Why we like it

  • Le Commandant Charcot is the first luxury hybrid electric polar exploration ship powered by liquified natural gas - the epitome of a more responsible and sustainable sailing
  • On-board spaces have been designed by world-renowned French architectural firms: the Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel and Wilmotte & Associés, whose brief was to create a connection with the passing landscapes
  • Nuna, the gastronomic restaurant offers refined French cuisine and can seat all the ship's passengers at a single sitting
  • Enjoy more informal dining at Sila which serves breakfast, buffet lunches and hosts themed dinners  
  • Watch the world go by from the staterooms and suites which all have a glazed private balcony
  • Our top tip: relax after a day of adventure in the balmy waters of the on-board Blue Lagoon heated to between 27°C and 37°C by the ship's energy recuperation system.

Cruise the icy polar waters in style on board Le Commandant Charcot. The icebreaker ship has been expertly designed and is one of the most advanced vessels at sea today.

You can literally watch the world go by through your pair of Swarovski binoculars from the luxurious 123 suites and staterooms complete with private balcony. Champagne served in Riedel crystal glasses can be enjoyed after boarding. Refined touches include a balneo bathtub and for those staying in the Owner’s Suite you have a butler service and outdoor lounge with Jacuzzi.

Safe and low impact navigation is Le Commandant Charcot’s area of expertise, taking advantage of the latest innovations while the on-board spaces have been designed by two world-renowned French architectural firms offering luxury while at sea.

After a day of adventure, dine at Nuna, the gastronomic restaurant at the rear of deck five, which can seat all the ship's passengers at a single sitting for an à la carte menu. A more relaxed dining atmosphere can be found at Sila which serves themed dinners.

This cutting-edge vessel also boasts a spa with the Blue Lagoon pool sustainably heated by the ship's energy recuperation system. Le Commandant Charcot is fully in keeping with the PONANT philosophy: to provide a rare and exceptional ambiance for every passenger and reinforce the feeling and sense of sailing on a private yacht.
