Built in 2005 and refurbished in 2010, she accommodates up to 178 passengers in three-star comfort. The atmosphere on board is friendly and informal and within days you will have made new friends in the restaurant, on the shore excursions or whilst relaxing in the comfortable public areas.

Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner are served on board. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style with hot and cold items and dinners are a served set menu with a choice of either two main courses or a vegetarian option. Please note that due to galley restrictions, CroisiEurope is unable to offer a choice of each course, so menus for lunch and dinner are “set” with no choice at courses. Certain dietary requests can be catered for (on request). Please provide any such requests in writing to Noble Caledonia at the time of your reservation and please reiterate these requests to the ship’s Hotel Manager or Noble Caledonia staff upon your embarkation.

    MOSQUITOS

    Please ensure you take the appropriate precautions to guard against mosquito bites.

    NEWSPAPERS

    Newspapers are not available on board.

    OPERATIONAL CHANGES

    Despite our meticulous planning efforts, there may be times when changes must be made to the daily programme due to circumstances beyond our control such as heavy river traffic or fluctuating water levels. The ship’s Captain and crew will do their utmost to find the best and safest solution. Any changes to the day’s schedule will be communicated as soon as possible.

    PAYMENTS ON BOARD

    At any time during your voyage you can buy pre-paid cards for the purchase of premium drinks on board. You may purchase the pre-paid cards by credit card (Visa, MasterCard) or cash (Euros) only. At the end of the cruise, any unused credit will be refunded to you. Any other services, such as gifts from the shop, must be paid for at the time of purchase. Personal cheques or debit cards are not accepted. Regrettably, the ship is not able to offer a money-changing service on board as this would be contravening official regulations.

    POST

    The vessel’s gift shop sells postcards and stamps for you to purchase (subject to availability) and items can be posted on your behalf by the ship’s crew (although as they are unable to do so each day, this could take longer than if you were to post yourself). Please note that neither the ship nor Noble Caledonia can be held responsible for items of post that are not successfully delivered on your behalf.

    A questionnaire shall be provided to all passengers towards the end of their sailing. We would be grateful for you to complete and return this.
