To have your meal request on your plate from the first day of the cruise, please advise us of your dietary requirement at the time of booking. If you are allergic to certain types of food, please specify in advance what it includes. We will put a note beside your name on the list of guests so that the crew can be prepared. At the time of check-in, please introduce yourself to your cook or waiter so they are aware of who you are and you can discuss any particular requirements with them.

What are the cabin arrangements?

Cabins are based on 2 sharing, and consist of twin beds, master cabin or one double bed. If you’d prefer a certain cabin type, it is important you let us know this upon booking, so we are aware and will note your request. Cabin arrangements are only confirmed on our Adriatic Sailing Cruise at the time of booking. For all other cruises, ship allocation is finalised a week before departure, so we are unable to 100% guarantee a twin bed or double bed cabin. This is due to the fact that each of our gulets have completely unique cabin configurations (and therefore always consist of a different number of twin and double cabins available onboard). We will do our best to accommodate requests on a first requested, first served basis.
