Sailed on Le Soleal before and really like these vessels, not huge , excellent service and well appointed cabins , also around 250 passengers and around 140 crew, no casino or Pokies , these ships cater for a mature audience with a sense of adventure hence the Zodiac inflatables on board to explore and land on remote beaches .

With this in mind we booked on a cruise from Honolulu to French Polynesia , passengers mostly French , this can be a challenge if your French language skills are not up to scratch and , on their turf the French mostly keep themselves , a pity we had a great experience when sailing along the Australian coast ( Our Turf) on Le Soleal , more English speaking passengers , however the Crew from the top down are English speaking.

This is a very important factor, Ponant is doing all it can to include all pasengers, but you have to keep this in mind when booking a cruise with Ponant and the area you visit,

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom

Cabin DS

Well appointed and compact, not huge , plenty of storage under the beds for your suitcases, as we stayed on deck 3, no engine noise whatsoever , separate toilet, if you are a large person it will be a challenge to visit the bathroom and shower, cabins are nicely decorated
