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 pristine and unique regions - the European and Canadian Arctic, South America's Patagonia and the Chilean 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 the 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, travellers are usually 50-plus, well to do and well-travelled, interested in engaging with the destination.
