This deluxe expedition ship has all the amenities of a cruise liner, yet it is still small enough to maintain an intimate atmosphere. She has large picture windows offering panoramic views of the ocean and islands.  Onboard facilities include a restaurant, lounge, inside and outside bars, a choice of sun, observation and star gazing decks and a swimming pool. You can lie back in a hammock, relax in the special open lounge, watch for dolphins or soak in the jacuzzi. For the more energetic there’s a well equipped gym, ideal for burning off a few calories.

All cabins and suites, apart from the 3 standard inside cabins, have sea views, and all are air conditioned. You’ll have an LCD TV and video system, telephone and en-suite bathroom. Suites are more generously sized than the standard cabins, with large windows and comfy sofas. Many can accommodate up to 3 passengers with some sleeping up to 4, and there are interconnecting suites, ideal for families. Top of the range suites have private balconies and minibars stocked with champagne.
