We took the August 2 – August 16, 2016 Abercrombie and Kent tour of the Arctic. This is our second time on the ship as we also sailed in December 2012 with the Abercrombie and Kent tour of Antarctica. Many of the ship crew (and ... Read more

This particular cruise was the transportation/living accommodations from an alumni organization trip booked by my husband (whom I love dearly but didn't do much research on what the trip entailed). Instead of a small group, the ship ... Read more

My husband and I normally like to spend our holidays in a warm climate so this choice of Alaska was a huge gamble - we loved the whole experience! We were met at Vancouver Airport and transported by light aircraft to Nome, way up in the ... Read more

Sailed December 2014
I cruised on Le Boreal as part of a chartered Abercrombie and Kent expedition including The Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and the Antarctic peninsula in Dec 14/Jan 15. There are many reasons to select Le Boreal/A&K for this ... Read more

I choose the ship and trip expecting to be fed interesting French cusine rather than the typical steam table cardboard. Apparently quite a number of the other guests expected the same and were as disapointed as I was. Breakfasts and ... Read more

Have recently returned from a short cruise sailing from London - Tower Bridge to Copenhagen through the Kiel Canal. The info we received from Ponant re embarkation started us off on a wrong footing - giving us incorrect info re boarding. ... Read more

Overview – This was a cruise to the Antarctic so the life on board the ship was catered to the location we were heading. Our trip with Compagnie de Ponant started with a chartered flight from Buenos Aires to Ushuaia, Argentina. We ... Read more

Le Boreal is a very attractive ship with an elegant, sophisticated interior, comfortable public spaces, and smallish but comfortable cabins. We had a Deluxe Suite which had an extra dressing space and a longer balcony, and we found that ... Read more

We enjoyed a two week Central America cruise on Le Boreal, a 2010-built vessel with 264 pax capacity. We had 186 on board. Crew 144. New vessels offer lots of advantages. First, the pluses: Cabins are small but feature a tasteful ... Read more

Just to start I want to say that a trip to Antarctica is a special thing. It is the most magical and wonderful and amazing trip anyone can make. The sheer scale of the scenery is difficult to verbalize and the awe it inspires cannot be ... Read more

The biggest decision to make in regard to going to Antarctica on an 'expedition' ship is how much time you wish to spend 'off the boat', and what style you want to experience while on-board. Le Boreal is still probably the most stylish ... Read more

Sailed December 2010
I was surprised to read the review by Tilly-Loves-Seabourn, because our experience was nearly identical on a 10-day cruise to Antarctica in December 2010. The saving grace was that our cruise was chartered by Abercrombie & Kent, who ... Read more

The Le Boreal is the newest of the Le Ponant fleet. I have been on Le Ponant and Le Levant so was curious how this new vessel would stack up. General Impression: this is a very modern, clean ship with a very customer friendly design and ... Read more

I have had the pleasure of cruising on the new Ponant creature Le Boreal. After cruising 134 times, I still think Ponant is the perfect choice for all who want quality at low prices, in the premium cruising category. Aimed to give the ... Read more

We boarded the brand new mega yacht Le Boreal in May for her Monaco Grand Prix cruise, with high expectations for an ultra luxury cruise experience. I will initially explain that I have now cruised with quite a few of the luxury lines ... Read more
