Ponant's Le Boreal made a grand entrance to New York Harbor on Thursday. Ship's maiden call was accompanied by a fireboat spraying plumes of water.

The ship docked at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal where co-founder and ceo of Ponant, Jean-Emmanuel Sauvée, and Navin Sawhney, ceo for the Americas, hosted a group of media and VIPs.
