You can indicate if you are interested in an under deck or an on deck cabin. However, please note that on the 3-day mini cruises your cabin style is NOT guaranteed until checking in on the boat. All cabins come equipped with private shower/toilet and mostly bunk beds.
"On deck" cabins can be situated on the main deck (deck on which you step on as you embark the ship ), and on the upper deck (deck on top of the main deck). "Under deck" cabins can be found below deck and are actually in the hull of the boat. Advantage of cabins situated on deck is the direct exit to the sea and more fresh air, while cabins below deck are sometimes more quiet (only fellow passengers who have booked below deck cabins will pass by and not all passengers from your ship as well as other ships when docked) and comfortable because they're situated on the sea level that chills the cabins and hallways below deck. Cabins below deck mostly have little portholes.
The crew does not enter your cabins during the cruise, so you need to keep your cabin clean by yourself.
Cabins are not air-conditioned, but salons and hallways below deck usually have air conditioning. Air conditioning is turned on only while the motor or generator works, or while the boat is connected to electricity in harbor. If the boat is docked at sea or in a smaller fish harbor that doesn't have an electricity plug, air conditioning is turned off, because otherwise the generator would disturb the peace and quiet.
For single travellers wishing a private cabin, a single supplement is available.
For the duration of the cruise you will be on one of our boats. All our boats are motor boats made of wood or iron. Boats are different sizes and shapes and we do not know which boat you will be one until 2 weeks before departure. Boat owners are mostly captains for whom this job is a part of a family tradition, so it’s not rare that the crew members are part of one family. Depending on its size, your boat will have about five crew members. Usually that means a captain, a chef, a waiter and deck hands.
Transfer to and from the boat/harbor are NOT included in the price. You will have to make your own way to us!

Dinner is not included because we encourage you to explore local restaurants.
