Ponant partners with National Geographic
LUXURY expedition cruising company Ponant has signed an agreement with National Geographic Expeditions that will involve a series of new itineraries and expedition cruises to Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific passengers.
Under the new partnership, Ponant will create a range of voyage experiences to some of the world’s most remote and inaccessible places, while National Geographic Expeditions will offer a range of expedition resources on board, including hosting a selection of leading experts and National Geographic photographers who will travel and interact with guests to create “an immersive and quality experience.”
Ponant’s ships will carry between 180 and 240 passengers at a time, with a total of 130 itineraries due for release over the next four years, covering locations such as Antarctica and the Arctic.
“The partnership brings together two highly respected global organisations with shared values and a common goal to inspire guests to live curiously, explore our planet and become ambassadors for sustainability,” said Ponant chairman Asia Pacific, Sarina Bratton.
