What a fantastic ship! We were there for the historic launch of l'Astral, sister ship to l'Boreal from Compagnie du Ponant.
It was great to see these two super yachts depart side by side from Marseilles port with the fanfare of fireworks, delicious food and champagne like only the French know how.
Both ships offer a contemporary, intimate luxury cruise experience and a wonderful French flair. Itineraries range from scenic sailings around the Mediterranean to expedition cruises to Antarctica.
Some of the cabins have wonderful spaces, including a corner bath and shower...they really do not seem like cruise ship cabins at all.
There are the usual facilities on both l'Boreal and l'Astral including a pool and sundeck, theatre, bar, restaurants and spa. However as these are not super liners they are on a small scale offering a much more intimate and personal experience.
Stay tuned for more details about the launch of Compagnie du Ponant's latest luxury yachts.
