My wife and I went to Alaska in 2016 with Ponant. We were so impressed with the experience that we began immediately to look into another Ponant cruise. The expedition director in Alaska convinced us to look at the Antarctic.

Our experience in the Antarctic exceeded our expectations. The expedition people were superb and always ready to answer our questions. The crew from captain to room steward was courteous, helpful and enthusiastic. The dining, as we discovered in Alaska, was first class.

The highlights of the trip were seeing Nature at its purest. Walking among the penguins and seals was a thrill.

Cabin Review

Prestige Stateroom

Cabin PS

Compact and comfortable

There are 2 restaurants on board, both of them superb. The one on the second deck is more formal for dinner with table service while the one on the sixth deck is cafeteria. The food is varied and excellent in both places. The domestic wines are most acceptable and there are two sommeliers if you wish to have special wines.
