Setting sail from Punta Arenas

The weather-beaten city of Punta Arenas is a laid back and welcoming place, in spite of its inhospitable location on the shores of the Strait of Magellan. Nearby attractions include penguin colonies and the dramatic scenery of Torres del Paine National Park, while beyond the southern horizon lie the frozen wastes of Antarctica.

Ponant - Le Commandant Charcot - Infinity pool

The world's first electric hybrid polar expedition ship, Le Commandant Charcot promises to 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 will explore 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 270 Guests
Crew 187 Staff
Style This will be the world's most luxurious icebreaker, blending contemporary decor with a refined French flair.
