Sydney 8th August 2018: National Geographic Expeditions, the travel business of one of the world's most trusted brands, and PONANT, a world leader of luxury expedition cruises, have today announced a new strategic partnership to create an extensive range of co-branded, luxury expedition cruises. With a shared common vision in premium experiences and responsible travel, PONANT and National Geographic Expeditions will offer an extensive range of expedition cruises throughout the world, targeting customers in Australia, NZ and Asia Pacific.

National Geographic Expeditions is the premium provider of travel experiences that embody the renowned National Geographic spirit of adventure, conservation and education. Offering unique access, experiences and expertise that only National Geographic can, the company also returns a portion of all proceeds to the non-profit National Geographic Society to support researchers and explorers who work to preserve, protect, and advance understanding of the planet and its people.

PONANT is a world leader in luxury expedition cruising operating a state of the art fleet of 7 small ships, increasing to 12 by 2021, with the delivery of new Expedition class vessels and a luxury hybrid Icebreaker powered by LNG. The full fleet has been clean ship' certified and offers a number of leading edge technologies to protect the environment, including recycling and reuse programmes, reduced exhaust emissions and sustainable purchasing practices. All efforts made by the luxury cruise operator are designed to respect the environment and marine life.

As part of the overall experience, PONANT will create unique itineraries to some of the most remote and inaccessible places on the planet, transporting guests in style and comfort along with innovative new features, including a new multi-sensory underwater lounge called Blue Eye. National Geographic Expeditions will provide a range of expedition resources on-board, including leading experts and National Geographic photographers to travel and engage with all guests to create an immersive and quality experience.

The luxury ships will offer an intimate experience with total passengers ranging from 180 to 240 per cruise and 130 itineraries have been designed for the next four years, with prices per person starting from A$4730 per person. Core destinations will be the Antarctic and Arctic, which will be complemented by a range of global expeditions covering all continents.

Tim Jones, Vice President Travel Asia Pacific, National Geographic Partners commented Today marks a milestone in growing our National Geographic Expeditions business in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region. In PONANT, we have a luxury and ethically minded partner with European flair, experience in traveling to ambitious locations, along with an expansive travel agent network. We will be working together to offer premium expedition experiences, creating unique itineraries that speak to the explorer in all of us.

Sarina Bratton AM, Chairman Asia Pacific for PONANT added We are thrilled and gratified that one of the greatest specialist media companies in the world has chosen PONANT to be their expedition cruise partner. This partnership brings together two highly respected globalorganisations with shared values and a common goal to inspire guests to live curiously, explore our planet and become ambassadors for sustainability.
