Le Lapérouse

First ship in a new series that remains true to the Ponant spirit

Le Lapérouse launched in June 2018 as the first of Ponant's fleet of six luxury yachts arriving by the end of 202, offering a memorable and luxurious expedition cruise experience.

She features innovative and environmentally-friendly equipment, elegantly designed staterooms, spacious suites with large windows, lounge areas that open onto the outside, and the unique Blue Eye underwater lounge.

As the first ship in a new series that remains true to the Ponant spirit, Le Lapérouse embodies the line’s hallmark blend of refinement, intimacy and comfort. She boasts just 92 staterooms and suites.

The ICE class vessel, which carries a maximum 184 guests, can explore an ever-increasing range of destinations in an ethnic-chic ambiance with luxury service.
