Testimonials from guests on La Grande Bellezza
February Guests Said:
We had a wonderful time on our trip. My friends absolutely loved it! Let’s start with the highlights which was most definitely the crew. Dayne is such a professional and did an amazing job captaining the boat. He was diligent about our safety and ensuring we were all comfortable and having a good time. He was so enjoyable to be around. His knowledge of the area was such a bonus too. I’d highly recommend him as a Captain to anyone!
Chef Marie was absolutely wonderful and such a professional. Every meal was amazing in both taste & presentation. We loved everything she prepared for us! She was especially great about accommodating the vegetarian in our group and my one friend who is gluten-free. We looked forward to each meal to see & taste what she had made for us and they were all fantastic from breakfast to desserts.
Both Dayne & Marie kept the boat clean and were so accommodating with anything we needed. They really made our time that much more enjoyable and we truly enjoyed getting to know both of them.
The boat itself was lovely, very spacious. We spent much of our time up on fly-bridge and using some of the water toys including the floating mat (big hit!), the stand-up paddle boards and snorkeling equipment. The master cabin was amazing too – I loved it!
