Ponant christening

Ponant christening

PONANT celebrated the christening of Le Laperouse, the first of four Explorer newbuilds, on Tue.

The vessel was christened by its godmother, Francois Pinault, at port Hafnarfjordur, Iceland.

The ceremony was inspired by the French region of Brittany and included Breton singer Bleuwenn Mevel giving an acapella rendition of the Breton anthem and Konan Mevel (from Breton band Tri Yann) playing bagpipes as Le Laperouse sailed off.

Another highlight involved Le Laperouse being greeted by Le Soleal, another Ponant ship positioned in Icelandic waters.
