The room have safe yes! And it's easy to use.
Hi everyone, Just wondering what the 'day boat' is like on Pelican Cruises? The other option i'm looking at is Aphrodite? Does anyone know what either day boat is like? It seems on a 2 night / 3 day cruise we spend all Day 2 on a small day boat - is it a large boat, or just a small run about with shade? And does it have a toilet on board? I can't see any photos of it anywhere? Sorry such a girl question to ask about toilets!! ;) Thanks, Melissa
