Safety

The safety of guests and crew has always been Ponant's greatest priority. On land as at sea, PONANT applies strict safety rules that are subject to regular international inspections.

Provisions on board

  • Each guest has a lifejacket in their stateroom and near the life rafts.

  • A demonstration of the procedure for abandoning ship, which is compulsory for all, takes place before the departure of each cruise.

  • The ships are equipped, among other things, with automatic fire detection and extinction systems, fire doors and watertight doors.

  • For maximum safety in the polar regions, Ponant's ships have specific lifesaving equipment that can cope with extreme external conditions while waiting for assistance, in the event of problems.

Inspections and classifications

  • The fleet is monitored by the Centre de Sécurité des Navires PACA Corse, located in Marseille.

  • Each ship has ISM (International Safety Management) certification, a very strict international regulation.

  • Safety equipment is checked and approved on a yearly basis by the French authorities and by Bureau Veritas.

  • All ships are graded and are regularly examined in great detail and without prior notice, in ports of call around the world.

  • Ponant's four sister ships (Le Boréal, L’Austral, Le Soléal and Le Lyrial) have a reinforced hull and a structure certified by Bureau Veritas. They have also been awarded “Ice 1C” certification, which authorizes them to sail in polar zones.

  • PONANT is currently the only cruise company sailing under the French flag, recognized as being the safest flag to sail under in the world.

Crew training

  • After passing the entrance test, each officer received thorough training at the French National Maritime College (ENSM) by alternating periods of training with periods of sailing. After successful graduation and proper experience, these officers are recruited for Ponant's? ships, and are responsible for operating the ship and supervising the crew.

  • Training courses on an ice navigation simulator are organized at the ENSM in Marseille. This tool, unique in France, is able to train young officers to run a very specific bridge and to sail in a polar environment.

  • The entire crew (sailing, hospitality and production) undergo extensive training enabling them to exercise the roles entrusted to them in the event of an emergency. Many exercises and simulations are regularly held to ensure that everyone is fully capable of behaving appropriately.

  • For cruises in the polar regions, the crew undergo additional training regarding survival and behavior to adopt in polar waters.

Blue Eye Discovery

In a world exclusive, the six ships of the Ponant Explorers series are equipped with an underwater passenger lounger, called Blue Eye, located within the hull beneath the water line. The design of this technical prowess was entrusted to architect Jacques Rougerie, who is deeply passionate about the sea. Rougerie's mission is to enable Ponant guests to perceive and feel the underwater universe that has never ceased to amaze and inspire him throughout his career.

Protecting the Environment

Protecting the environment
Particularly committed to the preservation of the environment, PONANT minimizes its impact on the planet with ships purpose-built to reduce their footprint and a philosophy of respect and protection of the world. With a resolute desire to be the leader in this field, Ponant pursues a strong ecological policy each and every day that includes:

- Environmental regulatory compliance of operations and anticipation of new regulations that are likely to have an impact on activities,

- Implementation of best practices in recycling and reuse of solid waste and wastewater,

-Certification of ships by the international “Clean Ship” label, which certifies minimal environmental impact,

- Use of green equipment on Ponant’s four sister ships, such as a quiet and economical electric propulsion system, MDO (Marine Diesel Oil) engines, which are lighter and produce less pollution, and a sonar sand-bank detection system,

- The pursuit of energy efficiency and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions,

- Development of techniques, procedures, and partnerships in order to preserve marine biodiversity and the coastal environment and to respect the communities that Ponant visits.

A signatory of the La Charte Bleue d’Armateurs de France, PONANT is also a member of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO), working to safeguard flora and fauna in the most sensitive climates through the adoption of responsible behavior.

A CSR Approach

Since 2014, PONANT has adopted a CSR policy and is committed, through measures and regular checks, to:

- Excelling in health and safety management

- Taking good care of the staff

- Applying best practices in terms of environmental protection to the entirety of its supply chain

Land-based Programs

During your cruise:
A wide choice of excursions is offered during all of Ponant's cruises. Carefully crafted by operations professionals, these outings highlight the best of each city, monument, or natural site visited. Land excursions can be registered for and purchased on board at the beginning of your cruise. 

Before or after your cruise:
Before the departure or upon the conclusion of your cruise, various programs and overnight hotel stays are always available. These can be organized at the passenger's request. 

Zodiac Outings

During expedition voyages, a fleet of Zodiac craft make landing ashore in remote, seldom visited destinations safe and accessible enabling guests to get as close as possible to ice and fauna. They accommodate up to ten passengers and are easy to step on to from the marina platform at the read of the ship. Zodiac excursions are included on expeditions.

Quintessential Collection™

Themed cruises, remarkable cultural enrichment, and exceptional guests.

These special voyages are designed around a specific theme, for travelers who want to engage with the world in order to better understand it. They also offer special perks and programming that are unlike anything before.

They also include a pre- or post- cruise stay with excursions relevant to the theme, lectures, and performances aboard ship by world-class experts, musicians, and one or two exceptional activities ashore that encourage gues to embrace the sights and sounds, tastes and smells of the local culture. 

Open Bar

From the moment you board the ship and throughout your cruise, drinks will be complimentary and unlimited*. Choose from a selection of wines, champagnes, spirits, mineral waters and non-alcoholic drinks.

There will be no receipts to sign and no constraints: the Open Bar will also apply to your minibar and even to room service drinks.
So why not take advantage of this to enjoy a friendly pre-dinner drink on the deck at sunset, or a hot chocolate in the comfort of one of Ponant's lounges?

*It doesn't include premium alcoholic drinks indicated in the Bar Menu. It is valid only for individual personal consumption, without limitations.
