Amy was one of the best Captains we have sailed with. Adam's food was AWESOME....a true food Ninja. And Warren was exceptional addition to the team. We are so thankful to have spent this week amazing with them! THANK YOU!
Amy, Adam, and Warren were incredibly accommodating and attentive. We would recommend this crew to anyone. Thank you for a most enjoyable vacation.
I’ve spent the last 20+ years professionally, understanding and helping companies perfect a great Customer Experience. I thought I was the expert in CX, but it turns out your crew aboard our sailing adventure could easily write their own book on the topic. Amy is a capable, lovable, likable, Captain and exudes confidence and command during critical phases of sailing for the safety and comfort for all onboard. She’s a wonderful entertainer and leader. I suspect she’s one of the very best in the fleet. Adam was warm, wonderful, and extremely engaging. HIs culinary skills are amazingly superb. Some of the best food we’ve eaten on land or sea. The chemistry between Adam and Amy was playful and fun, but professional. Warren is a bit quieter, but there to hear and serve every need. He is the perfect complement to the trio onboard. Warren will have a bright future in sailing - just a great all-around guy! Your company clearly has a well-honed and perfected product. We’re so very happy to have experienced it with our wonderful hosts.
Amy, Adam, and Warren were amazing! Amy is a very knowledgeable captain who made us always feel very safe on the water. Adam is an outstanding cook! I was so excited when he was willing to give me a Sushi lesson, made my trip! Warren was a great help and completed this excellent crew! We would travel with them any day! Thank you all again for an unforgettable trip!
Captain Amy, Chef Warren and Deckhand Warren made this trip magical for us. They gave the extra mile on every aspect of the trip from activities, food to drinks. Two weeks after our vacation we are still talking about them as they were definitely the best part of the trip!!!
It was one of the most fantastic vacations I've ever had! It was so unique and relaxing with no TV, internet or cell service I felt like I was in another universe! I also have never experienced such wonderful customer service - our crew were amazing and made us feel like kings and queens! Adam’s meals were off the charts - delicious and beautiful at the same time. Warren kept us busy all week snorkeling among the reefs in the clear, turquoise water. Sitting in the dolphin chair on the open sea were highlights, but our daily "Captain's Cocktails" with Amy and dinner were my favorite part of the day! This was definitely a bucket-list trip that I didn't even know it was on my bucket list!
Your luxury sailing vacation will be an all-inclusive experience, that all starts with a Welcome cocktail as soon as you step on board! We believe that our guest value a wide variety of delicious meals while on their vacation and our culinary team takes pride in treating you to a varied menu prepared using the best produce available that is both delicious and beautifully presented.
