Akiko Guest Reviews

Charter Client, 3-week Christmas charter, December 2019 in Papua New Guinea

“The Principal thinks that the yacht was built to a very high standard and is structurally in very good condition.. It is exceptionally quiet and the stabilizers are excellent. The artworks on board are beautiful.
The toys and dive equipment were very good.
The crew were all very good. He commented that Greg, as Captain, bent over backwards to ensure that they had the best experience and he appreciated that very much. Craig, the guide, was clearly well-connected and was good at explaining local customs, culture, etc.
The chef was really good and produced excellent food.
The chief stewardess was efficient and also a “phenomenal” trainer for their daily workout on deck.
The Principal confirmed it was an outstanding charter and the holiday of a lifetime. It is rare that I receive such positive and effusive reviews from him, so I can only say WELL DONE to you and your crew for an amazing job! He was still buzzing when he spoke to me.”
