Solo cruisers looking to enjoy the comfort and privacy of their own stateroom without the added singlesupplement can now book staterooms or suites on the French-flagged cruise lineCompagnie du Ponant.
The expedition line offers close to 30 cruises aboard the line’s three 132-stateroom sister ships, Le Soleal, Le Boreal and L’Austral, with free single supplement.
Staterooms on all three ships are double occupancy or larger, all have ocean views and most have a private balcony. Compagnie du Ponant’s all-inclusive pricing includes all meals, open bar, gratuities, port charges, taxes and fees. Select itineraries also include round-trip air.
Founded in 1988 by Jean-Emmanuel Sauvée and a dozen merchant navy officers Compagnie du Ponant has four ships flying the French flag that are able to sail in waters inaccessible to larger ships. Le Boréal, L’Austral and Le Soléal each have 132-staterooms and suites and Le Ponant, 32 staterooms. Its fifth luxury yacht, Le Lyrial, begins sailing in spring 2015.
