Le Boreal Cruises

5
(from 1 verified customers)

Le Boréal offers itineraries that are impressive. She joined Compagnie du Ponant as a premium vessel in 2010, 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.

Onboard Experience

  • 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. Read more

    Dress for dining is smart casual – it’s only the waiters who wear black ties and white gloves.

  • Bars

    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.

  • Entertainment

    Lounges are used for lectures by prominent experts, depending on the voyage, and also for shows, as is the 260-seat Theatre.

  • Activities

    For solitude retire to the library, games area with Wii™ consoles, or Internet room. Every guest can feel comfortable relaxing in their own way. Guests will find that most entertainment comes from ocean views and on-shore excursions. After all, this is an expedition vessel!
