Compagnie du Ponant announce new luxury cruise ship

Compagnie du Ponant has announced a new addition to their fleet of ships, to be called LE LYRIAL. She will be a sister ship to the LE BORÉAL (2010), L'AUSTRAL (2011) and LE SOLÉAL (2013),and will fly the French flag on hr maiden cruise in April 2015.

The interior design has entrusted to interior architect Jean-Philippe Nuel who will create a "yachting" feel inspired by the destinations the company visits and the blue light of the Vega star in the Lyra constellation. The result will be a variation around a palette of blues, ranging from the delicate grey-blue of the polar ice to the vivid turquoise blue found in Mediterranean coves.

LE LYRIAL refers to the Lyra constellation in the northern hemisphere. Its principal star is the blue Vega, one of the brightest stars in the sky.

Compagnie du Ponant has redesigned Deck 6 on LE LYRIAL to accommodate larger suites, which are now up to 55m2 for the Owner's Suite. As a result LE LYRIAL will have 122 staterooms and suites compared to the 132 on LE SOLÉAL, L'AUSTRAL and LE BORÉAL.

Certified a 'clean-ship' like her sister-ships, this exceptional yacht will be cruising round the Mediterranean for her inaugural season, to Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Greece, Turkey and beyond, before heading to the icy shores of Antarctica.
