  • I was looking to book a room but when looking at the pictures it showed different types of room, I would like to choose one of the rooms on top of the boat in the letters but that option when payinng doesn't come up just standard rooms. Anyway we can pick our room type

    Good afternoon, The rooms on top of the boat have a different rate, if you dont get an option to book it, it's because they are not available for the date you want to book. We only have 5 rooms of this type and they sell out quickly.
