    From Lisbon, the colourful capital situated on the banks of the Tagus River, you will set sail for a 9-day cruise on board Le Lyrial.

    Cadiz in Andalusia will be your first port of call. Built on a rock and surrounded by the sea, it is one of the country’s oldest cities.

    The voyage continues towards Motril and Malaga, with an opportunity to visit the magnificent Alhambra palace in Grenada.

    Then you will head to Morocco’s Tangier, the mythical port of call of so many artists, then Casablanca, the so-called “white city”, where tradition and modernity mingle. Here you will discover the impressive Hassan II Mosque, considered to be one of the largest religious buildings in the world.

    The last port of call of your cruise: the Canary Islands, where you will discover Tenerife.

    LE LYRIAL

    Fourth ship in this superb series loyal to the PONANT spirit, Le Lyrial like her sisterships embodies the subtle alliance between luxury, intimacy and wellbeing which is PONANT’s signature. The elegance of her exterior and interior lines and her intimate size (only 122 staterooms and suites) make this a rare and innovative yacht on the cruise market.

     

    Interior Design
    We have been inspired by the destinations we visit and decided to create a subtle variation around a palette of blues. Ranging from the luminous delicate grey-blue of the Polar ice to splashes of the vivid turquoise blue found in Mediterranean coves, it also includes the blue light of the future pole star.
