Sailing on the Seas of simply Idyllic!
Stunning Setting. Fabulous Food. Cool Crew.
Simply the best short vacation I have ever had. Gorgeous wooden-hulled 112 foot Turkish sailing gullet which made for an incredibly romantic mobile base of operations from which to spend a week exploring the Maldives. Full 5 star food prepared by the onboard chef including fresh catches, and accompanied by a solid wine selection. Delight-filled diving facilitated by the accompanying dive boat and cool onboard dive master. Cheerful, fun and professional crew. Had the whole boat for just the two of us this time, which was luxurious indeed. Looking forward to doing it again with a small group of fabulous friends next time! Was tempted not to write a review to try to keep this cruise something of a secret...but the folks who created this experience deserve the acclaim.

Unforgettable adventure!
It's on a cruise boat! Moving to different locations everyday! The best way to see Maldives!
Hidden gem! Better than stuck on a small Maldives island. Let the cruise hotel moves to different places everyday. All inclusive meals, snorkeling, diving, swimming, fishing, etc etc. Just follow the flow, let the crew take you to magical places.
