Ponant and National Geographic have joined forces, combining their specific areas of expertise to offer a range of unique and enriching expedition cruises. A collection of 18 expeditions stretches from Alaska to Antarctica, a taste of what is to come from this recently announced partnership which will number 130 expeditions by 2021.
Aboard Ponant’s luxury small expedition ships accompanied by Ponant’s experienced Expedition Team as well as National Geographic destination experts, award-winning photographers and photojournalists, adventurous and inquisitive guests will sail to destinations that are among the most remote, the most fascinating and the wildest on the planet. Here they will explore and encounter the wonders of the world up close, right at the sources, and be transformed by these enriching experiences.
“This inaugural brochure features a selection of National Geographic & Ponant Expeditions to many regions and destinations that few travellers ever see. Exciting, immersive, wild … some with experiences perhaps outside your comfort zone, yet explored in comfort from Ponant’s fleet of modern small expedition ships. Together we are creating exciting new expedition cruising opportunities,” explained Monique Ponfoort, Ponant’s Vice President Asia Pacific.
