14 days to cross Atlantic to Lisbon was amazing. 195 passengers and it has spoilt us for anything larger now.

195 passengers 14 days at sea, perfect service and food, what more could you want? Weather was great for 10 of these days too. Last two days were rough, but this is the Atlantic Ocean after all.

Onboard Activities

There is not much due to size of ship, well yacht but we knew that. But what was on offer was enough and was well presented. This type of cruise is about sailing on a Tall Ship not bingo in the main lounge! Music was good and guests were catered for. I paint and sew so found like minded guest easily. It was all a great 2 weeks.

Midship aft, great size and the most storage we have e etc had. Bed was amazing, and very clean.

Ship tip

Do it, it was so different to a cruise ship. Atmosphere is very relaxed Nd you are know by name by everyone, how, I don’t know! experience an open Bridge where you really can talk about the route, weather And see what a working bright feels like. Be part of a working yatch and really get to know other passengers. Take lots of books to read, sewing, painting etc to fill your days. Yoga and Pilates and stretches are not charged for.

Ports of call

Bridgetown, Barbados
