The World’s First Luxury Icebreaker to be built by Ponant

Reach the Geographic North Pole, complete an Arctic Ocean crossing, discover Greenland’s extreme North East or probe the icy wilderness of Antarctica…beginning in 2021, PONANT will be taking guests in the footsteps of the great polar explorers aboard a next-generation luxury icebreaker—the first of its kind in the world of cruising.

With a refined on board ambience and luxury services – never before available in the far extremes of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres – with the new icebreaker vessel Ponant provides not just cruises, but true expedition polar odysseys.
The new Ice Breaker will be the first ever PC2 Polar Class luxury cruise ship, this hybrid electric icebreaker powered by Liquified Natural Gas, at the cutting edge of technology, will be a real pioneer in terms of environmental protection.

Drawing on more than two decades of experience in sensitive regions, Ponant is the only cruise company in the world to design its future itineraries in-house, with its own expedition teams. Thanks to exploratory visits, Environmental Impact Assessments and the protocols developed by the company, the itineraries of the Ponant Icebreaker will be established with the greatest respect for the environment.
