Ponant Yacht Cruises

Embark on a luxury cruise aboard one of the Ponant ships for an exclusive and different experience of sea travel. Combining exceptional itineraries and 5-star hotel services, our French-style cruises are designed to offer you excellence.

For over 25 years, our luxurious ships have been calling in mythical ports and little-known anchorages only accessible to smaller ships. As the leading provider of high-end expedition cruises, we also offer sunny short breaks in the heart of the Mediterranean, cruises along the Celtic shores, and stunning trips to the faraway islands of the Pacific.

An exceptional fleet

PONANT invites you to discover – or rediscover – incredible destinations on board its five French-flagged ships:

  • Le Ponant, a three-masted yacht with 32 cabins for a cruise that has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere
  • L’Austral, Le Boréal and Le Soléal, three luxurious ships with 132 cabins and elegant, understated exterior and interior lines
  • And our latest jewel, Le Lyrial, a fourth sistership with 122 cabins, delivered in spring 2015.

Accommodating a maximum of 264 passengers, our ships let you maintain your privacy; you feel as if you are sailing on your own private yacht. A yacht serving the legendary ports of call and secret harbours that are only accessible to small ships.

PONANT is your unique contact for the best possible travel experience:

  • Your cruise and the various shore excursions
  • Your flights, with a choice between different airlines and classes (with some offering special prices for our PONANT passengers)
  • Your transfers before/after your cruise between airport and embarkation/disembarkation port (private bespoke transfers are also possible)
  • Your pre- and post-cruise programmes to extend your trip with total peace of mind
