Sail Date: Mar 2018
Cabin:

Time and place was suitable. Cruise #1 was very attractive with visit to game reserves. Cruise #2 was not as attractive as we are not great swimmers.

one of the few english lecturers was 82 yrs old, he sat during his mumbled talks. Only one of the expedition team ( of more than 16) was an englishman so that the number of talks in english was very limited - though the french staff members tried hard.

Only 15% of the 200+ passengers were english speaking, we were all felt to feel like second class travellers, not by the ship's staff (who were excellent) but by the expedition members. three couples, independently, said to us they would not sail with ponant again.

Cabin DELUXE

A LITTLE ON THE SMALL SIZE COMPARED WITH OTHER CRUISE LINES - ONLY ONE ARMCHAIR
