Great time at a quirky yet interesting ship
A quirky place in a really interesting location with great hosts. It's worth making sure you know when the ferry will take you back to the city, as this can turn a 15-minute drive into a very cold 1-hour drive. The sleeping arrangements are fine, as long as you do not mind single beds / bunks, the dining area in the kitchen is also the only social area indoors. This may feel a bit claustrophobic if you want to spend longer time indoors (which we were not). All in all we had a really great time on the boat and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place to explore the city.

Very suitable ship for larger groups
Warm and original place, very suitable for a group of 16 people. The team is super friendly and attentive. Breakfast is a plus, and by the way very good. The crew is very flexible and attentive.
