While traveling on a cruise ship, you can take advantage of the offer of the cruise company to go on a tour as part of a large group, which is quite inconvenient and uncomfortable. As part of a large group, with people with different interests, it is difficult to see or hear anything, and you should always follow the group.

We invite you to go on a guided tour, in which you will be given personal attention, taking into account your wishes.
