Charter 6 - 20 Dec 2016
Dear all staff of DOUCE FRANCE
Merry Christmas

We are Just finishing the celebration of our Christmas after fantastic days on DF.
Let me start to say, thank you so much to make our holiday so incredible fantastic.

After more than 52 charter all over the world the owner of DOUCE FRANCE is a very lucky person to have a team like you and on top of Captain Pascal.
Not only luck of course - he is a successful businessmen so has employed the very best of the best.

Captain Pascal ! The knowledge and the atmosphere you make on board is amazing. You know the boat and the sea as no one else. Im also a Captain and enjoy every moment with you in charge.
The greatest and gentle and very safe way you running the old lady DF no one can do better and with the very best expertise, congratulation.

The Chef and the food Mr Shailen !
Everyone at sea knows how difficult it is to serv fresh and organic at sea. To store vegetable, fruits berries and serve fresh warm bread and croissant every morning . Not easy.
But most important, he served us absolute everything we ask fore and in a gourmet/Michelin style Im never see at sea before. Impressive and amazing.

The deckhand and dive instruction. Charlotte
OMG !!!
Perfectionist, experience, safe and great. Serving with a big smile. She is the best for the boat and the guest at the same time and are doing the whole cruise to the best of the best.

The engineer Erwann serving the boat elegant and silent . Nothing more to say, everyone how have a yacht know one thing :) all the thing breaks down and it is always a need to fix things on board. On Douce France all the things work all the time ! Finish

Eric Pontoire

As repeat charter guests we are a big fan of DOUCE FRANCE. We experienced her at her best and were impressed by the good crew and the diving in this beautiful location. We saw a lot of sharks and even a hammerhead shark of 4m30 in Fakarava. Well done crew and dive master for giving us this wonderful experience! we will be back next year in Tonga!
