Born in the land of the Midnight Sun and impelled by the legendary sea-faring spirit of ancient Viking mariners, the 180-guest Song of Flower, renowned for her yachtlike ambiance, Scandinavian refinement and destination-intensive explorations of exotic ports, is designed to sidestep the beaten path, her European officers guiding her to pristine harbors and hidden ports that larger ships must pass by.
Aboard, there is an atmosphere of warmth and hospitality that emanates from the heart. The smiles are real, the service is superb and the staff is unfailingly gracious. Unhampered by the crowds and pretensions of larger ships, guests are revitalized in surroundings of relaxed, easy elegance.
The m/s Song of Flower's stellar attributes include luxurious ocean-view accommodations, six-star cuisine and lively entertainment. But more to the point is the unique life to be enjoyed onboard her. The one-of-a-kind port explorations. The enriching lectures by distinguished writers, diplomats and cultural experts. The camaraderie of friends enjoying a shared experience. And the untold moments: The aroma of a cup of Darjeeling tea which magically awakens you from an afternoon reverie. The glorious sense of just-born wonder of watching the dawn break in Bali. The caress of trade winds on skin warmed by the last rays of a sunset over the Andaman Sea. Heady stuff indeed!
Where to begin? Breakfast in your stateroom? Or taken al fresco under a blue and white umbrella on deck? A work-out in the gym or a soothing morning of aromatherapy and massage in the health club? A few drives in the golf cage or watching the seabirds dive in the Tonkin Gulf? Laps in the pool or an impromptu lesson in navigation on the Bridge?
First-time guests receive another pleasant surprise with which our repeat voyagers are already happily familiar. Many of the pleasures which are considered 'extras' on other ships are yours with our compliments aboard m/s Song of Flower. You'll never sign a check for cocktails in any lounge, fine wines accompanying lunch and dinner, or be charged for room service at any hour or the beverages in your stateroom bar. Nor will you need to consider gratuities, which are included with your fare. And our shore excursions, including day-long trips to fascinating sites like the Temple of Borobudur and the Torajan highland villages of Sulawesi are also included free of charge.
Sail with us on the ship that is as beloved as she is beautiful: m/s Song of Flower.
