Cruise passengers were left stranded near Chile following damage to the ship during the voyage.
While travelling through the Kirke Canal, the bottom of the ship was damaged with scratches to the propeller, according to Chilean divers who investigated the incident.
Lubricant oil was also lost following the incident which left 222 passengers stranded, according to Merco Press.
They managed to sail to Puerto Natales despite suggestions of emergency services towing the ship.
A number of passengers were flown home after the trip was ended days earlier after being driven to the airport.
The cruise ship is to remain in the dock before being able to be fixed with new parts.
Ponant said to Express.co.uk in a statement: “On Wednesday 14 November 2018, Le Soléal, which at the time was under the control of a Chilean pilot, on board to comply with maritime regulations, suffered a technical incident as she was sailing through the Kirke Passage in Chile, and one of her propellers was damaged.
“Following this incident, which was not serious and had no impact on the safety of the guests and crew on board, the ship made her way, by her own means and unaided, to Puerto Natales where it is currently moored.
“The programme of the cruise under way is currently being reviewed. Le Soléal will be taken out of service temporarily to assess damage and carry out any necessary repairs.”
A cruise holiday planned for November 20 has been cancelled due to the incident, however, a cruise holiday on November 30 will go ahead as planned.
“To date, the cruise line plans to cancel one cruise: the one that was due to depart Ushuaia on 20 November 2018,” the statement continued.
“All of the guests affected by this cancellation will be contacted by PONANT within 48 hours and will be offered alternatives along with goodwill gestures.”
“Further technical investigations will be carried out while the ship is out of service. The ship will be back in service on 30 November 2018 for a departure from Ushuaia.”
Captain Pedro Herrera told the Merco Press at the time: “Passengers on the cruise are safe and in good condition and spirit.”
A different cruise ship experienced severe damages after a technical error caused it to lilt while travelling.
The Carnival Cruise ship heavily tilted because of the error, resulting in passengers screaming and crying onboard.
One passenger said it was “pure chaos” as crockery and tables broke with the swaying.
Carnival Cruise said in a statement there was “never any issue with the safe operation of the ship”.
Passengers continued on their journey with the ship remaining operational.
