Ponant Unique travel experiences

A cosy, friendly atmosphere, 5-star services, a deep-rooted maritime tradition, carefully planned routes, exclusive ports of call.

About Ponant

Unlike the giant ships of other cruise companies, our ships offer a more welcoming feel and a unique atmosphere. It also enables our ships to access original and quieter ports of call, guaranteeing exclusive cruises and attentive and personalised service for all our guests. From Antarctic ice to Pacific lagoons, Mediterranean coves to Asian shores, Ponant has sailed through every sea on the planet for nearly thirty years.

Our experts have put all their efforts into creating routes which enable you to access the Earth's treasures by sea. Every year, we organise more than 200 cruises, visiting more than 100 countries and nearly 400 ports on 100 different routes.

The Ponant Fleet

Ponant's ships have been purposefully designed to welcome a limited number of guests: with 32 to 132 staterooms, our 9 ships offer comfort comparable to the very finest luxury hotels.
