A leader in luxury expeditions and the only French cruise company, PONANT, is delighted to announce its partnership on the British Library major new exhibition James Cook: The Voyages marking 250 years since James Cook’s ship Endeavour first set sail from Plymouth. The exhibition will feature stunning artworks, original maps and handwritten journals, from iconic depictions of people and landscapes by expedition artists and local dignitaries.
This comes at a time when PONANT is launching a new class of ships, The PONANT EXPLORERS. The small luxury expedition vessels are specially designed to bring passengers where others do not go. Each of them will feature the world’s first multi-sensory underwater lounge, the Blue Eye. PONANT has just announced the order of two more ships in the EXPLORERS series bringing the number of new ships being launched between 2018 and 2020 to six. The new ships will bear the name of famous French mariners and explorers: Le Lapérouse, Le Bougainville, Le Dumont d’Urville, Le Champlain, Le Bellot and Le Surville.
