Compagnie du Ponant Launches Asia Brochure

Compagnie du Ponant has launched a new 64-page brochure featuring its new Asian itineraries for the winter season 2013/14. The French cruise line  is known for offering expedition-style itineraries, guided by experts, onboard luxury ships.

The line's newest ship, Le Soléal ( with 132 staterooms and suites), is due to join the fleet on July 1 2013 and will sail to Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Borneo, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, India and the Maldives. Because of the ship's size, it is able to berth in more central locations than bigger vessels.

Tours include a ten-night cruise aboard Le Soléal from Petropavlovsk in Russia’s Far East to Japan via the Kuril Islands. Departing on October 5 2013, prices start from £3969 per person including flights.

An eight-night Kuala Lumpur to Colombo itinerary departs on March 14 2014 and costs from £3036. Le Soléal calls at Penang, Phuket, Trincomalee and Hambantota. The itinerary includes four days in Yangon to explore the Shwedagon Pagoda, Bagan temples, Mandalay, the cultural capital, and the former royal city of Amarapura.
