How important is the food on board?
Food quality on board is of paramount importance to create the complete vacation experience. Even if the accommodation is spotless and the crew excellent, a mediocre chef can spoil the guests’ enjoyment. Adriana Bošnjak, the charter broker with Ocean Sailing House agrees. She said, “Once I match the yacht and location to my clients’ needs, the next thing I do is to ensure that the chef can work his or her magic.”
What to look for?
- Using fresh, seasonal ingredients and also ensuring menus are relevant to Mediterranean area in which the yacht is cruising.
- Furthermore, the key to cooking well on charters is listening to what the guests want rather than trying to show them everything you can do.
- And one more crucial thing for the guests to enjoy the most of their Croatian gourmet experience aboard is to take time and fill the Preference sheet.
If guests experience inclement weather and holiday activities are interrupted, then the food focus becomes even more important.
Charter guests are used to the excellent food and high standards as they spend much of their time on board eating. Leisurely breakfasts glide into lunch, which eases into late afternoon snacks followed by canapés just before sitting down to dinner! Sitting down to a meal presents a quality time – often not found in a normal busy life – to enjoy these meals in the company of family and friends, people who matter to You the most.
