*This itinerary departs every second Monday. If a Monday does not appear in our list of sailing dates, it is either because we are fully booked for that Monday departure period or simply because we do not operate this specific itinerary on that Monday departure period due to our 15-day sailing cycle (to cover each separate region of the archipelago).
