  3. Le Laperouse
We first saw Le Lapérouse from above, in port, next to a massive Costa ship - the contrast couldn't have been greater! If you like all the benefits of a small, well-run, brand new ship and enjoy French food and style, then this is definitely for you. Everything was impeccable - the warm welcome, the incredible ease of embarkation, the super-excellent service, the delicious and very imaginative French food, the pool area (with its glass wall - you can watch the horizon from the pool) the delightful public areas and a back deck that drops down to sea level for trips out on Zodiacs / RIBs - perfect for the kind of adventures you would never get on a bigger ship. We swam in the middle of the Indian Ocean, we snorkelled around an idyllic island in the Maldives that we had to ourselves - a truly unforgettable trip. Highly recommended, but not really suitable for children.

The nearest I'll get to sailing on my own private yacht!

Cabin Review

Cabin 417
Brilliantly designed modern cabin. With various crucial things "right!" There's a separate loo, the shower room has a big shower, and a glass wall (that can be "closed" at night with a sliding door) as well as generous hanging space, drawers, cupboards and a very practical balcony.
