Announcing the sales opening, Monique Ponfoort, Vice President PONANT Asia Pacific commented: “Over the past few years we have seen growing interest in the Caribbean and South America, and so in order to meet this demand we have expanded our range of voyages with a selection of itineraries, destinations and shore excursion options that offer all the classic must-see highlights plus visits to exciting lesser-visited destinations as well.

Once again the PONANT fleet demonstrates the advantages of compact size, being able to access destinations large ships simply cannot reach. This provides us with the opportunity to introduce our guests to remote places, meet locals not impacted by mass tourism and immerse them in the local cultures and experiences that curious travellers are seeking.

Evocative destinations include the Great Blue Hole in Belize and the shimmering seabeds of the Grenadines (perfect for novice and experienced Scuba divers alike), or probing the Amazon, discovering vestiges of pre-Columbian civilisations and the rich architectural heritage of the colonial period. Transit the famed Panama Canal. Visit ancient Mayan sites such as the pyramids of Tikal, wonder at glacial Chilean fjords, all the while travelling in the refined comfort of the latest-generation small luxury expedition ships. All is revealed on our website.”

Enjoy a relaxed ambiance and the difference small ship cruising offers, venturing where large ships simply cannot, with a dash of French panache that is PONANT’s indelible signature.
