Blue Eye, the underwater lounge aboard the PONANT EXPLORERS
On the Explorer ships, which will launch as early as 2018, guests can unwind after a day of sightseeing in the world's first-ever underwater lounges, called Blue Eyes.
Featuring giant portholes shaped like whale eyes, these ultra-modern lounges — conceived by French architect Jacques Rougerie (a specialist in underwater habitats) — also have blue mood lighting, curved seating, and decorative lines that echo the movement and shape of native marine life.
The first Explorer ships, Le Lapérouse and Le Champlain, will debut in the summer of 2018. Le Lapérouse’s inaugural sailing will take intrepid travelers around the entire island of Iceland.
