Compagnie du Ponant Announces Agent FAM Rates of Up to 50% Off



Compagnie du Ponant has announced special travel agent rates on select cruises – up to 50% off the regular rate.

Explore the Caribbean aboard the three-masted sailing vessel Le Ponant or South America on board either of the company’s newest 264-guest yachts, L’Austral or Le Boréal. Compagnie du Ponant relies on the agent market for sales and makes it a priority to educate agents on its upscale product line, knowing that it’s far easier for agents to sell a product if they have first-hand knowledge.

The FAMs allow agents to experience the intimacy, authenticity and elegance of Compagnie du Ponant. Select weeklong December cruises aboard the 64-guest Le Ponant are priced at an agent rate of $1,875 per person, double, including all port taxes and fees. Agents booking any of the 10 South American voyages of 11 to 46 days offered through April 2013 enjoy a 50% discount, with agent fares starting at $2,428. FAMs are subject to stateroom availability and agents are encouraged to book early as space is limited.

The luxury yachts of Compagnie du Ponant offer cruises to all seven continents, visiting many of the world’s most outstanding sites while treating guests to top-ranked service and gourmet cuisine. All meals, open bar, stocked mini-bars in all staterooms and suites, a welcome-aboard cocktail party, 24-hour room service, all entertainment as indicated within the itinerary, gratuities, port charges, and even taxes and fees are now included in the pricing. Le Soléal, the company’s third new yacht in four years, debuts in July 2013.
