Would you recommend Variety Cruises to your friends and family as.....?
"We recently did the Garden of Eden cruise around the Seychelles on the Pegasus sailing on 16th April.
The fact that there were only 12 passengers instead of a maximum of 44 meant we were treated like royalty.
Good mix of Brits and continentals and everyone got on well.
We had a class A cabin which was comfortable and a reasonable size but as this is not the most modern ship the bathroom is quite small and the fittings are a little dated.
The food however was very good throughout with decent choice and the fresh fish served was excellent.
The staff were very professional and friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble, so a big credit to the captain and Markos who was in charge of Hotel operations.
Enjoyed the excursions to Curieuse, Cousin and Aride islands particularly,which are basically nature reserves with no other facilities .For those interested in the natural world and ornithology in particular then these are excellent excursions and the landings on small boats through big surf waves was all part of the fun.
The optional excursion to Vallee de Mai on Praslin was enjoyable and informative.
There were several excellent snorkelling trips using the zodiacs and the variety of fish and marine life was pretty good and a lot of new coral growth was particularly evident!
So to summarise, thoroughly enjoyed the cruise which certainly exceeded our expectations.
As this was our first cruise with Variety it will almost certainly not be our last since we particularly enjoy small ship cruising and they have an interesting schedule of similar cruises!"
