There are many good cruising companies and being so highly competitive we need to be at the top of our game in order to be successful. Nothing could be more satisfying than to have topped Cruise

Critic’s Small Ship Award Category four times in this year’s voting.”

 “Thanks go to all who voted for PONANT and my special thanks to all PONANT staff ashore and onboard Le Boreal, in particular, who contribute at every level to provide the high levels of service delivery, often going beyond that expected by our guests.”
