Variety Voyager

The Variety Voyager is a newly built, private yacht which was built under the latest International SOLAS regulations and classified by the American Bureau of Shipping, the Variety Voyager guarantees guests safety with considerable comfort and elegance. If you find large resort style vessels accommodating many thousands of passengers attractive then of course this isn’t the vessel for you. However, if you prefer a more peaceful life at sea and an atmosphere more akin to a private yacht then you need look no further.

  • Life Onboard

    Part of the joy of a cruise aboard the Variety Voyager is its capability to dock in small ports or drop anchor in any suitable spot, unlike the large ships which can only dock in the larger ports with all the supporting infrastructure necessary to service the vessels. With a maximum of only 72 guests, our trips ashore will be a pleasure as we explore with local guides. Onboard the atmosphere is informal with ample public space to relax with a book or to join new found friends to discuss the day’s events. Throughout the vessel you will find unobstructed views and the professional crew of 28 will ensure impeccable service.
