Port of call & excursions
The information below is current but subject to change at any time without advance notice from government authorities. Please consult your respective government agencies for visa and health information.
Passport valid for at least six (6) months beyond the completion of your trip. Passport must contain at least two completely clear, blank, unused visa pages for each visa required, not including any amendment pages. Visa pages with stains or ink from other pages in the passport are not usable. Guests who deviate from the scheduled embarkation or disembarkation port should research the foreign entry requirements for the port country. Due to government regulations, regrettably, Ponant will have to deny boarding to any guest who fails to obtain the appropriate travel documentation for this trip.
Warning about the use of drones: the use of drones aboard PONANT ships, whether they are sailing at sea, at a port of call or anchored, is strictly forbidden. The use of drones on land in the Arctic and Antarctic regions is also strictly forbidden by international polar regulations. In other regions, it may be possible to use drones on land if permission has been obtained from the relevant authorities of each country and each region travelled through, as well as a pilot’s licence that should be obtained from your home country. Passengers are responsible for obtaining these permits; they should be able to present them at all times. Passengers who do not obtain these authorisations expose themselves to the risk of legal proceedings.
Russia: A group visa will be supplied only for those guests participating in PONANT organized tours or private arrangements and will cover you for their duration only.
If you want to explore St. Petersburg independently, you will need to obtain a visa prior to departure and at your own additional expense.
Patrick de Carolis
Writer and journalist Patrick de Carolis is a member of the Institut de France (Académie des Beaux-Arts) and heads the Marmottan Monet Museum which houses the world’s first collection of works by Claude Monet and Berthe Morisot. Former Chairman of France Télévisions and creator of the French programmes Reporters, Nomades, Zone Interdite, Des Racines et des Ailes and Le Grand Tour, he received a lifetime achievement award for his work in TV at the Lauriers d’Or de la Télévision.
At the same time, Patrick de Carolis had responsibilities in the written media as Managing Director of Figaro Magazine from 2001 to 2004. Indeed, writing has played a key role in his career. After Conversation in 2001, a collection of interviews with Bernadette Chirac, he published Les Demoiselles de Provence in 2005; in 2009 a book of poems Refuge pour temps d’orage, brought to the theatre by Bérengère Dautun; in 2011, La dame du Palatin, a historic novel in which he brings to life the wife of Roman philosopher Seneca; and in November 2014 Letizia R. Bonaparte, la mère de toutes les douleurs in which he explores the extraordinary destiny of Napoleon’s mother. His latest work, Les ailes intérieures, is an essay on the world of television and its cultural role in society.
Passionate about live performance, Patrick de Carolis was the man behind Les Eclectiques de Rocamadour, a festival which from 2001 to 2010 brought great music, dance and theatre performers together every year.
