An international cruise operator has launched its “Garden of Eden” programme in Seychelles.
Operating a fleet of vessels from premium destinations all over the world such as Cuba, Italy, Malta, France, the Adriatic Sea, Greece and the Greek Isles – and now Seychelles – the M/Y Pegasus, set sail from Eden Island Marina on Saturday on its inaugural eight-day cruise around Seychelles’ Inner Islands.
The cruise programme offers four, five and eight day options for cruises that explore the islands and their pristine beaches, of which Seychelles are famed for. Cabins are divided into three categories offering flexibility in the costs of the cruise and allowing for differing levels of what is affordable.
Guests will have the opportunity to explore theSEychelles Islands from the comfort of this all inclusive “floating hotel,” designed with spacious accommodations that sleeps just 49 guests and includes a lounge area, a library and a restaurant.
The twin hulled vessel boasts 240 square metres of open deck space, was built in 1990 and was completely renovated in 2009/2010. Besides enjoying activities such as snorkelling and swimming, guests will also have the opportunity to explore the islands they visit and see at firsthand their attractions, such as the Vallée de Mai on Praslin.
Speaking at a reception held on board last weekend, Tourism and Culture Minister Alain St. Ange
heralded the arrival of the vessel in Seychelles, which he said meant “more diversity in the products Seychelles has to offer visitors.” Minister St. Ange concluded that “Seychelles was conceived with sailors in mind, and what the country has to offer cruise ship passengers and yacht and boat cruises remains unrivalled.”
