Meet Samantha, a vibrant and multi-talented Stewardess, who brings a wealth of experiences and a zest for creativity on board SWEET ESCAPE. Hailing from the coastal beauty of Australia, Samantha's childhood was a tapestry of sun, sea, and adventure.

Before setting sail in the world of yachting, Samantha spent seven years as a dedicated primary school teacher in London. Her love for the ocean and working with people of all ages and cultures mixed with her desire to work at sea, naturally drew her to yachting. Samantha's greatest asset is her creativity, nurtured through her passion for dance, painting, and drawing. She then refined these skills as a waitress and a teacher, setting table decorations for functions, creating exciting and engaging lessons for children, and choreographing dance pieces. On board, Samantha particularly loves serving guests, organizing parties, and mixing beautiful, handcrafted cocktails. She wants charter guests to leave with the feeling that their time on board surpassed their expectations.

For Samantha, the small details are what make a trip memorable. From creative table settings, scented hand towels, welcome drinks, and themed nights to personalized touches like scented knowing the guests' names and what they will ask for, even before they ask for it. Developing a good rapport with the guests is highly important. Samantha believes having a happy and positive presence will make the guests feel the same.

Dance and yoga are not just pastimes for Samantha; they're her passions. In her spare time, you can find her engaging in both of these activities, helping cultivate discipline, confidence, and creativity.

With her bubbly personality, she creates a “home away from home” environment onboard M/Y Sweet Escape.

D & C Family

To the entire crew of Yacht Sweet Escape, Thank you so very very much for your unbelievable help, thoughtfulness and kindness over the past week. Our trip was phenomenal because you went out of your way to make every experience special. You did this with patience, dignity, elegance and respect. And most of all you made us feel at home and very welcome. We were not lying when we said to “look us up” if you are ever in our towns. We wish you all the best always, —D & C March, 2018

S, R & Family

Dear Captain Paul & Crew, This last week has truly been a blessing and a lifelong memory for our family. While Sweet Escape is phenomenal and our natural surroundings incredibly picturesque, it has been your care and service to our family that has made this vacation! We cannot remember another holiday opportunity when we have all felt so cared for. From the moment we woke up in the mornings until our heads hit the pillows each night—one of you was always looking out for us. Thank you so much for truly caring not only for our comfort but also for our safety. We will never forget all of the wonderful meals, our squeaky clean cabins, the hours & hours & hours on the “toys”, our trips into quaint towns, champagne conversations, safe and professional travel and most of all, your company and friendship. Thank you again for caring for us. We will always cherish this week! Sincerely, —S, R & Family June, 2018

The M. Family

Dear Captain Paul What an incredible week we had on Sweet Escape, in large part because of you and your wonderful crew. Wow! I don’t know where to begin to thank you for an experience our family will talk about for years to come. As you know from our conversations our family is fortunate to have traveled a lot. We picked Croatia because none of us had been there. That was a good start because it is wonderful. Then we really hit the jackpot when our charter broker recommended Sweet Escape. What an experience! Our family wanted to stay on board, read, talk and do water activities—and did they ever do the water toy program! Your crew went beyond the call of duty to be patient with us learning how to ride all the toys. We loved it. The food was outstanding. All the meals were a delight and the service of the wait staff was over the top. My wife and daughter (who is an interior designer) took a picture of every table setting because they could have all been in a magazine. We loved the food so much and found the portions to be so perfect that we never felt as though we’d eaten too much nor did we all gain a lot of weight. Congratulations for that. Very well done. Now, about you, Capt. Paul. You were terrific. Thank you for running a safe, tight, well supervised boat. It is noticed and appreciated. Please receive my family’s most sincere thanks and gratitude for taking such good care of our family. Bottom line. This was an unparalleled experience that we will not soon forget. Thank you, thank you, thank you, —The M. Family July, 2018

The L. Family

What an amazing trip! We worked and planned this adventure through Croatia for a year, and it surely paid off! The fabulous crew of Motoryacht Sweet Escape took absolute care of all our needs before we even knew what we needed ourselves. They could not have been more attentive! We will all miss them! The yacht was a gem, we never lacked for an activity! The food was fantastic each day. Our family thanks you all, each and every one, for the most wonderful trip of a lifetime. We hope to see you all again in the near future. XO. — The L. Family July, 2018

The M. Family

March 19-26, 2024

No one can control the weather and the crew did an amazing job to move us around to sheltered water and find the best weather they could for us on some of those days. We actually had an excellent time, we made the best of the days and toys and the yacht. We were very appreciative of the crew and staff and how hard they worked to take care of all of us. We have nothing but great things to say about the whole team and we are all very happy to have a trip of a lifetime for our group.
