LE COMMANDANT CHARCOT is Ponant’s very first hybrid-electric polar exploration ship, powered by liquefied natural gas.
She is the latest addition to the Ponant fleet, and ferries up to 245 guests, 123 staterooms & suites, (each with a private balcony or terrace), a spa, and two restaurants.
Le Commandant Charcot also features a spacious conservatory, and common areas & public rooms which offer floor-to-ceiling windows, to allow passing scenery & surrounds to never remain too far from reach. She also possesses an almost one-to-one guest-to-crew member ratio.
Ponant recently celebrated the launch of Le Commandant Charcot in Le Havre, France and over the past month has been sharing some pictures as she gets ready for her inaugural Antarctic season.
