We have thoroughly enjoyed other luxury cruises(Seabourn) but were interested in this yachting experience and it was beyond all expectations. Essentially, it is a mobile luxury hotel affording you the opportunity to visit fabulous locations hassle free. With the size of the ship and the limited number of passengers, you have the opportunity to function entirely independently. Group excursions were small and actually fostered great camaraderie. Excellent and engaging local guides
Embarkation/disembarkation: seamless, both initially and at each port, like walking out of a hotel room
Ship: lovely, understated decor, with all areas easily accessible
Cabin: though smaller than some of our previous trips, it never felt small with well designed storage, also the bath was very large with a generous glass enclosed shower and two sinks and again lots of storage. Other reviews have been critical of the ac, but we experienced no problems
Dining: exceptionally good at all meals. Dinner was really a dining experience, like a fine restaurant,certainly not a move the crowd mentality. Additionally the accessibility of the yacht in general, allowed us to explore dining options in ports and easily return prior to departure.
Entertainment: Oliver was great in the piano bar, but honestly, not much partying after dinner with this crowd that had been active all day and was admittedly older. We might have enjoyed some group activities or enrichment lectures in the afternoons.
Service: impeccable and very personal
We would LOVE to take this trip again and would really like to go on the Esprit to a destination where we could take greater advantage of the paddle boards, kayaks, jet skis, etc
Nicely appointed with well designed storage, felt larger than sqft would indicate

Wonderful trip to Motovun including a fun and delicious lunch
Favorite Port! Our excursion was cancelled due to weather and this was for the best. Loved walking around this beautiful town, climbing the church tower and enjoying lunch on the waterfront promenade with the local Posip wine
