Cruise in Style
Jump aboard the exquisite Le Lyrial, the newest ship in Ponant’s fleet, inspired by the destinations that the yacht visits with delicate shades of grey-blue to mimic the Polar ice-caps and the vivid turquoise blue found in secret Mediterranean coves.
Cabins range from 18sqm to 54sqm suites, with Internet access, 24hr room service and a range of public facilities, including two restaurants, a panoramic lounge and open-air bar on offer to all passengers.
For those South Africans seeking an exclusive cruising experience, Ponant is offering several itineraries that touch South African shores.
The Southern Islands
