Ponant’s Music Cruises

The creation of a cruise ship itinerary around a particular theme, be it golf, bridge, music, gastronomy, wine, history or wildlife, etc. is quite common across many cruise lines, with varying degrees of intensity or focus. Nevertheless, there are few cruise lines that offer cruises entirely devoted to classical music; Hapag-Lloyd and Ponant are the exceptions to this general rule.
