Cuisine Paired With Culture

Cruise à la Française And Discover True Sophistication

Ponant Yacht Cruises & Expeditions applies its signature "French touch" to the simple, unhurried pleasures that have traditionally defined the yachting experience: service that anticipates (but always discreetly), food that inspires (augmented by regional delicacies), and décor that's simultaneously tasteful and chic. Onboard, each guest is free to move at his or her own pace. Scheduled activities are kept to a minimum; the emphasis here is on the self and the sea. The Adriatic, Asia, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, South America ... Ponant's fleet may number just four ships, but its reach extends to all corners of the globe. The line is also notable for its presence in the Arctic and Antarctic (no other fleet sails two of its vessels in the latter).
Life Onboard: Ponant Highlights
  • Four sleek ships including one three-masted, full-sail vessel crafted in the famous tradition
  • A maximum capacity of 264 passengers (and just 64 aboard the especially intimate Le Ponant)
  • Elegant and casual dining that celebrates France's great and flavorful gastronomic tradition
  • Spa and well-being offerings in association with French beauty houses Carita® and Sothys®
  • Seminars, conducted by passionate global experts, that add extra dimension to the sights you'll see
  • Themed sailings (most in partnership with distinguished artists, chefs, publications, etc.)
  • Winner, "Best Cruise Line For Luxury Small Ships" (Luxury Travel Advisor, 2012)
Rewards Points Program
Ponant's unique rewards system makes cruising more rewarding than ever. Reward Points Program allows you to earn points for certain actions you take - both in the reservation of a Ponant cruise, inviting your friends along, and more.

Once you register with Ponant, you'll be able to earn and accrue reward points, which are then redeemable at time of purchase towards the cost of your order. Rewards are an added bonus to your shopping experience on the site and just one of the ways Ponant makes sailing aboard one of their cruise ships even more rewarding.
Earning Reward Points
Rewards can currently be earned for the following actions:
  • Making purchases - every time you make a purchase you earn points based on the price of products purchased and these points are added to your Reward Points balance.
  • Subscribing to a newsletter for the first time.
  • Sending Invitations - Earn points by inviting your friends to join the site.
  • Converting Invitations to Customer - Earn points for every invitation you send out which leads to your friends registering on the site.
  • Converting Invitations to Order - Earn points for every invitation you send out which leads to a sale.
  • Review Submission - Earn points for submitting product reviews.
  • New Tag Submission - Earn points for adding tags to products.

Reward Points Exchange Rates

The value of reward points is determined by an exchange rate of both currency spent on products to points, and an exchange rate of points earned to currency for spending on future purchases.
