Service on board
Let us pamper and accompany you fully on your vacation. Relax on deck and enjoy the warm sun. Or you can be more active and learn about sailing and diving.
The cabins (shower/WC) are equipped with fresh bed linen, shower and standard towel per person as well as floor towel and hand washing gel. We check the cabins daily and change the shower towels once per cruise. We ask you to be economical with your water consumption during the trip. Our on-board shower on deck washes away most of the salt from the sea – we ask you to be thoughtful here as well.
Food & on-board restaurant
From the coffee in the morning to the cocktail in the evening. We attune the taste to the weather, the region and your desires. What is so special about our on-board restaurant? Tastefully coordinated culinary delicacies are lovingly arranged and served in the open air. Every meal has a story and a special flavor. The morning starts hearty and strong with fresh, tasty organic bread and international delicacies. The 3-course menu in the evening tastefully rounds off the culinary experiences of the day. Sometimes sumptuous, sometimes light, sometimes hearty and often in line with the respective region: but always delicious in any case.

Mobile Internet connection and data roaming is possible almost in all coastal regions.
Due to the fact that roaming costs were banned throughout the EU, you can make your calls at costs similar to Germany. If you need a lot of data volume, you should buy it before the start of the trip or at the airport. Many ports also offer Internet cafes and Wi-Fi connection. On board there is no Wi-Fi connection.

T-shirts & caps
You can purchase T-shirts and caps with the “Sir Robert logo” on board.
The clothing on board during the day is casual (T-shirts, shorts). Swimwear is not desired during meals and below deck. As a rule, it is always a bit cooler and windier on the water, so a light wind jacket, long trousers, long-sleeved shirt and head protection because of the wind are recommended. This clothing is also useful for restaurant and land visits.
Sun protection is important: Sunglasses, sun cream, headgear, caps, towels, light sun covers.
On board you can walk barefoot or with sandals. Furthermore, we ask for clean sport or boat shoes with a non-slip sole. We also recommend hiking boots for shore excursions and hikes.
