Experience the elegant side of cruising with Ponant. Onboard each of Ponant's twelve ships, guests are free to go at their own pace, savoring the joys of solitude or sharing enjoyable moments with others during the many onboard activities. Ponant's mission is to offer legendary destinations and the world's most secluded ports, while delivering outstanding service, gourmet cuisine and overall wellness.

The Ponant fleet features one intimate sailing yacht, four expedition ships, six explorer vessels and a luxury icebreaker designed for polar treks.

The small size and technical capabilities of each ship allow guests to visit off-the-beaten-track destinations and experience new cultures and close encounters with the wonders of nature. Stylish staterooms and suites create an intimate environment on board, and the imaginative décor features superior materials and soothing harmonious tones. Guests will experience the French lifestyle - a subtle blend of casual, relaxed elegance and friendly hospitality - and can indulge in inspired, sophisticated and varied cuisine based on carefully-selected produce, impeccable service and talented chefs.

To sail with Ponant is to experience the gracious art of living and enjoy life "á la française."
