It was an excellent adventure on board a very comfortable boat with an exceptional crew.

The daily excursions were all very interesting and they kept us busy the entire week. All meals were incredibly good and served by a very attentive staff. I enjoyed the moments on the deck with the other guests where we could get a drink or a snack and get to know each other a bit or just discuss the day's activities.
