PONANT invites you to discover or rediscover iconic destinations aboard its ships all sailing under the French flag on Le Ponant. This ship is an elegant 3-masted sailboat of 32 cabins for a cruise with an intimate and friendly atmosphere. L’Austral, Le Boréal, Le Soléal and Le Lyrial, are four luxurious ships of 132 cabins maximum, with sophisticated & refined exterior and interior lines, and their PONANT EXPLORERS, include six exceptional yachts specially designed for expedition.
Accommodating a maximum of 264 passengers, their ships let you maintain your privacy; you feel as if you are sailing on your own private yacht. A yacht serving the legendary ports of call and secret harbours that are only accessible to small ships.
On their cruise ships, it is only natural that a certain French flair resonates through the design, cuisine, wines, and discreet crew service. Passengers of all nationalities truly enjoy the relaxed, cultured atmosphere.
From five-star Culture and Relaxation cruises to Expedition cruises, PONANT creates exclusive itineraries that take you to new horizons. Their ships offer you the opportunity to explore every continent: a nature break in Northern Europe, a journey of discovery in South America, an idyllic cruise in the Caribbean or an amazing adventure among the Antarctic ice flows.
