A lot of fun and personal It’s fun that you get to cooperate. Nice balance between helping to sail the ship and relaxing on the dek with wine in hand. Also really enjoyed the home made pies!

It was a great experience! The moment you leave the harbour, the motor stops en the ship sails thanks to the wind left a deep impression. The warm welcome and great vibes on board helped to make this day unforgettable.
