Your travel book is evolving!

To pursue our commitment to more sustainable tourism, we have decided to lighten the environmental impact of the travel books sent before each trip with PONANT.

In concrete terms, what does it mean?

  • We have stopped producing the pouches that accompanied it
  • The travel book is printed on a 100% recycled paper, in A4 format, with a reduced number of pages, while retaining all the information needed to prepare for your trip.
  • For each travel book sent, PONANT makes a commitment to Reforest'Action and has a tree planted in one of its forest ecosystem restoration projects in France, Iceland and Indonesia:

IMPORTANT: this new format is available today for your departures aboard the PONANT Explorers and PONANT Sisterships.

What's in this new format sent by mail?

  • The booklet printed in A4 format for better readability
  • PONANT white paper labels for easy identification of your baggage at boarding
  • An accompanying letter

Does less pages mean less information?

No, all the useful information is there and personalised!

  • Your itinerary and full travel programme (equivalent to your cruise ticket)
  • Information on your cruise enrichment: the theme, the guests and the partner
  • A map of the ship and your stateroom, with details of the services available in the stateroom
  • Details of activities and extensions during the cruise, & pre-post programmes you have booked
  • Advice on what to wear and what to expect on board (available soon)
  • Your airline tickets, presented on detachable paper for the printed version
  • The pre-filled health declaration, presented on detachable paper for the printed version
  • Pre-filled baggage labels with your full names and stateroom number (digital version only): once printed, cut out and folded, they replace the white paper baggage labels received by mail.


  • You can choose whether or not to receive a paper version of the travel book
  • Be sure to specify whether you would like the paper or digital version to your travel consultants
  • Unless you specify otherwise, you will receive the paper version by default.

We are at your service to support you with this new travel book format.

The entire PONANT team would like to thank you for sharing the philosophy that has driven the company for more than 35 years
