The accommodation is ideal for cruising with friends and family. The master cabin is forward with a generous double v-berth, and the second cabin is aft featuring a huge queen sized berth. The dinette can also convert to another double when additional accommodation is required. The package is complete with a spacious bathroom with manual toilet, vanity, and H/C Shower.
