Ponant has published a Mediterranean & Northern Europe brochure with itineraries for summer 2019.
The cruise company has included its latest additions in the PONANT EXPLORERS series, Le Bougainville and Le Dumont-d’Urville.
These new-generation ships combine a smaller capacity (92 staterooms) and Cleanship label awarded by Bureau Veritas.
Equipped with a removable marina platform enabling guests to swim and engage in other activities directly from the ship, as well as a submersible mini-port providing easy access to nautical activities (kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing and more), the new vessels also have a multi-sensory underwater lounge called Blue Eye.
For summer 2019, there are 46 cruises to the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, including 5 new itineraries and ports of call such as Gytheio, Syracuse and Brindisi.
Ponant’s ships can access places that are inaccessible to larger vessels such as in the Mediterranean: the Bay of Kotor, the Corinth Canal, Bonifacio, and Stromboli.
