Breakfast, lunch and daytime offerings can be traditional or light and fresh; there will always be dishes with a local flavour. Our buffet selections are designed to ensure that the most stringent health and safety standards are met.

One of the highlights of the day will be a full-service dinner served over two levels in our spectacular main dining room. A selection of wines and beers are complimentary during meal hours in the main dining room for lunch and dinner.

Room Service

We have a more relaxed side, too. There’s 24-hour complimentary room service*, so you can have a lazy breakfast in bed. If your cabin has a balcony, you can enjoy lunch or dinner – and a front-row view of the ocean – in private. If the sea breeze and sails are calling, head to the open-air Horizon Bar for lunch in the sunshine; with the chance to sneak a treat from our late afternoon ‘Deck Delights’ trolley service.

They will ensure our music compliments the ambience on-board, inviting guests to dance away the evening. As we travel the world, local shows, dancers and singers will help to immerse our guests in the local culture.


The onboard shop boasts a selection of high quality logo items, souvenirs and travel items including sunglasses and binoculars as well as treats and a range of necessities. 


The library, which overlooks the wake of the ship, is a great place to read and take a break from the days activities. The library will be stocked with a wide selection of books, with a focus on travel, destinations and maritime history. The library will also host an area for board games and is home to the shore excursions desk where guests can find out about the various shore excursions on offer, and book their chosen trips.

Guests can also unwind by reading in the library which overlooks the wake of the ship. This space is perfect to take a moment to plan your day whilst sipping a coffee or to reflect on the experiences of your latest adventure ashore.


We believe ocean voyages should be powered by nature. That’s why we intend to sail without using propulsion engines for around 70% of each season; a true sailing experience. 

We let Mother Nature be our compass and the prevailing winds and currents define our course. Our tall ship is powered by the billowing sails as much as possible and, as we follow the sun, you’ll discover a new-found freedom and time to connect with the beauty of the natural world.

Our voyage planning starts with a review of the prevailing winds, currents and weather conditions in whichever region of the world the ship is located. From this we determine the general direction of travel, ensuring we follow the winds and currents for the majority of the time, in order to capitalise on the ship’s excellent sailing credentials.

Our itineraries are truly led by nature in the same way that the ship is powered by it. We are confident that this will resonate with our guests, as will our wide-open decks and remote sailing areas, particularly as the world emerges from the challenges of this year.

We seek out the most iconic destinations and remote beaches and plot our course. Inevitably this process guides us round the world in a different way, frequently following the traditional tall ship routes made famous by the intrepid merchants of the past.
