The only French cruise line, Compagnie du Ponant is an integral part of France's great shipping tradition. Established in 1988, Compagnie du Ponant is owned by the CMA CGM Group, the world's third largest container shipping group and heir to the renowned Compagnie Générale Transatlantique French Line.

Each of their five ships, L'Austral, Le Boréal, Le Diamant, Le Levant and Le Ponant have their own individual personality and each symbolizes the art of cruising "à la française" in line with Compagnie du Ponant's philosophy.

Here you will find an atmosphere which is very particular to Compagnie du Ponant: a feeling that you are aboard your own private yacht!
