The New Le Commandant Charcot—Up Close to the Far Away

Introducing Le Commandant Charcot, the very first hybrid-electric polar exploration ship powered by LNG, navigating through the sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctica from the Geographic North Pole to the colossal Larsen Ice Shelf. A ship so quiet that the people whispering on deck are the loudest sound you’ll hear. Any voice will have to be hushed as to not disturb the polar bear. After a day exploring the ice, whether you’ve taken the polar plunge, snowshoed, kayaked, or hiked these otherworldly landscapes, return to relax and wade in the ship’s Blue Lagoon heated pool while you enjoy passing vistas of ice floe and towering icebergs.
