About Pittsburgh

Long gone are the days of belching steel mills and factories synonymous with Pittsburgh's past. Situated at the confluence of the Ohio, Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania takes advantage of its multiple waterfronts with multiuse pathways for its active population.

The North Shore introduces sports fans to its many stadiums, all in view of the river. A statue of Fred Rogers, creator of the much-loved television show, "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood," overlooks the junction of the three rivers. Designed by one of his favorite sculptors, Robert Berks, the official name of the statue is "Tribute to Children." The accompanying sound system broadcasts some of Mr. Rogers' original songs. Riverboats usually dock in this area.

An easy walk across one of the many pedestrian-friendly bridges takes visitors to the downtown area, with its museums, shops and restaurants. At the tip of downtown, where the three rivers meet, Point State Park provides respite from the hustle and bustle of downtown.

The South Shore includes more trails and the Monongahela and Duquesne (pronounced it "du-cane" to sound like a local) inclines (funiculars) that take riders to the Mount Washington neighborhood above. Walking between the two incline stations offers splendid views of Pittsburgh.

    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
