Hello everyone,

It looks like Ponant Cruise Lines does not have a regular CC 'cruise line roll call'. Does anyone know how to start a roll call in this situation?

We have read the CC Antarctica postings and have learned a lot of great info. If you have any additional info to share about Ponant, L'Austral or a similar repositioning cruise (Ushuaia to Montevideo), we would appreciate it.

Thank you,

Lori and Raul

Check out the Trip Advisor forum for Antarctica. Look at the FAQs on the right. https://www.tripadvisor.ca/ShowForum...dventures.html

There have been lots of posts about Ponant.

Hello Suncityga, We are going on a similar Ponant sailing aboard the Le Soleal in late January 2018, so will post of our experience here when we return. Your countries and continents in your signature could have been ours, so we may be of similar minds.
Happy Travels, Terry!

Hi Terry, thank you and we look forward to learning from your experiences on LeSoleal in 2018.

Agree about possibly similar minds, we do have a lot of previous cruise/trip matches... Baltic, Greek Islands/Turkey, Rhine Christmas Markets, Alaska, Australia/New Zealand, Tahiti/Polynesia and land trips!

Happy Travels to you!
