Ponant Cruise Line – The Cruise Line from Hell

In October my wife and I boarded Ponant Le Champlain at Boston USA for a 2 week cruise to Mexico. My description “the cruise line from hell” relates to the “campylobacter” food poisoning I suffered. Food poisoning/upset stomachs is not necessarily unusual but in this case I became seriously ill.

The food poisoning in my case can easily be directed to the “raw” foie gras that was served on top have beef as a main course.

Cabin Review

The cabin was small but adequate. The balcony was/is a complete waste of space. The opaque railings stop any view of the sea and it is difficult to sit comfortably.
