Gohagan & Company is proud to provide the most deluxe, exclusively chartered ships in educational travel—the ideal way to experience the unforgettable destinations in our specially designed itineraries. Chartered cruising provides the optimum setting for affinity groups; with no offering to the general public, there is control over the entire ship. Enjoy the luxury of intimate, designated spaces for your association’s private engagements in addition to enlightening lecturers and complimentary alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages. The next exclusively chartered, deluxe voyage awaits your choosing.

Luxury Small Ships, Innovative Design

Le Jacques Cartier, launching in 2020, ushers in a new generation of five-star small ships, combining revolutionary design and a new standard of luxury for unparalleled cruising. Dock in smaller ports inaccessible to larger ships, where authentic cultural experiences and majestic scenery await you.

Blue Eye the World’s First Luxury Underwater Observatory

View the beauty of marine life through the large, subaquatic windows and integrated digital screens providing live images from underwater cameras, and enjoy the sensory experience of listening to the ocean’s unique underwater universe in the comfort of the exclusive Blue Eye lounge. (Marine life viewing varies by location)

Respect for the Environment

A new addition to the Ponant “Clean Ship” fleet,
an important distinction among ocean-cruising vessels, Le Jacques Cartier is energy efficient and eco-friendly, protecting fragile marine ecosystems.
