Variety Cruises is relaunching year-round itineraries in the Seychelles from late December 2021 through 2024 with an enhanced guest experience highlighting local farm to table dining, a fresh juice bar, a refined onboard bar and lounge, and new to tours.

‘The Seychelles are a magical part of the world, and personally it’s important for me as my late father pioneered the small ship cruise industry here in 1996,’ said Variety Cruise’s CEO, Filippos Venetopoulos.

The three soft adventure itineraries offered by Variety Cruises’ 40 passenger capacity Pegasos include nature walks, daily swim and snorkeling stops and optional diving excursions.

Island hopping

Island hopping includes visits to the islands of Felicite and Moyenne. At the uninhabited islands of Aride, Cousin, and Curieuse, local boats pick up passengers from the beach for exclusive guides by park rangers through the protected nature reserves who share their personal stories.

The ship’s chefs prepare local gastronomy on the beach in Curieuse and Moyenne, while dive enthusiasts will explore excursions in Mahe and Praslin.

The three itineraries include an eight day round trip Mahe-Mahe; five day Mahe-Praslin and four day Praslin to Mahe, mini cruises.
