    PONANT invites you on an all-new 9-day cruise between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, departing from Dubai. Come aboard Le Jacques-Cartier, and set off to discover the treasures of the desert of the Arabian Peninsula.

    From fascinating and futuristic Dubai, your ship will take you towards Abu Dhabi, the booming capital of the United Arab Emirates. You will be able to make the most of this day to visit the fantastic new Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum and the Grand Mosque, one of the largest in the world. 

    You will then stop off at the nature reserve of the island of Sir Bani Yas, a veritable wildlife sanctuary, before setting sail for Doha in Qatar. In this city blending tradition and modernity, next to the most recent skyscrapers, you will discover a superb museum home to treasures of Islamic art, and the sparkling colours of the Waqif souk which brings the heart of the old town to life.

    Le Jacques-Cartier will then drop anchor in Khasab, the gateway to the sublime “fjords of Arabia” that you will be able to explore aboard a traditional boat, before arriving in the Gulf of Oman.

    In the charming port of Sour, on the far south of the peninsula, you will discover maritime traditions that date back a thousand years. Today, they still build dhows there. These are the typical boats that were used to transport goods on the spice route.

    At the end of your cruise, do not miss out on visiting Muscat, your final port, and its Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, which is like a palace from the Arabian Nights.

    Embarkation 27/11/2020 from 16H00 to 17H00 . Departure 27/11/2020 at 00H00 .

    Vertiginous, excessive, immoderate… Dubai, the largest city in the United Arab Emirates, stands out for its architectural follies. Home to the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Kahlifa, with a total height of 828 metres, almost three times that of the Eiffel Tower, the city is also famous for the gigantic scale of the Palm Islands, its artificial islands in the form of a palm tree. You can explore more traditional districts not far away, with visits of the souks of Deira or the Gold Souk. Or perhaps you would prefer to discover Dubai Museum: located in an 18th-century fort, it tells the city’s history from Antiquity to the present day.

    29 November 2020 – Abu Dhabi

    Arrival 29/11/2020 early morning. Departure 29/11/2020 evening.

    The political capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi stands out thanks to its exceptional cultural offering. In the Saadiyat Island district, the Louvre Abu Dhabi, designed by Jean Nouvel as a museum town inspired by traditional Arab architecture, creates a dialogue between objects and works from civilisations from all over the world around the great universal questions. A little further, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque boasts a sumptuous decor of marble, gold and glass. Abu Dhabi is also the gateway to the Al Ain oasis and its 150,000 date palms, a remarkable testimony to the settling of nomads in the region since Neolithic times, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    30 November 2020 – Sir Bani Yas

    30 November 2020 – Sir Bani Yas

    Arrival 30/11/2020 mid morning. Departure 30/11/2020 late afternoon.

    You’ll make a port of call on the island of Sir Bani Yas, a real naturalist dream that has been dedicated to the conservation of endangered animal species since 1971. This enchanting former reserve of the Emir of Abu Dhabi is planted with more than two million trees. Nominated “The World’s Leading Sustainable Tourist Destination”, it has one the largest populations of Arabian oryxes. The ruins of one of the oldest Christian monasteries of the pre-Islamic era, dating back to 600 AD, are visible there.

    1 December 2020▸2 December 2020 – Doha

    Arrival 01/12/2020 at night. Departure 02/12/2020 early morning.

    On the banks of the Persian Gulf, discover Doha, the capital of Qatar. Rising out of the desert, the city has managed to maintain its traditions in spite of a frantic race for modernity. The cliff bordering Doha Bay has magnificent views over the city centre’s enormous constructions. The silhouette of the Museum of Islamic Art rises up near the quays, where the region’s typical sailboats, known as dhows, are docked. This “fortress”, designed by Ming Pei, the architect of the Louvre pyramid, is home to the finest collections of Islamic art in the world. Not far, the lively district of Souq Waqif and its colourful stalls are also an unmissable visit.

    5 December 2020▸4 December 2020 – Muscat

    Muscat

    Disembarkation 05/12/2020 at 08H00 .

    Unlike neighbouring metropolises, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman has chosen to ban towers and skyscrapers and to cultivate the peninsula’s traditional and refined architectural style: low houses, domes, moucharaby windows, and wooden balconies. This authenticity adds to the charm of this small former maritime city protected by mountains and the forts constructed by the Portuguese in the 16th century. There is no doubt that you will fall under the charm of the treasures of Omani craftsmanship: the souk in the old district of Mutrah is a perfect example of this, as is the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, reputed to have the world’s largest hand-made carpets.

    Guillaume Bellom

    Guillaume Bellom has had one of the most atypical careers of his generation, studying violin at the same time as piano from the Besançon Conservatoire to the CNSM in Paris. It was his contact with prominent personalities in the music world such as Nicholas Angelich and Hortense Cartier-Bresson that he went on to fully develop his activities as a pianist.

    Finalist and Modern Times prize for “Best Interpretation of a Contemporary Piece” at the Clara Haskil competition in 2015, his talent came to light at this event dedicated to the Romanian pianist, also a violinist in her spare time. The same year, he won first prize at the International Épinal Competition and became a laureate of the L’Or du Rhin Foundation, before winning the Thierry Scherz prize at the Sommets Musicaux in Gstaad the following year. The public discovered him at the 2017 Victoires de la Musique, where he was nominated in the “Instrumental Soloist Revelation” category. He has also been associated with the Singer-Polignac Foundation since 2018.
