I am pleased to say that we have had an incredible holiday. Riviera was just what we were looking for and the crew could not have been nicer or more attentive with us and our guests. They were always making sure our holiday was wonderful. Antonino is a great Captain, responsible and always making sure we had a good time. Salvatore the best chef we could have found and Teresa always looking after us. It has been just an incredible holiday!
So, thank you very much for a job well done!

Gregorio is young but sharp, always smiling and helpful. My 20 years old daughter thought he was good looking and flirted with him constantly but he was very professional!
Chief Stewardess Giusi was fantastic, she speaks a great English, on the spot always, friendly and my whole family loved her!! Chef Daniele was awesome, pretty hard to make Gluten Free meals but they were great!!
Thank to you both for another wonderful charter

We discovered beautiful bays and had fests all along. Emiliano helped Alexis with the wake and he really loved it.

Well now that we are all back home and have returned to our “real life”, I wanted to thank Flying Charter team and Captain Antonino on behalf of all my family for all that you did for us – for your professionalism, your boating expertise, your local knowledge and your winning personality. We all truly had the time of our lives! We have never travelled in such grand style or had so much fun together. It was very special for us and you were the one responsible to make that happen. Salvatore’s fantastic cuisine, as well as his boating skills, and Theresa’s smiling face and willingness to help each and every day to all of our requests, made for a perfect combination of crew. Thanks to you all from the bottoms of our hearts.

The yacht is perfect and the crew is outstanding. We had some problems due to a couple days of bad weather but they have been brilliantly and quickly fixed.The Captain is a real leader and problem solver, and the rest of the crew is incredible too, they’re far above average standards. I invited different guests on board during my stay and they were all totally satisfied. I will definitely be back next year, thank you all!

, Guest of 20m to 30m Santa Lucia - 04/01/2019-10:17
Star OnStar OnStar OnStar OnStar On

We loved the trip!!! We could not have asked for more. Everything was perfect. On day one we left in the afternoon for Vulcano island and arrived late afternoon which was very nice. The port is quite simple but quaint. There is a mud bath as part of the thermal treatment from the volcano. The day after we headed to Volcano island and went on an early morning climb to the crater. It only took 45 mins each way but for anyone who has never seen a smoking crater it was impressive!! After that we rented quads and toured the island. In the afternoon we decided not to follow the original itinerary to Panarea as the captain predicted that there would be strong winds mid week in Panarea. I was impressed that the captain was always studying the weather so that we experienced as little bad weather or strong winds as possible. The towns of Panarea and Salina were the nicest island towns. Panarea had great stores, restaurants and bars. We had a beautiful excursion on the Santa Lucia to some small islands between Panarea and Stromboli. Beautiful swimming, calm waters and very interesting sulphur bubbles under the water. On Wed afternoon as the winds started to pick up in Panarea we went to Lipari. The captain opened the sails which was a nice experience! Lipari is a very nice large town with a very nice old historic district that has a cathedral and museum. It was fun to tour the different parts of the islands and we also took the tender of the Santa Lucia to swim in a nice area across the Unesco protected Porticello stone mine. On Friday morning we left for Salina, another beautiful small town and island. Very nice island, we had an excellent lunch and toured the island in rented cars.. In a nearby town (near the lighthouse) 'Alfredo's' has the best graniti in Sicily. On the way back to the port of Milazzo in Sicily we stopped at Vulcano island for another night which was very nice. As for the crew, captain Maurizio is an extremely experienced and confident Captain. He knows the boat very well. He plans carefully to avoid bad weather but consults frequently to make sure we are comfortable with his decisions. He is an excellent chef and buys fresh ingredients every day. He knows the islands very well and gave me excellent advice when we arrived at each island. He also knew the best restaurants and called them in advance to reserve. Luca, the son of Captain Maurizio, is a great deputy to his father and Elisa and Sam were extremely nice and always looking for the best way to provide anything that we needed. The service was always exceptional. THANK YOU! I'm already thinking of Amalfi and Sardinia for next year!

Also, thanks for recommending the Regina Isabella SPA, it was the best massages we ever had! because of your efforts, we really had a wonderful time in Ischia and all the other amazing places.

The time we spent on the Nafisa has really been great.

The crew was truly kind, efficient and always smiling. The Captain was very experienced, flexible and always willing to help and this made our holiday truly unforgettable. The yacht has been renewed and is very well maintained. There’s plenty of toys and we enjoyed them all. The external spaces are huge and it’s a pleasure to sunbathe and dine on the sundeck.

We’ll definitely be back!

The yacht was “phenomenal”. It could not have been better. The crew, food, accommodations... everything was perfect.

The captain and crew were very attentive and the staff was excellent watching over the children. The chef was so accommodating and I truly appreciated that our nut allergy was taken so seriously: prior to our arrival the whole crew was informed about it and the entire galley had been deeply cleaned so no nut residue would be there.

Everyone did a tremendous, tremendous, tremendous job! I would recommend the boat, and crew to anybody without hesitation.

We had a great charter. Really enjoyed the boat and the crew. They had a great “can do” attitude and were really terrific at fading into the background and being flexible for whatever we wanted to do. Luanna the hostess was exceptional. Good English, great at doing the translation for us with the crew and always with a smile. They were a hard-working terrific group of people. As we had done the area four times before we knew some of the places we wanted to go, and Luanna was great at troubleshooting to get us reservations. We would certainly take the boat again.

Thanks so much for all your help. Until next year!

It was tough getting back to work as you can imagine. I can’t say enough about the crew and the Captain, they were just simply fantastic! The last night on the boat we decided to have dinner on board and invited the crew to join us for food and drink, they were not used to this they said, but truly enjoyed the interaction and told us that we were some of the best guests they had ever had. We loved the stories and being with them.
To sum it up, I would not hesitate to return to the Nafisa and its crew. Not sure if and when this will happen but we will talk again someday for some other event. Lastly, I want to especially thank you for all your help in planning my 50th party celebration, it was the trip of a life time to say the least!

We were totally satisfied with our 6 days on the Santa Lucia, especially with captain Felice and his crew, they all were extremely professional, polite, helpful, friendly and discreet. They fulfilled all our wishes in terms of sightseeing, swimming and food, and I (Manfred) even had an opportunity to do some windsurfing. The boat was in perfect shape, always clean and tidy, and big enough for all of us. The free WiFi whenever in reach of the TIM net was another very welcome feature. We spent a wonderful week and could recommend to everyone to repeat our experience.

It was not our first yacht charter but we never had such a beautiful experience. Flying Charter made everything smooth and simple. Carlo supported us from the beginning to the end of our unforgettable vacation and helped us in planning the best holiday we ever had. His precious suggestions about the yacht to charter, itinerary, places to visit and things to do helped us to get absolutely the best. The yacht was wonderful, the crew very professional yet very welcoming and friendly, and what to say about the food: a five star floating restaurant. We have already booked our next dream charter…
