PONANT, the world’s only French-owned cruise line, has released its brochure presenting Mediterranean & Northern Europe itineraries for the April to November 2019 season. The cruise company is offering the chance to discover or rediscover a unique heritage by sea aboard its ships, including the latest additions to its PONANT EXPLORERS series, Le Bougainville and Le Dumont-d’Urville.
Maiden season for two ships in the PONANT EXPLORERS series: Le Bougainville and Le Dumont-d’Urville. The northern summer 2019 season shines the spotlight on Le Bougainville and Le Dumont-d’Urville. These exceptional new-generation ships in the PONANT EXPLORERS series combine a smaller capacity (92 staterooms) and respect for the environment (Cleanship label awarded by Bureau Veritas).

Equipped with a dynamic marina platform enabling guests to swim and engage in other activities directly from the ship, as well as a submersible mini-port providing easy access to a number of nautical activities (kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing and more), these new stars of the fleet also boast a multi-sensory underwater lounge called Blue Eye, offering guests a new experience of the subaquatic world.
46 cruises to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, including 5 new itineraries: From the Adriatic to the Aegean Sea, and the Atlantic coast to the Baltic Sea, Europe represents a unique travel experience. For the April to November 2019 period, 46 cruises to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe have been carefully designed by the PONANT experts, including 5 new itineraries and unique ports of call such as Gytheio, Syracuse and Brindisi.

Culture or relaxation, landmarks or exceptional natural sites… PONANT offers itineraries for discovering little-known destinations that are inaccessible to larger ships, as well as the most beautiful sailing spots in the Mediterranean: the Bay of Kotor, the Corinth Canal, Bonifacio and its white cliffs, or Stromboli…
