Sail Date: Mar 2019
Cabin:

Smallish boat/ship that has accommodation for about 50 people but with a staff ratio of 1 to 2 cruisers. Huge cabins that are exquisitely equipped, spotlessly clean and unbelievably sound proofed. All cabins have an exterior sliding door and a full sized bathroom that would do many hotels proud. The shower is full sized and is welcome after a day exploring on the land. Each stop is associated with well organized and interesting tours that are included in the tour cost.

Great food and open seating with casual clothing OK for any meal - meals are actually low stress and fun This cruise is well above what you get on most ocean going ships and really sets the bar very high with regard to quality and value for money Non-alcoholic drinks and beer are included and any cocktail or drink ordered is reasonably priced. All meals come with good quality free wine and each day their is a free cocktail happy hour (the cocktails are superb). What sets this cruise apart though is the staff who seem to enjoy your company - nothing is too much trouble.

I world definitely recommend this cruise and I am alraedy planning to go again

Cabin Review

Cabin Strand Cabin

Really large and well equipped with a superb king/queen sized bed. It was as good as you get in a premium hotels with a full sized bathroom and shower. Extremely well serviced and spotlessly clean. Lots of bottled water is provided. All cabins have an exterior sliding glass doors. The air conditioning is super efficient which is important when temperatures hover in the high 30's (C). All cabins are highly sound proofed so you are not bothered by intrusive sounds from other cabins.
