Good afternoon Richard
Firstly let me apologise for the delay in sending you this email.
However - what an experience it was. It was a beautiful way to see the Whitsunday Islands - aboard the Descarada 2. The ship provides wonderful accommodation. The crew could not have done more to ensure our every wish was met. The kitchen produced delightful meals cooked to perfection. If the test of success is the question "Would we do it again?", I can unquestionably say a resounding "YES".
A big thank you to you all.
Regards Pascale Turvey
We have just spent a week onboard your Fabulous Motor Yacht , DescaradA cruising the Whitsunday’s
We are a Group of 4 Couples from Melbounre who have all travelled extensively over the years to many parts of both Australia and the World.
The Crew of DescaradA were magnificent.
Their attention to detail , willingness to please and ability to provide us with 5 Star Service , while making sure that our safety wasn’t compromised was a highlight of the voyage
Given the weather was not ideal, and this did restrict the daily activities somewhat, we still were able to do most of the things that we wanted to experience during our time on board.
Ken , Adrian and Pablo made sure that we enjoyed all the activities that DescardA offers by watching the weather and putting us into places each day that allowed us to Snorkel , Jet Ski , Kayak , Swim and take in the beautiful Whitsunday’s
Ken always made sure that we were moored in places each night that offered the flattest water available.
The other highlight of the Trip was the Food.
Lee, our Chef, amazed us each night with his ability to produce meals that would put most 5 Star Restaurants to shame. We are still amazed at how he did this out of such a small kitchen.
Small details like the setting of the table for each meal with shells and driftwood decoration and ensuring that we wanted for nothing will be remembered by the whole group.
As for the Motor Yacht itself, again the attention to detail and the obvious high standard of maintenance was very evident and gave us all comfort that we had chosen a very professional outfit for our 6-day adventure.
Your crew should be commended for demonstrating what real service is all about, and we would have no hesitation in recommending the DescaradA as the best value for money Private Charter Cruise Holiday on the Whitsunday’s
We are all looking forward to a return visit next year.

Hope you are well down in Australia!
I want to thank you so much for our cruise with DescaradA. We really really enjoyed it, it was great!
The crew was fantastic and the food was amazing! On our two weeks in Australia we probably had the best food on the yacht!
All the activities was fantastic, especially the snorkeling with Elvis J and seeing Whitehaven Beach, although it was raining, but beautiful anyway.
I will for certain try to book as many Swedes in as possible, now that I know has good the cruise really is!
I had a group on the yacht just before us and I met them at Coral Sea Resort and they also loved the cruise. They went on and on about the food, Lee is an amazing chef!
Thanks again and a merry Christmas to you!
Med vänliga hälsningar / Kind regards,
