Crown Prince Haakon has shared his opinion following all the public criticism he attracted because of a holiday recently which saw the Prince and Crown Princess Mette-Marit, his wife, relished their time abroad on the superyacht Mia-Elise.

On Tuesday, while speaking out for his eleven-year-old daughter Princess Ingrid Alexandra’s scout tour, Crown Prince Haakon defended all his actions and stated that he would not have done anything in a different way.
Prince Haakon reportedly stated that he has seen that there has been a whole lot of interest around this. For them, it was an invite one of their close buddies. They were visiting for a few days. There has been a lot of speculation regarding the whole thing. It was as simple as that. He added that he does not think that he has any special interests in Norway at all.

James Clark, who is a sales broker with Burgess, said that its best feature, in addition to being refitted recently by the owner’s team in Fort Lauderdale, is that this is ready for the all new owners. And it would be a really great charter vessel. The boat is priced at $29.5 million.

Made in the year 2003, Cakewalk underwent an equipment transition this year, with new decor by Liz Dalton. The boat could accommodate thirteen guests in 6 cabins. The full-beam stateroom is put together in a split-level pattern.
