Crescendo IV Guest Reviews

Recent Guest Comments

Captain,

Tracie and I feel obligated to give a brief synopsis of our experience with your team. Please feel free to share this with the crew, your owner and anyone else you wish.
Our honeymoon experience is one we will never forget and you and your team helped us make these beautiful memories.

Service Organizations are judged by 5 metrics which I have a pneumonic called
RARE Tangibles
1. Responsiveness: The crew exceeded our expectations. We felt as if each member was constantly asking “What can I do next”
2. Assurance: We had confidence in each team member, especially Captain Michael who navigated our needs despite a pandemic and a storm that came in during our charter. Simply stated, my wife and I felt safe “Always.” Laura even sent David as our “personal bodyguard” when we simply went for a walk while in St Martin at night.
3. Reliability: All of our needs and expectations were met and then some. Laurás attention to details, Dariós Michelin 3 caliber cooking and Sven safely taking us to beaches and other areas, even in rough seas.
4. Empathy: Tracie and I both felt a bond with the crew. We felt, and the crew made us feel as if we were family. Furthermore the crew often made us feel as if we were part of the Royal Family. We felt as if Captain and crew truly cared about our needs.
5. Tangibles: The refit of the yacht was impeccable. The presentation of the food looked and tasted like a Michelin 3 restaurant, the amenities looked like the Ritz Carlton and the service was impeccable. Even going out fishing with Sven we could tell he was doing all he could to give us the fishing experience we wanted. It was all about us, the customers.
Tracie and I know that this level of service and offerings are hard. We have about 850 employees in our company so we know what great looks like.

Truly Yours,

August 2021 - Newport
From the moment we arrived it was clear it was going to be a different experience than the past
Captain Mike was amazing
Crew were always there but not in the way
It was all about making us comfortable and happy
Crew got along great with our group when we were having fun they were having fun with us

Boat was beautifully decorated and so comfortable
Plenty of space in both the sun and shade and also places for us hang as a whole group together
Plenty of places to “hide” and relax
Could be as formal or informal as you wanted
