Review of Le Ponant deck 6 (old Deck2-Saint Barth)
Saint Barth Deck houses the Lobby (sized 280 ft2 / 26 m2), the Reception Desk (24-hour guest relations, shore excursions/tours, purser services) and the Sickbay/Infirmary (medical facility).
The fore-located Karukera Restaurant was the ship's Main Dining Room (sized 925 ft2 / 86 m2, capacity 64 seats) serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
Salon Emeraude/Lounge & Bar (sized 795 ft2 / 74 m2) had capacity 64 seats and a separate bar area (sized 260 ft2 / 24 m2).
Salon Saphir/Lounge (sized 260 ft2 / 24 m2) doubled as Lecture Hall and served Ponant's enrichment program with daily lectures and media presentations related to the current cruise itinerary (destinations, ports, shore excursions). The Lounge was equipped with a large HDTV and Internet-connected computers.
The aft-located Marina Platform serves watersports activities (glass-bottomed kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, paddle-boarding) and offers direct access to the Zodiacs (large-capacity inflatable boats/RIBs) used for landings, close-to-shore cruising and tendering in destinations without wharves (piers or quays).
