Discover Ponant

Passengers will enjoy the intimate small yacht environment on the two cruise types offered by Ponant: a ‘5-Star Culture and Relaxation Cruise’ or a ‘5-Star Expedition’. An expedition immerses you in the National Geographic World and its wealth of expertise; access a National Geographic photographer or pick the brain of a local National Geographic Expert.

The Ponant experience

The three-mast Le Ponant honours nautical tradition alongside ‘Sisterships’ Le Boréal, Le Soléal, L’Austral and Le Lyrial. ‘Explorers’, Le Bellot, Le Jacques Cartier, Le Lapérouse, Le Champlain, Le Boungainville and Le Dumont D’Urville visit remote ports and Le Commandant Charcot, a world-first electric hybrid polar explorer, launches in 2021.


From the ice of Antarctica to the lagoons of the Pacific and majestic Asian shores, Ponant’s bespoke itineraries are carefully designed in-house to take you on an unforgettable journey.
