Thirty Years of Ponant – Other Cruise News: James Cook – The Voyages

THE CRUISE EXAMINER AT CYBERCRUISES.COM BY KEVIN GRIFFIN

The Cruise Examiner for 4th June 2018

L'Austral

By 2021, L’Austral will be among ten expedition ships and a full icebreaker sailing worldwide for Ponant

Since its beginnings in April 1988, when it was founded by several officers of the French merchant marine, Ponant has been the only cruise line to fly the French flag. The line has introduced a new style of cruising, an amalgam of sea travel, exceptional itineraries and elegant hotel service and cuisine aboard ships on an intimate scale. By 2021, it will be the world’s largest expedition cruise company, with a full icebreaker, ten expedition ships and the line’s mascot, the original sailing ship Le Ponant.
