Exciting new explorer ship with underwater observation lounge joining Ponant fleet

Ponant is coming out with a brand new explorer class ship this month, the Le Laperouse.  

Ponant is a small ship luxury cruise line with a French touch.  They offer cultural and relaxation cruises all over the world, including expedition sailings to some of the most remote locations including the Arctic & Antarctic.

The Le Laperouse is the first of 6 Explorer Class expedition ships that Ponant will be introducing to it’s fleet.  Named after French explorer Jean-Francois de La Perouse, Ponant is the only cruise line that flies the French flag.  

The ship is able to sail to the Polar Regions as well as all over the world.  The le laperouse gets you to places that larger ships cannot.

Expedition sailings don’t just mean the polar regions.  You’ll be able to take an expedition type cruise through tropical regions as well.  And you’ll see it in a totally different way.

Sailing on the Le Laperouse is like sailing on your own “private yacht” with only 92 staterooms.  All with private balconies. Rooms range from 205 sq ft for the Deluxe Staterooms to 485 sq ft. for the Owners Suite.

There are 2 restaurants on board featuring French-inspired cuisine.  Ponant has partnered with world-renowned superchef Alain Ducasse to add liveliness to its culinary offerings.

Prepare for spectacular service as there are 110 crew members on each sailing.

The interior of the ship is elegant in design with many areas that open to the outdoors.

Certified “clean ship” with zero impact wastewater treatment, and low emission engines.

A unique feature of the ship is a multi-sensorial underwater lounge called the Blue Eye.  Located beneath the water line, here you’ll be able to lounge while seeing and hearing the passing marine life.  This is a world’s first and it looks totally amazing!

There’s an infinity pool at the back of the ship with a multi use Modulable marina which can be used for sunbathing, a water sports platform, or other uses.

This is 5 star luxury expedition sailing to all corners of the world.
