They anticipated our every wish and need, minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, day-by-day. Thank you.

Dear Captain Paul

What an incredible week we had on Sweet Escape, in large part because of you and your wonderful crew.

Wow! I don’t know where to begin to thank you for an experience our family will talk about for years to come. As you know from our conversations our family is fortunate to have traveled a lot. We picked Croatia because none of us had been there. That was a good start because it is wonderful. Then we really hit the jackpot when our charter broker recommended Sweet Escape.

What an experience! Our family wanted to stay on board, read, talk and do water activities—and did they ever do the water toy program! Your crew went beyond the call of duty to be patient with us learning how to ride all the toys. We loved it.

The food was outstanding. All the meals were a delight and the service of the wait staff was over the top. My wife and daughter (who is an interior designer) took a picture of every table setting because they could have all been in a magazine. We loved the food so much and found the portions to be so perfect that we never felt as though we’d eaten too much nor did we all gain a lot of weight. Congratulations for that. Very well done.

Now, about you, Capt. Paul. You were terrific. Thank you for running a safe, tight, well supervised boat. It is noticed and appreciated. Please receive my family’s most sincere thanks and gratitude for taking such good care of our family.

Bottom line. This was an unparalleled experience that we will not soon forget.
Thank you, thank you, thank you,

What an amazing trip! We worked and planned this adventure through Croatia for a year, and it surely paid off! The fabulous crew of Motoryacht Sweet Escape took absolute care of all our needs before we even knew what we needed ourselves. They could not have been more attentive! We will all miss them! The yacht was a gem, we never lacked for an activity! The food was fantastic each day. Our family thanks you all, each and every one, for the most wonderful trip of a lifetime. We hope to see you all again in the near future. XO.

Dear Captain Paul & Crew,

This last week has truly been a blessing and a lifelong memory for our family. While Sweet Escape is phenomenal and our natural surroundings incredibly picturesque, it has been your care and service to our family that has made this vacation!
We cannot remember another holiday opportunity when we have all felt so cared for. From the moment we woke up in the mornings until our heads hit the pillows each night—one of you was always looking out for us. Thank you so much for truly caring not only for our comfort but also for our safety. We will never forget all of the wonderful meals, our squeaky clean cabins, the hours & hours & hours on the “toys”, our trips into quaint towns, champagne conversations, safe and professional travel and most of all, your company and friendship. Thank you again for caring for us. We will always cherish this week!
