Le Bellot Cruises

MS Le Bellot will be the 5th in a 6-ship series for Ponant Cruises Explorer-class yachts. She joins fleet mates and sisterships Le Laperouse (2018), Le Champlain (2018), Le Bougainville (2019), and Le Dumont-d'Urville (2019), with Le Jacques C artier also to appear in 2020. Named after famous French explorers, these sleek five-star luxury vessels will have the finest equipment for safety and stability.

The ships are designed to venture into Polar regions and remote ports that allow passage to small ships, with a shallow 4.6m draught. The ship’s cuisine will be emphatically French, offering menus in partnership with Ducasse Conseil, a company from famed chef Alain Ducasse.
