Shirley Chapman (15/01/2018)

"The crew and public areas of the boat were wonderful but this is not quite the luxury boat is was made out to be. The cabins are all below decks and although the ensuite bathrooms were all good with plenty of hot water, they were very noisy as the engine, generators and air conditioning were going all night. Air conditioning had no temperature control. Bed linen was too small for the beds so we did not sleep well. The food was extremely good, the wildlife guides, panga drivers and general camaraderie amongst the crew and guests wonderful. We ended the holiday by teaching the crew Scottish reels while they taught us samba dancing."

Mr. Christopher Callicott
"Beautiful boat, excellent cabin accommodation (I was allocated a double cabin, perhaps because of my 14 night stay), wonderful food, friendly helpful crew, especially Eduardo the captain. "
Jon Cable
"This was a fun boat to be on - far better than some of the other cruisers we saw round the islands since it had real character. The captain and crew were a great bunch, really helpful and always on hand. The food was of mixed quality, but never poor - the chef had a tendency to overcook things and breakfasts were presented in an odd order at times!"
Jo and Mike Bassett
"A beautiful traditional three masted tall ship. Delicious food was served usually on the aft deck but on a couple of cool evenings in the dining room. Our cabin consisted of a large double bed + a single bed and a spacious en-suite shower-room. The staff were friendly and helpful and the captain only too pleased to encourage participation by willing hands. He even allowed a group of us onto the bridge to celebrate with bubbly the crossing of the equator late at night."
Sanjay Pandanaboyana
"Great crew and Captain"
