Fascinating insight to the grand liners of the past.Do the full tour including the engine rooms which brings home the size of the ship.Staff all speak English and are very knowledgeable . The best way to get to the ship is by water taxi.Experience how luxurious transport was.

We had drinks on the upperdeck, next to the pool, it was a sunny afternoon and with a little imagination I could see my self travelling to the VS, like my grandmother has done on this ship in 1955.

Family Day on the deck with the wading pool was very relaxing. Service was fast and food was good. It's a small place and yet the turn-over was good enough to accommodate many groups.

Nowadays this beautiful old lady is a hotel in which you can relive the old romantic cruising days and yet you do not move an inch, cause the ship never leaves the quay. All the staff, both in the hotel and the... More

Our guide sailed with ship and was involved in the transformation to the hotel that she is today. Apparently the vessel was completely stripped out (including removal of all asbestos which I believe was time... More
