But don't let me forget I was here in Chile for work...
Le Boréal is a cruise ship owned and operated by the French cruise line company Ponant. She was built in 2010, has 132 cabins and suites for 264 passengers and 140 crew members, and was put into service on May 6, 2010.
That year, the vessel won the award for "Best Newcomer of the Year GOLD" from the European Cruiser Association.
Le Boréal was featured in episode three of the fifth season of the TV series Mighty Ships. The ship was shown taking tourists to South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula.
On November 18, 2015, Le Boréal suffered a major engine room fire which caused the loss of all power and left her drifting. The captain ordered the ship, with 347 passengers and crew, to be abandoned early in the morning. A distress call was issued just after 2AM while it was near Cape Dolphin, the northerly point of East Falkland, Falkland Islands. All passengers and crew from Le Boréal were rescued by helicopters and other vessels in the area, and looked after on the Falkland Islands.
Le Boréal was loaded onto HLV Kang Sheng Kou in Punta Arenas, Chile in January 2016, to be transported to Genoa, Italy, for repairs and renovations.
