There are two double cabins with private shower and heads. The aft VIP is available for a 20% surcharge. There are two twin cabins, one forward and one aft and there is another cabin in the forepeak which is very comfortable for one person but has the option for two . There is a day head midships for use by those in the twin cabins and the large saloon offers plenty of room for relaxing in comfort.
Food is taken very seriously and there is no problem with special requests. A typical day starts with a choice of healthy or cooked options – typically porridge, eggs, bacon, toast, cereals and fruit. The lunch menu features fresh salads, wraps and sandwiches or something warming if its cold. Evening meals are delicious and home cooked – using fresh local produce where possible – usually it is a hearty single course with the occasional feature dessert.
In between meals times you won’t go hungry, fruit and snacks are freely available, and if the conditions and the mood are right for some home baking there is hope for a morning pastry with your cofee or a cake with your afternoon tea.
Water and hot drinks are freely available at any time of day, as are fruit, biscuits and snacks. Alcohol is not included but can be purchased on board and consumed in moderation. Alternatively you may bring your own.
