Dear Sonia, Thank you so much once again for your beautiful singing and kindness.  We adore you and Greg!  You are so talented, kind, and engaging.  We cruise on the Divina because of you and cherish the nights we have in La Luna with you.  We are lucky and grateful to have found you and Greg and we will always find out where you are before booking an MSC cruise. You are a fantastic couple and you light up the nights with your amazing singing, which obviously comes from the heart.  Thank you again for another week of wonderful memories. Enjoy your much deserved time off.  We love you!  XOXO

I really enjoyed my evenings spent at La Luna on the MSC Divina...Cruise Jan 19-28!!!!  Just …..I would have LOVED to see the Fab Four Tribute that was in the Pantheon Theatre...rather than the rerun of shows on the last night of the cruise....Judi Vargo, Warren Michigan

I am sorry I made it so difficult to find yourself on the video.  I just added Ameritalian as tags in the videos where you are featured so hopefully it will be easier for everyone to find you singing.  It was such a wonderful cruise and all the musical variety was so wonderful, but especially I enjoyed listening to you and your husband sing.  I was telling my brother that you have a soothing, angelic voice and it was wonderful to spend time listening and relaxing.  I wish you safe travels as you cruise the oceans and hope to see you again on the Divina next year.

Sonia my name is adys martin. I shared the most wonderful time last week listening to you, Greg and Enrico the entire week, sometimes all the way in the back sometimes up front. I truly would  have loved to go with you to Europe. You'll  see who I am when you see my photo on face book. Congratulations and hope you have a wonderful audience like last week, April 11 - 18, 2015.





We started with a comment book during the first season and we still collect comments from our guests. This is a wonderful way to show the appreciation of our audience. Here some of the first comments and then other references collected during our career.

Anna Werner - Cruise Director

I met Sonia Milan and Greg Patton, AMERITALIAN VARIETY DUO, for the first time six years ago, during the Caribbean Season on MSC Poesia 2010/2011 and I met them again in season, 2012/2013 always in the Caribbean on the same MSC ship and then MSC DIVINA in season 2013/2014 and 2014/2015.

My role was and still is the Cruise Director for more then 10 years  on MSC ships, and especially in the Caribbean.

During the first season, they performed as a duo in Bar dei Poeti, creating an excellent revenue in the Bar: they are able to make people really passionate about their repertoire, having people coming back every night  to enjoy the time.

They were always in time and their performances were very much appreciated by the passengers, who left hundreds of excellent comments.

Then next season they performed as single artist, sharing the same stage and their renditions contributed to create the highest score in the whole MSC Fleet in the entertainment department.

Then they are back to perform as a duo in LA LUNA Bar, which turn to be the crowded bar of the ship all the time.

They are very cordial, they work with passion involving the audience.

Along with their repertoire they suggested and performed  different tribute with their huge repertoire, from the Beatles to country music, Adele, Eagle, always filling to capacity the major lounges and creating extra revenue.

Sonia and Greg are always available to play with our musicians, without counting the extra time and I can say I never saw in my ship life, concerts done in such a professional matter, able to satisfy all ages group and genres.

I dearly recommend them for entertainment.

Sonia is an extraordinary singer, songwriter and actress. She is creative, humorous and at the same time disciplined, concentrated. It is always a pleasure working with her.

Guido Belli - Cultural Manager

Sonia extraordinary technical ability and the artistic sensibility in playing any instrument at levels of excellence surprised anyone who has anything to do with her professionally, and fascinates the audience of her listeners, whether they are the lucky viewers of her live performance paired with Greg Patton, or the listeners of their multifaceted music production on CD and MP3 files. 

During the long and fruitful collaboration that Sonia had with Studio Festi, I and all the artistic staff of the company were to appreciate her sensitivity in the interpretation, accompanied by an exceptional ability to adapt to perform in complex situations and with loads working sometimes very intense.

Sonia has the ability to dominate the running of her singing with ease. Having a warm and extensive voice, cultivated by years of study and perfected with practice together with great singers, rich in harmonics that allow amazing interpretive variations, every performance is captivating for the audience, whose attention never falls: for this, her performances are a sight that never expires ordinary.


La straordinaria capacità tecnica ed la sensibilità artistica di Sonia nel suonare qualsiasi strumento a livelli di eccellenza stupisce chiunque abbia a che fare con lei professionalmente, e affascina il pubblico dei suoi ascoltatori, siano essi i fortunati spettatori di una sua esibizione dal vivo in coppia con Greg Patton, siano gli ascoltatori della loro poliedrica produzione musicale disponibile su CD e file MP3. 
Nel corso della lunga e proficua collaborazione che Sonia ha avuto con Studio Festi, io e tutto lo staff artistico della compagnia abbiamo avuto modo di apprezzare la sua sensibilità nell’interpretazione, accompagnata da una eccezionale capacità di adattarsi ad esibirsi in situazioni complesse e con carichi di lavoro a volte molto intensi. 
Nel canto, Sonia ha dimostrato di saper dominare l’esecuzione con sicurezza. Disponendo di una voce calda ed estesa, coltivata con anni di studio e perfezionata con la pratica insieme a grandi cantanti, ricca di armonici che le consentono variazioni interpretative sorprendenti, ogni sua esibizione risulta accattivante per il pubblico, la cui attenzione non cala mai: per questo, le sue performance sono uno spettacolo che non scade mai nell’ordinario.
