“…The food was magnificent! The fact that we never saw the same meal twice was such a treat. And the fact that you created all those culinary masterpieces out of that wooden box on deck and on that wood burning stove below deck makes the feat all the more impressive. The lobster bake on the deserted island, just as your brochure said, was definitely a highlight of the trip.”
