Experience Small Ship Luxury with Ponant & Priceline

There's a certain allure to the French: something to do with their impeccable taste, delicious food, and effortlessly chic style. Ponant combines all these qualities and more to create a cruise vacation experience that is undeniably luxurious and unmistakably French. The fleet's ships hold between 64 and 226 guests each, making each voyage feel like an exclusive event - what Ponant calls the "privileged version of a cruise." Small ships allow travelers to visit charming seaside ports in addition to the big-name cities frequented by larger cruise ships, and the fleet's French registry grants it access to unique destinations that are often inaccessible to other cruise lines.

When it comes to life onboard, the atmosphere follows the décor: elegant without being stuffy, sophisticated yet casual. The wait staff is always attentive, never intrusive; cabins are plush and comfortable, but still refined. Between ports, you can learn more about the cities on your itinerary with onboard seminars and lectures, keep in shape in the onboard fitness center, or relax with a face or body treatment in the onboard spa. When it comes time to dine, Ponant's selection of French and continental cuisine will satisfy even the most discerning foodies, and wine - along with tea and coffee - is always on the house.

Sailing with Ponant is not only a smart choice, but an environmentally responsible one, too. You'll find eco-friendly features on all their vessels, including low energy light bulbs, reduced exhaust emissions, and quiet and economic electric propulsion systems.

On a Ponant Yacht Cruise to South America, you’ll discover an awe-inspiring diversity of landscape: mangrove swamps, snow capped volcanoes, arid deserts, and dense forests. Choose a northern itinerary to explore the Panama Canal, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, or embark from the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, Argentina on an unforgettable journey around Cape Horn. You’ll sail through the Beagle Channel before cruising past a maze of glaciers in the Chilean Channels, where you’ll spot seals, sea lions, and dolphins. No matter which region you choose to cruise, you’re in for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
