Le Champlain Cruises

Le Champlain set sail under the French flag in September 2018. 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.
