On July 13 guests aboard PONANT’S Le Commandant Charcot reached the geographic North Pole, marking the first time ever a luxury passenger vessel brought travelers to this otherworldly and northernmost point on Earth. The achievement was made possible thanks to PONANT experts in expeditions to the polar regions. “It is with great humility and emotion that we have reached this latitude, each of us aware of the exceptional character of this moment we have been living,” said Captain Patrick Marchesseau. The achievement follows closely upon Le Commandant Charcot’s first voyage to the North Pole in September 2021. This voyage marked the first time a French vessel reached this latitude. ponant.com
