Dear Libra Staff and Captain,
Thank you by all our hearts for a most divine week on board Libra! It has been absolutely wonderful and we have enjoyed every moment. We felt so incredibly welcome and well taken care off. Thank you for your warm and personal attention to every detail. The Cycladic islands are truly amazing, and we enjoyed each stop more than the other, every deserted beach, every charming fish restaurant with the feet in the ocean, every refreshing swim around the boat. And we were spoiled by delicious and healthy meals. We now have fallen in love with the Cycladic islands so we will be sure to be back.
