Sailing between Spain, Cape Verde and Portugal,
PONANT offers you an itinerary at the crossroads of cultures and traditions.
You will set sail aboard
for an L’Austral 11-day cruise leaving from Dakar, the bustling capital of Senegal.
Your discovery of
Cape Verde will start with a port of call in Santiago, the most populated and also the most African of the archipelago’s islands. Further to the north, you will reach São Vicente and visit Mindelo, the cultural capital of Cape Verde, the birthplace of the famous singer of morna, Cesaria Évora.
Your ship will then drop anchor at
Las Palmas, on the island of Gran Canaria. Do not miss the chance to wander through the streets of the historic district of Vegueta, rich in architectural treasures including the Santa Ana cathedral.
Then admire the volcanic landscapes that are so typical of
Lanzarote before sailing to Madeira, the island of the eternal spring. The lively streets of Funchal, its old district, as well as its magnificent botanical garden located on the heights of the town will not fail to delight you.
Your journey around the Atlantic will conclude with a visit to
Lisbon. This city with its nostalgic charm has a unique personality, a blend of tramways, museums and listed buildings.
This superb mega-yacht with 132 cabins is the result of the expertise of the Italian Fincantieri shipyard and French sophistication, as interpreted by designer Jean-Philippe Nuel.
L'Austral remains faithful to our philosophy - to create a unique atmosphere, a subtle blend of luxury, intimacy and well-being.
A sleek silhouette softened by elegantly smooth contours and large, arched windows opening up to the sea and the light: so many features come together to give L'Austral her distinctive shape. Precious materials, discreet elegance and a perfect balance between chic and casual, combine to make you feel as if you are on your own private yacht. A design blending tradition and innovation, where a nautical mood has been subtly recreated. Precious materials in smoothing neutral tones are brought to life with splashes of cheerful reds. So many personal touches create the spirit of a "private yacht".
You will encounter unique itineraries, calls inaccessible to large ships, chic and elegant yacht-like ambiance, raffined and personnalized service as well as gastronomic cuisine.
