    What Our Clients Say

    Chris Hoskins, U.K

    The ship was an excellent choice we did the Eastern 7/8 day trip. We had a fantastic experience, we saw all the major wildlife possibilities, snorkelling with Sea Lions was a highlight for me. The general standard of accommodation was excellent, crew were attentive and friendly. Very happy to recommend this ship to others who might be considering it
