Po­nant opens Kim­ber­ley

Cruise Weekly - - News -

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

( pic­tured) up the rivers to its fa­mous wa­ter­falls, then re­turn to the ship to en­joy cham­pagne and fine cuisine by night.

“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.
