Review of Le Boreal

Launched in 2010, Le Boreal is the 1st in a series of four identical Compagnie du Ponant cruise ships, together with L'AustralLe Soleal and Le Lyrial. All these vessels feature ice-strengthened hulls, sleek-design superstructures, Zodiacs for ship-to-shore landing and coastal cruising itinerary routes (featuring overnight stays, long port days and late evening departures).

History - construction & ownership

Compagnie du Ponant (CDP is a French cruise ship operator. Ponant company was founded by Jean-Emmanuel Sauvé, Philippe Videau, and other officers of the French Merchant Navy in April 1988 and launched the first French cruise ship. CDP currently operates five ships, all of which under the French flag. Compagnie du Ponant is dedicated to soft adventure cruising. Half of its fleet is based in Antarctica from December to March. It offers offbeat itineraries around the whole world, especially in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Asia.

The 10,944-ton, 264-passenger cruise ship Le Boreal was launched in May 2010 and impresses with elegance, personality, eco-friendly technologies and high standards. The sailing vessel was planned for the French market and looks more like a big private yacht rather than a cruise ship. Le Boreal was pronounced "Best New ship of the Year " in 2010. The reward was received from the European Cruiser Association. This impressive mega-yacht was designed with 132 cabins and was constructed in the Italian shipyard Fincantieri. On board guests could enjoy luxury of the French style created by Jean-Philippe Nuel.

On November 18, 2015 an engine fire on Ponant luxury cruise yacht Le Boreal caused hundreds of travelers to be evacuated while the vessel was sailing on an Antarctica cruise. The 264-passenger cruise ship issued a distress call just after 2 a.m. while close to Cape Dolphin, north of the Falkland Islands. 90 of the ship's 347 passengers and crew were air lifted to safety from life rafts, while the rest were transferred to another ship. The Falkland Island Government Emergency Services responded to the fire, in collaboration with local vessel agents and British Forces South Atlantic Islands Emergency Services. HMS Clyde changed course in order to help the evacuation. No one was injured in the incident. The ship had just started a 15-night round trip Antarctica sailing from Ushuaia, Argentina, on November 15. The cruise was supposed to visit South Georgia before landing on the continent's peninsula and visiting Deception Island. The remainder of the cruise has been canceled. 

After the engine room fire in November 2015, Le Boreal was back in service on May 24, 2016. Ponant's 264-passenger yacht had been undergoing repairs at Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa, following a blaze that broke out while the vessel was sailing off the Falklands. Ponant originally hoped its ship would resume sailings from Lisbon on May 9. However, a company statement noted that Le Boreal would sail from Glasgow later in the month. Ponant has carried out other work on the ship in addition to repairing the fire damage, and given it up some updates.

Cruise itinerary program

Le Boreal itinerary program is based on cruises in Northern Europe, including Iceland and the Baltic Sea region. The ship also sails in Alaska and Greenland.

Cabins

Most Le Boreal staterooms are 200-sq.foot Prestige cabins (92). There are a total of 132 staterooms in 9 categories. The largest aboard Le Boreal is the Owner’s Suite (485 ft2). All staterooms have been decorated by French designers, offer individually controlled air conditioning, flat-screen TVs, DVD/CD player, twin beds, minibar and electronic safe.

Dining options - Food & Drinks

Le Boreal cruise ship is small enough and provides a truly intimate experience. This special yacht is ideally suited to visit ports of call that bigger ships cannot reach.

  • Le Boreal cruise ship is the first in a three yachts' series commissioned by Compagnie du Ponant. Her identical sisters are L’Austral (2011), Le Soleal (2013) and Le Lyrial (2015).
  • Compagnie du Ponant is originally French-owned, aimed exclusively at the French cruising market. The whole ambience on board Le Boreal is French and chic. Black-and-white photo art of Philip Plisson lines the corridors, glittering Swarovski crystals light up the atrium. The passengers are well-heeled and experienced.
  • Le Boreal ship differs from other luxury cruise vessels with adventurous itineraries. The three sisters are with ice-strengthened hulls, and can sail to the Arctic and Antarctica, each of carrying a fleet of Zodiacs for sightseeing. The Ponant line emphasizes on coastal cruising, with long port days and late departures.
  • Fun fact is, that the Le Boreal yacht was used in the 3rd episode of the "Mighty Ships" TV series (season 5) and was shown taking tourists to the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia.
  • Le Boreal was the first France-flagged marine vessel (together with the fleetmate Le Soleal) with a Northwest Passage Cruise itinerary. The unique itinerary started on August 26, 2013, when the ship left Kangerlussuaq Greenland to arrive in Anadyr Russia (Siberia) on September 16. Among the ports of call along the route were Beechey Island and King William Island (Gjoa Haven). During these voyages, Ponant cruise passengers enjoyed seeing hundreds of beluga whales and narwhales, and around 60 polar bears. Charles Hedrich (French sportsman and adventurer) was also there as special guest - being the world's first man to solo cross the Northwest Passage (in September 2009) in a rowing boat.
