This trip has been amazing and I would recommend it to anyone.
The trip on the Swan...has been one of the most amazing experiences in my life
This opportunity has been a complete eye opener for me and I can only hope to do something like this again
It’s hard to think that 12 days ago we didn’t know each other at all but now were like a family sharing laughs and mischief
We have so many memories to share; the magic of the Mareel, the plunging waves and gales leaving us with salt swept hair
