For those wanting to travel to some of the world's most desirable locations in the utmost comfort and style, L'Austral has everything you need for a cruise holiday that you won't forget in a hurry. With space for less than 300 guests, the cosy and intimate feel of this contemporary ship makes the experience more akin to holidaying on a private yacht, complete with some of the finest French cuisine at sea. Whether you're voyaging to the remote areas of Antarctica, soaking up the sun around the Canary Islands or discovering some of the hidden gems on the British Isles, this inviting ship has everything you need to do this while enjoying the characteristic elegance and sophistication of a Ponant cruise.
Fine French cuisine is made to perfection at the two onboard restaurants. With space for all guests to dine in one sitting, Le Coromandel is the main dining venue on L'Austral, presenting guests with delicious dishes throughout the day, as well as discreet yet attentive service from the experienced crew. If you're looking for something a little cosier, Le Rodrigues is a smaller restaurant serving a variety of hot dishes and buffet options, with outside seating available for those wanting to enjoy their meals al fresco.
Evenings during your cruise with L'Austral can be as lively or as laidback as you like. With a theatre and main lounge, live entertainment is never far away, with an engaging programme of productions, music and dance available throughout the cruise. However, for those wanting something more relaxed, the onboard lounges and al fresco bar are the ideal spots for grabbing a drink and spending a romantic evening with your loved ones or sharing stories with fellow guests.
With its inviting water, stunning views and abundance of sun loungers, it's no wonder that the pool deck is such a popular spot on L'Austral. What's more, with a nearby bar, you won't even need to stray far to find yourself a drink and a snack. However, if you want to elevate your holiday relaxation to another level, book in for a treatment at the spa and beauty salon where a few hours of pampering will leave you feeling brand new.
On the other hand, not everyone wants to spend their cruise laying back and relaxing, so if this is you, you'll be delighted to hear that there's a gym and watersports marina available for guests to use. Whether you want to keep up with your workouts even when you're at sea or you want to see what more the ocean has to offer by heading out on a kayak or paddle board, there's plenty to keep the more active guests occupied.
