Description

The second unit of the new generation of Ponant ships, Le Champlain, doesn’t betray the values of the company: the “Nordic” elegance of the rooms, the refined furnishings, and the attentive service. Le Champlain offers a beautiful pool suspended above the sea, a Spa with a sea view sauna, a series of inflatable boats on the highest deck that will be lowered into the sea to discover the most beautiful and interesting destinations. From the French inspired cuisine, to the service, to the luxury suites, Le Champlain offers all the right ingredients for an inviting cruise with great attention paid to the client and to destinations that few ships in the world can offer.

Le luxe avec Ponant en Europe du Nord

I liked

Comment

Ma croisière de 9 jours à bord du Le Champlain de Ponant a été vraiment magnifique, c'est une compagnie de croisière de luxe qui m'a vraiment plu. Le navire est bien entretenu et bien conçu. L'ambiance est très familiale grâce au petit nombre de passagers, et les espaces communs ne sont jamais surpeuplés. La qualité de la nourriture était excellente avec un service impeccable ! Étant une compagnie de croisière française, toutes les annonces sont faites d'abord en français puis en anglais. Le choix des excursions était varié et les guides étaient tous bien informés et parlaient couramment l'anglais, ce qui permet aux invités non-français d'obtenir les bonnes informations. Les spectacles du soir étaient fantastiques. Certains étaient en français et d'autres en anglais, et essentiellement musicaux. Les danseurs étaient vraiment talentueux. Je réserverai probablement une autre croisière avec Ponant à l'avenir.

My first experience with Ponant. I wanted to try this new ship on a route from Spain to the Canaries. What can I say, excellent service, beautiful ship, really a great cruise company. I recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy intimacy, privacy and a family environment.
