We were extremely grateful for Martine's advice regarding cabin position. We would have selected level 12 ourselves however she advised this was under Horizon Court and she felt there could be a noise problem. Friends we travelled with were in the area we would have selected and they continually complained of having bad nights with noise"

Le Soléal cruises for 2020-2021


Le Soléal sails the Pacific Ocean, from Alaska and Japan in the north, south to the Antarctic Peninsula. Until February 2020 she runs 11- and 17-night cruises to sub-Antarctica out of Ushuaia. If you are on an expedition cruise, check all pre-cruise requirements months ahead of time. If Easter Island is on your bucket list (after Antarctica) take the 9-night cruise there from Ushuaia in March 2020. Then Le Soléal heads for French Polynesia, Fiji, Solomon Islands, and five rarely-visited islands in Micronesia. In May to June 2020 see ‘the best of Japan’ over 7-night cruises. August to September cruises sail the Inside Passage of Alaska and British Columbia. Then late in 2020 she returns to the sub-Antarctic region based in Ushuaia.

Life aboard Le Soléal
Le Soléal sails the Pacific Ocean, from Alaska and Japan in the north, south to the Antarctic Peninsula. Until February 2020 she runs 11- and 17-night cruises to sub-Antarctica out of Ushuaia. If you are on an expedition cruise, check all pre-cruise requirements months ahead of time. If Easter Island is on your bucket list (after Antarctica) take the 9-night cruise there from Ushuaia in March 2020. Then Le Soléal heads for French Polynesia, Fiji, Solomon Islands, and five rarely-visited islands in Micronesia. In May to June 2020 see ‘the best of Japan’ over 7-night cruises. August to September cruises sail the Inside Passage of Alaska and British Columbia. Then late in 2020 she returns to the sub-Antarctic region based in Ushuaia.

Le Soléal (the Sun/Sunlight, French) offers itineraries that are impressive. She joined Compagnie du Ponant as a premium vessel in 2013, showing magnificent lines, elegance and furnishings that reflect modern French marine architecture. She is 5-star, “your own private yacht.” With 264 guests and 140 crew service is personal. Technically, her dynamic positioning system (no anchors) and ‘Clean Ship’ standards are impressive. Fellow passengers come from many backgrounds, are well-travelled and refined. You’ll find all amenities are modern, ample space for sun-bathing or solitude, theatre for 250 with entertainment on selected evenings, and fine dining. Gratuities are additional.

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.

On Deck 6 is the one very large Owner’s Suite with its own dining area, and three large Deluxe Suites. Full Butler Service is available to the 13 suites on Deck 6, to attend to your every need. Three cabins are specially adapted for disabled guests, and adjacent to elevators. Three elevators service all decks. There is 24 h room service with a dining menu. From May 2015 the minibar will be complimentary.

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.

The forward-looking Panoramic Lounge and Terrace, and the Main Lounge off Reception are comfortably fitted with leather seats and are just the places to build friendships, perhaps with a drink or cocktail. There is also an open-air bar on the top Sun Deck. Each afternoon pastries and drinks are served. There is an Open Bar from May 2015.

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.

The Fitness centre is fitted with the latest equipment such as Kinesis Wall, exercise cycles and running machines. The Beauty Centre offers treatments by Sothys, and includes a range of massages and pampering. Smoking is allowed in designated outside areas, and the number of smokers may depend on the region and clientele. Remember, this is not essentially a family ship.
