What a great place to stay for a couple of nights. The ship has been re-fitted to an extremely high standard and guests are free to look around all public areas. The decor was in keeping with it having been a lighthouse tender in a previous life. The cabin was beautiful, very well serviced, immaculately clean and very spacious too. We loved the detailing of the fixtures and the little details like fresh flowers in the room. Breakfast was fabulous but it was the crew who really made it memorable. Confident, attentive and engaging. 10/10 to the staff, their enthusiasm and attention to detail are world class. We’d definitely come back again.
