Discover PONANT

The only French cruise line and world leader in luxury expeditions, PONANT perpetuates the great French maritime tradition, one that offers exceptional destinations on small capacity ships embodying a lifestyle “à la française”: a travel concept that combines intimacy and curiosity, luxury and authenticity.

Our DNA

From the moment of its creation, PONANT made the bold decision to focus on smaller cruise ships. And in keeping with our fleet, our teams offer each employee the possibility to play their part and contribute to the company’s development. An entrepreneurial spirit is part of our DNA and has persisted thanks to the presence in our head office of one of Ponant’s co-founders, Jean Emmanuel Sauvée. A shared passion for the sea and the wish to travel helps to unite our teams, who are devoted to their jobs.

 

Our expertise

The only French yacht cruise company, Ponant has become a leader in a new style of luxury cruising and promotes the art of sea travel around the world. Ponant is a key player in the luxury sector and a staunch proponent of the French maritime tradition with its high quality services. The excellence, refinement and eye for detail of our employees are the keys to our success. Ponant is now continuing its development with a shareholder who shares this same vision for the future: Artémis, the holding of the Pinault family.

A unique approach to cruising, PONANT yacht cruises reinvent the cruise concept and offer a new way to discover or rediscover iconic destinations by providing:

  • Access deep into the very heart of ports and harbours, from the most iconic to the most secret and least known,
  • A more friendly and personal cruise experience onboard refined, intimately-sized ships,
  • Opportunities to encounter and meet local peoples,
  • Passengers with the benefit of the presence onboard of honoured guests and expert speakers invited to share their specialist knowledge and passion.

Our values

PONANT shares strong values with its employees: Expertise, Passion, Commitment and Professionalism. Every day these values take shape around a shared ambition for development. Our employees all share a taste for challenges and a love of the world of travel.
