The only French cruise line and world leader in luxury expeditions, PONANT perpetuates the great French maritime tradition, one that offers exceptional destinations on small capacity ships embodying a lifestyle "à la française": a travel concept that combines intimacy and curiosity, luxury and authencity.
For 30 years now, our luxury cruise ships have been stopping at both famous, well-known ports of call and secret, hidden-away anchorages accssible only to low-capacity boats. The number one high-end polar cruise operator, we offer a range of discovery expeditions to the majestic landscapes of the Far North and the Artic, sunny excursions to the heart of the Mediterranean, sea voyages along Celtic coasts and beautiful gateways to the secret islands of the Pacific.
The choice creates responsibilities towards the ecosystems of which these places are made up and the local communities that live there.
PONANT recognises its corporate social responsibility (CSR) and strives to become a global benchmark with regard to sustainable development in its cruise activities. PONANT's ambition is to become a world leader in sustainable development in the cruise industry.
