The first is scheduled to arrive in 2018.
Ponant, a popular French expedition cruise line, announced last month that it would be adding four identical ships to its fleet, but it wasn’t until recently that details regarding the design and amenities of each were revealed. Navin Sawhney, Ponant's CEO for the Americas, told Travel Weekly earlier this week that each ship will come equipped with an underwater lounge—a bar area with large windows below the ship’s surface. Guests will be able to order drinks and enjoy the view of fish and other marine life that may be swimming past the vessel.
Other ship highlights include an infinity pool, a launch deck for water sports, scuba facilities, and a sundeck. Additionally, each of the 92 staterooms will have private balconies—which are sure to have great views as well.
