ELEGANT YACHT CLASSY CREW! The title says it all! Susan and I have been in the Bahamas cruising with others but never come across an experience that has been so much fun and exposed to a crew that was so considerate of our needs. Francois and Annette are wonderful and Bonaparte is a true classic boat that journeys you through history as well as the Bahamas paradise. All the toys are there to use, the meals are gourmet within elegant settings and laughter prevails. Their website is accurate! In short, we want to spend more time with them on a boat we love. We think that the time we had on Bonaparte is unique in the Bahamas and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. We will be back.
