Ship statistics;


Le Bougainville

The intimate and luxurious Le Bougainville takes its guests to remote ports and unique destinations as part of Ponant's Explorer series.  Equipped with innovative features such as a three-form Marina and the multi-sensory Blue Eye lounge.
The 92 cabins and suites onboard are spacious, well-appointed and feature a private balcony. All throughout the ship, guests will experience Ponant's unique French style of modern luxury, with elegant restaurants and welcoming lounges, excellent facilities and warm, friendly service.
Similar in size to a yacht, Le Bougainville has only two dining venues onboard, focusing much more on the quality of the cuisine and allowing guests to enjoy the world of French gastronomy.
The main venue is the panoramic restaurant capable of seating all guests at once and offering an alfresco area with a buffet of salads, desserts and cheeses. The alternative option is the more casual 70-guest grill which serves meats, salads and desserts. 
The panoramic lounge keeps guests entertained day and night with a programme of activities and events.
Equipped with the latest sound and lighting technology and an LED back wall, the ship's theatre offers excellent evening entertainment from various talented performers.
Caring for your wellbeing, Le Bougainville is equipped with a fitness centre, hair salon and spa on deck 7 where excellent views can be enjoyed.
As an alternative to the ship's lounge, guests can spend time on the sun deck which is equipped with a counter-current swimming pool, an outdoor bar and lounge and a solarium. 
Guests have the opportunity to experience life underwater and observe sea life from the comfort of the ship at the multi-sensory Blue Eye lounge, a world's first for cruising.
Adventurous guests can make use of the Zodiacs and complimentary water sports equipment offered from the three-form hydraulic marina.
