L'Austral was absolutely perfect!
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Took the cruise from Venice to the Dalmatian Coast and one day was more spectacular than the next. The cabin may have been small, but luxurious, clean and comfortable. The dining hall was elegant and the meals spectacular. The outdoor grill was more modest and the food not as good, but offered a change of atmosphere.
There were plenty of activities to keep you busy and private space was readily available. Excursions appealed to the sporty-types and the tourists; something for everyone. The incredible staff and the personal care shown by the ship's captain was truly unique. We just happened to take the "Family Cruise" and, although we didn't have children, this added to the fun. I'm assuming that mostly adults choose this cruise at other times and may not be appropriate for kids. Lastly, everyone on board, crew and guests, spoke English, More but this is a French line and French is the dominant language. We found that this added to the exotic nature of the trip, but some may find this difficult.
L'Austral was like spending time on a private yacht with a knowledgeable crew and great new friends; elegant, relaxing and memorable. Less

We were in an average cabin which was small but beautiful. Very clean with lots of storage space. Housekeeping was excellent. All cabins have a balcony. Separate toilet and sink area a little difficult, but seems a minor complaint.
