***Feb 4-18, 2021***
Guest One: Thank you so much for making this trip a safe success! Otherwise, I think all of us would have fallen or slipped off the ship at least once. You all were an overall 100/100 and I can’t imagine my time in the Bahamas would be even half as great as it was without you all. And, obviously Olga, your food was too good to be true. You are a truly talented chef – like, WOW! Breakfast, lunch and dinner were my favorite part of the day!!

Guest Two: Amazing trip with the best crew ever!

Guest Three: What can I say? This was simply the most a.m.a.z.i.n.g week ever! Each one of you have a very special place in my heart. Olga, your cooking was phenomenal! I will strive to come close, but I know nothing can compare to your talented cuisine.

WOW!!! Our first family boat trip and it was incredible! The staff, the islands, the boat - all were top notch and it was an amazing family experience!
July 5-12, 2020

WOW!!! Where do we begin?! We felt like family the minute we stepped on the yacht.

Captain Bill – you took us on so many great adventures, from feeding iguanas & pigs, playing on disappearing sand bars, riding the tide over and over, and snorkeling a reef inside caves and even a sea aquarium. You made sure our trip was customized just for us!
Chef Olga – every meal was better than the last! I’m surprised we didn’t sink the poor yacht with all the amazing food we ate. It’s obvious you put your heart into everything you prepare.
Novelette – With your sweet smile, you quietly made sure we had everything we needed before we even knew we needed it. Our rooms were always fresh. Our dirty clothes disappeared and magically showed up clean.
Johnny – what a fun fishing trip! Thanks for cooking our catch for the Independence Day lunch with all of your family recipes. Everything was so good and you even had our “no seafood” people eating fish.
Sarah – your effervescent personality was such a joy! Your presence was felt throughout the boat and you made it feel like home. We loved all the cocktails you created for us. We couldn’t wait for each meal to see how the table was decorated. So much imagination!

We had the most fantastic crew on the gorgeous Bella Contessa in one of the most beautiful countries we have ever traveled to. Thanks to you all for a trip we will always remember.

"ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, I believe that life is measured not by the time you lived but instead by the time you spent living. This week was lived well!!!! From the moment we stepped aboard and then stepped into every adventure you brought us to, it was INCREDIBLE. We fed Iguanas, pigs, stingrays, sharks and ourselves plenty. The cave dives and tube rids were FANTASTIC. Jumping from the deck and sliding down the slide, sitting on the bow or in the hot tub, was only made better by the incredible hospitality that was shared. Each meal was better than the next and the memories will be impossible to top! I am so very grateful for this week that I truly lived!"
