NEWPORT, RI - JUNE/JULY 2015
The trip was amazing. The crew was fantastic and made you feel right at home. This was our first experience with this type of trip and the condition of the yacht and the crew made you feel like a million bucks. This is something we would be doing again in the future and would charter Vivere again.
