A new hydraulic platform with adjustable height provides easier boarding than on any other cruise ship, easier Zodiac embarkation and disembarkation for expeditions, easier access to the sea for swimming and practicing various water sports such as kayaking or paddle-boarding.

The pool deck offers a pool with a panoramic view, equipped with a counter-current swimming system, a pleasant solarium, an outdoor bar and lounge with armchairs and sofas.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
