8 Night Cruise sailing from Cape Town to Durban aboard Le Lyrial.Discover a PONANT itinerary that explores the essential towns and sites of South Africa's wild east coast. A circuit in partnership with RADIO CLASSIQUE, with the exceptional presence of Alain Duault and of the Sirba Quintet. At the crossroads of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, embark aboard Le Lyrial on a 9-day cruise between Cape Town, mother-city of the country, dominated by Table Mountain, and Durban, a cosmopolitan seaside city.This journey in South Africa will also allow you to discover Port Elizabeth, nicknamed "the friendly city" for its welcoming inhabitants, and Richards Bay.A land of ethnic diversity, South Africa is often described as “a world in one country”. Its incredible melting pot of cultures, religions, and histories infuse its rich heritage. The diversity of fauna and flora is also one of South Africa's treasures: the nation is home to three of the largest terrestrial mammals—the elephant, rhinoceros and hippopotamus—and its plant life alone represents one tenth of the world’s botanic heritage, with some 25.000 species.Between its bustling metropolises and its breathtaking natural beauty, we invite you to discover the two contrasting sides of this incredible country.Highlights of this cruise:Cape TownCape Town and surrounding regions are regarded as one of the most beautiful regions in the world. The city is a rare cultural gem resulting from the amalgamation of Indonesian, French, Dutch, British and German settlers, the local Bushman and Hottentot tribes and the Bantu tribes from the north.The impressive presence of Table Mountain, flanked by the legendary Devil's Peak and historical Signal Hill, stands proudly above the city. Beautiful white sandy beaches along a peaceful coastline frame the Cape Peninsula.Cape Town boasts a multitude of entertainment, ranging from outdoor activities and adventures in the sun to a roaring night life under neon signs. The vast range of shopping opportunities includes haggling with shopholders at Greenmarket Square Flea Market, as well as breezing through sophisticated and stylish shopping malls. The huge variety of restaurants reflects the multicultured history of the Cape and caters for everyone's taste, from fast-food outlets and casual to the chic to the very elegant.Port ElizabethPort Elizabeth is located on the Indian Ocean about halfway between Cape Town and Durban. The city is beautifully set along the beautiful shores of Algoa Bay, making Port Elizabeth a Mecca for all beach and watersport activities. Across the bay is the wonderful Addo Elephant National Park. In and around the city there are scenic nature trails and wildlife experiences, long golden beaches, historic heritage and a warm sunny climate.Port Elizabeth has a famous oceanarium on the seafront, colourful Edwardian architecture, and a fort, Ft. Frederick, from which no shot was ever fired. The old library, City Hall and Market Square are worth a visit , and there are several other interesting buildings.South of the city are good beaches, such as King’s Beach and Humewood Beach. The latter features the Apple Express, one of the few remaining narrow-gauge steam trains, which runs on occasion from Humewood to Thornhill.DurbanDurban is South Africa's third-biggest city and reflects a mix of cultures, including a large Indian community and a new influx of Africans from countries to the north. Indians were brought out to KwaZuli-Natal in the 1860's as indentured slaves to what was then the Colony of Natal. They have stayed and with them they brought their culinary delights and a variety of spices can be found in this city. In Durban's Victoria Market there are many hawkers selling fine spices.Durban Metro is where the proud Zulu nation meets East and West creating a wealth of influences to entertain and enthrall with traditional warrior dancers, mystic fire walkers and colonial heritage.Traditionally Durban was well known for its conservatism when it came to the erection of public buildings,yet in the 1930's the city threw off this mantle and embraced a new Art Deco. Numerous buildings, especially residential high rises, were erected in this new design. In many ways the art work on the Art Deco Buildings reflect a particular Durban identity with a strong emphasis on the city's maritime background.

