See above. The team has always been very kind and really spoiled us. We were always well informed. Really exceptional cuisine. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
We gave the maximum evaluation because the holiday was really beautiful. The captain is an excellent person, the crew, especially the boys, courteous, efficient and extremely available. There are canoes, SUP, snorkelling equipment and fees for diving. Drinks for a fee but at a reasonable price, We were not absolutely satisfied with the food on board.Povero, poorly cooked and always the same flavor. Only two times they served the pasta that looked like glue and still had the taste of other things. Good feedback also for the ground staff. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
first class. Crew incl. Captain absolutely ok, the chef can do something. Extremely relaxed week with great experiences. With our fellow travelers we had good luck, overall very pleasant. Exemplary handling of gluten-free food, sometimes even separately and cooked extra (such as the pasta for spaghetti Bolognese, separate lasagna, baked gluten-free cake) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Sea Star. Good service from the staff and was allways feeling safe on board and on the exspeditions. Very Nice with glutenfree food for my wife.
