Additional details

Sail Date: Jul 2013
Cabin:

We left Istanbul end of the day and the ship looked small compared to the Costa and the Xelebrity.

The Austral is the second after Boral and before the new Solal. Human size Yachts of only 264 passengers, with only very nice outside rooms.

But the first impressions were very positive regarding the casual and friendly style of this company. On a lot of ships you see the captain at a drink or a special event. Here Captain Jean-Philippe Lemaire and his staff were very close to the passengers. I reminded the experience of 2008 on the Windstar!

Cabin Review
