Ponant - Le Commandant Charcot in Greenland
Ponant - Le Commandant Charcot - Helipad
Ponant - Le Commandant Charcot - Infinity pool

The world's first electric hybrid polar expedition ship, Le Commandant Charcot may be the most exciting addition yet to the Ponant fleet.

What we love

Jean-Baptiste Charcot was a true polar pioneer, and Ponant's icebreaker explores the parts of the Arctic and Antarctica that other expedition vessels can't reach. On board you can expect Ponant's customary French flair, and the ship is also designed to have a minimal effect on the environment, with technological innovations such as hybrid propulsion and an advanced waste water treatment system.

Capacity 245 Guests
Crew 187 Staff
Style This may be the world's most luxurious icebreaker, blending contemporary decor with a refined French flair.
