Once in a lifetime Expedition itinerary. Aldabra ... Zodiacs to fabulous beaches ... Drift Snorkeling from the ocean into the Aldabra Lagoon ...

Expedition crew is the only thing that kept this from becoming a very bad cruise.

Stateroom was a bit small but thoughtfully designed and we found ample space for our 4 very big bags with drone equipment and lots of camera gear.

Cabin VS

Small cabin but thoughtful and lots of space for things. Plastic fanatics have removed plastic liners and make it harder to be hygienic. Water fanatics have taken most of the flush out of the toilet and so you need to flush it many times.

Also, they do not provide you with bottled water .. only shipboard water .. . it is considered a "Special Request" to get EVIAN in your stateroom. Make sure you ask for it in advance of your booking. They have a Reverse Osmosis Water machine on board and fill a glass bottle with this every day. but this has a pH of less than 7.0 (slightly acidic) and, to us, a slightly off putting taste.

No REDBULL on the ship at all ... NO PERSONAL BUTLER service ... it is misleading .. you get a stateroom attendent that is responsible for at least 10 (probably 15) other staterooms and you have to contact Reception to ask for him to help with something.

However, they are good about fulfilling your special requests when you do see them.
