Ship Facts: L'Austral Review (by Cruise Critic!)
L'Austral was absolutely perfect!
Maybe after the first 2 voyages the crew of L'Austral gelled, because the previous reviews were nothing like the experience we had.

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, 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.
