Morning Star

Crew of the Morning Sun –  ! WOW !

We had an amazing week aboard your ship. All expectations were exceeded, expectations that were set high because we were having a once in a lifetime family trip with my 84 year old dad and all 4 of my brothers and sisters.

Dom was the master captain, keeping us on track exploring all the islands of our ancestors. Ilija made sure our kids were happy, playing endlessly  in the water, laughing and splashing in the blue waters of the Adriatic. Ivan made sure every whim was extended too. Serving our delicious meals, mixing our yummy cocktails and keepin an eye out on our every move.

And George… what can we say? The food was absolutely amazing! Every meal made with love and tender thought. Each plate served with the utmost care and attention to diet. We have no idea how meals were assembled and cooked in the tiny kitchen – but it is not the equipment  but the mastermind!

We are so grateful for the excellent service provided. We hope you come to visit us in San Francisco!

Thank you, the Violic Family!

“We absolutely loved the trip!  The crew, partly manned by two brothers in the lead, was incredibly accommodating. The food was excellent. Highly capable in every way and knowledgeable of the region. The boat is immaculate, well equipped, luxurious and we would highly recommend to our friends. We especially miss Ivan as he kept us entertained too. Croatia is a delight. I will send separate pictures. ”

The Ruddy family left its mark in Croatia! We came, we spend, we left.

There were some good laughs. Muchachos in our pocket helped getu s through our vacation. We enjoyed all the ports of call, a wonderfull time water skiing and driving on the island Brač. We saw it all.

Thank you to George to the great meals. Ivan for the excellent company. Dom for the expert driving and Ilija for driving the dinghy and the hand warm to make sure out trip was perfect. We love you guys, see you soon Morning Star!!!

Allan & Maree S., Gold Coast, Australia

The Morning Star was recommended to our group of six couples and we are so satisfied with our choice. The crew Dom, Ivan, Elijah and the amazing Jure gave us exceptional service for our trip whatever we requested. They were accommodating to the highest degree. It is not easy to meet so many peoples expectations but we can honestly say the crew of the Morning Star did. From the absolutely amazing food from Jure to Elijah’s non-stop action in keeping the boat clean, getting set up for water play and Ivan’s „octopus“ arms – he managed to be everywhere all at once keeping us so relaxed, fed and meeting the drink needs of every single person. Each day. Dom made sure he picked the perfect spot to let us swim, we had privacy and were able to relax and enjoy this cruise so much that we are already talking about the next trip.

Big thanks to all especially Dom for such a fantastic time we can’t recommend it enough!

Morning Star

BRUNO PIPERNO has been here!! It has been one of the best weeks in my life; excellent boat;excellent crew; the best food we have ever had on any boat; we will be back soon.
