The Le Champlain is one of two new ships in 2018 and part of the Explorer ship series, Ponant
's newest step towards a more spectacular and refined Expedition experience.
As one of their Explorer ships, the Le Champlain features the most modern and revolutionary designs of their fleet yet, with new features such as the sun deck area with Infinity Pool outside the Main Lounge, and the three-form Marina designed for a variety of watersports and activities including easy Zodiac use, kayaking and paddle-boarding.
The Le Champlain also has a smaller number of just 92 staterooms onboard, with a larger number of suites, each one including its own private balcony ranging from 43 to 323 sq. ft. in size alone.
Le Champlain has two choices for dining onboard: the relaxed 70-guest dining area located on Deck 3 which serves grilled meats, salads, desserts and more; and the main panoramic restaurant, capable of seating all passengers at any time and opening to an outside area, features a buffet of salads, desserts and cheeses not available on other Ponant ships.
Situated on Deck 7, you're guaranteed unforgettable views whether you're pampered by the professional masseurs in the spa, enjoying a good workout in the state-of-the-art fitness room, or perhaps trying a new style in the hair salon.
Take advantage of the Le Champlain's innovative new feature, the three-form Marina. Transforming between three different layouts, the marina allows guests to experience a range of water sports and activities, as well as easier access to the Zodiac for expeditions.
If you choose to stay onboard, there is an Infinity Pool on the aft pool deck which is installed with a counter-current swimming system. You can also simply relax in the outdoor lounge or solarium also located on the pool deck.
