PONANT YACHT CRUISES: FRENCH-STYLE LUXURY

One-of-a-Kind Yacht Cruising with Ponant & Orbitz Cruises

If you're looking for an intimate, authentic vacation experience filled with unforgettable memories in exquisite destinations around the world, look no further than Ponant Yacht Cruises. This is no ordinary cruise line - with small ships carrying no more than 230 guests apiece (sometimes as few as 64!), Ponant can guarantee you a cruise experience like no other. Be prepared to get up-close-and-personal with your destinations - small ships mean easier access to charming port towns and seaside vistas - and visit countries often passed over by other ships, like Cuba or Libya. Shore excursions provide truly one-of-a-kind experiences: you can scuba dive in the Mediterranean, hike through a Caribbean rainforest, or attend a village feast in rural Russia.

Ponant's immersive philosophy extends to the onboard experience as well. Lectures and seminars by international experts extend your knowledge of your destinations' culture and history, and theme cruises offer speakers and activities catered to interests of all kinds, from golf to jazz music. Spend downtime relaxing by the pool, or head to the onboard spa for a variety of face, body, and wellness treatments.

Exquisite French-inspired cuisine, elegant décor, and impeccable service combine to create a distinctly French ambience on board: sophisticated, yet always comfortable. Discover the meaning of life "à la française" with Ponant and Orbitz Cruises.

On Ponant's intimate yacht cruises, you'll get a chance to explore a side of Europe usually hidden to tourists - small seaside towns, off-the-beaten-track landscapes, and authentic cultural experiences you'll remember forever.
