    In partnership with Figaro Golf.

    Le Figaro and PONANT invite you to combine the pleasures of sailing and teeing off during an all-new 10-day cruise to the heart of the Caribbean.

    For this first “Golf and Pro-Am in the Caribbean” edition, you will set sail aboard Le Champlain to discover a series of carefully chosen courses that will take you from Martinique to Panama

    As part of this exceptional cruise, 2 additional play options are available in the « Pre/post & overlands » tab:

    • The option “Competition Pro-Am” with 5 rounds
    • The option “Leisure” including 5 golf courses and 2 optional tournaments

    The most experienced among you will be able to participate in the Pro-Am tournament, a programme with five rounds, in the company of professional players led by the French golf legend Bernard Pascassio.

    Less experienced golfers have not been forgotten: they will have the possibility of practising their swing freely on the same courses as the Pro-Am teams, by the sea, while enjoying breathtaking panoramas.

    Aside from giving you the opportunity to enjoy your passion in exceptional settings, this cruise will allow you to discover some of the most beautiful spots in the Caribbean: Bridgetown and its colonial architecture, Canouan and its stunning coral reef, Willemstad and its historic centre listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Some activities can be proposed to all accompanying non-golfers, depending on the possibilities offered by each port of call.

    Before disembarking in Colon, do not miss the chance to visit Cartagena, a Colombian city listed with UNESCO and brimming with history. Its fortresses date back to the time of the conquistadors.
