We went on a cruise to Sicily at the end of September 2012. It was really very nice. We embarked in Palermo and then we visited the Aeolian islands. We have never seen a place like this!N.P.
Beautiful, especially the fantastic colors of the sea: turquoise, green, blue. The fishermen brought us fresh fish on board every day, and the very friendly and capable chef cooked them for us in all kinds of different ways. The breakfast was very nice especially the fresh Sicilian orange juice. The boat was very comfortable, spacious and well designed. We had 2 days of bad weather and the skipper, who was very good and kind, brought us in the tender to some small bays with crystal clear water and white sandy beaches. We have some great swims and incredible snorkeling.
Congratulations to all the staff who with their kindness and professionalism ‘gave us an unforgettable week.
We spent a week cruising on the Riviera yacht last August, with 4 days in the Bay of Naples, visiting Capri, Positano and Ischia, and 3 days sailing round the islands of Ventotene and Ponza. We enjoyed ourselves greatly, the sea is fantastic, the islands beautiful and the people very welcoming.
The Riviera yacht is very comfortable, especially the cabins. The staff is very helpful and professional.
The chef caught octopus and made an exquisite dish of spaghetti. The skipper prepared delicious aperitifs at sundown.
It really was an unforgettable experience.
We spent a week as a family on the Riviera yacht from 22 July. It was an unforgettable experience. Capri, Ischia, Positano, the Amalfi Coast – all magical places. The yacht is very comfortable, its staff extremely kind and helpful. The chef prepares exceptional evening meals with the freshest of fish, the skipper is professional and very likeable.
We will definitely be doing it again next year.
