Ponant sets sail for legendary locales throughout Europe, from the charming capitals of the Baltic States (Latvia's Riga, Estonia's Tallinn) to points both north (including St Petersburg) and south (the Mediterranean's Athens, Istanbul, Naples, and Venice). Depending on the itinerary you select, your Ponant Europe cruise may include a visit to Bergen, "Capital of the Fjords" (its brightly painted and gabled homes are Norwegian icons), vibrant Galway (where Ireland's most ancient traditions are still very much alive), Ibiza (world-famous for its sun-drenched beaches and its spirited nightlife), and/or Dubrovnik (a UNESCO World Heritage Site, magnificently restored and surrounded by medieval ramparts).
