Feedback

We had wonderful holiday supported by a great enthusiastic crew.The snorkelling, swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding in such a beautiful pristine part of the world was superb.An honourable mention must be made for the Chef extraordinaire, he was passionate about every one of his creations and he far exceeded all previous chefs you have had on-board.The crew ensured that we had the best anchorage each evening and allowed us to safely discover the unspoilt islands of French Polynesia.Thanks again
