Sophisticated styling, innovative “green” technology, and welcoming, attentive service are all hallmarks of Le Lapérouse, the first of Ponant's new limited-capacity Explorer Class yachts (boasting 92 staterooms and suites), debuting for Tauck in 2018. Like her sister ships Le Champlain and Le Dumont d'Urville, Le Lapérouse is a luxe mega-yacht featuring six passenger decks, a choice of two dining venues and all-included bar and restaurant beverages throughout the day aboard ship, including house wines and spirits. Her environmentally-friendly equipment, elegantly designed cabins, spacious suites with large windows, and lounge areas that open onto the outside offer the perfect atmosphere for a truly unique cruising experience. Le Lapérouse's facilities and observation areas make your time at sea a pleasure; they include two restaurants and several lounges with access to the open decks and evening entertainment. A state-of-the-art theatre provides an intimate space for lectures and entertainment, while a spa and fitness center provide for travel with ease. 92 staterooms (204 to 296 sq. ft.) and suites (296 to 484 sq. ft.) have sea views; most have private balconies. Decorated by French designers, staterooms offer individually controlled air conditioning and two twin beds that convert to a queen-size bed. Amenities include video on demand, flat-screen TV with satellite channels, electronic safe, hair dryer, iPod Dock and minibar.

As the first ship in a new series that remains true to the Ponant spirit, Le Lapérouse embodies the unique atmosphere that Tauck Small Ship Cruising guests have come to expect – a subtle blend of refinement, intimacy and comfort.
