Join us aboard Le Dumont-d’Urville for an exceptional PONANT cruise sailing from Fort-de-France to Colon. This 10-day itinerary will give you the opportunity to appreciate the richness of Afro-Caribbean cultures, an azure blue sky and white-sand beaches.

Leaving from Martinique, you will head in the direction of the beautiful island of Saint Lucia. Close to the Soufriere volcano, you will be enchanted by the two emblematic rocky pitons, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which form the backdrop to the island.

After calling at Grenada, Le Dumont-d’Urville will head for the idyllic Los Roques archipelago. This small paradise in the Venezuelan Caribbean has been declared a national park and is an ideal spot to dive and snorkel in a turquoise lagoon with stunning sea beds.

The cities of Willemstad on the island of Curaçao and Cartagena de Indias in Colombia are both heavily influenced by their colonial past and offer a number of interesting sights and landmarks.

Finally, succumb to the charms of the clear waters of Panama and the San Blas archipelago, composed of more than 300 islands and cays. Here, surrounded by palm trees and dugout canoes, you will discover the island of Holandes Cay, where the Kuna people live.
