Recent Liquid Zen Charter Comments

Catamaran Liquid Zen
Recent Charter Comments
 
Liquid Zen - Yacht Charters - Sailing Vacations

Liquid Zen received such great comments for their recent holiday charters that we thought they were worth sharing with you.


New Years 2022

"Thank you for giving us a week full of experiences and memories that we will remember for a lifetime! From the food that was out of this world, to teaching Shane and Travis to scuba dive, and even showing us the ropes of sailing, we've had the most unforgettable week island hopping around the Virgin Islands! 

"Both of you have shown unbelievable kindness, grace, patience, wisdom, joy, laughter, and love to not only our family, but to each other! Each of you are truly an inspiration to us and everyone you encounter! Thank you for being such a highlight on our trip and welcoming us to your home with open arms. We hope you have an amazing 2022!"


Christmas 2021

"Wow, if you want the best vacation for your family to make everlasting, very special memories, this is it! A one-week cruise with Michael and Casey, our captain and chef, was just what we all needed to reconnect and spend quality time together. 
 
"Our family of eight including my husband, our two daughters, son-in-law and three teenage grandchildren spent one week on Liquid Zen, a beautiful 52-foot catamaran with all the amenities. Without a doubt, we had our best family holiday ever! 
 
"Michael and Casey pampered us from the moment they met us at the dock and helped us unload our luggage from the van to helping us with our luggage into the van when we, very reluctantly, started our journey home. 
 
"They had wonderful suggestions of some extras, which I fortunately said yes to. Both were surprises for my family (it was a Christmas cruise) – the first day a massage therapist came aboard to give each of us a relaxing massage, which was the perfect way to jump right into “vacation mode.” And, the last day, I surprised everyone with a super band of three and as they played and sang from the swim platform on our boat, other boats and floats came to share in the fun and frivolity. 
 
"Casey is a superb chef, so consequently mealtime was a real highlight of the trip – it was magical how such yummy food (and snacks) appeared many times each day just when we started to get hungry! We ate and ate, and she prepared special food for those of us who are gluten-free and vegetarian. 
 
"Fortunately, there were many activities to prevent us from having to be rolled off the deck at the end of our cruise! We swam, snorkeled, went scuba diving, paddleboarding, hiking, ate lunch one day on a floating pod (whoops, this is in the wrong category!). There were all sorts of fun water toys that kept appearing – floats, floating chairs, kayaks, paddleboards where all sorts of silly games and competitions ensued. 
 
"The sea life was never ending – sting rays, turtles, starfish, tarpon, multicolored designs on a myriad of fish swimming alone and in schools. At night, we watched the same sea life from the platform at the back of the boat all lit up from above. 
 
"In the evenings we played our guitar, listened and danced to music, played cards and both night and day a lot of chess matches were happening – when we could get Michael to stop working, he won every game! He also designed a very interesting trivia game, which once again brought out our competitiveness! 
 
"We highly recommend this 5-star experience with Michael and Casey on Liquid Zen!! We can’t wait to go back!!!"

RECIPE: Christmas Cocktail: Parisian Poinsettia

 

Christmas Cocktail: Parisian Poinsettia

To get you in the festive spirit, here’s our Parisian Poinsettia cocktail recipe – the perfect fusion of champagne, triple sec and cranberry juice…
 

The Perfect Poinsettia 
 
Best served in a martini glass, or a stemmed red wine glass, the Parisian Poinsettia cocktail truly packs a punch when the rim is sugar-coated. Getting the perfect proportions can be tricky when making more than one Poinsettia cocktail. If that’s the case, use measuring equipment to ensure ideal measures when decanting. Don’t forget to leave enough ice if you prefer your Poinsettia cocktail on the rocks! Start by filling your glass by a third, before adding your ice cubes, then topping up. Prefer your Poinsettia cocktail on the rocks? Just be sure everything (including your glass) is perfectly chilled before serving…
 
Ingredients
  • 25ml triple sec
  • 50ml cranberry juice
  • 75ml champagne (or prosecco)
 
Method
  1. Chill the triple sec, cranberry juice, champagne and a martini glass in the fridge until cold.
  2. Pour the triple sec and cranberry juice into the chilled sugar-rimmed glass, then slowly top up with the champagne and perhaps garnish with a bay leaf. 
 
Enjoy !

