Plus, room service is available for 24 hours a day, so you can also dine in the comfort of your stateroom or suite.
With just over 100 staterooms and suites onboard, you can both enjoy the small nature of the vessel, as well as be spoilt for choice. While the staterooms and suites differ in size, they all come with either King-size or twin beds; room service; a flat screen television; DVD, CD and iPod players; a safe; a mini-bar; bathrobes and French bath products. And, with most staterooms and suites, you will also be able to enjoy the picturesque views of the coastline from your own private balcony.
These exclusive private charters aboard the Le Lyrial have been carefully selected by APT Cruising. Itineraries have been designed with Australian and New Zealand guests in mind, and all cruises are accompanied by APT Cruise Directors. Le Lyrial will sail a series of 15 day cruises along the Adriatic and Aegean coastlines, visiting Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Greece and Turkey. There is no better way to enjoy the sun-soaked beaches and dazzling blue seas of this beautiful part of the world, and because you are in a small vessel, you will be able to dock in ports that the larger vessels can’t usually get to.
In each port shore excursions are included, and these hand-picked adventures offer amazing insights into the cultures of the coastline, and are accompanied by expert local guides to make sure you get the most out of each stop. What could be better than exploring the wealth of these rich and varied countries, all while basking in the warm weather and enjoying all-inclusive luxury on your private heaven?
