Luxury Ship


Luxury Cruise

Innovative and expressive, Le Boreal is a superb luxury mega-yacht, offering a serene experience in the remote realm of Antarctica. The elegant interiors designed by Jean-Philippe Nuel are distinctly French. While the landscapes outside are rugged and raw, the on-board experience remains faithful to the Ponant philosophy – a subtle blend of luxury, intimacy and well-being.

There's an emphasis on space and many of the staterooms and suites feature a private balcony and separate living areas. Public areas are stylishly appointed, from French-inspired restaurants serving haute cuisine worthy the worlds finest, to an open-air deck and bar area that delivers evocative vistas. It's all complemented by discreet attentive service that's more akin to a boutique five-star hotel than an Antarctic yacht.

Le Boreal combines tradition and innovation to create personal touches akin to travelling on your own private yacht. Yet this is also an explorer's vessel with exceptional guides taking you on an adventure to the icy continent.
