More Amore actually exceeded my expectations. It was roomier than I was expecting and in good repair. Great places up top and in front to enjoy the scenery. The bedding was so comfortable that we all got the name of the bedding so we might purchase it for our own homes, LOL.
I can not brag on Danny and Laura enough. We feel soooo fortunate that these two were are crew for the week. It was so obvious that they genuinely wanted us to have a wonderful week and they did EVERYTHING in their power to make the week special for us. The weather was less that perfect during the first part of the week, but they helped us make the best of it…we all kind of took their lead and ignored the rain!! Every request we had they met. In addition, they were great about coming up with activities that they felt our group would enjoy. They knew that we had several triathletes in our group and they made a great effort to get us to areas where we could hike, run and swim.
Captain Danny: we never felt of moment of trepidation about our safety. Danny was unbelievably competent. Twice in the middle of the night we had generator issues and Danny was up with a flashlight and tools to get us up and running again in short order. We LOVED hanging out with him up on the fly bridge because he was sooooo knowledgeable about the history of the area….for example, he didn’t just take us to the wreck of the Rhone to snorkel, he told us the whole story of the wreck, how it happened and why…he knew all the pirate history from the area and told us great stories. He was also an encyclopedia of sailing information…it was SUCH a pleasure to hear him tell stories and to just see his pure love of sailing and the history of the islands.
Chef Laura: all I can say is that she is going to make a wonderful mother one day. We could not get over the fact that she was only 26 years old. Her chef skills were fantastic! We ate like kings and queens. But the thing that touched all of us so much was the absolutely beautiful Thanksgiving meal she put on the table for us. The girl made homemade gnocchi, she cooked a full turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, mash potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce….it all came out of that tiny galley. We were in awe...and so touched by the love she put into that meal. It was so, so special. I mentioned that John’s Bday was on the 25th and we woke up to a big Happy Birthday banner for John on his day. Laura made a special dessert for him that evening! We had a few food requests and they were all met too!
We just all fell in love with Danny and Laura…if we ever do this again, and they are still around, we will be searching them out again. They were simply outstanding.
