(from 1 verified customers)

Last refitted in 2018, and carrying just 144 passengers (and 118 crew), what can you expect onboard? Butler service, casual attire and open-seated dining, genuine hospitality, anytime access to the Captain’s bridge (weather permitting), and all-inclusive service are some of the pleasures you can expect. On shore your fare includes hosted adventures lead by scientists and destination experts.

Your fellow guests will be adventurous couples and single travellers of mature years who enjoy nature and wild life at close range. They will probably be some of the most interesting people you’ll ever meet. The ship will cater to your pampering, fitness, shopping, and contact-with-the-outside-world needs.
