48 hours on Le Champlain
Last week I was invited on board Ponant's expedition yacht, Le Champlain, for two nights while she sailed from Dover to Bergen, Norway.
The entirety of my voyage was purely at sea until we arrived in Bergen on the morning of disembarkation, but we did get to see the city in full that day.
Scenic's food is out of this world!
Scenic Eclipse. What an experience!
In so many ways this trip gave me the wow factor! As a Cornish girl, sailing out of Fowey was always going to be special for me but driving up to the harbour where I spent so much of my childhood and seeing such a sleek and stylish ship docked was really something quite unique.

As the waiter hovered beside me, pen poised, I scanned the menu for the umpteenth time. But no matter how delicious the Michelin-star-inspired dishes sounded – including sea-line-caught sea bass with truffled cauliflower and caviar served with smoked candy floss or crab and yuzo Tobiko Uramaki sushi, – I knew what she wanted for lunch wasn’t on there.
