We had sailed on her sister ship several years ago, loving every moment, so decided that a short cruise on this lovely, yacht size vessel would be just perfect in a Mediterranean spring. Embarkation was over before we knew it, with the smiling captain waiting at the top of the gangplank to welcome guests, and a trio of waiters proffering glasses of champagne. Our charming Deck 2 cabin was ready, with a chilled bottle nestling in an ice bucket and a huge basket of fruit temptingly beside it. The cabin had two delightfully retro portholes, lovely wooden trims round the separate bed and sitting area and a huge cabinet housing tv, DVD player and cocktail cabinets, complete with beautiful crystal glasses. The wardrobe had adequate storage, plus two robes, and there were ample drawers for more storage. The tiny bathroom had a marble shower unit with multi jet taps , Bulgari toiletries in generous sizes and ample fluffy towels. The friendly cabin stewardess checked to see that everything was to our liking, and brought the down pillows we prefer. We strolled to the top deck for a tempting buffet lunch, accompanied by wines or champagnes... All a fantastic beginning to a delightful cruise. Dinner, the highlight of the day on many a cruise, was truly a Gastronomic experience, with every dish cooked to order, from a very varied menu, beautifully prepared and presented, especially with the great touch of the main course being cloche covered , and served with ceremony and style. Well chosen wines were served to accompany dinner each evening, but it was a little disappointing to find that no port was available, apart from an ultra sweet ruby. It was a delight on two cruise nights to have dinner served on the open decks of the ship, with dishes chosen to reflect the Mediterranean Sea surrounding us. Always on offer was an alternative more traditional fare emu, and an innovative vegan and raw menu. As this tiny vessel has no showroom or entertainment venues, evenings are low key, centred round the charming Piano bar or the Top of the Yacht bar, with skilled cocktail serving barmen. The ports visited ranged from tiny, idyllic Patmos, busy Mykonos and Kusadasi, where most guests whisked off to visit the glorious ancient city of Ephesus. The evocative port of Kepez was the starting point for those who wished to visit the sad site of Galipolli, or alternately see the vast site of ancient Troy. On return from port visits, we were able to enjoy the range of water sports offered from the lowered back deck, shepherded by a crew member in and inflatable. Other guests enjoyed the comfortable sun beds round the tiny pool, with waiters offering cooling drinks and deck food service. On the last night of the cruise, we had chosen to enjoy a night under the stars, sleeping on top deck on a huge curved Balinese bed, with half canopy, and chilled champagne ready on the cocktail table at the foot of the bed. This special bed was roped off for privacy, and all lights dimmed, on request at midnight. Unlike many guests, we stayed the entire night, going off to sleep under the velvet, star studded sky and woken by the sun rising. A cruise on such a charming vessel was like a tiny taste of being on a grand liner of yesteryear with impeccable service, no glitz, just old fashioned luxury discretely delivered. Read Less
