On the Grill Restaurant, you will have the opportunity to eat outside and enjoy buffet lunch and themed dinners.

Life aboard the L'Austral
Find a special ambiance aboard the L'Austral, as well as the feeling that you are on board your own yacht.

Whether you want to join other guests in the theater or games area (Wii™ consoles, etc), or relax on your own in a quiet corner of the library, L'Austral has been designed to meet the needs of every guest. Fitted with the latest equipment (Kinesis Wall, running machine) and the luxurious Beauty Center on L'Austral welcomes you for some unforgettable moments of relaxation and pampering.

Everything has been done to preserve the independence of each guest to suit their personal tastes: lounges for lectures and shows, the spa, but also more intimate spaces such as the library and internet corner. Comfortable cabins, nearly all with private balcony, are available for families either as triples or as communicating cabins. There is also a games area with Wii™ consoles, children’s menus, and baby-sitting service. Just as if you were on a private yacht, your time is your own to do as you please.

Smooth and quiet to provide maximum comfort, L'Austral has also earned the international “green ship” label for her numerous eco-friendly features (dynamic positioning system to avoid having to drop anchor, waste water treatment on board, reduced fuel consumption, etc).
