Compagnie du Ponant Christmas and New Year

Christmas cruises 2018, 2019 New Year's Eve

Rating:

Ponant specializes in luxury polar cruise expeditions, occupying the market's top position for upscale, all-inclusive travel to destinations in Arctic and Antarctica. All vessels are with ice-strengthened hulls, allowing smooth and safe operations in the planet's most prestine and unique regions - the European and Canadian Arctic, South America's Patagonia and Chillean Fjords, and Antarctica - Earth's most special travel destination.

The magnificent Ponant ships are part of one of the youngest fleets in luxury cruising. Whichever yacht you choose, expect intimate public spaces that inspire a friendly atmosphere among guests. Ponant's crew provide personalized service. As this is a French line, European cuisine is the hallmark of cruise experience. However, on charters to U.S. travel companies, menus are tweaked, slightly, in order to accommodate American tastes. About the only thing Ponant's vessels don't have are casinos.

Ponant Cruises attracts mostly French vacationers, with a mix of other Europeans and some Americans. Full-ship charters are often available through the US travel companies Abercrombie+Kent (Illinois) and Tauck (Connecticut). On these Christmas and New Year voyages, travelers are usually 50-plus, well to do and well traveled, interested in engaging with the destination.

Next tables show all Ponant Christmas New Year cruise itineraries 2018-2019 as ships, departure ports, call ports (dates and arrival / departure times) and regions.

All Compagnie du Ponant Christmas and New Year cruise offers listed here are just itineraries and not cruise deals for sale. Vessels are ordered alphabetically. Comparing all the ships in the Compagnie du Ponant fleet is a most convenient way to select the best for you Holiday voyages as departures (homeports, dates), destinations (regions, visited countries), itineraries (ports of call, arrival dates, port times) and also to compare cruise prices.

CruiseMapper shows cruise prices per person. These are only indicative fares on the ship's lowest category staterooms. All rates are based on double occupancy (twin share) and don't include cruise line or travel agency promotions, group booking rates or any other special offers and discounts.
