    Off the Venezuelan coast, you will discover the special atmosphere of the Dutch Caribbean. Willemstad, the capital of Curaçao, will reveal its charming colonial architecture.

    You will end this cruise in the heart of the Caribbean. From the island of Saint Lucia to Martinique, this faraway archipelago will dazzle you with its colour palette and idyllic landscapes.

    LE BORÉAL

    Like her sisterships, Le Boréal embodies the subtle alliance between luxury, intimacy and wellbeing which is PONANT’s signature. The elegance of her exterior and interior lines and her intimate size (only 132 staterooms and suites) make this a rare and innovative yacht on the cruise market.

    Interior Design
    Superior materials, discreet elegance and a tasteful décor reflect a nautical mood subtly revisited. Aboard, soothing neutral grey tones are enlivened by splashes of red, our signature theme linking tradition and innovation to create personal touches in the spirit of a “private yacht”.

    Colón

    Emabarkation 14/04/2018 from 16H00 to 17H00 . Departure 14/04/2018 at 18H00 .

    Colón is the second largest city in Panama, at the Caribbean entrance of the Panama Canal. Colón is today an important port, and the free trade zone created in 1953 contributed greatly to the development of the city.  Colón was founded in 1850 by Americans working on the Panama railroad connecting the Atlantic and Pacific coasts through the isthmus of Panama; the city rapidly overshadowed the older Caribbean ports of Panama when the canal opened.

    Holandes Cayes is among the islands of the San Blas archipelago, a string of coral islands that graces the heart of the Caribbean Sea. Some 378 islands and cays covering an area of 260 square kilometres offer travellers a multitude of natural and cultural treasures.

    Founded in 1522 at the time of the conquistadors, Cartagena has preserved the traces of its rich colonial past. Its imposing ramparts are further proof of the tumultuous history of this city. As the site for storing the gold looted from the Aztec and Inca empires before it was taken to Spain, the city was also frequently the target of pirates and privateers. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, the romanticism of this city with its narrow streets and colourful façades will not fail to charm you. Set sail in the footsteps of the Spanish sailors who conquered Central America and relive this page of history during your stopover here.

    On the west coast of the island of St Lucia, Marigot Bay has been described as モthe most beautiful bay in the Caribbeanヤ. The picturesque marina, steep rainforested hills and deep blue waters have provided the backdrop for movies and the palm-studded beach is a Caribbean dream.

    Fort de France

    Disembarkation 21/04/2018 at 00H00 .

    Located on the western coast of Martinique, Fort-de-France will amaze you by the splendour of its bay, a magnificent cut-out in the coastline, considered as one of the most beautiful in the world. At the harbour mouth, on its strip of land, fort Saint-Louis overlooks the capital city of Martinique. If you climb up to it, you can see some breath-taking views. Saint Louis Cathedral and the Schoelcher library bear witness to a secular history, intimately linked to the island’s story. Why not try some fresh coconut at the colourful Grand Marché. Two really pleasant places you can take a breather in, right in the heart of the city, are the garden of Balata and the Aimé Césaire park.
