PONANT YACHT CRUISES . . . LIFE "À LA FRANÇAISE"

Discover a New Kind of Cruise with Ponant & JetBlue Cruises

Take a journey with Ponant Yacht Cruises to experience that elusive blend of sophistication and easy intimacy that is the trademark of life "à la française."  Ponant's exquisite attention to detail shows itself in unique, carefully crafted itineraries, attentive service, and of course, impeccable French-inspired cuisine. Small vessels keep the guest list between 64 and 226 passengers, making your trip feel more like a private sailing or jaunt on a friend's yacht than a typical cruise experience. Small ships also allow you to get up-close-and-personal with beautiful sites and landscapes, and  Ponant's French registry permits stops in unique destinations often inaccessible to other fleets.

On board one of Ponant's luxurious vessels, you'll find refined design, elegant décor, and plush oceanview cabins perfect for sea- and star-gazing. You'll feel right at home with complimentary mineral, water, tea, and coffee whenever your heart desires - not to mention complimentary wine with lunch and dinner. Unwind with a face or body treatment in the onboard spa, soak in the sunshine on the pool deck, or stay in shape in the onboard fitness center. Seminars and lectures featuring international experts will provide you with the historical and cultural backdrop of your destinations, helping you to create truly immersive experiences on shore. For a unique, personalized cruise experience, try a theme cruise - customized speakers and activities cover topics ranging from golf to classical music, bridge, or diving.

Sophistication without stuffiness, refinement mixed with casual elegance - it's an ambience that's difficult to achieve, but so easy to get used to. For those looking for an alternative to big-ship cruising, Ponant offers authentic, intimate travel experiences in breathtaking destinations around the world. Discover an entirely new kind of cruising - the French way - with Ponant and JetBlue Cruises.
