We had the BEST time ever with Jean Yves aboard the Sasha. Chef Sylvia could not be there so Sonia joined us and the girls adored her. Our trip could not have been better.
The crew was amazing in every way. Sasha’s accommodations were fabulous, super clean and airy.
The menu was fabulous with all different kinds of foods and the kids also loved it.
Loved all the great places the crew took us, some popular places and some secret places too. Nice mix of diving, beach spots and others.
Thanks soooo much for everything.
