Friendly, good faces all times for all 14 days!!! Very helpful, quiet and playful with the kids. I have a large service team and I know how difficult it is to maintain excellent appearance all times. This crew is impeccable all times!!! The captain has great tips and is very willing to conform all guests for agreement of best place. In all the years that I have been on charter boats, this crew is the best ever! I can easily say that there is not much space for improvement. Congratulations, I can recommend you all 1000%!!!
