New Australian Ponant Expedition Cruises in 2021

Choose from two incredibly unique itineraries showcasing Australia’s rugged, wild and magnificent coastline with Ponant.

Join the breathtaking 13-day expedition cruise from Melbourne to Fremantle or the spectacular 10-day expedition cruise from Fremantle to Broome sailing aboard the new ‘Le Bellot’. Or perhaps do both?

Each itinerary aims to bring you closer to Australia’s vast landscapes, pristine beaches and remarkable marine life.

Sail aboard the new Le Bellot, a ship with just 92 cabins. Enjoy all the traditional Ponant features and benefits including an outstanding modern ship, a range of facilities including a swimming pool, spa, choice of restaurants and open bar. Your journey includes regular outings and shore expeditions via easy to access Zodiacs® and a highly qualified expedition team of geologists, historians, cultural experts, marine biologists, naturalists and conservationists.

Whichever expedition you choose, you will experience the exceptional levels of comfort and service that are the very hallmark of Ponant.
