WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY
The opportunity to travel with such ease and comfort with my daughter and granddaughter was fabulous. Being able to give them such a trip and enabling them to expand their horizons is an experience I will never forget. The memory of the trip even deepened our bond and our love of each other as well.”
An excellent trip for children as well as adults- informative, extremely well-organized, a superb staff and set of tour guides, a great boat and an attentive crew - and lots of fun!”
This was the best planned and executed trip I have ever experienced. I saw more and learned more, while having my creature comforts well cared for, to perfection.”

Arethusa is small cruise ship whose size and design make it a perfect vessel for our cultural voyages. Built in 2007, this 50-guest yacht allows us to call at out-of-the-way destinations and dock at small harbors, avoiding the crowds and congestion of larger ports that cater to mega ships. All 26 spacious cabins enjoy an ocean view, and the majority feature private balconies with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. All have a private bathroom with shower, flat-screen TV, telephone, safe, mini-refrigerator, and climate control. The ample public areas include an elegant dining room that serves all guests in a single open seating, a welcoming lounge and bar affording opportunities for convivial conversation as well as lectures, and a furnished Sun Deck ideal for relaxed observation of the passing shoreline or for dining alfresco. Arethusa meets the very latest standards for safety and is equipped with state-of-the-art communications and navigation systems. With a crew-to-passenger ratio of nearly one-to-two, guests are assured the highest standards of professionalism and attentive, personalized service.
