We have been Ponant customers for over 4 years now, but in 2023 Ponant appointed Bruised Passports as its first ever ambassadors in Asia. Given our love for the brand, this felt organic to us. And the first thing we wanted to do, as part of this, was get Bruised Passports readers deals that weren’t available anywhere else in the market. Read on below for how you can avail them


Ponant are world leaders in making their guests experience remote panoramas responsibly in ultimate luxury. Their Polar expeditions – to the North Pole and Antarctica – are legendary in the industry. And not just because of the polar bears or penguins you might see!

Think innovative and cutting-edge hybrid electric vessels, no single-use plastic, 5 course menus, 24X7 butler service, the finest of wines and cheeses on board, educational talks by researchers and scientists that work with Ponant to protect remote Polar regions and promote responsible tourism in the areas. It is a combination that is truly hard to beat in the industry. For lovers of warmer tropical adventures, Ponant have introduced several shorter voyages to South America, Australia, and French Polynesia too.
