant is their original yacht which, as a traditional yacht, features a much smaller and more intimate atmosphere. Onboard, you'll find just 32 staterooms, two lounges, two restaurants and the marina for swimming and watersports, all of which lead to a wonderful private yacht experience.

Their four 'sisterships' currently form the backbone of the Ponant experience. These ships are the largest out of their fleet, being 466 feet long and carrying 264 passengers in 128 staterooms and 4 suites. Each once comes equipped with a fantastic wellness area (including fitness room, massage parlor and hammam), two restaurants (Gastronomy Restaurant and Grill restaurant) and a choice of three bars.

Joining in 2018, the Le Champlain and Le Laperouse are the first two of four Ponant Explorer ships and will debut in the Mediterranean and Iceland respectively. Providing a slightly smaller and more modern luxurious experience, guests can enjoy their spacious 92 staterooms and suites, a singular restaurant, a lounge, outside deck with pool, spa & fitness and more.

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
