Our Insight

Why Ponant

There are so many reasons to choose Ponant, not least their super modern and innovative ships, purpose-built to operate way off the beaten track. These ships are very adaptable - perfect for cold water cruising with their light-filled lounges, and also for warm weather, enjoying an indoor/outdoor style and spacious pool deck with direct access to the sea. Itineraries are so wide-ranging that there will be options to entrance even the most world-weary globetrotter.

The four new expedition ships - Le Champlain, Le Laperouse, Le Bougainville and Le Dumant d'Urville - will be pioneering leaders in their field.

Dining inspired by Alain Ducasse, stylish accommodation all with sea view and balcony, and spacious lounges for lectures and socialising are all key to the four new expedition sister ships. All drinks are included in your cruise fare.

Even more importantly, the company is working with cutting edge technology to minimise its impact on the planet, with the implementation of best practices in recycling, reuse of solid waste and waste water, certification of the ships by the international 'Clean Ship' label, a quiet and economical electric propulsion system, MDO (Marine Diesel Oil) engines that are lighter and produce less pollution, and a sonar sand-bank detection system.

On board, some amazing innovations will make your experience extra special, with a three position hydraulic deck at the back of the ship, perfect for easy embarkation and disembarkation, not to mention watersports, and an extraordinary Blue Eye underwater lounge' which will enable you to enjoy the views not only above but also below the water.
