Cruising smoothly and sleekly through the water, Le Lyrial epitomises the elegance of the French flag that it sails under. There’s no need to infer offhandedness from its chic grace though: climb aboard Ponant’s newest addition you’ll experience the welcome of its warm and intimate atmosphere.

Composed of just 122 staterooms and suites with balconies, Le Lyrial joined Ponant’s luxury fleet in April 2015. Enjoy a decor that’s been inspired from the ship’s destinations and shaded in a subtle palette of blues that range from the delicate grey-blue of the Polar ice to splashes of the vivid turquoise blue found in Mediterranean coves. You’ll also be greeted by white Corian counters in the lobby contrasting with the warmth of leather and a central enamelled sculpture inspired by the sea.

Le Lyrial can cover both shorter and longer itineraries that include Ushuaia, the Drake Passage, the Antarctic Peninsula, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and the Scotia Sea.
