PONANT has created a new style of cruising.
Created in 1988 by officers of the French Merchant Navy, PONANT has created a new style of cruising, under the French flag, through a unique conception of sea travel and a commitment to promoting responsible tourism.
Accessing exceptional territories aboard yachts with up to 132 staterooms featuring refined design, on which the art of living and excellent cuisine take pride of place: such is the promise of a unique and authentic PONANT voyage.
Its fleet of 12 vessels is one of the most modern and recent in the world, fully CLEANSHIP certified by Bureau Veritas, attesting to a reduced environmental impact.
PONANT surrounds itself with prestigious partners (Ducasse Conseil, Relais & Châteaux, National Geographic, etc.) and the best naturalists and experts who share their expertise and passion during encounters and lectures.
