Ship Facilities

True to French culture, fine dining is an important part of life on board Le Dumont d’Urville. Le Nautilus on Deck 4 is a large, panoramic restaurant, capable of seating all passengers at once. It’s open to the exterior and serves salad buffets, desserts and cheese, plus a table service for hot meals. The laid-back, exterior Grill Restaurant on Deck 3 serves grilled meats, salads and desserts.
The ship’s main lounge is on Deck 3. Big enough to accommodate all guests at once, it hosts regular daytime and evening entertainment. The panoramic lounge on Deck 6 features a library, internet space, access onto the panoramic terrace, a bar and, on certain evenings, live entertainment. Le Dumont d’Urville’s pièce de résistance is the spectacular Blue Eye; a multisensorial underwater lounge.
Recreational Areas
Visit the onboard theatre, take a dip in the pool or soak up the rays on the sun deck. Browse the well-equipped shop in the reception area or enjoy a relaxing treatment in the spa, an invigorating gym session or a salon appointment in the L’espace Bien-Être wellbeing centre.
