Le Ponant

The intimate size of Ponant’s flagship gives passengers the feeling they’re on a private yacht. It also allows the ship to maneuver to little-known ports of call that are only accessible to smaller ships. This limited-capacity yacht provides a welcoming atmosphere for just 32 guests. French style cuisine is served with great attention to detail in a comfortable environment. The atmosphere is both sophisticated and welcoming, and a French love of discovery and quest for authenticity combine to provide a well rounded experience. Two lounges and two restaurants complete the spaces of the beautiful ship.