16 Night Cruise sailing from Auckland to Melbourne aboard Crystal Symphony.Between warm winter discoveries in the New Zealand’s sounds, Wellington’s wine region and the whale-watching mecca of Eden, spend two nights in Sydney and ring in the New Year beneath the fireworks in the city’s famed harbor.Highlights of this cruise:AucklandWelcome to Auckland, the "City of Sails." New Zealand's largest city is along the shores of an extinct volcanic cone known as Rangitoto, often visible to the east. Auckland's population of over one million people represents almost a third of the country's total.New Zealand seems to have a bit of everything: great natural beauty, friendly people, magnificent glacier-studded mountain ranges, sculpted fjords, pristine untouched beaches, lush rainforest, an endless array of sporting activities, and, not to be forgotten, plenty of sheep and rolling farmland. Auckland is the perfect city from which to experience most of what New Zealand has to offer. The city lies astride a narrow isthmus between the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean on two harbors, the Waitemata and Manukau. Auckland and New Zealand's geographic and cultural treasures beckon for your discovery. An enthusiastic welcome awaits you at this thriving city by the sea.TaurangaSprawling along the sweeping bay, Tauranga is a popular summer resort and one of the country's most important ports for the export of kiwi fruit, timber, and dairy products. It is also the gateway for Rotorua, the geothermal wonderland that is one of New Zealand's most famous attractions.Wellington, New ZealandHugging the hillsides around Port Nicholson, a horseshoe-shaped bay that is one of the world's finest, Wellington reminds many visitors of San Francisco. In cultural offerings as well as landscape - Wellington boasts the National Art Gallery and the Dominion Museum, as well as the Government Building, one of the world's largest wodden structures.Christchurch/Akaroa, New ZealandOn a breathtakingly scenic 90-minute drive from Christchurch, discover the charming village of Akaroa, the oldest colonial town in New Zealand’s South Island, and the country’s only French settlement. The Maori first settled here around 700-800 years ago, bestowing the name Akaroa, which means ‘long harbour’ in their native language. English explorers, including James Cook, arrived in the late 1700s, but it was the efforts of French whaling captain Jean Francois L’Anglois in the 1830s that led to the town’s distinctly French personality that still exists today. Nestled in the heart of an ancient volcano along the southern side of the Banks Peninsula, Akaroa’s beautiful bays and harbour are home to the rarest and smallest marine dolphin—the Hectors dolphin—as well as New Zealand Fur Seals, Little Blue Penguins, and many different birds and exotic plants. From kayaking, hiking, fishing, sailing, eco-tours and walking tours to art galleries, craft shops, and cafes, this welcoming town is remains a favorite among New Zealand destinations.Dunedin, New ZealandThe charming city of Dunedin lies in southeastern New Zealand, less than ten miles from our pier in Port Chalmers. Its name means Edinburgh in Gaelic and to this day it has retained enduring reminders of its Scottish roots. Adorning the streets of Dunedin is a wealth of Victorian and Edwardian buildings, richly festooned with spires, gables and gargoyles. These architectural landmarks are imposing reminders of a more prosperous era. Surprisingly, the surrounding area is also home to prolific local wildlife, animals rarely found so close to a major city. The choice is yours: explore impressive city architecture, take a rail journey through unspoiled wilderness or venture out to view albatrosses and a country estate. Cruising Milford Sound, New ZealandMilford Sound is the undisputed jewel of Fiordland National Park. Thousands of years ago, relentless glacial ice forged its rugged grandeur. Sheer-faced granite walls soar skyward, white-plumed waterfalls tumble from lush valleys into glassy waters and Mitre Peak rears over 5,000 feet into the mist.Due to its outstanding natural beauty and cultural significance, Milford Sound has been nominated a World Heritage Area.Please note, no guests will be permitted ashore. However, the true grandeur of Milford Sound is best enjoyed from the water and the comfort of your Crystal Cruises' ship.Sydney, AustraliaThe billowing profile of the Opera House greets us on her return to Sydney's glorious, world-class harbor. Ahead lies the arch of the Harbour Bridge. These twin symbols, more than any other, identify one of the Southern Hemisphere's premier cities.Sydney is an energetic and exciting metropolis whose nightlife, shopping and fine restaurants compare favorably with the finest the world has to offer. Despite its modern advances, Sydney has lovingly cherished its heritage, for this was the birthplace of the Australian nation. Combine Sydney's boundless attractions with its superb harborside location, and you have that certain magic that few other cities can rival. Eden, AustraliaEden is a southern coastal town in New South Wales, Australia. Sitting on rugged land with undulating cliffs bordering in the south and sandy beaches in the north, it is adjacent to the third deepest natural harbor in the southern hemisphere. Asling Beach ends where the entrance to Lake Curalo begins. Once a famed whaling town, today, whale-watching (and protection) has become the draw while forestry, fishery and cruise tourism contribute to Eden’s growth and progress.Melbourne, AustraliaMelbourne is the capital city of Victoria. It maintains an air of old-world grace and refined dignity with spacious tree-lined boulevards and expansive parks. The prosperous lifestyle of its people is both cosmopolitan and sophisticated. Quaint trams rumble through the downtown area past verdant gardens and impressive high-rises, in a city that has never lost its endearing charm. The heritage of more than 100 different cultures has contributed to Melbourne's richly international character. This diverse ethnic mix is exemplified by its range of 15,000 dining venues which offer more than 50 different kinds of cuisine. Melbourne's sightseeing is as diverse as it is composition and beckons for your discovery.
