More akin to a floating hotel than a cruise ship, the striking silver-clad guntû showcases the astounding beauty of the Seto Inland Sea in the most stylish and exclusive way possible. Indoor communal spaces are spacious and minimalist, with large windows allowing plenty of light to pour in and illuminate the light wooden interiors, tastefully designed by the acclaimed Japanese architect Yasushi Horibe. Guest suites are purposely built low to the water, meaning the morning view from your comfortable bed or inviting terrace leaves you feeling completely immersed in the natural wonder of the Seto Inland Sea from the moment you wake.
Between admiring the natural beauty of passing islands and sailing beneath the Great Seto Bridge, guntû offers plenty to keep you engaged. An array of wellness activities ensures plentiful opportunities to reach a state of complete relaxation. Unwind in the communal baths overlooking the waters, or indulge in a traditional Japanese-style Nentai massage or the signature Choukoku Lymph treatment. However you choose to unwind, guntû accommodates treatments on a bespoke basis to suit your individual needs.
For further indulgence, enjoy sensational cuisine in the variety of onboard restaurants. The intimate six-seater sushi bar boasts panoramic views of the passing landscape and some of the best sushi in the country. Meanwhile, washoku (traditional Japanese cuisine) and yoshoku (a style of Japanese cooking with a western influence) can both be enjoyed in the Dining Room, where the chef will prepare a fresh catch according to your preferences.
Unlike conventional cruises, itineraries are revealed a week or two before departure while the schedule of off-ship activities remains undisclosed until you've boarded, adding an air of mystery to your journey. Opt for a westward itinerary, focusing on uncovering regional history and landscapes; a central route delivering breathtaking sights as you anchor amidst the natural splendour of the Seto Inland Sea's islands; or an eastward itinerary offering immersive experiences in local culture through visits to rolling olive gardens and utterly striking art galleries.
