SILHOUETTE CRUISES * * * * *
Petit Futé's opinion on SILHOUETTE CRUISES
What a silhouette! When you see the Sea Shell and Sea Pearl, the two Silhouette Cruise ships from the 20th century looming on the horizon of the ocean, you will wish you were part of the privileged people who are discovering the most beautiful islands on the planet Earth, on board of a lavish yacht. Boat is the best way to enjoy the charm of the islands. So, boarding party! The boats are built in Dutch tradition, everything made of wood and sails, 37 m long, with eight cabins having double or twin beds and air conditioned. And vogue the cruise! Everything has been designed so that the dream can be realized (TV, video, stereo music, ice-maker, washing machine, dryer...) and to anchor with happiness on the satellite islands of Mahe. The Mai valley of Praslin, the granite rocks of La Digue, the turtles of Curieuse, the Cousin or Aride bird sanctuary, the dive at Saint-Pierre and robinsonade on Soeur Islands are on the program available in two versions: seven days (and six nights) or eight days (and seven nights). With their powerful rig and their large sail area, Sea Shell and Sea Pearl can be sailed at a good pace, whatever the weather. It is an unforgettable experience in the Seychelles winds as various types of sports are offered during the week: sea kayaking, windsurfing, surfing, snorkelling... Scuba diving can also justify a stay on board as these boats are equipped to accommodate eighteen divers with 8 or 12 diving packages, as a crew of highly qualified PADI instructors ensure their safety. Ah! The pleasure of drinking a cold SeyBrew, leaning on the ropes of the boat, when the sun is setting, and there is nothing else to do than to look at the calm horizon. Prices are affordable if you refer to the cost of hotels in Seychelles. From €1,100 per person in a cabin with a double bed for a cruise of 7 nights with full board – departure every Saturday – (+€182 / storage fee). The more modern sailboat, Sea Star and Sea Bird offer the same concept of enthralling cruise while benefitting from a more spacious accommodation, with private bathroom/toilets. Let's finally highlight the very attractive offers, the honeymooners benefit from a discount of 50% on the amount of the cruise for the bride. Book earlier (90 days): 15% of discount on the amount of the cruise (offers that can't be combined).
Expedition cruises are also organised in the remote islands, in the Aldabra atoll.
