The world leader in luxury expeditions and only French cruise company, PONANT, is delighted to announce its partnership on the British Library major new exhibition James Cook: The Voyages marking 250 years since James Cook’s ship Endeavourfirst set sail from Plymouth.
The exhibition will feature stunning artworks, original maps and handwritten journals, from iconic depictions of people and landscapes by expedition artists and local dignitaries.
This comes at a time when PONANT is launching a new class of ships, The PONANT EXPLORERS. The small luxury expedition vessels are specially designed to bring passengers where others do not go. Each of them will feature the world’s first multi-sensory underwater lounge, the Blue Eye. PONANT has just announced the order of two more ships in the EXPLORERS series bringing the number of new ships being launched between 2018 and 2020 to six.
Jean Emmanuel Sauvée, co-founder and CEO of PONANT says: “We are proud and pleased to support James Cook: The Voyages exhibition at the British Library. As the world’s leader in luxury cruise expeditions for the last 30 years, this partnership is very much aligned with our own philosophy of going where others do not go, emulating the great explorers of history. We hope that visitors to the exhibition will be inspired and encouraged to travel the same waters as James Cook and discover these exceptional destinations with their own eyes.”
