Le Ponant

Cruise on board Ponant's Le Ponant

Inspired by classic nautical designs, the Le Ponant is an exquisite three-mast sailing yacht. It navigates some of the most beautiful destinations in the word, from the pristine beaches of the Caribbean to the tip of Europe’s Iberian Peninsula.

Containing just 32 staterooms, the ship’s capacity is limited to 64 passengers. Given its diminutive size, the Le Ponant feels more like a private yacht than a commercial cruise liner. Appropriately decorated in maritime-themed hues of blue and cream, the ship’s layout is very open, with a spacious sun deck, outdoor restaurant and easy access to the sea, permitting passengers to go swimming from the ship’s water sports platform.

Onboard Activities

Kids

Please be aware that Ponant, the cruise company that operates the Le Ponant, does not permit children under the age of three to embark on their ships. Children aged over three and under eight may only board the ship if they present an embarkation authorisation. This document should preferably be requested as soon as the child is registered as a traveller on the cruise. If you are travelling on an Expedition Cruise (a cruise that involves onshore excursions) all minors must be old enough to follow instructions and independently travel on rubber dinghies during disembarkation.

Dining

There are two main dining areas on board the Le Ponant: The Diamant Panoramic Restaurant and Karukèra Restaurant. Regardless of where passengers choose to eat, they can always expect to be served high quality cuisine, with a selection of classic French dishes and international fare. Breakfast and lunch are served as buffets, while dinner is slightly more elaborate, complemented by a selection of red, white and rosè wine. Alfresco dining is available on the terrace, and in the evening a pianist plays in the bar.
