Cruise aboard the exclusively chartered M/Y Harmony V
, a state-of-the-art motor yacht that carries no more than 50 passengers per voyage. Experience the harmonious balance between conventional cruising and private yachting along with an exciting voyage of discovery. Each day you'll discover a new port of call, offering a hidden cove with crystal blue waters to cool you, a glimpse of ancient history to amaze you, and rich cultural diversity to intrigue you. And thanks to the ship's smaller size, you'll enjoy attentive and personalized service from your Cruise Director and ship staff. The open-air Sun Deck provides the ideal setting to bask in the sun and admire the passing scenery. Public areas also include an elegant dining room with large viewing windows, an American bar, and a swimming platform. During your cruise, you can enjoy complimentary use of the four bicycles available on board. Please be advised that the M/Y Harmony V
does not have an elevator. Please let our Reservations Specialist know when booking if you require the use of an elevator so that they can work with you to select an alternative tour
The interior lounge and an American bar has relaxing couches and comfortable lounge chairs where you can have a drink and gaze out of the large windows at the breathtaking sceneries you are cruising to, relax and read a book, or watch satellite TV or one of our documentaries about the next destination you will visit.
The spacious sun deck is the ideal place to bask under the sun and just completely unwind. Or, relax under the shaded area and let your senses drift while looking at the view.
The classy dining room is located on the Main Deck. Surrounded by large windows providing beautiful views of the ports of call, it can accommodate all guests at a single seating.
During your cruise, you can enjoy complimentary use of the four bicycles available on board. There are also a few ports along our route where you can rent bicycles at an additional cost — your Cruise Director can point you in the right direction.
