Fashionably Late by 500 Years,
The French Sent Le Levant To Discover America In 1999

Known for being fashionably late, the French waited a little more than 500 years to send their own exclusive vessel to discover the east coast of America. Not to be outdone by the fabled ships of the Spanish explorers, the latest ship from France is known as Le Levant, a 330-foot, 90-passenger motor vessel among the most sleek and elegant yacht-like cruise ships in the world.

Le Levant made its maiden voyage in December, 1998. Always with an expert naturalist or historian host, the luxurious ship sails the Caribbean, America's east coast, Hudson Bay, the Great Lakes and the upper Amazon. Le Levant's intimate, yacht-like design comprises eight suites and 37 deluxe outside cabins. Carrying a fleet of tenders and Zodiac crafts, the ship features an 11-foot draft, allowing it to reach areas off limits to larger ships and providing ample opportunities for guests to use the variety of sports gear, including snorkeling equipment, diving gear and windsurf boards.
