Ponant
Cruise
Description
  • Intimate ships with elegant casual onboard atmosphere
  • French cuisine cooked by French chefs
  • Visits exotic destinations around the world


Ponant's fleet of three virtually identical 264-passenger ships, Le Soleal, Le Boreal and L'Austral, offers an elegant, relaxed, yacht-like atmosphere onboard without losing the comforts of a cruise experience. Most cabins have balconies, and each ship has two restaurants, three lounges, a library/card room, an Internet nook, a spa and a fitness facility. About the only thing these three vessels, part of one of luxury cruising's youngest fleets, don't have are casinos. 

The 64-passenger Le Ponant, built in 1991, is a three-masted sailing ship. It sails some of the company's most exotic itineraries. 

Whichever ship you choose, expect intimate onboard spaces that inspire a congenial atmosphere among guests. The crew offer personalized service. Because this is a French cruise line, European cuisine is a hallmark of the experience (though on charters to U.S.-based travel companies, menus might be tweaked, slightly, to accommodate American tastes). 

One difference between Ponant's cruises and those of other upscale lines is that pricing is more a la carte. You could pay extra for shore excursions, cocktails (unless a drinks' package is included in your fare), Internet, gratuities and other services, depending on where you buy your cruise; the policies vary for U.S., U.K., French, German and Australian customers, so it can be confusing. 

The line's a la carte fares, though, are competitive for its upmarket niche, so Ponant's value-for-money ratio is high.
