This was our 3 cruise with Ponant, The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when we had to get on and off the zodiac boats as my husband not long ago has a knee replacement but was still able to go and enjoy the expedition. Level 3 was easier for him to get around to reception and get on the zodiacs. The expedition staff were amazing and were very passionate and knowledgeable about their chosen fields, we had booked dinner with the expedition crew and it was very imformative to sit and enjoy their company. The Kimberley coast of Australia, what better way to see this by boat/zodiacs amazing, we saw whales, turtles, dolphins, birds and so much more, I would encouage everyone to go its truley amazing. We ate dinner of a night alternating between the dining room and buffet which is on the pool deck, as the nights were warm and it was great to be outside. TV with satellite wasnt always that good. The food in the restaurant wasn’t as good as the last 2 cruises, buffet offered a better range of food. Pastries, Desserts, icecream, sorbet, cheese, bread yummy!

Fantastic scenery Kimberly Coast.

Cabin Review

Cabin 327
The balcony cabin on level 3 has metal balcony when sitting outside on the chair, being 5ft 4” I found that I could not see over the railing and their is a single door you have to open, we have stayed in cabin on level 4 before and their is a sliding door plus you have a better view when outside due to the different railing, overall cabins size on level 3 and 4 are identical.
