Leisure and Public Areas
Life on board
Whether you choose a Mediterranean cruise or a voyage into the heart of the Antarctic ice floes, you will always enjoy the exceptional levels of service for which PONANT is renowned. Our excellent service, customised and attentive, will give you the privileged feeling of sailing aboard your own private yacht.
To ensure you experience a real tailor-made cruise, all of our experienced staff will be fully available for you.
Leisure and Public Areas
Our ships* have many spaces designed to offer passengers privileged moments of relaxation and comfort.
* As Le Ponant is laid out differently due to its smaller size, it may not have all facilities.
All our ships (except Le Ponant) have an onboard spa. Equipped with massage booths, hammam, a hair salon and fitness room that has panoramic ocean views, this well-being centre offers a large range of luxury treatments in association with the French beauty house SOTHYS Paris ™.
Pool & Sun Deck
The spacious, comfortable outdoor areas of our ships offer superb ocean panoramas. A heated seawater pool and solarium are located on the uppermost desk of our sisterships (Le Boréal, L’Austral, Le Soléal and Le Lyrial), and Le Ponant has a 400 m² Sun Deck.
Lounges & Bars
Different lounges enable passengers to socialise and share convivial moments during their cruise. Discover the following on our four sisterships: the main lounge, an ideal place to meet over a drink and watch daytime or evening events; the panoramic lounge, an intimate piano-bar with a unique view of the horizon; and the outdoor bar, an atmospheric spot that has access to the pool and solarium.
The theatre is an entertainment venue where passengers gather for events and lectures. During the day, there are talks by naturalists, lecturers, experienced guides and specialists. In the evening, shows, musical performances or film screenings are held in the theatre.
On board all our ships, a shop is open during sailing. It offers a selection of presents and souvenirs: clothing, jewellery, beauty products, postcards and accessories.
A choice of books and board games is available for you on board all our ships. The library on Deck 6 on Le Boréal, L’Austral, Le Soléal and Le Lyrial is also equipped with computers with Wi-Fi. On the deck below, you will find an image and photo corner, as well as our Kids Club offering games and a Wii™ console. All cabins have direct access to On-Demand Videos.
