Ponant L'Austral to dry dock in Manila. Cruise interrupted.

The 264-passenger luxury expedition vessel, L'Austral will enter dry dock in Manila to undergo a full inspection for hull damage after two separate accidents earlier this year, according to reports in Cruise Critic.

The report goes on to say "L'Austral altered the itinerary after its stop at the coral reef of Rajah Ampat, Indonesia, and headed directly to Manila, where passengers have been moved to hotels. During the three-day "stopover", the line is providing complimentary five-star accommodation and land-based activities, with three Ponant executives flying in from France to assist passengers."
