Was the crew friendly and accommodating? Top notch.....they didnt blink an eye at any and all requests. Just the opposite.
Was the yacht comfortable and clean? The yacht was brand new. We were the second group on it. It was immaculate.
Was the food good and well presented? Phillipa is a world class chef. Amazing array of dishes all through the week. ANYTHING you could think of she was on it. She spoiled us horribly.
Additional comments on your charter? I would highly recommend spending the extra money for a high end yacht with a true captain and chef. Had we Bare Footed this trip it would have been WAY stressful.
