Radiance Guest Reviews
RADIANCE - broker reference August 2022 charter
Captain Fabiano was a dream to work with. He was so communicative and he really went the extra mile to make the clients happy. He even found a few gyms for them to work out at, which is next to impossible along the Amalfi coast normally and they still have covid protocols in place. My clients said the boat was immaculate.

After a special journey to start our holiday, we were able to find peace and calmness on RADIANCE. Fabiano and the crew welcomed us with open arms and made us feel at ease from the first minute. Suzanne and Gabby were wonderful. The food was amazing and so was the service. The same can be said for Fabiano, Enrico and Thibaud. They showed us wonderful places and beaches around Antigua. All together the team and the boat were wonderful and our stay on board has been lovely! Thank you, Family M.
RADIANCE Charter in the San Blas March 2023
Radiance is beautiful—the perfect mix of functionality, class, and comfort. The crew was fantastic. The chef Shannon created wonderful meals for us. My wife and I eat vegan, and the chef seamlessly created special vegan versions of every meal that were wonderful. Captain Fabiano was terrific, making us feel welcome, cared for, and safe. He is great to be around. The stewardess, Gabi, went above and beyond to take care of our every need, without once making us feel like a burden. Most of all, the first mate, Enrico, made the trip truly special. He is incredibly genuine and likable. ... shuttled us around on the tender, took us exploring and watched over us while we were snorkeling. All in all, I couldn’t imagine a more magical time. Thank you, Radiance and crew!

Thank you, team Radiance, for giving us the trip of a lifetime, that far reached our expectations! Captain Fabiano was a joy, answering all our questions, and making sure our simple pleasures were met and did so with an infectious smile. First mate, Enrico (who we also dubbed our entertainment director) was simply awesome!! ... Gabby was our stew… She was very polite, but also had a fun little goofy side that we all loved. ... Our rooms were always immaculate, and it was a joy to just feel relaxed knowing she was taking care of things. Shannon cooked AMAZING meals and it couldn’t have been easy with all our different likes, dislikes and dietary needs. We woke up in the morning to beautiful breakfasts, enjoyed lunches on the beach, and the dinners were always amazing - we could not have asked for a better dining experience!! Thibaud was a little quieter than the rest of the crew but is charming and answered all of our questions and was so pleased when we asked to see his engine room! We enjoyed our tour and were so impressed by the knowledge that he must possess to be able to keep everything running so smoothly!!
