"The crew of the Samba and Jan Post, our guide, made us all feel completely at home, and made the extra efforts to be flexible and accommodating in the way the trip was run so that all of us could relax, enjoy and savour the experience."
"Absolutely loved the ship. The crew must have loved it too as they were very protective of it and kept it in a pristine condition. First class service and the food was just out of this world! Shame I can't remember the name of the chef now but the meals he produced were to die for! Never in my whole life I loved the food so much. Every single dish was just perfect. The lovely chef even prepared separate dishes for me as I have dietary restrictions. Unfortunately I was taken ill at the end of the trip but the ship owner dealt with that situation perfectly. The ship took me to Santa Cruz island. The owner arranged hotel and taxi for me, met me at the doctor's and helped me to get my antibiotics. First class care! The hotel Villa Laguna even upgraded my room for the second night to make my stay more comfortable! I couldn't recommend Samba more. Absolutely loved the whole experience and terribly miss the extraordinary cuisine!"
