    September 2020 - Aeolian Islands, Sicily - Italian Guests

    Dear Melissa, Francesco & Marlowe
    We are a numerous group, but with you, all of our needs were satisfied. The tour was perfect and every island and every night at anchor couldn't have offered better sensations. Guaranteed fun! And top food! Thank you for having given us such a splendid vacation. Ps. More compliments, we forgot to say that the boat is so well looked after and maintained! GR

    August 2020 – Aeolian Islands, Sicily – Swedish Guests (second trip on OMBRE BLU ³)

    Dear Melissa & Francesco, Thank you for yet another absolutely unforgettable week in the mesmerizingly beautiful archipelago of the Eolian Islands. However, I must fault you. For one thing my waste line. Francesco’s cooking (and Mel’s Muffins! Darn those Muffins!) which we thought could not possibly get better. Was just simply divine. We would rather eat your cooking than in a 5-Star Restaurant ashore. But these trips are truly made special by you two. We are grateful to have been introduced to you and this lovely way of exploring beautiful places.  You are very special, incredible even. The service, hospitality and atmosphere are honestly fantastic. Can’t wait for new adventures with you next year. xoxo D++++ Ps. Covid felt like a distant place with you all.  On this amazing boat. We felt so safe and you were all so conscientious. Meanwhile, the pandemic rages in other places OMBRE BLU ³ was truly the sanctuary we all savely needed. D.C  

    July 2020 - Amalfi Coast - UK Guests

    "Dear Melissa, Francesco and Marlowe,
    We had an unforgettable journey on your beautiful boat.  You have thought about every detail, from the elegant fabrics and timeless decor to lounging and seating for every occasion a sea and ashore.  The food is delicious, perhaps too yummy, as we are all bursting out of our clothes.  We loved exploring the coastline, swimming in the magical inviting waters, catching jellyfish, sailing, tasting new wines and local delicacies. You have given us a truly unique family holiday.  Whether relaxing or active, we have loved our time aboard OMBRE BLU ³.  From our hearts we thank you.  Until our next excursion!"

    July 2020 - Naples to Pontine Islands - Italian Guests

    With affection, see you soon!

    Two words... perfect Trifecta!!! Three different locations, three different sets of friends and family on each charter but the one consistent item is the amazing, friendly, knowledgeable experience you provide every time! Your in-depth knowledge of each location enables us to experience all of the beauty of Italy (with no planning on our part :)) The Ombre Blu culinary experience is on par (or better than) many Michelin Star restaurants! We look forward to seeing that Cookbook someday! Thank you for helping us create more memories that will last a lifetime! Until the next time... With love Rosanne & Chris
