Sail with us aboard Ponant’s Le Lyrial on October 16, 2020!

We are so excited about this trip! The itinerary is spectacular and the time of year is perfect. Ponant is a small French line, offering the best in luxury travel. You’ll be treated as a valued client, not as “one of the crowd.” The ship boasts two restaurants, a showroom, lounges, spa, and, most importantly for us, an acoustic piano in the panoramic lounge for Emile. There are 122 beautiful staterooms (with balconies), outstanding shore excursions, and a crew who’s only concern is you - a dream come true!

Emile will play onboard most nights for us; there will be special performances and, if there is interest, Emile will give a masterclass the day we are at sea. You’re always welcome to request pieces that are special to you and Emile will do his best to accommodate your request during the voyage. Your experience is up close and personal!

We are delighted to say that we have many returning sailors joining us once again. Some have traveled with us once before, some have been on every cruise. What we know is that our groups form bonds that last forever. Our amazing travel pro, Barbara King, leaves no detail to chance, and it shows. Barbara has already arranged Emile’s private opening concert in Barcelona and the venue is truly stunning. And that’s before we even get on the ship! This will be a trip to remember forever. We hope you can join us. View the itinerary here. And give Barbara a call today - very limited availability!


In 2019, Emile traveled to the Baltic aboard the Azamara Journey, June 22-July 1. This was a spectacular adventure, with some jaw-dropping experiences! Photos will be available to view here soon.

Past cruises have taken guests to Rome, the Amalfi Coast, Sicily, Venice, and the Dalmatian Coast. We’ve sailed the coast of Norway aboard an expedition ship and cruised lazily along the Danube and the Rhine. Our incredible Baltic journey left from Stockholm and sailed to Tallinn; brought us to St. Petersburg and Moscow, as well as Helsinki, Copenhagen, Aalborg and Oslo. Amazing experiences in each port! We hope you can join us on one (or more) of these incredible adventures!
