PONANT seeks long-haul Aussie travellers for its European Grand Voyages
Edited by Travel Weekly


    PONANT has launched a selection of bespoke European Grand Voyages – sailings made of back-to-back combined itineraries offering the best of Europe to be experienced in 2025, as well as savings of up to $3,200 per person.

    PONANT has invited long-haul travelling guests from Australia and New Zealand looking at extended European stays to consider these combined itineraries for 2025.

    “PONANT’s commitment to providing unique and enriching explorations goes hand in hand with our recognition of the growing interest among Australian and New Zealand clients in experiencing the magic of Europe through our unique voyages,” Deb Corbett, GM of sales and Marketing for Asia Pacific said.

    “Our bespoke Grand Voyages are comprised of expertly combined itineraries which hold value for Australian and New Zealand travellers, who often have longer transit times to reach ports of disembarkation in Europe. These extended journeys enable them to immerse themselves in the wonders of Europe, exploring its diverse landscapes, cultures, and history amplified by PONANT’s small-ship access to ports and areas that larger vessels or land travel cannot reach”.
