Whether you sail the ‘White Continent’ of Antarctica, explore exotic locales in the Indian Ocean, or unearth history on European shores, you will discover some of the world’s most incredible destinations.

We are a French-flagged cruise line offering Americans the best value on our luxury cruises for 2012. Currently, we boast five distinctive vessels, ranging from an elegant 64 guest sailing yacht, to a 264 guest mega-yacht.

At Compagnie du Ponant we are dedicated to offering a cruise experience unlike any other. All five of our vessels showcase the best France has to offer: delicious cuisine, tasteful accommodations and a chic, yet informal atmosphere. Due to the intimate size of the vessels, guests feel as if they are sailing on their own private yacht and the itineraries include many ports and islands not accessible to large cruise ships. In addition to the best available tours, our 1:2 staff to guest ratio also guarantees the best in personalized service.

Set for sail and enjoy the excellent on-ship amenities. Dine in your choice of restaurants, sip on cocktails in the comfortable lounge or bars, catch up on your reading at the library, go for a dip in the swimming pool, or check out the beauty and fitness area with sauna, and salon. A large Sun Deck provides breathtaking panoramas, as well as offers plenty of space for relaxing in the sun and open air. Guests will also appreciate the spacious and well appointed staterooms and suites equipped with all the comforts of home. Relax watching your flat screen tv, and after a day of excitement fall asleep in your comfortable king sized bed.

These luxurious ships sail to all the unexplored corners of the world including the Mediterranean, Persian Gulf, Northern Europe, Greenland, Iceland, Antarctica, the Maldives, India, French Polynesian, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Canada’s Arctic, New England, South America, Panama Canal and the Caribbean.

Listen to the expertise of notable lecturers and naturalists as you traverse the icy waters of the Atlantic, discover the architectural heritage of the Dalmatian coast, marvel at the awe-inspiring beauty of a tropical Caribbean paradise, or follow in the footsteps of the Vikings to a land sculpted into lakes and glaciers.

Explore your surroundings in an unhurried pace and let the beauty that surrounds you stir your senses. Let our team worry about the details, while you concentrate on losing yourself in the unique ambiance of a foreign land.

No matter where you wish to travel, our cruises will take you off the beaten path to a whole new world of adventure.
