"A very comfortable way to cruise the islands! The rooms were spacious, comfortable and "refreshed" several times a day. The food was delicious at all mealtimes and lunch on deck was a real treat. The bar team were very attentive, ensuring that we had drinks and nibbles on return from our trips. We didn't want for anything whilst on the boat. "
