Ponant opens Kimberley
PONANT has released its 2020 Kimberley season, with plans to bring back its new Explorer class ship Le Laperouse after its debut in the region next year.
The expedition operator’s latest Kimberley brochure is out now, featuring cruises from May to Aug 2020 aboard the newest ship to serve the region.
Itineraries provide an opportunity to explore the Kimberley’s landmarks by day including Zodiac expeditions

“Le Laperouse offers all the accoutrements of luxury travel and amenities - including an infinity-edge pool and sea view spa - however its compact size, with just 92 staterooms and suites, all with balconies, allows for the personalised style of service Ponant is known for,” said Ponant Vice President Asia Pacific Monique Ponfoort.
“Importantly, smaller size provides access to even more remote parts of the world where large ships simply cannot contemplate venturing.”
Launched in Jul, Le Laperouse will be positioned in Australian, Melanesian and New Zealand waters as part of its inaugural season in 2019 - with several voyages still available - before returning for 2020.
