PONANT offers a new style of sea travel – where exceptional service and comfort are a way of life, respect for the oceans and the world’s spectacular destinations is ingrained, and discovering the world’s greatest treasures is the primary aim. From secluded ports to secret seas, from forgotten beaches to remote lands, our experts choose itineraries that avoid major tourist routes meaning unique cruises and shorelines few have seen before. Utilising intimate, small capacity ships, PONANT can dock in private ports and offer stopovers in preserved locations. On board, the limited number of passengers means guests experience the feeling of being on a private yacht. Refinement, curiosity, authenticity, PONANT’s unique travel philosophy reinterprets cruising to enable guests to discover a new way to travel, by combining cultural enrichment with time to unwind in a luxury setting that only insiders know about. PONANT has won many awards, including a Conde Nast Readers’ Choice award 2022, and very recently a travel industry Best Sustainable Practice of the Year award – a tribute to their philosophy of a more sustainable future by investing towards preserving our oceans and polar regions.
