Our opinion: Sailing under the French flag, Le Boreal is one of the most luxurious expedition ships that operates in the Antarctic waters. With an overall length of 466 feet, this vessel offers greater comfort and wellbeing for its passengers while maintaining an intimate atmosphere. In line with French gastronomy, both restaurants offer delicious gourmet and international cuisine. Le Boreal is one of the few expedition ships that let you enjoy the magnificent landscapes of Antarctica from your private balcony.
