L’Austral Iceland Cruise: Embarkation Highlights

Hafnarfjorour is the port town where Iceland cruises sail from. Compagnie du Ponant runs what they call, “Luxury small yacht cruises” around the world. L’Austral has 132 all outside view, suite cabins and carries from 224-264 passengers. There are elevators, two restaurants, spa, etc.

Tauck Tours books at least 2/3 of the L’Austral for their “Land of Fire and Ice” tour” (other passengers are European), and likes to boast that this one-week cruise has sold out five years in a row. All meals, tours, unlimited alcoholic and soft drinks, the cruise, and all gratuities was included in the Tauck price.

L’Austral is gorgeous, crew wonderful, cabins huge and food…it was a good five pound gain for me. Fabulous ship and I hope you enjoy the umpteen videos still to be uploaded on this partial circumnavigation of Iceland.
