PONANT & Smithsonian Journeys bring enriched voyages to inspiring shores in the company of Smithsonian Journeys Experts. Invite your clients to sail to Australia’s Kimberley to witness a solar eclipse. They can immerse themselves in fiesta and flamenco as they sail the Spanish coast, paying visits to the Alcazar, Alhambra, and a traditional bull breeding farm. Or soak up the sun and the merry sounds of live steel drums while our Ducasse-trained chefs prepare a regional barbecue lunch during a stopover on a private Caribbean beach. Traveling closer to home does not mean sacrificing experience, however, as they will also be joined by Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart for a musical celebration along the St. Lawrence Seaway.
Make sure your clients don't miss PONANT and Smithsonian Journeys’ solar eclipse cruise in April 2023. In the Timor Sea we will take up a position in the path of totality. The eclipse will last for more than three hours from late morning to early afternoon on April 20, with an approximate period of totality of just over one minute.
