Experience Antarctica in Comfort and Luxury Aboard the all-new expedition ship, Le Lyrial. Featuring sophisticated design and the latest communication, navigational and safety equipment, Le Lyrial boasts a convenient and sensible layout, aided by three passenger elevators.

In keeping with a longstanding commitment to environmental conservation, Le Lyrial is equipped with the most eco-friendly technology available today. Our expeditions exceed all environmental protocols, including those set by the National Science Foundation, Environmental Protection Agency and Antarctic Treaty Party nations.

On other cruises to different destinations, she carries more than 264 passengers, however on Antarctic voyages we limit her capacity to just 199 guests. Fewer passengers in turn allows for more shore excursions each day and provides private balconies for every guest.
