Spark your wanderlust... set your sights on a new horizon

and find your "Joie de vivre" with PONANT Yacht Cruises and Expeditions

"Endless vistas over a sun kissed Mediterranean Sea, ancient ports of call along the Adriatic Coast and an atmosphere of absolute luxury... just another perfect day onboard Le Lyrial". Sailing from Venice in May this year, eWaterways Marketing Manager, Amy Sharpe, comments on her cruise experience on board Le Lyrial:

Le Lyrial, named after the Lyra star, is a fitting name for a vessel that is the brightest and newest in the PONANT fleet. Launched in May this year, this luxury mega yacht caters for just over 200 passengers and offers a cruise experience unlike any other. A combination of french elegance, chic styling and incredible attention to detail gives a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere the moment you board your cruise.

With over 25 years of experience in the luxury cruise industry, PONANT are leaders in creating exceptional yachting itineraries all over the world. From the far reaches of Antarctica, to the sunnier climes of the Caribbean, from Europe's bejewelled cities of the Mediterranean to the exotic destinations of the Far East, PONANT have come to symbolise a growing trend for smaller, more personal experiences of cruising.

Once aboard, there are no rigid timetables to be adhered to, no forced itineraries to be considered - just pure relaxation. The vessel gives a feeling of space and tranquility and has been cleverly designed with beautiful interiors. It is so quiet and stable that you barely realise you are sailing. Every stateroom has been thoughtfully planned to ensure a very comfortable private space. All are outside facing and the majority have their own private balcony.

Dining on a PONANT Yacht cruise is an outstanding presentation of gourmet cuisine and coupled with impeccable service and unlimited complimentary drinks, PONANT are the choice for those seeking an alternative to the larger cruise ships. Whether you choose the heavenly gastronomic restaurant or the less formal Grill restaurant for your meals is entirely up to you! With complimentary fine wines, champagne and beverages included in your cruise price and offered throughout your sailing (even the mini bar is restocked every day!), you are never left wanting!

Onboard services include a first class Spa by leading French brand SOTHYS, a hammam, a fitness suite, swimming pool, hairdresser and beauticians, a luxury goods shop, library, state of the art theatre, photoshop, 2 restaurants, 3 bar areas, live entertainment and most interesting of all - an "Open Bridge" policy, whereby guests are able to visit the working area of the Captain and his Crew - offering a fascinating insight into how this modern vessel is operated.

But more than just 'another cruise holiday', the sublime experience of PONANT will leave you wanting to travel with them time and again to see other stunning destinations around the globe from these wonderful vessels.
