A LIFE-CHANGING VACAYA LUXE EXPERIENCE AWAITS

Le Boreal, like Sisterships L’Austral, Le Soléal, and Le Lyrial, epitomizes the unique feel and atmosphere of the ships of the Ponant fleet. Subtly combining luxury, intimacy, and serene well-being, the ship has been designed to offer her guests both moments of conviviality and spaces conducive to peaceful tranquility and a sense of escape and getting away from it all. Her exterior and interior lines testify to the ingeniousness and refinement with which the Sisterships have been designed.

Le Boreal was built in 2010 and has led the way among Ponant’s expedition ships for over a decade. She is a stunning vessel with sleek lines and an unusual dark-gray hull that makes her truly stand out. Le Boreal is decidedly upscale and unashamedly French. She’s guaranteed to take your breath away.

 

 

WHEN YOU CHOOSE A PONANT EXPEDITION CRUISE WITH VACAYA,
YOU’RE CHOOSING COMFORT, REFINEMENT, & DISCOVERY.

 

BUILT FOR EXPEDITIONS

Le Boreal is purpose built as an expedition vessel with a higher ice-class and advanced navigation tools that allow her to ply Earth’s polar regions. We believe that as an explorer you need an “expedition base-camp” that is not only practical, but luxurious, as well – something that combines all-oceans capabilities with safety, flexibility, and environmental friendliness. Le Boreal was selected by VACAYA because she’s simply the best expedition ship imaginable.


 

STATEROOMS

122 elegantly designed staterooms and spacious suites boast a warm and contemporary interior design by Jean-Philippe Nuel. The designer took direct inspiration from the destinations and cultures explored during Ponant’s stopovers and then punctuated the design with beautiful ethnic touches.


 

RESTAURANTS

Faithful to Ponant’s commitment to spreading the French way of life around the world, they always pay special attention to the meals they serve throughout the day. Ponant’s talented chefs craft high-end menus so you can enjoy the delights of a refined table. They share their passion for premium produce with guests, enriched with the inspiring flavors of the region.

The main lounge can accommodate all guests for VACAYA’s social activities both day and night.
