A brand new ship, 150 other guests, many from France and Belgium as it was a a Opera Cruise. Us Australians were adopted by all and again we could not fault Ponant. The destinations visited, the tours, the food, the wines, the cruise companions, the crew..... you name it, all lends for a perfect cruise.
We visited Greece, Turkey, Egypt and Jordon. Add that to our Antarctic cruise in late 2017. We are now ready for Patagonia in March 2021 and the Kimberley in 2022.
We found the cabins of a good size and the balconies on the new ships perfectly adequate. Very clean and room service, along with alcohol, all included.
On this trip the 12 non French speaking people ( although our French is fairly good) were give their own tour coach along with English speaking guide.
We have travelled Silversea in the past also however Ponant seems to be more relaxed.
Clean and continuously looked after by attendant. Decent size with terrace. Bathroom a little small however not everything can be perfect. You get what you pay for. Normal French custom, seperate toilets which should be standard on all ships.
We saw the Corinth Canal and saw much history.
A walking tour of the town and time for cocktails
The temples and immediate surrounds are excellent. However the surrounding areas are filthy and the local authorities need to get their act together.View All 12 Karnak Temple Reviews
