We had one of the best vacations ever. The Captain is great; he’s always aware of all details related to the comfort of their guests. The food was superb. The places we visited are fabulous. We were sad when it was over. Thanks a lot for your advice on choosing a boat. We made a great decision thanks to you. Hope is all well. Muchas Gracias. Jose.
- Was very impressed by the high quality of everything - the boat, the chef, the service
- Capt. Bruno was great - very accommodating. Chef Reman's food was phenomenal. They were surprised at the different types of food he cooked. 3rd crew member had a great personality and the three of them made a great team. I asked him how was their English and communication and he said Bruno and Reman spoke good English. No communication problems.
- Enjoyed stopping at the small towns. Not crazy about Salerno.
Overall they had a fabulous time, boat was in great condition and spacious.
We only returned home on Sunday and we have not really had the energy to check the emails. We are all resting from the most fantastic weeks holiday I think any of us have ever had. Truely it was an amazing experience aboard Montecristo with the fabulous crew led by Bruno. The yacht was perfect for the 8 of us and the weather was kind to us all week with hot bright sunshine 6.5 days out of 7.
As for the chef Raman (not spelt correctly) he was superb and we all felt that he performed beyond all our expectations. You were right, as you said we had lunch once ashore on Capri but all other meals were on board.
The best sword fish we have had, the freshest lobster and a very fine vongole, massive snapper and sea bass! what more could be wish for....
In short I would say that whole experience exceeded our expectations and was one the best holidays of our lives, if not the best. It was our 25th anniversary after all, so it needed to be great, but it most definitely was.
Bruno is a fantastic skipper and I particularly liked the way he tuned in to the guests and their needs, He put us first all of the time and when we had requests, his response was always "Si it's no problem" and this became a catch phrase.
So I would like to also thank you, for our charter being every bit as good as you said it would be. Thank you, it ment so much to both of us on our special week.
Catch up soon I hope.
"We are about half way through the trip and we all want to say that the boat and the crew are wonderful. Bruno could not be nicer and cooperative. The food is fantastic. We are having a great time."Bernie
"We had a very nice holliday in the Eoleans. The boat was in very good condition, very clean and tidy, and everything on board worked perfectly.
The crew was very nice to us and very professional. Rajman The cook was superb, Emma the lady who served the table, was very kind, well behaved, intelligent and was a pleasure to treat her and chat with her. Bruno the captain was also very nice, in good disposition, discreet and very professional."
