Le Champlain Overview

Le Champlain set sail under the French flag in September 2018. Until September 2019 Le Champlain sails progressively from Iceland to Greenland, the St Lawrence seaway in Canada, the Great Lakes of the USA, then south to the Caribbean. A series of 8-night voyages from December 2019 to February 2020 focus on the Yucatan Peninsula, exploring vestiges of the Maya culture. In March Le Champlain visits islands in the east Caribbean, many with a French heritage. In April circle the Azores in the Atlantic just west of Africa. As 2020 progresses, Le Champlain returns to Iceland, Greenland and the St Lawrence. Through many of these voyages it is interesting to trace the influence of French explorers and history, alongside the (sub-)Arctic regions for which Le Champlain was built. All these voyages explore the cultures and environments of the ports visited. Appropriately, the famed 16th C mariner and Canadian explorer Samuel de Champlain gives his name to this vessel.


All cabins have private balconies, air conditioning, two twins that can be pushed together to form a king-sized bed, shower, complimentary mini-bar, flat-screen TV with satellite TV and video on demand, a desk with stationery, iPod, safe, hair dryer, bathrobes and fine French bath products. Staterooms will be brand new, reflecting contemporary French design. Seventy-nine of the staterooms are for two guests, at 19 sq.m. with 4 sq.m. balcony and shower. Five De Luxe Suites for up to 3 guests are larger at 27 sq.m. Four Privilege Suites are larger again at 32 sq.m. and cater for four guests.

Food and Dining

The interior dining area is located on Deck 3, and seats 70. Here you will savour French gastronomy, serving grilled meats daily, along with a variety of salads and desserts. At the aft of Deck 4 you will find a 260 sq.m. panoramic restaurant that can accommodate all 184 guests in one sitting. Designed differently to that on the other Ponant ships, this dining area, which opens to an al fresco area, will offer a buffet of salads, desserts and cheeses. The attentive crew will provide à la carte service for hot meals.


The main theatre seats 188, comes equipped with the latest sound and lighting technology, and an LED wall as the stage backdrop for the projection of high-resolution images and videos. Presentations by naturalists, lecturers, experienced guides and specialists are delivered in the large main lounge. All cabins have direct access to On-Demand Videos. There’s a unique Blue Eye underwater lounge, with three underwater cameras that project screen images, as well as two underwater portholes that let you view directly what’s there beneath the water line – porpoises, whales . . ? As you recline and view life underwater, listen also to the subaquatic sounds pickup up by aquaphone.
