The new generation of luxury cruise liners | PONANT

Discover a new generation of cruise ships, the PONANT EXPLORERS, designed specifically for expeditionary voyages. PONANT opens the way to a new concept, launching four exceptional ships with names inspired by France's great explorers: Le Dumont d'Urville, Le Champlain, Le Bougainville, Le Lapérouse, Le Bellot & Le Surville.

PONANT's vessels are designed to host a limited number of passengers in a luxurious setting, with 92 cabins offering breathtaking sea views. Our latest-generation fleet remains the newest of any cruise line, with the most modern technology and equipment to ensure your safety while minimising the impact on our destinations. It also ensures your comfort on board and enables us to offer exclusive leisure activities. Enjoy our wide variety of outstanding services, as well as sophisticated French cuisine inspired by Ducasse. Take advantage of our infinity pools, the configurable on-board "marina," and a wide variety of activities including kayaking, big-game fishing, and stand-up paddle boarding: PONANT ships will take you even further, where others have never been.
