    Overview

    A sleek silhouette, a welcoming intimate atmosphere, discover aboard this new ship the philosophy that has made L'AUSTRAL and LE 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. You will be enchanted by the contemporary decor inspired by the luxury yachting world, with fluid lines and a modern colour 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.

    Please note that the staterooms shown below are samples only. Actual cabin decor, details and layout may vary by stateroom category and type.

    Sometimes you can just tell from the moment you step onboard that what lies ahead is going to fantastic and it JUST WAS !! The ship is beautiful and feels larger than it actually is yet allowed us to slip into smaller inlets and harbours that big ships just can't squeeze into. Le Soleal's decor is gorgeous and also very comfortable with amazing public spaces that beckon you, loads of deck space and the most beautifully appointed staterooms with super comfortable beds. The bathroom is thoughtfully designed with a separate toilet which is unique to Ponant and was appreciated. Overall I truly loved cruising on Le Soleal and have no hesitation in recommending Ponant to anyone who is looking for a sophisticated and unforgettable experience.
    Very elegant

    Beautifully appointed, classy with a serene relaxed atmosphere on board. The best entertainment in the evening I have ever experienced on a small ship. Friendly crew and a great Cruise Director. Dining certainly met all my expectations. Cruised in Asia with them.
