The cruise

Sail away through the Bay of Naples and discover the magnificent Amalfi coast, a listed Unesco heritage site. The fishing ports and terraced housing with parasol pines along the coastline are so delightful, you're sure to fall in love. And naturally the local mozzarella de Buffala, the pride of the region, is to die for. It is a perfect region for hiking, bathing, sailing and lazing. You'll only have one regret: that at the end of your stay you'll have to come home.

Your skipper will introduce you to the wonders of the coastline. Depending on the weather conditions you might visit the beautiful seaside resort of Positano on the south-east tip of the Amalfi coast, which according to legend was created by Neptune, the god of the sea, in his efforts to seduce a nymph. The village is known for its many steep staircases which snake up to its summit from the beach. You'll also probably stop over in Capri. And that's not all: there is also an option to visit the beautiful island of Ischia and discover the magnificent panoramas and its typical fishing villages!
The hiking trails in the program are optional and guide charges are not included in the package. You can also set out hiking solo by followed the marked hiking trails. Crew members who don't feel like walking can stay on-board and make the most of the magnificent beaches.

The Cruise :le skipper a changé le programme initial avec notre accord, les étapes en bateau étaient parfois un peu longues (surtout au moteur!) l'accueil à procida a été pratiquement inexistant, le skipper a fait le minimum à bord : aucune aide pour la préparation des repas, très peu de dialogue.... nous avons eu des problèmes avec la pompe à eau et l'annexe se dégonflait nous n'avons pas pu aller à terre à capri ! l'accueil au retour a été totalement inexistant !! le skipper est parti très vite et nous n'avons vu personne de skippair

The Skipper :le skipper en a fait le moins possible et était à la limite de l'amabilité!

(2/5)

The Cruise :Tout d'abord, un manque d accueil au bateau pas de skipper présent quand on est arrivés. Par hasard, nous avons croise le soi disant responsable qui nous annonce que nous changeons de bateau et de skipper. Deuxièmement, le programme prévu a été revu largement : les iles pontines et pas la cote amalfitaine , mise à part une rapide incursion de 2h à Positano. Le skipper n ayant pas du tout envie de faire capri et la cote amalfitaine a mis en avant la cherté des frais de port, du fait quil n y aurait pas de places dans les ports, etc, etc. Pas de randonnées possibles mais vu la foule et la chaleur, ce n était peut être pas plus mal. Peu de voile et beaucoup de moteur (dont une journée entière de Ponza à iischia). Je comprends que l itinéraire puisse etre revu mais c est dommage de ne pas le savoir avant de partir.

The Skipper :Une opinion tres mitigée. Peu d enthousiasme de sa part et un problème global d empathie . Il a surtout géré la croisière et les escales de facon à préserver sa tranquillité !

We are pretty sure that...
