Take a Glimpse Into The Good Life: The Food, Wine And Finer Things

If you love the finer things in life, have we ever got the cruise for you! This voyage is all about fine wine, decadent dining and sheer luxury.

This is your chance to treat yourself and indulge in the good life! Join Ponant Cruises’ Chairman Asia Pacific, Sarina Bratton AM, on the inaugural voyage of the new Explorer Class ship Le Laperouse exploring the east coast of Australia from Cairns to Sydney, enjoying intimate dining experiences throughout.

Showcasing some of Australia’s best produce, you’ll be treated to a gastronomic extravagance by Ponant Cruises’ expert chefs, including the renowned Guillaume Brahimi. Following 12 years of raising Sydney’s iconic Bennelong to the heights of Three Hats awarded by the Good Food Guide, Guillaume has found astounding success within his own namesake, Bistro Guillaume. Inspired by the bistros of Paris, Guillaume exemplifies the culinary diversity of Australia with finesse and elegance.

With two evening menus, each boasting a four-course degustation, complete with matching wines as well as an Australian seafood buffet lunch, you’ll never want to go home! Join the masterclass to learn top tips from Guillaume and enjoy a sensational tasting session – this is a foodie’s paradise!

All the while, you’ll be cruising the stunning Queensland waters, with stops at beautiful Lizard and Willis Islands before exploring Hardy Reef, Percy Island and Lady Musgrave Island. With plenty of opportunity to soak up the sun on the perfect white sand beaches or to snorkel the colourful reefs, this voyage is one perfect day after another!

In the evening, you can enjoy the convivial French atmosphere onboard Le Laperouse with luxurious cabins and spacious deck areas. And with just 92 staterooms and suites, your onboard experience is truly unique and personal.
