French luxury and cruise company PONANT has announced an extensive range of voyages for the period September 2016 to May 2017. A selection of 53 itineraries appealing to both traditional cruise travellers and adventurous travellers alike.
The list is long, the choice varied. Voyages that commence and finish in easy-to-reach ports while in-between time visiting destinations (some rarely visited), often inaccessible to large ships, with spectacular flora, fauna and landscapes, and unforgettable cultural experiences. Interludes from daily life.
Explore from Asia (10 voyages to select from) to the Pacific and Oceania region (8), the enchanting French Caribbean (4) to Africa (3), Antarctica (18) and South America (10).
Be it samurai and sumo, bleached beaches and soft white sand, vertiginous waterfalls, penguin colonies, the lush scents of the tropics or the luminous light of the near-setting sun in Antarctica, the choice is here. http://bit.ly/PONANT-News-Sept16-May17
Luxury yacht cruise or an expedition in luxury? Designed equally for those who enjoy an afternoon siesta comfortably settled on a sun lounge, book and gin and tonic within lazy reach….. Or, for intellectually curious travellers, perhaps the history, art and architecture of Asia in all her guises. For the adventurous, the mental and physical stimulus of Zodiac exploration, guided by the specialist expedition team with their collective eye for nature’s minutiae.
Small ships – the youngest fleet afloat – or traditional sailing yacht? Again the choice is here. Sailing from tropical islands to ice caps, this collection of itineraries ranges in duration from a convenient 7 nights to a generous16 nights, with most around 10 nights.
The PONANT hallmark – French ambiance, fine food and wines (open bar included, of course), intuitive service, indulgent pampering options and renowned design touches, all the while travelling in understated luxury – is stamped all over this collection of itineraries.
Visit Vietnam, French Polynesia, Chile, Cape Verde Islands, French Antilles, Japan, Panama, The Grenadines, Easter Island, the Sub Antarctic Islands, and much more, including an inaugural voyage to New York.
