Set sail on an incredible journey from the Seychelles to Madagascar and Mauritius, encountering breathtaking natural landscapes and unique wildlife along the way. On board one of Ponant’s luxury Explorer cruise ships, you’ll have ten days to explore this untouched paradise, discovering beautiful beaches and awe-inspiring coral reefs among countless other wondrous attractions.

From the far-flung shores of the Seychelles, your adventure will begin with a luxury pre-cruise stay. Then, as you set sail, you’ll be introduced to the indigenous flora and fauna of each magical island you visit. Experience a treasure trove of natural beauty at every stop, including the gorgeous beach of La Digue, snorkelling in crystalline waters and finding yourself face-to-face with rainforest critters.

On board Ponant’s Le Dumont-d'Urville, you’ll combine the adventure of visiting remote ports with the comfort and privacy of an intimate ship. Some of the luxuries include a SOTHYS™ spa, underwater lounge, hydraulic swimming and bathing platform, pool deck and 188-capacity theatre. To cap it all off, enjoy unforgettable views from your stateroom’s very own private balcony.

Combined with stays at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles in the Seychelles and LUX* Belle Mare in Mauritius, this journey is spectacular. Speak to our Travel Specialists to tailor it to your own wishes.
