Compagnie Du Ponant Opens Sales For 2015-2016 Antarctic Cruises

August 8, 2014 Cruise No Comments Email Email

The world’s only French-flagged cruise line and top cruise line worldwide in polar expeditions for 15 years, COMPAGNIE DU PONANT’s itineraries to the Antarctic for the 2015-2016  season are now open for bookings.

Including Open Bar, these cruises benefit from the PONANT BONUS (up to 30% savings on brochure prices) for a limited period, and may be extended with a host of pre and post cruise programmes.


Exploring the world’s extreme regions in five-star comfort is a unique concept created by COMPAGNIE DU PONANT that has become its hallmark.

From November 2015 to January 2016, COMPAGNIE DU PONANT has three outstanding itineraries offering a genuine polar safari experience to observe the region’s unique wildlife in its natural habitat. Aboard LE BORÉAL, L’AUSTRAL and LE LYRIAL, luxury French-flag yachts of 122 to 132 staterooms and suites, designed for polar cruises and complying with the international “Green Ship” label, passengers gain access to protected sites only accessible to small capacity ships, limited in this region to 200 passengers.Photo-2

Flexibility at all times is the approach that sets these cruises apart, with Zodiac® outings to get passengers as close as it is possible to be to nature, with time to linger over the region’s most emblematic sites. At any moment the ship may alter its course to admire the acrobatics of a humpback whale or land passengers on a beach to meet a particularly impressive penguin colony. It is a unique experience made all the more interesting by renowned South Pole specialists who are only too delighted to share their views and passion for these polar lands which they have been roaming for years.
