Our guests say it best!

"On board the Lyrial, voyage to the heart of the Adriatic leaving from and returning to Venice: FABULOUS! Beautiful vessel, very "classy"! An efficient crew, discreet, always smiling and very kind. The captain was accessible, entertaining and educative during his welcome and his presentation on the bridge (an invitation that I personally very much appreciated and shall remember!). Perfect gastronomy with a special mention for pastries and bakery. Hats off to the dancers of the "Paris C Show". This was our first PONANT cruise. On returning I have only one wish: to leave with you again!"

Alain B.

Le Lyrial Adriatic

"Travelling with PONANT is a delight . I always look forward to departing when I plan a cruise. I am a lover of the great outdoors and cruising in general on the seven seas. I'm not sure if it's perhaps the effervescent atmosphere of summertime cruises, but they're my favourite. Calm in the corridors and on the bridge, a joy during meals or afternoon tea, excellent socialising with other guests, glass of Champagne in hand. The aperitifs are a treat, the hostesses and stewards are always very attentive. What more could you need! PONANT is the ultimate cruise. Have a good trip!"

Michel M.

Le Ponant Ocean Voyage

"We took a cruise on Le Lyrial this year - what can we say? Fabulous! I’ve never seen a Commander who was so willing to spend time with guests, the entire crew (housekeeping, receptionists, bartenders, waiters, etc.), delicious meals, shore visits and a special mention for the dancers (the Dream Team) with whom we’ve kept in contact because it was our first time with PONANT but it definitely won’t be the last! Thanks to everyone."