Dreaming On Belize

Explore Belize
An Undiscovered Sailing Destination

 
Today we feature the catamaran Dreaming On. Geoff & Iza have kindly provided an update about chartering in Belize... Take it away, guys!
 
Iza & Geoff

 
Belize has taken very organized steps to control the spread of COVID. Case numbers are still low and land, sea and air border controls are regularly modified as required. The vaccination program is proceeding well. The Government has just passed a new rule that requires anyone requiring access to a Government Building, either to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test result taken with the previous 72 hours.
 
Southern Belize has the distinct advantage that it is so much less crowded than the popular and very busy areas of Belize City, Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker, so, in our opinion, much “COVID safer.”

Traveling from Belize City International Airport to Placencia has always been easy on either Maya Island Air or Tropic Air, our local commuter airlines.
 
However, with the recent opening of a new road connecting the airport directly to the Western Highway avoiding the outskirts of Belize City, the road travel time to Placencia is now 2.5 to 3 hours. This gets people out of the airport quickly and into a safer, more controllable social distancing environment. The drive also takes guests through some wonderful, forested mountain scenery, with an optional stop along the way.
 
There are some wonderful jungle lodges along the way to break the journey as an option and we can offer some great Surf and Turf packages.
 
The other advantage of taking the road trip is the door-to-door service. The driver meets guests at the International Airport Arrivals and delivers them directly to hotel or yacht in Placencia. No waiting around in the main terminal for commuter flight connection or rechecking bags on and off a commuter flight, then a taxi.
 
Southern Belize offers spectacular turquoise waters, amazing snorkeling, superb scuba-diving opportunities, reef fishing, deep water fishing, (no Ciguatera in Belize) and magnificent fly fishing.
 
Placencia is a wonderful small village with many choices of eatery and bars when ashore. So much less busy than Ambergris Caye in the north.
 
The number of international flights operating to Belize has expanded with the addition of Alaska Airlines and Frontier Airlines.
  • American Airlines: Miami, Charlotte, Dallas and Los Angeles
  • United Airlines: Houston, Newark, Denver, Chicago, Los Angeles
  • Delta Airlines: Atlanta
  • Southwest Airlines: Houston, Denver
  • Alaska Airlines: Los Angeles, Seattle
  • Frontier Airlines Orlando, Denver
  • WestJet Airlines: Toronto
 
And remember, Dreaming On Yacht Charters guarantees an island to ourselves every night, and a reef to ourselves whenever snorkeling. Leave the crowds behind.
 
 


Thanks, Geoff & Iza, for the first-hand information about Belize.That was very helpful and much appreciated.
  
About Dreaming On

Guests Comments

 
We can't thank Geoff and Iza enough for their incredible hospitality, these are going to be cherished memories to look back on for the rest of our lives. Island paradise galore, along with all the activities and food to die for. 

- November 2021

We cannot say thank you enough for making this such a special trip, for a late 50th birthday celebration, to a last “full family at home” event. You are both so inspiring to all of us. Rob and I hope to be able to see you on the water again someday.
 
- August 2021

Thank you for a fabulous week. Your hospitality was warm and welcoming. Iza’s cooking made us feel as if we were at a five-star restaurant every meal. We thoroughly enjoyed all your stories and are hoping to share more adventures in the future. It was beautiful weather, and the snorkeling was fantastic. Looking forward to travelling with you again.

Meet The Crew

Captain Corrai
 
 
Raised in Alabama, Corrai was cultivated in an environment of southern hospitality and a love for the outdoors. He studied philosophy with a double in psychology which has been an enriching factor in connecting to those around him while leading a safe and memorable adventure at sea.

Creativity and problem solving are his passions and can be witnessed in his designing renaissance flavored maps of local waters, developing his own board game, surprising island patrons with honkey-tonk piano tunes on nights out, and culminating in his ability to tailor a personalized and unforgettable charter.


Chef Martyna
 
 

Born in Poland, Martyna grew up studying the fine arts and pursuing adventure across the European continent. She then uprooted herself for Canada where she worked and managed her father's dive shop; leading successful trips as far as the Caribbean. In the Bahamas, with her dive experience she was able to fill every role that could be asked of her from dive instructor, engineer, cook, and first mate and she earned the well-deserved nickname across the fleet as "Wonder Woman."

In her free Martyna can be found free-diving to impressive depths, bringing back a spearfishing bounty that would earn a nod of respect from Neptune himself, and keeping her online photography shop well stocked with new works of art.
