Cruise to Remember

Sail Date: February 2017
Destination: Antarctica
Embarkation: Ushuaia
My wife and I chose this cruise because of the small number of passengers, French cuisine, wines and other drinks included, good comments from friends who have sailed on Ponant. Our expectations were met.

Also liked the access to the bridge and information provided on the navigation from the officers.

The professionalism of the crews of the Zodiacs was noted and welcomed.

The ability to book a table in the Deck 2 restaurant meant that our group could have pre-dinner drinks and not rush to be at a table; very civilised.

The entertainment from the dancers was very professional, the quizes were entertaining and were suitable for an audience from mixed counties, including French (mainly), Australian, US and others.

Announcements in English, in addition to those in French, were welcome and should be a priority.

A highlight of our cruise was the captain's decision to berth into the ice shelf and provide champaigne and a group photograph. More

We will be booking further cruises on Ponant. Less

Cabin review: PS Prestige Stateroom

Cabin was very nicely finished, very quiet. It was good to have the toilet separate from the shower/bathroom. Only issue was the lack of space in the cabin; enough space for two seats would have been as benefit.
