The Panama Canal & Costa Rica - Westbound on Le Dumont d'Urville
Marvel in awe of one of the greatest engineering feats of the 20th century... cruise along the canal that revolutionized shipping patterns... gaze in awe as you pass the tropical forests, secluded beaches, diverse wildlife and clear waters that make up Costa Rica and Panama, and whose many treasures remain undisturbed by development. A 7-night voyage aboard one of Ponant's new Explorer Class yachts – Le Dumont ...
Sophisticated styling, innovative “green” technology, and welcoming, attentive service are all hallmarks of Le Dumont d'Urville, one of Ponant's new limited-capacity yachts (boasting 92 staterooms and suites) debuting for Tauck in 2019. Like her sister ships Le Lapérouse and Le Champlain, Le Dumont d'Urville 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 Dumont d'Urville'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 one of a new series of ships that remain true to the Ponant spirit, Le Dumont d'Urville will embody the unique atmosphere that Tauck Small Ship Cruising guests have come to expect – a subtle blend of refinement, intimacy and comfort.
