Le Ponant Cruise

 Experience the privilege of a relaxing cruise aboard Le Soleal

A sleek silhouette, a welcoming intimate atmosphere, discover aboard this new ship the philosophy that has made L’Austral and L'Boreal such a success: the spirit of Yacht Cruises.

Sailing under the French flag, this magnificent yacht of only 132 staterooms and Suites, with balconies, will join the Ponant fleet in June 2013. You will be enchanted by the contemporary decor inspired by the luxury yachting world, with fluid lines and a modern color scheme combining natural wood with shades of grey and white.

A refined ambiance is enhanced by the quality of the workmanship and materials: white Corian counters in the lobby contrast with the warmth of leather to recall a boat’s hull, while the central sculpture of enamelled pieces takes its inspiration from the sea. In the loungebar, the carpet picks up a tennis stripe theme symbolising a certain idea of cruising, one synonymous with French elegance and a chic seaside spirit.
