Cruise Weekly - - NEWS -

PONANT has changed the name of one of its four Ex­plor­ers sis­ter ships from Le Ker­gue­len to Le Du­mont d ’Urville.

The new ves­sels will be fit­ted with “a multi-sen­so­rial un­der­wa­ter lounge”, which the line has promised to be “an ex­clu­sive de­sign & a world first”.

The first two ships are un­der con­struc­tion, with the first block be­ing laid for Le Lap­er­ouse and the first sheet of steel cut for an­other, Le Cham­plain.
