The rooms are lovely, so are all the staff, the Captain kept everyone informed of the islands around us & the history that went with them. Being a rainy/windy day, they still managed to find somewhere calm for passengers to go kayaking. Would do again. Had a lovely time.

A big thank you to Charlotte 1, Alex, Paw Wah, Charlotte 2, Lucky and Becci and all the rest of the crew that we didn't meet. We had an excellent time on board which included kayaking, snorkelling, a 3 course meal, breakfast and a beautiful sunset. Our cabin was very comfortable with great views.

Will do this again. The boat is beautiful, bedrooms with almost wall to ceiling windows overlooking the sea. Sun deck a great place to lounge with a glass of wine. An opportunity to go swimming off a local beach or kayaking, or stay on board and enjoy the sun in the afternoon. Dinner was very nice and not over facing.... More

We took advantage of a Grabone offer to take an overnight cruise on the one nice afternoon of a not-very-summery end of January. We had a great time - the members of the crew were friendly and helpful, the trip ashore to Motuihe Island was enjoyable, the nibbles to go with happy hour very tasty, and we had a calm... More

We had a great time with our Daughter's 20th bday dinner and Cruise. Beautiful table setting. Friendly staff especially Rachel. The food needs a bit more attention. The duck was good but the fish was a bit dry. The cheese platter was very good but the chocolate brownie mousse could have been better.

Wonderful experience on the cruise - only drawback is that we could not hear the Captains comments as we we were heading out of the harbor. I am sure he had interesting info, but the speakers were set very low volume. Otherwise, the crew was outstanding, the food wonderful, the cabin and bed comfortable, and the people from all over...

We boarded at 15:00 Christmas eve for an overnight cruise returning the next morning at 9:00am. The timetable was spot on with the gate manned 10 min before.
