L'Austral Cruises 2013

L'Australs cocktail bar

L'Austral's welcoming reception area

The sleek, elegant L'Austral combines function and style to give passengers a taste of luxury with true French flair. Built in the style of superb mega-yachts, this 132 state room/ suite ship is streamlined enough to access smaller river ports while letting in the light and sea air through large arched windows. While aboard, you will experience a unique and subtle blend of luxury, intimacy and well-being in an elegant, flexible setting.

L'Austral Deck

The interior is a perfect balance between chic and casual, thoughtfully designed to make you feel as though you are on your own private yacht. Cabins are geared towards personal comfort, with king or twin beds, WiFi Internet access, TV, minibar and individually-controlled air conditioning. Details such as French bath products and desks with stationery add a personal touch that will make you feel at home.

Public spaces are spacious and comfortable for relaxing, socializing, dining and soaking up fresh air and sunshine. Enjoy uninterrupted sea views from the Grill Restaurant, lounges, and Open-air Bar, all of which provide outdoor seating. The Gastronomic Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in the rich tradition of French and international cuisine.

Finish off your meal with fine wine or head to the Main Lounge for cocktails and dancing. Live entertainment and music are provided at the theatre and in the Main Lounge. Guests can also take advantage of fitness equipment, massage rooms, and relaxation rooms.
