For a brief respite from the heat and bustle, go to the Institut Francais in the centre of town. We find it a bit of a haven; lovely gardens to enjoy over a coffee.

The Ship

Your home from home

Ponant Cruises - Le Lyrial
Ponant - Le Lyrial stateroom
Ponant - Le Lyrial pool

Sleek and stylish, Le Boréal, Le Soléal, L'Austral and Le Lyrial are wonderful small ships that blend luxury and intimacy with a discreet elegance and tasteful décor.

What we love

These chic sisters are amongst the most stylish ships at sea, with muted natural tones, minimalist interiors and playful splashes of colour. The accommodation is flexible, with the option to combine staterooms and create expansive suites, while the restaurants deliver the sort of outstanding gastronomic experience that you would expect from a French flag cruise line.

Capacity 264 Guests (Le Boréal, Le Soléal & L'Austral) / 244 Guests (Le Lyrial)
Crew 140 Staff
Style Refined with a wonderful mix of a modern super yacht and nautical tradition, all with a French flair.

Sightseeing in Senegal

Outside Dakar lies the beautiful Pink Lake – Lake Retba. Its high salt content attracts a bacteria which creates the colour.
