We've had three cruise ships on our "to review" list this year: Silversea's Silver Spirit, Compagnie du Ponant's L'Austral, and Uniworld's River Baroness. The Silversea review was published in June, the Uniworld review should be online by late October, and the Compagnie du Ponant review--featuring the line's newest ship--is now on our cruising site at Europeforcruisers.com.
The illustrated review describes the ship, accommodations, food, and other topics, including the question "Is Compagnie du Ponant right for you?" It will be followed in late August by a photo gallery that will include a ship's tour, gastronomic photos, and a day-by-day photo diary of our cruise's roundtrip Croatian itinerary from Venice.
