2019 is due to be the inaugural season for one of the 4 new Explorer class vessels currently under construction for Ponant.
Planned to launch in mid 2018, Le Laperouse will be positioned in Melanesian, Australian and New Zealand waters as part of her inaugural season of cruises in 2019.
Le Laperouse in Kimberley will be the best introduction to small ship luxury expedition cruising. Passengers will be able to explore all popular Kimberley highlights along the coast, take part in Zodiac trips with the Expedition Team under waterfalls and up rivers, then enjoy fine cuisine and champagne by night.
Nine 10-night expedition cruises from May through August 2019 include the highlights plus some lesser-known destinations along the remarkable 13,000 kilometre coastline.
