WHAT AIRPORT DO I NEED TO FLY TO? Seychelles International airport
HOW LONG IS THE TRANSFER FROM SEYCHELLES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT? You’ll be boarding in Mahe which is only a short journey from Seychelles International airport.
DO I NEED TO HAVE PREVIOUS SAILING EXPERIENCE? No not at all, you can learn as much or as little as you’d like, there’s always the option to help the skipper with mooring the ship or alternatively, you can sunbathe and take in the beautiful rays.
CAN I STILL GO ON THE CRUISE IF I SUFFER FROM SEA SICKNESS? Yes, of course, medication is sold on board if necessary but most of the routes the cruises take are between islands meaning that there is a low chance of violent waves.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME? It is advised that you bring a small bag that can be folded if possible due to the limited space (suitcases not advised). Summer clothing, swimwear, a warmer jumper for the cooler evenings, toiletries and a rucksack to take ashore.
WHAT PROPORTION OF GUESTS ARE SINGLES AND COUPLES? The cruises usually consist of 30% couples and 70% singles.
IS THERE A SINGLE SUPPLEMENT? You can book a cabin for yourself at an extra charge, however, if the trip is fully booked you will be asked to share a cabin (usually a bunk bed or twin beds).
