Milk & Honey Guest Reviews

November 2021

´I found the crew to be genuine and really pleasant to talk to. The boat has a beautiful wood interior paired with pretty artwork and calming interior décor – it would appeal to anyone. She’s really in excellent condition!´
Broker

´MILK & HONEY looked very good and fresh. Her sun deck is well laid out with sun chairs and sun-pad, and the Jacuzzi is a real Jacuzzi, not a small one that squeeze people in. The Sky Lounge is cozy and well laid out. It was nice to see how they updated twin guest stateroom so it now can convert to a king.´
Broker

´MILK & HONEY looks fantastic. I have not been onboard for over 3 years and the refit looks amazing. Great spaces, light and bright and very clean. Crew was friendly, enthusiastic and on top of their game.”

My clients had a wonderful time on MILK & HONEY. In our performance evaluation they provided an “Above and Beyond all our Expectations” which is also the highest service rating that our clients can provide. They were first timers and are definitely hooked - thanks to the service of the crew. They will most definitely be back and most probably to MILK & HONEY hopefully soon!

I am happy to inform you that the two week charter of the yacht MILK & HONEY was a great success. The yacht has high-quality interior with beautiful appointment. It has a very convenient layout. The entire family, both my son and his family, my daughter and her family, and I enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The entire crew on the yacht MILK & HONEY was very accommodating, very friendly and very pleasant from am to pm. They were tireless in offering us activities such as water sports, etc.
I am glad I chartered the yacht for two weeks. It was just too nice to have to leave after one week.

´It was a perfect trip. Everyone had a wonderful time. The boat was better than I expected. It is a large volume boat. Felt like a 150 footer. Immaculate condition. The crew was excellent. Easy going but spot on all day, every day. Perfect meals. If we go again, we will probably look for this boat and this crew. Thank you for your professional handling of the entire trip.”
Charterer, June 2018

Testimonial

I have had the pleasure of assisting this family´s charters for over 16 years and feel this was the best follow-up report received from them yet. They had a GRAND time! They loved every minute aboard the MILK & HONEY, especially the Captain and crew. In particular, they appreciated the itinerary, the fact that the captain shared such intimate knowledge of the area, the yacht toys were always made ready ahead of time, the food. and the manner in which the crew was so attentive to each charter member. Everything went flawlessly and their Wedding Anniversary was a success all thanks to you! Kenny, I want to thank you and your crew for all the hard work during the charter and the coordination from you and your chef leading up to the charter. It is your professionalism that helped me with another successful charter and I look forward to working with you again in the very near future. Don´t be surprised if you see these individuals again on board MILK & HONEY for another ´holiday of fun´ in the near future.
