#expeditioncruising .

Le Commandant Charcot, PONANT’s first LNG-powered hybrid electric luxury polar exploration vessel, reached the geographic North Pole yesterday evening at 6:38pm (AEST). Captain Etienne Garcia was at the helm, with Captain Marchesseau at his side. This is the very first French ship to reach the North Pole (90,00,000°).

“I am hugely proud to have been at the helm of the very first French ship to reach the geographic North Pole, it is the ultimate achievement of a collective adventure started by PONANT many years ago. I am very grateful to the crew and all the staff on board that have contributed to making this possible” said Captain Etienne Garcia.
