Ponant returns to service in the Seychelles
PONANT kicked off cruise operations in the Seychelles as the first line to resume sailing.
Le Bellot began cruise last week departing from Mahe.
“After long months of waiting, we are more than prepared to resume our operations in the Seychelles. We’ve been taking guests to discover this paradise for almost 20 years. We are happy to be able to actively contribute to relaunching tourism,” said Hervé Bellaïche, Chief Sales, Marketing and Communications Officer at PONANT.
This first expedition cruise takes in eight islands from through 26 November.
During the 2021-2022 winter season, Le Bellot will be joined by Le Bougainville and Le Jacques-Cartier.
The Seychelles archipelago will be in the spotlight with five itineraries and 19 cruises from November through to April.
Sales for the 2022-2023 winter season are also open, with six itineraries and 18 cruises to choose from.
PONANT’s health protocols are based on an ‘Anti-Covid’ zone, creating a sealed health bubble based on the double protection principle.
Screening and decontamination measures when boarding are backed up by health protocols and barrier measures throughout the cruise.
For Expedition cruises, PONANT has further ramped up its protocol by requiring everyone on board to have a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to boarding and to be fully vaccinated (or have acquired immunity).
