    Le Champlain, the second ship in the PONANT EXPLORERS series, left the Sovik shipyard in Norway on 27 September to take to the sea and start operating. A moment of intense emotion for the company, which is welcoming a seventh ship into its fleet. The ship is sailing to Northern Europe then the Mediterranean, before charting a course for Latin America and the Caribbean . This new flagship combines a smaller capacity (just 92 staterooms and suites, all with a balcony or private terrace), sleek exterior lines, refined interior design, state-of-the-art technology and respect for the environment. It is also fitted with an underwater multi-sensory lounge, the Blue Eye, which allows passengers to discover and experience the underwater world through two portholes in the form of a cetaceous eye, looking out onto the sea bed, non-intrusive underwater spotlights, hydrophones built into the keel that capture the natural symphony of the sea, and Body Listening sofas that offer a unique sensory accompaniment by vibrating in unison with the sounds.
