L'Austral Overview

In early 2019 L’Austral heads north along the South American Atlantic coast, crosses to Africa, and north to the Norwegian Arctic islands, and then to Greenland for a season. The cruise departing Longyearbyen, Norway, on 12 July 2019 takes guests to seven ports in Greenland, and perhaps one of the best scenic cruises in the world – Prince Christian Sound. Depart 24 August 2019 to cross the Northwest Passage from Greenland to Alaska, an adventure made possible only in the last few years. From mid-September L’Austral sails in six stages down the Pacific coast of the Americas to Ushuaia at the southern tip of South America. Some cruises from there cross the Antarctic Circle, the route governed by local weather and ice conditions. In March 2020 L’Austral heads north in the Atlantic, with interesting forays into African islands and the British Isles, to the Arctic Circle. Simply put, L’Austral sails the summers of the polar regions.

Accommodation

All 132 staterooms are of generous size with sea views, and include all the usual luxury amenities: DVD, CD and iPod players with Video on Demand, Internet access, controllable AC, bath robe and toiletries, wardrobes encased in white leather, and king or twin beds. On Deck 3 there are eight Superior Staterooms each with a panoramic window, and 28 Deluxe Staterooms with balcony, walk-in robe and bathtub. On Decks 4 to 6 there are 92 Prestige Staterooms. Forty of these can be linked with adjoining cabins and reconfigured, to make 20 Prestige Suites. These will have two bathrooms, and separate sleeping and entertainment areas. Staterooms can accommodate a third person.

Food and Dining

French cuisine making good use of local fresh foods is a feature of this vessel. The two restaurants welcome guests to breakfast, lunch and dinner. The 268-seat Gastronomic Restaurant, at the rear and adjacent to the Marina, serves meals and complimentary wines worthy of the finest restaurants. The smaller Grill Restaurant adjacent to the pool offers al fresco dining with buffet lunches and themed dinners. Dress for dining is smart casual – it’s only the waiters who wear black ties and white gloves.

Entertainment

Lounges are used for lectures by prominent experts, depending on the voyage, and also for shows, as is the 260-seat Theatre. For solitude retire to the library, games area with Wii™ consoles, or Internet room. Every guest can feel comfortable relaxing in his/her own way. Guests will find that most entertainment comes from ocean views and on-shore excursions. After all, this is an expedition vessel! Evenings are the times to share the day’s experiences with friends.
