Why we like the Charcot cruise ship

  • This ship is equipped with hybrid engines using liquefied natural gas, minimising the carbon footprint of your trip
  • A strong focus on the expedition with a full programme of landings on each trip
  • A great example of the expedition approach is the trip to the Geographical North Pole; this ship is a serious ice breaker
  • One of the few ships to sail the full length of the Northwest Passage from Greenland to Nome
  • Offers adventure and relaxation in equal measure, with an indoor pool, sauna, spa, and choice of restaurants and bars
