What a great experience staying on the Santa Maria. It was everything we hoped for. As a guest, you must remember it is a boat so it will be different than any traditional accommodations but that was the fun of it! Paulo, Adelaide’s husband, was such a great host for us. Once we were settled on the boat, he took us for authentic Bifana sandwiches in the marina…delicious! The following day, Paulo took us on a tour of Sinatra and his childhood home of Cascais which far exceeded anything we could’ve booked anywhere else. He was knowledgeable and let us have say in what we did, which was great. He even brought to a surprise ending spot for the views of Lisbon and a quick stop at the supermarket! If you are looking for something other than traditional apartment/hotel stays in Lisbon, this is your place. Just try to bring a bag that isn’t as large as mine was since, well, you are staying on a boat!
