Le Commandant-Charcot: Visit Antarctica on a luxurious European vessel (launching Nov 2021)

Days: 13-26 | From: $18,770/per person

This superb mega-yacht with 135 cabins and suites was designed in France and built in Norway. The indoor swimming pool, the conservatory, the panoramic restaurant, the Blue Lagoon outdoor restaurant, the Main Lounge, the Observation Lounge, the lobby… Each of the common areas has been designed to both convey French-style discreet luxury and arouse wonder and amazement. The common thread running through all their designs is the desire to allow the light to penetrate and open everything up the extraordinary polar landscapes and scenery.
This very first hybrid-electric polar exploration ship powered by LNG has been designed with the greatest attention to detail in terms of safety and respect for the environment.
