Why compromise on comfort when you're at sea?! With space onboard for up to 12 guests, choose from one of four stylish cabins, each with an en-suite bathroom, flat screen TV and iPod docking station, or the comfy saloon area with double bed and a privacy screen at night. And if you're feeling a little adventurous... why not sleep outdoors on the upper deck under the stars?!
The master cabin offers stunning views of the ocean through large windows. This room has ample storage space along with a comfy queen size bed, private bathroom with a double basin and shower room. If a lie in is the perfect start to your day, you can snuggle up in bed and switch on your 52 inch LCD TV, watch a DVD or listen to a selection of music through the sound system. Guests can also hook up their iPods for hours of listening pleasure.
Two double VIP guest cabins can be arranged into twins and both have a junior version of the Master Suite's bathroom with shower room.
Other features include a 26 inch LCD TV, DVD and sound system. The double guest cabin, which can not be split into a twin, offers an en-suite, DVD and sound system. All enclosed guest cabins are fully air conditioned. In the evenings an area of the main saloon can be converted to sleep an additional two people, with a privacy screen, separate toilet and shower.
