    From the English Shores to Ireland

    Cruise Northern Europe

    from 17 May 2020 to 24 May 2020
    8 days / 7 nights

    Departure Port : London
    Arrival Port : Dublin

    Ship : LE BOREAL

    • Ref : B170520

    Between the Channel and the Irish Sea, set off with PONANT aboard Le Boréal for an 8-day cruise to discover Celtic lands of legend and romance.

    Your first port of call will be the gateway to England, Dover, and its famous white limestone cliffs that inspire a great many painters and poets.

    You will then sail along the Jurassic Coast. Listed as World Heritage by UNESCO due to the importance of its geology, this coastal region will offer you an exceptional panorama composed of spectacular rock formations, lush hills, small, wild inlets and gorgeous sand or pebble beaches.

    One port of call will be at the Isles of Scilly, a strange little archipelago whose landscapes seem to have come straight out of Enid Blyton's famous story, The Rockingdown Mystery. Here, long sandy beaches stand alongside green fields, while ruins of old castles stand proud on hilltops.

    Next, the ship will make its way to Glengarriff, in Ireland. This village surrounded by nature is blessed with a very mild climate, and the temperate waters that bathe the Beara Peninsula allow rhododendrons, azaleas, gorse and fuchsias to thrive in the local gardens.

    Before making your way to Dublin, where you will disembark, Le Boréal will take you to Kinsale, a charming little port sheltered within the Bandon Estuary.

    LE BOREAL

    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”.

    Nestling in the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean, at the south west tip of Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly form a small British island chain whose climate, landscapes and lifestyle are unlike any other and seem to have come straight from an Enid Blyton story. Here, everything resembles a tropical paradise. The long sandy beaches run alongside lush green meadows teeming with semi-exotic flowers, whilst the ruins of ancient castles loom from the tops of the hills. Veritable havens of peace that inspired the legendary Avalon of King Arthur, they are today listed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the rugged coastline plays host to wildlife that is as varied as it is exceptional, including the very rare Atlantic grey seal.

Not far from here, the majestic O’Connell bridge leads you to the avenue with the same name, on which Spire, a luminous contemporary sculpture presides.
