White Christmas with Ponant

#expeditioncruising .

We may be in winter, but the heat of summer will be here before we know it. And with it come plans for the traditional holiday season. The same ritual this year-end or, perhaps, something completely different?

PONANT’s range of 10 to 16 nights’ voyages offer the choice of a guaranteed White Christmas in Antarctica, the option of basking in Seychelles or, closer to home, enjoying luxurious cruising along Australia’s East Coast. Something to suit all tastes.

“Why not consider a year-end or New Year polar or tropical celebratory cruise for a holiday packed full of outstanding memories? More than simply enjoying fine cuisine and inclusive wines (and no washing up), experience an emotionally uplifting holiday in absolute comfort aboard one of PONANT’s modern award-winning luxurious small ships during the southern summer holiday period,” suggests Monique Ponfoort, Vice President PONANT Asia Pacific.

Visit the Great White Continent, Falkland Islands and South Georgia, and immerse yourself in the ever-changing vistas and wildlife these picture-perfect destinations offer. From the early morning glow as the sun climbs above the mountains, to the intense cerulean skies of mid-day, revel in Zodiac® cruising and regular explorations ashore in the company of expert polar expedition teams.
Marvel at the world’s largest icebergs and countless fur seals, penguins, albatross, elephant seals, orcas and whales living side by side in this unique land and seascape. A spell-binding atmosphere of total serenity unequalled anywhere else on Earth.

Or perhaps the warmth of Seychelles, Aldabra lagoon and a visit to Cosmoledo Island, considered the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean appeals? Travel in the company of a National Geographic Expert and Photographer to see and learn more about these far-flung atolls and islands.

A third option for a year-end celebration is a relaxing cruise down the East Coast of Australia enjoying exploration of the Great Barrier Reef and islands as you meander between Cairns and Sydney, arriving in time to spend Christmas Day on board Le Lapérouse in one of the most beautiful harbours in the world.

Whichever PONANT voyage you choose, onboard your luxury small ship, creature comforts prevail. Enjoy French luxury and ambiance, and experience the difference premium small ship expedition cruising offers. Relax in the heated the swimming pool, enjoy spa therapy to ease tired muscles or simply as a pampering indulgence. An inclusive Open Bar provides guests the chance to unwind with a beer, a glass of chardonnay or, perhaps, a cocktail. Later, reflecting the traditional holiday season, the choice of fine cuisine, the flavours complimented with world-class wines.
