Charter Yacht Antillean: Guest Comments, Honeymoon

We received after-charter comments from a honeymoon couple that we recently had aboard Antillean, one of our favorite charter yachts in the Virgin Islands.

Charter Party = Jennie and Jason
Charter Dates = April 21-27, 2013
Charter Yacht = Antillean

  • How did you enjoy your charter?
Jason and I had a fantastic honeymoon.  It was everything we had dreamed it would be and more.  What other way can you travel 150 miles through the BVIs and see so many things in one trip?
  • How would you describe your crew? Were they courteous, helpful, friendly, attentive, knowledgeable?
Heidi and John were very personable and hospitable.  They were attentive to our every need.  They were extremely knowledgeable about the area.  We visited many private beaches.  We arrived at the popular destinations (i.e. The Baths and Sandy Spit) before the crowds came in.  They knew the great local bars and restaurants.
  • Was the yacht comfortable, clean and well maintained?
The yacht was beautiful, comfortable and very clean.
  • How would you describe the quality and presentation of the meals served on board?
Heidi is an amazing chef... She catered to my gluten allergy and always had something different planned.  If you like Indian food ask her to make John's favorite dish... We loved it!
  • Did the crew pay close attention to your Preference Sheets?
Very close attention
  • How did you find the services offered by Paradise Connections?
Very helpful and professional
  • Would you be interested in taking another yacht vacation in the future?
  • Did you stay in a hotel before or after your charter?
Yes, on both sides and recommend it
  • If so, which one and what are your comments?
Stayed at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef... beautiful hotel, but could be better on the service side.
