After a very disappointing cruise with Ponant to the Seychelles (See my comments Le Bougainville) we had been thoroughly enjoying this cruise to the sub-Antarctic Islands of New Zealand and Australia. It’s definitely one of the windiest and choppiest corners of our globe and weather related changes of the itinerary are more than common. The captain and the crew had been outstanding in every respect. Their professional handling of all situations and the talent of improvisation helped to make this a memorable expedition. The entire expedition team and the two representatives of National Geographic had been exceptional, as well. Excellent presentations on board! Thank you, Sandrine (the Expedition Manager) ! We also want to mention the cruise director who did an excellent job, too.

We are definitely looking forward to our next expedition with one of the Ponant ships! Finally it all depends on people! This time we had been lucky!
