Ship Type: Luxury Expedition Ship

The sleek, intimate Le Lyrial sails under the French flag and entrances her passengers with her contemporary decor, comfortable suites, and refined ambiance. Her elegant design allows her to be an ideal sailing vessel.

Sailing under the French flag, Le Lyrial is a magnificent ship and features just 122 staterooms and suites with balconies. The magical blue light of the Vega star in the Lyra constellation fills the ship with light. The ship's refined ambiance is enhanced by the quality of the workmanship and materials: white Corian counters in the lobby contrast with the warmth of leather to recall a boat’s hull, while the central sculpture of enamelled pieces takes its inspiration from the sea. In the loungebar, the carpet picks up a tennis stripe theme symbolizing a certain idea of cruising, one synonymous with French elegance and a chic seaside spirit.
