That's great news! I was worried that it would be super basic, almost institutional!

The trick is to have reduced expectations. It won’t be like Seabourn, Silversea, or Ponant.

A&K charters the Le Lyrial from Ponant. It's an elegant expedition vessel that's in high demand for charters. The vessel has a 260 passenger capacity, but A&K caps their sailings at 199 passengers.
