Therefore, when choosing the luxury Mediterranean cruise to travel with, we must ensure it is able to confidently provide all this and more besides. Pontant have been cruising across the globe for over 30 years and are currently the number one high-end polar cruise operator.
Their low capacity boats means that we are quickly able to find our way around the ships without getting lost, walking long distances only to find we went the wrong way and are meant to be on the other end of the ship! The compactness provides a cosy and more decadent atmosphere. We are able to become familiar with our fellow cruisers and enjoy the company and comradery that enhances one’s travel experience.
The compact cruise ships allows us enjoy unique ports of call with luxury small cruise ships, as we are able to travel to popular ports as well as lesser known, hidden away locations that larger capacity ships are not able to get to. This gives us the additional luxury of exploring places many other travellers have not had the opportunity to experience.
Some sophisticated cruisers may debate as to which destination constitutes the perfect cruise, however, according to general consensus, the Mediterranean is the world’s leading travel destination.
The beautiful bright days and the mild-climate the area provides, means that we will enjoy constant comfortable temperatures. We can wear both our teeny tiny bikinis and evening gowns (at the appropriate times, of course) without the fear of freezing or sweltering!
