A perfect week

Our amazing nautical experience began as we stepped on the ship. The ship was beautifully presented with huge masts, smart traditional sailors, teak floors and décor all providing a truly romantic and nautical experience. On the first night we were led from our dinning table to the decks to experience the ship sailing from port for our very first time. The champagne was flowing and unbeknown to us the very moving music “conquest of paradise” from Vangelis was played as the sailors and fellow guests all joined to pull the huge sails up as the boat was leaving port, then as the sails were raised the wind took command. That whole experience was repeated every night and was the most beautiful experience that can never be matched with cruising on modern liners.

The weather was perfect , the food five star dining and the staff very friendly and helpful from the captain to the engineer and from the maitre d’ to the sports team. Each day we went ashore often leaving the boat by a tender and looking back at the magnificent vessel, often in disbelief that we were fortunate to be sailing in such a splendid vessel. Following days of sightseeing, shopping and sunbathing we were welcomed back on ship where we joined our new sailing companions for pre dinner cocktails sharing our daily experiences before we dressed for dinner.

We will never forget the experience of climbing the masts, sitting in the nets, pulling up the sails, steering the ship, the crab racing night and of course learning to sail a dinghy.

A perfect week and we can guarantee you will be hooked and book again as many of the others had.
