The Captain and Crew - Aboard the MS Island Sky, high quality service and attention-to-detail come as standard. The professional and attentive crew cater to your every need, and thanks to a high ratio of crew-to-passengers, you'll enjoy a level of truly personalised service that far exceeds your expectations. Arrive on board as a guest, and leave your journey feeling more like a member of your onboard family.
Local Guides - We understand that in certain locations, it takes a local to show you the hidden gems that only residents know about. That's why, in most destinations on your APT Small Ship cruise, you'll gain a deeper insight and enjoy the added benefit of in-depth commentary from expert local guides.
Cruise Director - From the moment you are greeted at the airport until your departure flight home, an APT representative is with you for the entirety of your holiday to ensure a stress-free and seamless experience. While on the MS Island Sky, an APT Tour Director is with you.
Guest Speakers - Expert guest speakers are sure to enhance your onboard experience. With their specialist knowledge, they will introduce you to the culture and history of the places you visit, as well as making themselves available for informal chats.
Expedition Team - On an APT Expedition cruise, you’ll venture into some of the most remote and intriguing corners of the earth. To ensure you get the most out of your adventure, all Expedition cruises are led and organised by our outstanding onboard Expedition Team. These hand-picked experts are specialists in their field. They are naturalists, historians and ecologists who will share their knowledge and enthusiasm with APT guests. They will coordinate the daily programme and hold talks and briefings throughout the cruise. Whether it be an historian retelling fascinating stories, or the marine biologist who dives into the open water to film a rare underwater scene for guests to experience on screen, your Expedition Team truly bring these magnificent regions to life.
Stylish Social Spaces
The MS Island Sky offers the perfect balance between the spacious comfort of a large ocean liner and the boutique advantages of a smaller ship.
The stylish lounge area hosts daily briefings and talks throughout the voyage, and a pianist plays regularly at the elegant bar. The onboard library is stocked with books, games and computers with internet access
Outside, you'll find the rear sun deck, where delicious meals are served in warm weather under shade, a bar and comfortable deck furniture for relaxing with a book. On the top deck there is a further observation and sun deck. There is also a small hairdressing salon with appointments available upon request.
Depending on your itinerary, an exciting range of onboard entertainment awaits, whether it be an insightful lecture on the regions you're visiting, or a classical pianist performance in the elegant lounge.
