I am sorry this review is so long in coming! The fact that I am doing a review this long after our visit should tell you how impressed that I was with this company. They really aim to please. I was looking thru some pictures and realized that I never left a review. My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in February 2017 on the Morningstar dinner and snorkel cruise. After our snorkel, we climbed aboard to find a beautiful fruit plate waiting for us. The food was fabulous and so was the crew. We do not drink alcoholic beverages so they went above and beyond to make sure that we were accommodated with our choice of beverages.If we ever go back to Aruba, we would love to do it again. The owner was onboard to make sure that all went as she wanted it. That is customer service!

I wish there was a lot more room in a review to completely cover all the Awesome things we could say about this excursion. We stayed for a week on the island and this sailing adventure was truly the best part of any day and certainly the best run trip ever. Captain Marciano is the best host of any trip we have ever been on and that is saying something. He and his 2 members ( I really sorry I cant remember their names but she was an amazing chef) crew took care of everything so we never had to do a thing or worry about anything the whole trip. Started out with fruit platter freshly cut pineapple watermelon and grapes and a few other fruits ,drinks the whole time soda beer or mixed drinks. then as you sail to your snorkeling spot Captain Marciano will fill you in on the whole history of Aruba if you ask and they serve appetizers the whole way, crostini bread and chicken or tuna salad on top, then fresh mozzarella grape tomatoes and Basil with basalmic glaze. Then snorkeling it was only the 2 of us on board for 5 hours the water was turbulent since we just had a storm pass the night before and it was still very windy so she decided not to snorkel. Captain Marciano stepped right in and said he would go with me this would have been a nice gesture anyway but he was nursing an injury to his finger and could not get it wet, so he wrapped it up and waterproofed his hand and got out the lifesaver ring and kept his hand above water on it while he snorkeled with me just amazing. We got out of the water and found my wife bandaged up she took a little spill and cut her chin while we were gone the crew was there helping her and taking care of her the whole time cant say enough thanks for their caring attitude. They cooked us filet mignon (perfectly) medium rare with potatoes and veggies and had a huge glass of shrimp cocktail and wine. Just amazing and we were served right at sunset on a table on the back of the boat. Overall just stunning. If you are in Aruba and want one of the best cruises and I have to say the BEST meal we had the whole time this sailing is a MUST DO.. Honestly I feel like we have a friend for life in Marciano He was so nice he actually set it up so he and i could go snorkeling in his spot from shore on a Sunday afternoon and we were in the beautiful waters drift snorkeling for almost 2 hours..Just cant say enough Thank Marciano

Myself and two teenage daughters took a 4 hour sailing/snorkel charter. Everything was absolutely perfect. One of my daughters has difficulty snorkeling and the private attention and patience allowed her to really snorkel for the first time. The water was crystal clear (we have had several people refuse to believe the pictures were taken in the ocean vs a swimming pool), the boat was beautiful, and the food tasted as good as it looked. I can not stress it enough-this trip is a must do!! Captain Marciano is the BEST.

We booked Morning Star for a tour last week and we couldn’t be more impressed with the experience. We connected with our captain, Marciano, over email prior to the trip, and he was extremely accommodating before we even set foot on the boat. He and his crew even went out of his way to pick up our favourite rosé wine for the trip! He consistently went above and beyond to make our day a memorable one. The entire crew were personable, courteous and didn’t miss a beat. Their 55” boat, “All for You”, was well presented and spacious for the four of us (and could easily handle a larger group), with different “hang out areas”. Our night ended with a lovely home cooked meal, with multiple choices available to select during the reservation process, presented with pride.
