L'Austral is the second of Ponant's sisterships following the Le Boreal after joining in May 2011. As a Sistership, the L'Austral is a luxurious 264 passenger mega-yacht featuring French interiors designed by Jean-Philippe Nuel and a level of luxury true to French standards.

Throughout its six chic and sophisticated decks, guests will find themselves at home in the excellently spacious public areas, including the Main Lounge, Panorama Bar and terrace, Gastronomy and Grill restaurants, and the sun deck with a pool and open-air bar.

Cuisine and Dining on L'Austral

The L'Austral has two dining options available: the main Gastronomy Restaurant and the casual, relaxed Grill Restaurant. With seating for 268 passengers, the Gastronomy Restaurant can accommodate all guests onboard so they can enjoy the exquisite French cuisine without worry. There's also a wine cellar here with fantastic choices available.

The smaller Grill Restaurant includes an inside and outside area, seating 150 and 60 guests respectively. The Grill Restaurant offers a far more relaxed and comfortable venue with lighter menus for a number of tastes. Grab a quick breakfast, eat to your heart's content at the buffet lunch or treat yourself to something special with the themed dinners.

Spa & Fitness on L'Austral

For the ultimate relaxation onboard, Ponant are partnered with SOTHYS Paris who together equipped the L'Austral with an extensive spa & health area.

Enjoy the ship's well-equipped fitness room, massage parlours, and a Hammam sauna. Exclusive to the L'Austral and Le Boreal, a balneotherapy area is also available for relaxing aromatherapy baths. 

Recreation on L'Austral

Choose from the two Main and Panorama Lounges to relax, gossip and engage with other guests and have the opportunity to enjoy fantastic evening performances from entertainers, as well as a boutique in the Main lounge and internet corner in the Panorama lounge.

The Bengale deck is home to a sizable Leisure Area with a photo station or you can take a swim in the ship's pool outside the Grill Restaurant. The ship is also equipped with a marina for ocean swimming if you prefer. For those that want some alone time, all staterooms include a flat screen TV with videos on demand to relax to.
