Fabulous cruise which was superbly organized by very friendly and professional crew.

Snorkeling, hiking, and touring Cooktown were all memorable, but so was just sitting on the deck and watching the landscape change. Wonderful to feel so well looked after without being interfered with in the least. The food prep was particularly impressive, and meals were beautifully presented and coordinated. Knowledgeable crew, generous and very kind. Very positive experience all around.
