A new cruise ship which has arrived at Fairlie Quay has a strong environmental focus while providing 'absolute comfort' for its passengers.

Le Bellot has six key commitments including minimising nitrogen and sulphur oxide emissions, reducing  CO² emissions, eliminating single use plastics, reusing and tracing all its waste, embarking scientific research teams and supporting the creation of marine protected areaes.

The passenger ship was built three years ago and is sailing under the flag of Wallis Futuna Islands.

Her overall length is 131.5 metres and her width is 18 metres.

All the 92 staterooms and suites onboard Le Bellot are equipped with private balconies or terraces.

The Le Bellot website states: " Le Bellot has been designed to provide absolute comfort for its passengers, even at the heart of the world's most remote and isolated regions.
Racy lines, state-of-the-art equipment, a refined design, a softly muted and at the same time convivial ambiance together with a deliberately restricted number of cabins all contribute to the modernity of Le Bellot, a unique ship in the world of cruising."
