m.s. Le Lyrial

Join us for this exceptional eight-day voyage aboard the newly launched, state-of-the-art Five-Star Small Ship m.s. Le Lyrial featuring several of the most unique and breathtaking ports of Southern Europe. Our comprehensive itinerary features up to seven impressive UNESCO World Heritage sites that preserve the fascinating cultures left in the wake of the Phoenicians, Romans, Carthaginians and Moors. Cruise from the ancient Spanish cities of Málaga and Cartagena to the stunning islands of Sardinia and Sicily and conclude with the classical ruins of Rome. Choose to admire the grandeur along Italy’s extraordinary Amalfi Coast on an optional excursion. Culinary expert Kristine Kidd, former editor of Bon Appétit magazine, further enhances our voyage with exclusive onboard C´est Bon! CULINARY TRADITIONS lectures celebrating the cuisines and wines of our ports of call.

The m.s. Le Lyrial exemplifies the advantages of Five-Star, small ship cruising: elegant accommodations and an exclusive itinerary carefully crafted with a specially arranged excursion in each port. The m.s. Le Lyrial features only 110 Suites and Staterooms with distinctive French sophistication and has the ability to dock in small ports of call inaccessible to larger vessels, so there is no waiting in long lines for tenders and touring.

Plan to further extend your travel with the Alluring Andalusia Pre-Cruise Option, featuring three captivating cities in the heart of Andalusia: the artistic, coastal city of Marbella; the medieval city of Granada with its architectural gem, the Alhambra—a UNESCO World Heritage site; and the breathtaking hilltop town of Ronda, where modern bullfighting originated. The Eternal Classics of Rome Post-Cruise Option highlights the UNESCO World Heritage site ruins of the ancient Roman Empire, St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s celebrated Sistine Chapel.

I encourage you to make your plans early for this one-of-a-kind cruise itinerary and great travel value.
