Dedicated Staff

The Captain and Crew - Aboard the MS Caledonian 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 Luxury 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 Caledonian 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.
