Staterooms & Suites
There are no staterooms available for booking. Please contact our cruise advisors.
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.
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.
Port of call & excursions
The information below is current but subject to change at any time without advance notice from government authorities. Please consult your respective government agencies for visa and health information.
Warning about the use of drones: the use of drones aboard PONANT ships, whether they are sailing at sea, at a port of call or anchored, is strictly forbidden. The use of drones on land in the Arctic and Antarctic regions is also strictly forbidden by international polar regulations. In other regions, it may be possible to use drones on land if permission has been obtained from the relevant authorities of each country and each region travelled through, as well as a pilot’s licence that should be obtained from your home country. Passengers are responsible for obtaining these permits; they should be able to present them at all times. Passengers who do not obtain these authorisations expose themselves to the risk of legal proceedings.
Passport valid for at least six (6) months beyond the completion of your trip. Passport must contain at least two completely clear, blank, unused visa pages for each visa required, not including any amendment pages. Visa pages with stains or ink from other pages in the passport are not usable. Guests who deviate from the scheduled embarkation or disembarkation port should research the foreign entry requirements for the port country. Due to government regulations, regrettably, Ponant will have to deny boarding to any guest who fails to obtain the appropriate travel documentation for this trip.

A graduate from the École du Louvre and Paris University I Panthéon-Sorbonne in history of art, Serge Legat rose rapidly as a speaker on behalf of the Ministry of Tourism and lecturer for National Museums.
As Professor of Art History at the Paris-Val-de Marne Architecture School (now incorporated into the Paris-Val-de-Seine Architecture School) and IESA (international studies in history and the business of art & culture) in Paris, he is much appreciated by students for the clarity and precision of his teaching.
He is the official lecturer for Les Amis du Club de l’Art and works closely with many provincial museums, and prestigious institutions in the Île-de-France region like Polo de Paris and Golf de Saint-Cloud.
Serge Legat is regularly invited by historian Franck Ferrand to appear on radio and television as the expert in ancient and modern art. He also regularly contributes alongside Stéphane Bern to Secrets d’Histoire on France 2 and recently to a programme dedicated to the secrets of St Peter’s Basilica in Rome on RMC’s discovery channel.
Serge Legat is author of a CD-ROM on Leonardo da Vinci and the Mona Lisa (Léonard de Vinci et la Joconde), published by Réunion des Musées Nationaux in 1998. In 2018, he was one of the writers on a collective work entitled Coups de Chœur (Éditions Tallandier).
