Le Dumont-Durville Overview

Le Dumont D'Urville sets sail under the French flag in the Summer of 2019. In August 2019 she begins a series of 7- to 12-night cruises that include: the Baltic Sea and three days in St Petersburg; museums with an art theme from Copenhagen to France; the Western British Isles; Iberian shores; the Canary and Cape Verde islands down to Senegal in Africa; and Zodiac adventures in the Bijagos Archipelago off the coast of Guinea-Bissau. All these voyages explore the cultures and environments of the ports visited. Jules Dumont d'Urville was a remarkable French polymath, explorer, naval officer and rear admiral, who explored the south and western Pacific, Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica. (He was also promoted for obtaining Venus de Milo for the Louvre in Paris.)

Accommodation

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 savor 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.

Entertainment

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 . . ?
