#expeditioncruising .

Brochure just released

2019 is the inaugural Kimberley season for the first of six new Explorer class ships currently under construction for PONANT, and the attraction of visiting this pristine wilderness onboard the most eco-sensitive of vessels in the region is an attractive proposition.

Launched in July 2018, Le Laperouse will be positioned in Australian, Melanesian and New Zealand waters as part of its inaugural season of voyages in 2019, returning again in 2020.

Complete details of 2020 voyages, options, dates and pricing now available in a new Kimberley brochure just released: http://fr.calameo.com/read/00013242371a50cf540c3

“This provides Australians and New Zealanders with the opportunity to sail on one of the world’s newest ships featuring the very latest in maritime technology, safety and environmental sensitivity .…. Important considerations for voyages in remote areas such as the Kimberley” says Monique Ponfoort, Vice President PONANT Asia Pacific.

“Le Laperouse offers all the accoutrements of luxury travel and amenities - including an infinity-edge pool and sea view spa - however its compact size, with just 92 staterooms and suites, all with balconies allows for the personalised style of service PONANT is known for. Importantly, smaller size provides access to even more remote parts of the world where large ships simply cannot contemplate venturing.”

With 30 years of expedition voyage experience PONANT’s purpose-built luxury expedition ships bring the same high operational standards to the Kimberley that they operate in the Arctic and Antarctica – the only ships to do so and reflective of PONANT’s position as the world leader in luxury expeditions.

“Our top-tier expedition team, a key element in getting the most out of any Kimberley trip, is headed by experienced adventurer and award-winning wildlife photographer Mick Fogg. A 20 year veteran of over 300 expeditions he ranks the Kimberley in his top three remote area destinations”.

Le Laperouse in the Kimberley is the perfect introduction to small ship luxury expedition cruising. Adventure by day exploring all the famous Kimberley highlights along the coast including Zodiac trips with the Expedition Team up rivers and under waterfalls, then enjoy champagne and fine cuisine by night.
