PONANT, the World Leader in polar expeditions, is expanding its unique luxury expedition cruise concept with the arrival of four new sisterships, the PONANT EXPLORERS.

PONANT guests will be able to enjoy new travel experiences, including an expanded range of tropical expeditions. Offering a unique blend of discovery and exceptional comfort, even in the most remote corners of the world, is our hallmark.



Availability (Months)


The four new stars of our fleet pay tribute to the great French explorers and will carry guests in the wake of these men who, long ago, set off for adventure in search of new lands. Taking inspiration from these navigators was a natural choice for PONANT, the only French cruise line to sail to little-known, remote lands that are inaccessible to larger ships. 

Le Lapérouse and Le Champlain will join the fleet in 2018, followed by Le Bougainville and Le Dumont-d’Urville in 2019. In keeping with our cruise line’s philosophy, each ship combines a limited guest capacity, sleek design, ships with cutting-edge technology, and respect for the environment. They will enable PONANT to offer an ever-wider range of destinations.



Featuring innovative equipment, elegantly designed cabins, spacious suites with windows, and lounge areas opening on to the outside, these four new limited-capacity yachts (boasting only 92 cabins and suites) will give you a unique cruising experience thanks to their design and smaller size.
