M/Y Variety Voyager Coming in 2012

The Variety Voyager design features sleek lines and ample deck space. A 28-member service crew is also available.

Fares for “Romantic Rivieras” and “Treasures of South Italy and Malta” include accommodations in double or twin cabins with private bathrooms and air conditioning; American buffet breakfast and two main meals daily; use of fishing equipment (subject to availability); coffee, water or tea; and an English speaking cruise escort.
