Compagnie du Ponant – PONANT
This French cruise company enjoys small luxurious yachts. They have a French crew of whom most speak English. Their attentive service is what one would expect from the best hotels or restaurants. As you might expect, the best chefs and French gastronomy. They invite you to sail in a five-star environment and enjoy a travel experience they ensure is simultaneously authentic and sophisticated. Founded in April 1988 by Philippe Videau, Jean-Emmanuel Sauvé, and other officers of the French Merchant Navy each ship is named after a famous French seafaring explorer.
Paul Gauguin Cruises was purchased by Ponant in 2019.
