The French Touch

The French Touch is above all a French crew, there to welcome you and ensure your well-being during your cruise.

It’s also the French art of living that travels with them, where discreet service and excellent cuisine naturally take pride of place. Each day, French chefs will introduce you to fragrant flavours, cheeses carefully selected by expert cheese affineurs, delicious specialty breads and sweet pastries. All of this is accompanied by a selection of fine wines to complement your meal, or you may choose from a superb “à la carte” list of grand cru wines and our on-board sommelier will be only too happy to advise you.

The French Touch is also evident in their choice of partners, whose expertise and passion for their work matches PONANT's own quest for excellence: interior design by Jean-Philippe NUEL, beauty treatments by Sothy’s, fabrics by Pierre FREY, travel beauty kits by L’Occitane, a range of boutiques including Lacoste and Façonnable...

Finally, the French Touch is perhaps simply the subtle blend of relaxed elegance and conviviality, that certain je ne sais quoi that passengers so appreciate, buoyed by the elegant authenticity of their trips and the personality of our ships.

Care for the Environment

PONANT's concern for the health and well-being of the planet is demonstrated by their active involvement in organisations dedicated to the promotion of ecologically responsible tourism and to the sharing of best practices. They are a proud member of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators and a signatory of La Charte Bleue d’Armateurs de France, both of which bind them to follow the most stringent rules and regulations governing safety and environmental protection.

Above and beyond participation in these organisations, PONANT have taken the additional step of having all of their ships certified “Clean Ship” by the French classification society, Bureau Veritas, one of the world’s major ship classification societies. This coveted and seldom-awarded certification recognises that the PONANT fleet—from initial design and construction to seagoing operations—has adopted the most environmentally responsible materials, equipment, and management procedures possible.
