Discover L'Austral, a luxury expedition cruise ship sailing the globe's most spectacular destinations in style. Explore the best of Antarctica, South America, Europe, the Arctic, Asia and the South Pacific. 

Chic and elegant, with a yacht-like ambiance, L'Austral, is the fruit of Italian ship building and French service and sophistication. A superb mega-yacht with 132 cabins, L'Austral links tradition and innovation, cruising to worldwide destinations in luxury. Launched in 2011,  L'Austral remains faithful to her philosophy - to create a unique atmosphere, a subtle blend of luxury, intimacy and well-being. L'Austral gives passengers the feeling they are on a private yacht and give them access to harbors and coves that large cruise ships can't access.

The social areas have everything you may desire including a swimming pool, spa, lounge, theater, exercise room, and a panoramic terrace. The main restaurant serves French and international cuisine accompanied by fine wines served by attentive French wait staff. The outdoor dining area, the "Grill" features buffet-style cuisine with panoramic views. 

Your luxurious stateroom reflects authentic French elegance and sophistication and includes minibar and private bathroom in each suite to complement the comfortable accommodations. Standard staterooms measure 290 square feet (18 square meters) with luxurious upgrades featuring the Owner's Suite at 485 square feet (45 square meters).

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
