  • 12 June, 2024 Dear Melissa & Francesco Somewhere in this home I wrote about the fabulous trip we took on Ombre Blu eight years ago. As wonderful as it was, it doesn’t hold a candle to the week we just spent on Ombre Blu3! Every moment was perfect, from freshly brewed coffee in the morning to the cocktails at sunset. You two made our family Italian vacation perfect in every way! With much gratitude, Myron & Nicki

  • 7 – 15 October, 2023 – Athens, Greece Thank you so very much, you wonderful people, for a beautiful week (+ one day) floating around the Saronic Islands. This trip was always going to be bittersweet without ourĀ  beloved Christine but we’ve reminisced about gorgeous, previous voyages with her, while we’ve navigated this one. It felt like she has been along with us the whole time. There were so many magical highlights – being called by Donkeys in Hydra, a pilgrimage to Leonard Cohen’s house, trekking across Aegina, and of course, Francesco’s fabulous food. The parmigiana was unreal! You’ve all treated us like family – as always. As my friend put it recently “here’s to treasuring old memories & making beautiful new ones”. Thank you for helping us do that. Lots of love – until next time Happy Sailing. Vic, Charlie & Roger
