Compagnie Du Ponant new brochure - Expeditions in Antarctica - for 2014/2015 Season




Leading French cruise line and 5-star Expedition specialist Compagnie Du Ponant has launched its new brochure of 5-star Expeditions in Antarctica for the 2014/2015 Season.

THE ANTARCTIC EXPERIENCE

The Antarctic brochure highlights Compagnie Du Ponant's expertise in the polar parts of the world where it has been offering a range of exceptional cruises since 1999 as once in a lifetime destinations.

Le Soléal launched in June 2013. Passengers gain privileged access to exceptional wonders of nature, thanks to its small capacity and latest generation technology designed specifically for polar cruises. An exclusive experience awaits travellers in the company of renowned South Pole experts aboard the luxurious French-flag yacht. Compagnie Du Ponant sets themselves apart from other expeditions through their five star signature concept allowing travellers to explore these extreme regions in luxury and comfort worthy of the world's best hotels.

ACCESS TREASURES OF THE WORLD BY SEA

Compagnie Du Ponant introduces three unusual itineraries embracing some exceptional ports of call (including nine Ushuaia-Ushuaia departures). A haven for truly unique flora and fauna, these strictly protected sites can only be reached by small ships, which in this region are limited to 200 maximum on board guests.

Aboard Le Soléal, cruises are punctuated by fascinating cultural, historic and geological encounters as a select group of speakers and guides share their passion for the region. At sea, every Zodiac® outing provides a different spectacle, be it coming face to face with vast colonies of penguins or Weddell seals, elephant seals, albatrosses or a group of humpback whales.
