Ponant Cruises Powered By Docstoc
					Discover exceptional sites, inaccessible to large ships, and enjoy a privileged ‘yacht-like’ cruise experience. Savour the extreme comfort of a cruise on board ships of an intimate size. 32 cabins on Le Ponant, 45 cabins on Le Levant, 113 cabins and suites on Le Diamant and soon 132 cabins and suites on each L’Austral and Le Boreal. A limited number of passengers, comfortable cabins, beautifully decorated, and convivial public areas create a unique atmosphere and warm ambiance, where you will experience magical moments. Meals are carefully prepared by chefs from France, and are one of the highlights of these cruises. The French-inspired cuisine and attentive yet discreet service from a bilingual (French-English) crew is noted for the best traditions in on board service.

Pulling distant horizons closer together, taking you to places you thought were beyond your reach, these are the things Discovery finds easy. On board, Discovery wraps all of today’s modern, expected comforts within a sleek exterior reminiscent of the classic liners of yesteryear. Small enough to reach out-of-the-way ports, large enough to make light work of crossing the great oceans Discovery shuns the excesses of today’s mega liners. A hallmark of any Discovery cruise is their ever-popular program of lecturers. On board will be a number of eminent speakers, each chosen for their expertise and interest in the places we cruise to. With her wide, sweeping decks and classical lines, plus space on board that belied her size, Discovery makes for the perfect travelling companion. With only 650 guests on board – this is the way cruising was meant to be.

Historic voyages to the cradle of western civilization. Rarely does a philosophy in cruise travel product come along that aims to open a window into the origins and genius of western civilization. These journeys however, are not only about history, they are meant to open windows (or portals) of archaeological treasures and views to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Voyages to Antiquity’s aim is not only for the amateur or professional historian, but also for people who simply want to understand the history, art, culture and myths of our ancient world. In contrast to the massive vessels that cruise from major port to major port of the Mediterranean, we have a mid-sized vessel that can deliver the smaller ports, like that of our ancestors. All nine of our voyages have been meticulously planned, in conjunction with noted historians, to give you time to explore the sites and history of our journey – many with overnights in port to allow time to truly experience the places we visit.
