Ponant has announced that it will call in Cuba in 2017, with sailings targeted at American passengers.

The French line will offer "People-to-People Cultural Exchange" cruises in 2017 to Cuba with seven- and eight-night itineraries offered on the 64-passenger sail-ship Le Ponant.

“Enjoying thoughtfully-curated programs and engaging with locals have always been the essence of the Ponant cultural experience," noted Navin Sawhney, Chief Executive Officer, Americas. "Ponant has been introducing Europeans to Cuba in the past and we are now delighted to offer Americans this enriching opportunity from a most comfortable setting aboard a cruise on Le Ponant.”  

More information will be available from the company shortly.
