  3. Le Laperouse
We chose these cruises for the expeditions and ability of the vessel to get into small ports and also to change course to find unexpected delights. We also love French food! The expedition leaders were wonderful as were their lectures each evening on the following day's adventures. All the crew went out of their way to make sure those of us who were less able-bodied were included in as many excursions as physically possible. There was always help with getting in and out of the Zodiacs, etc. We would certainly go on another of these expedition cruises and look forward to the National Geographic connection with Ponant. It was delightful for us to be able to practice our foreign language skills again on this multi-lingual vessel. Captain Fabien Roche was a brilliant commander - very easy to engage with. We made many new friends on both of our back-to-back cruises and hope to see them again on future cruises.

Amazing expedition to the Kimberley Coast and on to Bali

Cabin Review

Cabin 601 & 523
Compact but beautifully designed. Loads of storage space. Lovely bathroom space and, hurrah, a separate WC. Bed was very comfortable.
