Launched in 2018, Le Lapérouse is the first of a new series of Explorer ships that remain true to the Ponant spirit, embodying the unique atmosphere that is the cruise line’s hallmark: a subtle blend of refinement, intimacy and comfort. The ship offers guests elegantly designed cabins, spacious suites with large windows, and lounge areas that open onto the outside, this new limited-capacity yacht boasting just 92 cabins and suites will offer you a truly unique cruising experience. Le Lapérouse will be the first cruise ship on Earth to be equipped with a multi-sensory underwater space, called Blue Eye, located within the hull beneath the water line.

From $9630.59 Per person including taxes Available dates September 27th 2019

Discover the rich historical and cultural diversity of the western Pacific. 5,000 years of Chinese history collected in the National Palace Museum in Taipei; the unique crafts and music of the people of Ishigaki; the legacy of the Ryuku kingdom represented in the UNESCO World Heritage Shuri Castle on Okinawa; the samurai houses of Chiran; the Fujisan Sengen shrine in the foothills of Mt. Fuji; the Kumano Shinto shrines near Shingu – these are just some of the fascinating places you may visit along your way from Hong Kong to Osaka. Move into the 20th century as the ship sails – metaphorically – in the wake of General Douglas MacArthur on his way to accept Japanese surrender in 1945. Your two guest lecturers, James Bradley and Philip Hurst will guide you in an exploration of the origins and conduct of World War II, a defining event of the 20th century – realigning the balance of power both in Europe and in Asia, and establishing the United States as a global superpower. This English speaking only cruise also includes a one night hotel stay in Hong Kong pre-cruise plus a number of fascinating excursions.
