Sail with Confidence
Whether on land or onboard, your safety is one of the absolute and primary concerns of Ponant. As scientific advances are made, Ponant optimises its already robust protocol to guarantee an optimal experience by integrating all the technological, human and material measures to ensure the provision and maintenance of a hermetic "Anti COVID" sanitary bubble. This reinforced protection is based on three “shields” designed to guarantee drastic on-board access conditions, strict on-board sanitary protocols, daily control and monitoring of guests, equipment and ships.
Anti COVID zone access conditions
Every guest is checked and subject to the "Anti COVID" access protocol which consist of several steps:
Maintenance of the Anti COVID zone
All persons onboard (guests and crew members) are required to comply with the mandatory health protocol, and all their onboard spaces are regularly cleaned and treated to ensure total disinfection. To preserve and maintain this sanitary bubble, shore/land excursions will only take place in regions where the epidemic is under control.
Checking and monitoring of the Anti COVID zone
To ensure they can provide you with a Anti COVID zone throughout your voyage, Ponant have designed and developed a fully-fledged checking and monitoring system with respect to the health protection situation onboard their ships.
Ponant has released its Health Protocol Manifest to give their guests the ease of mind when booking with them. Over many years, the company has also invested in state of the art medical facilities on board its ships (ultrasound and radiography equipment, testing on site, resuscitation equipment, etc.) that go well beyond what current standards for tourism require. A medical team comprising at least one doctor and a nurse are available 24/7.
Furthermore, Ponant has also introduced a range of exceptionally flexible, STRESS-FREE booking and cancellation conditions that allow you to cancel or postpone your voyage without charge.
Their Ultra Serenity Police includes a Covid guarantee with the most comprehensive and appropriate guarantees, so that you have greater flexibility in booking and, if necessary, the option of postponing or cancelling your next trip.
