Secrets of the North Sea
8 Days / 7 Nights
Sail off to discover coastal areas in the
North Sea thanks to an all-new Ponant itinerary.
Join us aboard
Le Lapérouse, a brand new addition to the PONANT fleet, for an 8-day cruise to discover some of the coastal cities of Northern Europe.
In Germany, you will call at
Lübeck and visit its old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There, you will discover superb buildings such as the Heiligen-Geist-Hospital (Hospital of the Holy Spirit) or St Mary’s Church and its seven bells.
You will then sail along the
Kiel Canal to reach the port of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. You will stroll through the city, which is famous for its canals, and enjoy its inhabitants’ relaxed way of life. Amsterdam is famous for its museums, but you will also fall under the charm of the incredible flower market and the superb façades of the beautiful houses.
Finally, you will head to the
Isle of Wight in the south of England. This island was made famous by Queen Victoria, who holidayed here for 60 years. Today, it is renowned for its superb scenery, but also for its currents and winds which make it one of the world’s most ideal destinations for sailing!
Your journey will end in Normandy, in the charming port of
Honfleur which inspired many Impressionist painters.
Featuring innovative and environmentally-friendly equipment, 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.
As the first ship in a new series that remains true to the Ponant spirit, Le Lapérouse will embody the unique atmosphere that is the cruise line's hallmark: a subtle blend of refinement, intimacy and comfort.
Aboard this ship that flies the French flag, you will experience the incomparable pleasure of an intimate cruise, with the possibility of exploring an ever-increasing range of destinations in an ethnic-chic ambiance with luxury service.
Experience a luxurious setting where the accent is on authenticity and passion for travel.
