Activities And Entertainment

Ponant voyages offer a range of activities and entertainment that is very much in keeping with the premium, upmarket experience on board. Select ships have a heated saltwater pool and solarium on the uppermost deck, fitness centre and library. The onboard Theatre is home to guest lectures and enriching talks during the day, then transforms to an entertainment destination at night with show, musical performances or film screenings.

Dining And Bars

Dining aboard Ponant cruises is like a delightful adventure into the world of French culture and gastronomy. Ships have two main restaurants on board – the intimate Gastronomic Restaurant or the more casual Grill Restaurant. In the French tradition, dining is often accompanied by a selection of cheeses and fine wine chosen by the Ponant sommeliers. No matter what time of day, the dining options are many and varied, from fresh scrambled eggs or a continental breakfast to sandwiches, pasta or grilled meats. Beverages include renowned wines, local and imported beers, coffee, tea and an array of fresh juices. 24-hour in-room dining is available – and complimentary – to stateroom guests, offering fresh fruit, sandwiches and desserts.

Food and beverage packages

Ponant give you the opportunity to enjoy unlimited, complimentary drinks from a selection of wines, champagnes, spirits, mineral waters and non-alcoholic drinks. This includes drinks in your stateroom minibar, as well as room service drinks. Note that premium alcoholic drinks from the Bar Menu are not included in this selection.


Ponant Kids’ Club ensures children have an exciting time on board and gives them the chance to take part in board games, tea parties, piano lessons and numerous other activities. Fully supervised by junior team leaders, Ponant Kids’ Club also offers children the chance to engage activities which are tailored to the specific destinations or regions of the cruise. Scheduled activities vary each day, so there is always something fun to do. Please note: children under the age of three are not accepted for bookings on board Ponant cruises.
