Minister St Ange and guests on board MV Pegasus for the inaugural Garden of Eden programme

The MV Pegasus, the third generation small ship business, set sail from the Eden Island marina last weekend for its eight-day cruise programme across the Seychelles inner islands.
 
Intrigued by the diversity and by the vibrant atmosphere of the Seychelles islands, the MV Pegasus is offering an intimate experience of the country’s most beautiful granitic islands.
 
Once in Seychelles, the sprawling MV Pegasus Garden of Eden’s tailored programme will bring visitors to an island hopping experience at the discovery of the country’s stunning spots and beaches off the coasts of Sainte Anne, Cerf, La Digue and the Sister islands, before moving to Praslin, Curieuse, Cousin, Aride before returning to the main island of Mahé.
 
Sailing the Seychelles archipelago on a four, five and eight-day cruise programme on board an all-inclusive chic elegance floating hotel designed with spacious living accommodation is a not-to-miss intimate experience of how best to explore Seychelles through the filter of the cruise ship’s windows. 

Anchoring at the inner islands, the MV Pegasus’ welcoming crew takes its clients to the discovery of Seychelles’ unspoilt paradise and a dive or snorkelling into the amazing underwater world.

In a bid to bring this new niche product to the local destination management companies (DMC), and to launch the Garden of Eden programme, the cruise ship’s senior partner and executive vice-president for development and marketing, Yiannis Vontas hosted a small welcome reception on board MV Pegasus.

Tourism and Culture Minister Alain St Ange, who was the guest of honour, said the presence of MV Pegasus would surely bring more diversity in the products being offered to discerning visitors.

“Seychelles was conceived with sailors in mind. What we have to offer to cruise ship passengers and our sailing boat cruises remains unrivalled. The diversity of islands blessed with clean and white sandy beaches being lapped with clean and clear turquoise blue seas are unique selling points of our islands, and this on a year-round basis because we remain the tropical mid-ocean islands called the islands of perpetual summer,” said Minister St Ange.
