- Overall very much enjoyed this trip. The cabins are small as you would expect on a boat of this size and due to the outside temperatures tend to be hot so that the cooling fan needs to run all night. The bottom bunk is quite wide but the top one is very narrow. However most of us chose to sleep on deck on a sun mattress with a sheet on most nights in the open looking up at the stars and woke to watch the sun rising across the water. The chef produced amazing meals from the small galley almost always with a selection of curries, usually tuna, but always different and there was always more than enough choice of what to eat and lots of fresh fruit. Cruising along was magical and we watched Dolphins and flying fish. We snorkeld at least twice a day and also had two or three other swims off the boat. We visited a couple of inhabited atolls and had a wonderful evening barbecue on an uninhabited island. We were not a group of young people as we ranged in age from mid fifties to over 80 but we all managed the climbing of ladders in and out of the boat and walking along the gunwhales OK but if you are older person and have motility issues and are not keen on swimming and snorkelling then this could have been a problem and you may prefer to have a 'posher' boat However as far as we were concerned we had a great time.
