Picton Castle – Accommodation & Layout



Accommodation Below

There is one room reserved for girls only (the Bat Cave) and one for guys (the Bro Cave), however the largest sleeping compartment is co-ed. It is not possible to reserve a specific bunk – it is first come, first served. We will always do all that we can to accommodate people who are unwilling to be in a co-ed room, however once the single sex cabins rooms are full, they are full.  Each bunk has a privacy curtain which you can pull shut any time you like.

 Fiji – Ships Cat

Fiji has been on board since…well Fiji.  She was a tiny kitten when she first signed on before the mast, so she probably has better sea legs than you…but perhaps no the same work ethic.
