Hello Donna. Thank you for your feedback, I am delighted to see you enjoyed your holiday. The vessel that you joined provides a vital link to the many small communities up and down the coast that have no other transport links to the outside world, so just by joining this cruise you were helping to sustain these communities. Additionally all of the food on board is sourced locally so once again those communities will benefit from the revenue derived from selling their produce as well as the employment and income generated in the communities from the excursions.
You can trust Responsible Travel reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
