Compangie du Ponant is a French cruise line company based in Marseilles, operating five small ships with 64 to 264 guests for an international market. Many of their cruises have no single supplement. Experience personalised service in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Destinations are selected for the explorer in you. In the northern Summer from April to October all ships sail the UK and European coastlines from the Mediterranean to the Arctic, and west to Canada. For other months Grand Voyages reach South America, Antarctica, French Polynesia, and SE Asia. Themed European cruises focus on Golf, Classical Music, Jazz, Wellness, Bridge, Food and Wine. The four larger (and identical) ships have ice-strengthened hulls and Zodiacs for onshore exploration. There's a strong emphasis on coastal cruising, with long days in port, overnights, and late departures.

While only MY Le Ponant is a three-masted sailing barque, all five vessels become your private yachts. Ashore, discover cultures and scenery unseen by large cruise ships. On board the smart décor and modern facilities just invite you to relax, whether privately in your stateroom, or the library, or with fellow guests over a drink, as you recount the day’s activities. Cuisine is the finest French, with gourmet dishes and fine wines (and special diets are catered for). With Ponant, the ‘destination’ is both on-shore discovery, and the ship. Though mainly French, guests include families, couples and groups of friends from diverse backgrounds and ages. The ships are stabilised for optimum sailing conditions. Ponant Yacht Cruises was awarded Cruise Critic US Editors’ Pick 2014 "Best for Luxury".
