When Do You Want To Go?
Ponant was established in 1988 by Philippe Videau, Jean-Emmanuel Sauvé, and other officers of the French Merchant Navy, and has since become a leader in a new style of luxury cruising promoting the art of sea travel around the world.
It operates all around the world and offers itineraries rich in encounters and discovery. Their fleet has 13 ships, each of them has its own personality in line with the company philosophy. Their team offers exceptional expeditions into the most remote places on Earth in a five-star environment. The travel experience will be as authentic as sophisticated. Thanks to these small capacity ships, Ponant can dock in private ports and offer stopovers in preserved locations. Onboard, the limited number of passengers means that everybody can enjoy special moments and feel as though they are on a private yacht.
Ponant also aims to become a world leader in the field of sustainable development within the cruising industry, with the environment and ethics being at the heart of the brand, both in the regions they visit and in its relationships within the company and with its partners.

A refined design, a softly muted and at the same time convivial ambience together with a deliberately restricted number of cabins all contribute to the modernity of Le Bellot, a unique ship in the world of cruising.
