Le Commandant Charcot

Join us aboard the world's first luxury polar exploration vessel. Le Commandant Charcot combines hybrid propulsion with liquefied natural gas (LNG) and electric generators.
Le Commandant Charcot has been designed to minimise the environmental impact of travel in the furthest latitudes.

A gentle and respectful exploration

Glide on the clear waters or between the ice floes and get as close as possible to the immaculate nature of the poles.

An enriching scientific adventure

Exceptional suites and staterooms

On board, there are 123 suites and staterooms, ranging in size from 20 to 115 m², and providing a warm, modern design that looks out onto the outside world. Each has a private balcony or terrace.

Soothing Moments

After a relaxing bath in the lagoon heated (by an energy recuperation system), settle down comfortably by the brazier and enjoy the delights of the polar landscapes while savouring one of the refined dishes from the bar's à la carte menu.

Relaxing times

After a moment of relaxation at the spa or the sauna, enjoy the beneficial effects of ice in the Snow Room. This unique space offers a real sensory journey.

Culinary discoveries

In the kitchen, the iconic Signature dishes of Alain Ducasse complete a menu specially designed by the Michelin-starred chef for Le Commandant Charcot. Fine gastronomy, a bistro-style menu and finger food can be enjoyed in the various restaurants and bars of the ship.
