Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2018
  • Destination: the South Pacific

I have been on this ship once before to Macquarie Island and the New Zealand subantartic islands. This ship takes you to places where the others don’t go. Unbelievable experiences and excellent on board, with quality food beautifully cooked, interesting fellow passengers and a relaxed style. Magnifique as only the French can do.

The all inclusive fare includes your shore excursions in zodiacs (if on an expedition cruise) drinks, premium coffee etc which at the end of the day makes a cruise with this line much more competitive in price than it might seem at first blush when simply comparing ticket prices.

Ponant ships are new, well equipped serve some of the best food I have ever experienced on a cruise ship and provide great service.

All announcements are in French and English and there is a very welcoming atmosphere on board.

The expedition cruises are great fun and the expedition crew are amazing.

Je t’aime L’Austral

Cabin Review

Cabin Prestige 431

Cabin is adequate, well equipped and no issues. A little small but not terribly so
