Cabin:

I was a bit leary about booking this cruise, since there were only a few reviews I could find online. I have previously cruised only on larger, six-star cruise ships (Crystal Cruises) so I was hesitant about being on such a small cruise, and worried it wouldn't be as luxurious of an experience as I was used to. It turned it to be more wonderful than I could have ever imagined for cruising the Greek Islands.

The benefits of being on a smaller yacht vs. a big cruise are endless.

-There is no waiting and lining up for tender boats. This maximizes your time on shore.

Cabin Review

The rooms are small, but that is a product on being on a yacht. They all face outward so you always get natural light. I was supposed to be in the mini suite (cabin 5) but through a mix-up ended up in Cabin 24. This was basically on top of the engine, so the room was very loud and almost vibrated at night when the ship was going full steam. I would not recommend booking this cabin. We were moved to cabin 14, closer to the front of the ship, which was a much less noisy room. But you need to be prepared that the rooms on the tween deck are a bit loud. It's just the nature of being on a boat. If you can spring for a main deck cabin, I recommend it.
