Beyond the polar circle expedition trip of 16 nights with Ponant Soleal including the Falkland and South Georgia Islands will always remain in our memories for life. Landscapes still intact and wild life of birds, penguins, seals, whales, and icebergs, sea ice, and mountains of Antarctica were no where found and still very much untouched by humans makes this expedition very unique of its kind. Ponant staff overall were very friendly and very service oriented deserve to be appreciated. Naturalists were young, multilingual, motivated, and , very knowledgeable and did a fantastic job with landings and preparing the land itineraries with poles and presence everywhere if you needed them. We had the cabin 603 deluxe suite and it was comfortable although the toilet we a bit small. Internet connection was not the best although it had to be purchased separately but we were warned about the connection. Overall, I would rate this expedition trip with Ponant high, 4.5 on a scale of 5.

Cabin Review

Cabin 603
It was a comfortable deluxe suite on the deck 6 starboard side with 27sq.mtr of cabin space and 5 sq.mtr of balcony. It was clean and well equipped with a espresso machine and always filled with essentiel drinks in the mini bar. The shower was separate then the toilette.
Shower space was good but the seperate toilet was a bit small. There was enough closet space with enough hangers.The cabin layout was good, facing the double single beds there was a sitting sofa and a TV although it could have been better placed on the wall.
