We had high expectations but you have exceeded all of them. The food was absolutely fantastic, as were the cocktails and the table decorations. The crew were faultless and always on hand to help us out. We got to do all the activities we wanted to, and had a great time doing them. Every little detail was thought out so well and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect week!

What wonderful experience! The many places that you took us to and the many things we were able to see and do will be a splendid memory for years to come. By far, the best feature was the fabulous food. Day after day the chef knocked it out of the park! fresh bread, vegetables and main courses added inches to my waistline. The crew was cohesive and singularly focused on our comfort and satisfaction. They do it right on Akasha. I would welcome an opportunity to sail with this group again.

Had the most amazing time, thank you so much for everything. The food was absolutely stunning, the sailing was really fun, but the highlight had to be the tubing/waterskiing surrounded by beautiful scenery. Will miss being able to go diving so easily and seeing awesome underwater world. Thanks again and hope to see you again soon.

I love you Akasha!
