We love you guys! The trip of a lifetime!
We spent 10 days just the 8 of us and had a blast. The weather was fantastic. The excursions that crew entertained us with, the awesome meals everyday, every 5 hours!
The water toys, the Dinghy Slinging/Flinging, the fishing, the sunset hike, the snorkeling! The Kodak moments- the helicopter ride – I know I’m missing something – the sailing lessons, the Baths and rock climbing was my favorite! Necker Island tour – the Lemurs and the Parrots (Hello!). I think we are all happily exhausted.
We could never thank you enough for your hospitality and family love, best of luck in the future and we will see you guys again!
Let me start with the DOLCE VITA. She’s beautiful!
The DOLCE VITA offers a spacious fly bridge which is an absolute must have if you’re scouting yachts. The fly bridge allows you to sit up top shaded by the sun while enjoying the sail to your new destination. Down below, she has plenty of room to dine and lounge. The aft cabins are spacious, well appointed and offer plenty of storage space. The salon offers top of the line finishes and plenty of space. This yacht is perfect for two couples and can easily accommodate two couples with a couple kids.
The crew was extremely friendly and accommodating – They took great care of our family!
The week on Dolce Vita provided an amazing opportunity for our family to spread out, relax and reconnect with each other, while enjoying great activities in an incredibly beautiful part of the world.
When I told the crew that fresh food, beautifully prepared, was extremely important to our family, they absolutely nailed it in recommending the chef. Not only do they provide creative combinations of ingredients with beautifully balanced flavors in appetizers and entrees, but they also bakes incredible breads and desserts!
From the snorkeling and scuba, to the sailing, fishing, waterskiing and paddleboarding, we were busy and active when we wanted to be, and we also could just hang out on the fly bridge watching the stars, reading, or looking for turtles. The capitan gave us a feeling of complete confidence by his level of knowledge and his management of details, but we also appreciated his accessibility and sense of humor.
Let’s start with their best character traits. First, captain´s ability to handle any situation with a calm resolve and humble approach is truly remarkable. This is an attribute we all wish we had more of or surrounded ourselves with others that exhibited these traits more often.
As for the crew, them infecious smile accompanied by them bubbly personality will make anyone feel right at home. From the moment we first met and boarded the DOLCE VITA, they put their best character traits in action. The crew welcomed us as though we were long time friends and the captain graciously gave us the ground rules while making us feel as though there really were no rules…this was our kingdom for a week.
Somehow they make it all look easy (99% of the time anyway).
These two are in constant motion but will always stop to answer a question, ask you if there’s anything you need, or what you want to do for the day and they do it all with a smile. The food, oh my gosh the food! Initially, we filled out our itinerary stating that we intended to eat several meals on the islands. After the first meal we realized that this was a huge mistake and changed the itinerary.
Just one example, scrambled eggs. We’ve all had them, right? How do you make scrambled eggs any better than the next person? Well, try Jen’s! Ribs…truly amazing. Every dish prepared was excellent – They pay attention to every detail and combines flavors to make the perfect gourmet meal.
If you want a true yacht experience with a five star chef and top notch captain, look no further!
A truly memorable experience!
