Le Ponant

Captivating and beautiful, Le Ponant is a sleek sail-ship that boasts three towering masts that reach almost 60 feet in height. Capable of carrying only 64 guests and 32 crew members, she’s the longest serving member of Ponant’s fleet and still incredibly elegant. Le Ponant offers guests a relaxed onboard atmosphere and a French-chic ambience that resonates right through the vessel; from the excellent-designed staterooms, to the delicious cuisine served in the ship’s main restaurant, the lovely Karukera Dining Room. Guests can enjoy sailings on Le Ponant to an exciting variety of destinations throughout western Africa, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean and comes highly recommended for fans of small-ship cruises.
