Ship Overview

The world's first luxury icebreaker cruise ship

Reach the Geographic North Pole, complete an Arctic Ocean crossing, discover Greenland's extreme North East, or probe the icy wilderness of Antarctica…beginning in 2021, PONANT will be taking passengers in the footsteps of the great polar explorers aboard the newest addition to the fleet. With a refined onboard ambiance and luxury services—never before available in the far extremes of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres—with this new vessel PONANT provides more than just conventional cruises, but true polar odyssey expeditions.
