Sail Date: Dec 2018

The staff on this ship were excellent, great service and friendly / food was very good. The ship is fascinating to sail on especially when they raise the sails, truly a sight to watch. As it is not a large cruise ship you are not crowded with too many people. Our cabin was small but comfortable.

The only downside, a serious safety concern is getting off/on the gangplank when getting into/out of the tenders. This platform is very unstable and rickety thus unsafe as it moves up and down and although the staff help you in/out during our time several people fell, luckily landing inside the tender; if you fell in between the tender and the platform you would be killed.

Other ships are using a much more stable and secured platform which is much safer. When I brought this matter to the attention of one of the board members/owner whom was sailing with his family he appeared not to care stating "there is nothing we can do". I believe a simple modification to secure this platform would make tendering much safer for all passengers and crew.
