Le Commandant Charcot

Carrying 270 passengers, French line Ponant’s new polar exploration ship (below) combines luxury with green energy, using a hybrid propulsion system to sail emission-free and almost silently in environmentally sensitive areas. There are 123 staterooms and suites, a spa and two restaurants.


Silver Moon

Launched this summer and accommodating a mere 596 guests in considerable luxury, Silver Moon is the sister ship of Silver Muse.

On board you’ll soon get a taste for SALT – Silversea’s innovative 'Sea And Land Taste’ programme – with food and wine choices based on the exotic destinations you visit during your trip.

The eagerly awaited first expedition ship from Crystal Cruises comes equipped with two helicopters and a submarine. On board, the 200 lucky guests will be treated to 5-star Japanese dishes by world-famous chef Nobu Matsuhisa.



Scheduled to launch in December, this ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ship will take 264 guests on journeys to some of the most remote parts of the world.

As well as enjoying Seabourn’s exemplary on-board service, guests can venture off the ship – and beneath the waves – aboard two mini-submarines.
