Ponant Cruises Minimum Age Policy


Children under 3 years of age are not authorized to sail.

In all cases, children and young adults, once on board, are the entire and total responsibility of their parents or guardians.

Children from 8 to 11 years old sharing with 2 adults are free on a cruise-only basis and Teenagers from 12 to 17 years old, sharing a Superior Cabin and a Prestige Suite with 1 or 2 adults benefit from a 50% discount on cruise-only fares: other special discounts may apply.
