To Jay and the rest of the Mary Anne family... thank you for all for making our experience on the Mary Anne the best time spent sailing. We appreciate the crew adding those special touches... I would recommend you all to my family and friends.Angel Phitayakorn
The itinerary and crew of the Mary Anne made the experience truly magical.Patricia Stefanelli
The Mary Anne was the perfect way to tour the Galapagos Islands. We were always the envy of other travelers. The captain and crew were great!Mark Nozaki
Our guide in the Galapagos on the Mary Anne was Carolina Larrea Angermeyer and she was terrific... She demonstrated genuine love for the Galapagos. She was also very helpful in meeting the needs of the passengers. We loved our cruise in the Galapagos and feel that a large part of the experience was due to Carolina.Terry Keir
I was particularly pleased with the cruise ship Mary Anne. The boat was beautiful, the captain and crew provided first class service and they worked hard at making the trip fun.Michael Davison
