What To Expect

An expedition with PONANT guarantees top quality comfort, despite exploring some of the most remote places on the planet. The comfort of the ship and your cabin, personalised and attentive service, refined gastronomy… we’re proud of the atmosphere we create onboard and strive to always make you feel as though you’re on your own private yacht. The interior design of the 132 staterooms and suites of the Le Soléal features a range of entirely soft and gentle colours, with greys and whites combining with natural wood. The Le Soléal thus brings to mind the looks and styles of the world of yachting, whilst at the same time adding a touch of sophistication.

Our fleet of Zodiac® inflatable boats make landing ashore safe and enjoyable, and enable guests to get as close as possible to coral reefs, waterfalls and fauna. Designed to accommodate small groups of 10 passengers, they are easy to step on to from the marina platform at the rear of your ship. Our inclusive Zodiac® and shore excursions are unforgettable experiences.

Our experts are specialists in the regions we visit, these passionate and knowledgeable professionals will add a cultural, environmental and historical dimension to your outings and will point out nearby flora and fauna, local cultures and natural phenomena. As recognised professionals, they always make scouting missions in the field before organising safe outings and shore visits for passengers, taking advantage of the opportunities that arise during any expedition. The enrichment doesn’t stop there though, with a series of cultural, scientific or historical presentations back onboard.
