    Le Soleal - Ponant

    Pros

    Le Soleal's small size enables it to reach smaller, way off-the-beaten track ports of call

    Cons

    Ship has a decided French air, which might not appeal to all North Americans or Australians

    Bottom Line

    Upscale, small ship experience with maximum time in port
