BLACK SWAN Testimonials
We just returned from a fabulous week on the Black Swan. It is a beautiful boat with an even better crew! The food and service were over-the-top. We would highly recommend it to any of your clients.
Getting back to our world was certainly difficult, if not hellacious and depressing. We all much preferred our life while on Black Swan in the safely and care of your hands. Stories continue to be told and entertain us all. Everything from beginning to end was absolutely spectacular and an incredible experience. Elizabeth has always been a talented chef but her continued passion and quest for ongoing education and knowledge certainly has elevated her cuisine to an unanticipated level I was thrilled to share with my friends. Her hard work and discipline were clearly displayed on the plate and appreciated by our palates. The only drawl back - not being able to spend more time with her delightful and fun spirit. Thank you to all of the crew for creating such a memorable and unique experience for not just each and every one of us, but also for us as a group of friends. MARCH 2013
We have told our family and friends it was the BEST vacation ever! (and that's saying something considering how old we are!) Not only were the food, service and accommodations simply amazing, having you all for crew was really special. We felt, first and foremost, safe in your hands and Elizabeth's culinary expertise was like eating at Le Cirque every single day, for every single meal, and Idrina's smile, hospitality and relentless service was like none other. We loved being on Black Swan (a magnificent vessel), but it was all of you who truly made the experience. So many laughs, so many lifetime memories, so many beautiful sights that I can still see when I close my eyes. MARCH 2013
Just landed in Miami and I didn't bother to look at my emails the entire trip -that's saying something about true relaxation.
Everyone and everything was fantastic! Loved the boat and the new additions to the crew. It really was amazing all around!
