Featuring innovative and environmentally-friendly equipment, elegantly designed staterooms, spacious suites with large windows, and lounge areas that open onto the outside, this new limited-capacity yacht boasting just 92 staterooms and suites will offer you a truly unique cruising experience.
As the third ship in a new series that remains true to the Ponant spirit, Le Bougainville 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.

All cabins on Le Bougainville have balconies, air conditioning, two twin beds that can be pushed together to form a king-sized bed, mini-bar, flat-screen TV with video on demand, an iPod for use onboard and a desk. Bathrooms have showers and French bath products, though suites have bathtubs as well.
Prestige and Deluxe staterooms offer 205 square feet of space, while suites range in size from 291 to 484 square feet. Only the Privilege Suites can accommodate more than two passengers.
A unique feature on all of the Ponant Explorer-class ships is the Blue Eye Lounge. Here, passengers can see passing marine life through two giant windows, shaped like a whale’s eyes, inset in the ship’s hull (that’s right the lounge is under the water line!) as well as on digital screens projecting live images filmed by three underwater cameras. Cruisers will be able to hear the marine life as well via specially developed hydrophones, located beneath the ship’s keel, which will capture noises up to 5 kilometers away. As if that weren’t enough, the underwater sounds will resonate as vibrations on special sofas passengers can sit on.
Another standout feature is an aft water sports marina, from which cruisers can enter the water for swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding. A fleet of Zodiacs is also located in the marina.
As on the other Explorer-class ships, Le Bougainville has an infinity pool with counter-current swimming system.
Other public areas include a main lounge, a 188-seat theater and a boutique.
Wi-Fi on Ponant ships is complimentary.
Le Bougainville has two restaurants; as with all Ponant ships the cuisine in both venues is French-inspired. The main restaurant (Deck 4) can fit all passengers in one sitting, while the second dining venue (Deck 3) is more relaxed and seats just 70 people.
