As it is an essential part of French culture, gastronomy will naturally have pride of place aboard this new ship. To the back of Deck 4, you will find a 260 m² panoramic restaurant which can accommodate all of our passengers in a single sitting. Designed differently to that on our other ships, this dining area, which opens onto the outside, will have a buffet of salads, desserts and cheeses at your disposal. Our discreet and attentive crew will provide table service for hot meals. In a relaxed atmosphere, an outdoor grill on Deck 3 will serve grilled meats with a variety of salads and desserts.

Public Areas:
Le Jacques Cartier has many common areas that are designed and equipped to meet all of your needs while preserving the intimacy of each passenger.

The reception area includes a reception/concierge desk, an excursions desk, the ship’s administrative services, the sales office, manned by the Guest Relations Officer, the boutique which sells clothing, jewelry, beauty products, postcards and various accessories and toilets accessible to passengers with reduced mobility.

A new hydraulic platform with adjustable height provides easier boarding than on any other cruise ship, easier Zodiac embarkation and disembarkation for expeditions, easier access to the sea for swimming and practicing various water sports such as kayaking or paddle-boarding.

The pool deck offers a pool with a panoramic view, equipped with a counter-current swimming system, a pleasant solarium, an outdoor bar and lounge with armchairs and sofas.

A 200 m² main lounge which can accommodate all passengers to share convivial moments and to host activities organized during the day or evening.

Lastly, a theatre that seats 188, equipped with the latest sound and lighting technology, and a LED wall as the stage backdrop, for the projection of high-resolution images and videos.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
