Help and assistance from start to finish
From the booking of your cruise to your embarkation,
we will accompany you every step of the way.
As well as being the leader in the expedition cruise market, PONANT has
the newest fleet. Whether brand new like our extreme polar exploration
ship Le Commandant Charcot, or vintage, like the company’s iconic
yacht Le Ponant (which has taken to sea again in 2022 after a complete
refurbishment), they have all benefited from a recent renovation and
refitting. New technologies and equipment are used to provide comfort
on board and even offer unprecedented sensory immersion.
Our ships, which have been designed by the French interior architect
and designer Jean-Philippe Nuel, are carrying on the heritage of a
certain ‘French chic’. The understated luxury, the fine materials used, the
soft colors, the harmonious forms, that certain je ne sais quoi: all these
elements combine to revitalize your energy and inspire contemplation.
From your cabin, which opens out onto views of the horizon, you get to
enjoy the benefits of personalized service, making life easier for you on
board and leaving you free to concentrate on the essentials: discovering
and exploring new cultures and landscapes.
Healthy, gourmet, elegant, responsible. PONANT
puts gastronomy in the spotlight all day long,
whatever the destination. Savor the pleasures
of top-of-the-line cuisine prepared by talented chefs.
On board, we offer you two different catering concepts. In the gourmet
restaurant, à la carte meals are served at the table. During lunch, a selection of
contemporary French brasserie-inspired dishes is served. At dinner, make way
for the great tradition of French gastronomy.
At the grill restaurant, a buffet creates a more relaxed atmosphere.
“Being a chef on the water is unique. We head to Australia, and next month we are
in Japan. Of course, the meals are different and the chef must carefully select
local products to highlight them to the guests."
—Philippe Tremel, PONANT Corporate Chef
