Hospitality on Board

We pride ourselves on the standards of hospitality we maintain on Irene.  If you’ve sailed other Tall Ships, you might be in for a surprise when you first climb on board.  From the private en-suite cabins to the commercial standard galley.  No expense has been spared to ensure we’re able to give you a first class experience.
