If you want to discover some of the world's most remote corners onboard a ship that's more akin to a luxury yacht than a cruise ship, look no further than Le Champlain. Cosy and intimate, this impressive ship takes French elegance and class to the seas, offering the best in fascinating shore excursions, cuisine and relaxing onboard moments. Taking you to bucket-list destinations across the Caribbean, Iceland and North America, guests can expect fine dining, sophisticated entertainment and attentive service from the first until the last moment of your cruise.
As an important aspect of French culture, it's no surprise that during your time on Le Champlain you'll be treated to gourmet delights from morning until evening. The main restaurant on this ship is Le Nautilus where guests can dine at breakfast, lunch and dinner in a spacious setting with panoramic views across the ocean. Alternatively, if you're looking for something a little more intimate, the smaller Grill Restaurant is situated on deck, meaning that you can enjoy your perfectly grilled meats and freshly prepared salads and desserts as you breathe in the refreshing sea air.
Evenings on Le Champlain are taken seriously, which is why you can enjoy a range of live entertainment. Ranging from dance shows and productions to live music, the Main Lounge and theatre are the places to go once dinner is over and night has fallen. However, if you'd rather enjoy a more laid back evening, the Blue Eye lounge is a popular Ponant bar where you can sip on your favourite drink as you watch the marine life passing by through the portholes.
A cruise holiday isn't just about the time you spend on shore excursions - it's also about the onboard experience. For those who like to stay active, the gym and watersports marina are the perfect places to get in a workout or dive into the inviting ocean while you try your hand at paddle boarding or kayaking. However, relaxing is also an important part of any holiday, so if you want to enjoy a laid back few hours of pampering, head to the spa and beauty salon. Alternatively, the onboard library and lounges offer the perfect spots for some time to yourself.
