Tommy and Emma were awesome, they made the trip so much better. Tommy was great with our children (6,12,14), always had a smile on his face, a ton of energy and was up for anything. Emma was superb in the kitchen, all of her food was outstanding, the two made a great team and quite honestly we will remember them as much as we will remember anything else about the trip. If we ever sailed again we would go out of our way to sail with them...the Luffs!

Beautifully presented and the crew very welcoming

<em>What was your first impression of the yacht? </em> We had a great first impression. The yacht was beautifully presented and the crew very welcoming.

<em>Was advertised equipment onboard and in good condition?</em> Yes, it was really good and we used lots of the toys. Brilliant for children and grown ups alike.

<em>Did the skipper/hostess make you feel welcome and comfortable onboard? </em> Emma & Tommy we just exceptional. We warmed to them instantly. They went to such extraordinary lengths to make our charter special and unique. From hand made fish spotting logs ready and waiting for the childrens arrival, to finding the best snorkelling spots, amazing food for both us and our children. Nothing was too much for them. They are a great team and made our holiday one we will never forget, special memories.

<em>Did you feel free to choose activities?</em> Totally, Emma and Tommy were happy to take us where we wanted and get any toys out at anytime for us to use. They were most accommodating.

<em>Please provide specific comments regarding your skipper and hostess.</em> As above, both Tommy and Emma were the perfect Hosts. Tommy is an excellent skipper, in calm control of the boat, we felt very confident in his care. He absolutely knows the waters and all the best spots to anchor He was always polite and seemingly unflappable. He went to extra effort to get the children interested in the workings of the boat. He was also always very attentive to our needs, offering drinks and activities all the time. Emma, similarly is a super hostess. She equally handled all boat activities in a calm and efficient manner. With the children she was amazing, creating all sorts of activities for them and visiting lots of lovely spots that she knew they would really like.
All the food she prepared was an excellent standard and we were especially grateful that she was happy to cook a separate meal for the children early each evening.
I honestly could not think of a single negative point with this crew, having done several charters in the past, I realise that this is a rare thing.

<em>Were the meals and beverages as you expected?</em> Above our expectations, just great.

<em>If you made any special requests were they </em> Yes. An example was Valentines, we had specified and a special evening. Emma and Tommy made it a whole special day. They gave us a lie in while they took care of the children. Emma got them helping her in making a special breakfast for us and cards, it was so sweet. The children were so excited to be included in spoiling us. The boat was decorated, we enjoyed Mimosas on our morning sail, a lovely lunch and romantic evening meal, after dinner they had set out blankets and cushions on deck for us to star gaze with a bottle of champagne.
They really went above and beyond.

<em>Was this your first visit to the BVI?</em> No it was our 4th visit.

<em>Would you recommend this yacht for a charter vacation?</em> 100% Yes

A very memorable vacation
Having taken a few charters before, we could truly appreciate the experience, and excellent service that captain Tom and Emma provided us.

They are a great team and where attentive to our every question and need. Emma is a wondeful chef and diver. Tom is a true seamen. We would highly recommend them to provide you a very memorable vacation.

Ranks at the top of our favorite vacations
Over the summer, my husband and I took a catamaran trip in the BVI's. We had a fabulous week, in large part due to the good fortune of having Tommy and Emma as our captain and first mate/chef. We enjoyed smooth sailing, delicious meals, and had our every need attended to. They went out of their way to tailor the trip to their guests preferences, including finding the best snorkeling spots and planning two special birthday celebrations!

In addition to being very professional, they were also extremely personable and a delight to be around. Tommy's good nature and dry humor kept us smiling, as well as his talent on the ukulele! Emma is not only a terrific cook, she's also an expert diver who gave us great snorkeling tips, and even dove to take pictures we could not get.

Our vacation was not only beautiful sailing, great snorkeling and fabulous food, it was full of fun and laughter and ranks at the top of our favorite vacations.
Thanks Tommy and Emma for a fantastic week!

Thrilled with the trip
I am very tardy in communicating back to you after our brilliant trip in the BVIs in mid February.
We could not have had a better time, and this was largely due to your role(s) as: Captain, Chief Safety Officer, Lead Bartender, Event Coordinator, Watersports Director, and Court Jester.
You were terrific each day, planning out the route, activities, etc. The girls particularly enjoyed the evening dance party on the flybridge never to be forgotten:-) We still laugh and joke about some of our escapades on the trip, with you as a frequently mentioned source of entertainment.
You have clearly found your calling in life - when we return for another crewed charter in the BVIs, we will definitely be looking you up.

PS Please pass this note on to the folks at The Moorings and to the owner of M/V Roxanne they should know how thrilled we were with the trip overall and with you in particular
Emma is an absolute gem
I had the pleasure of spending a week on a mono-hull sailboat in the British Virgin Islands during February of 2016. That, in and of itself, would be enough good fortune for one person! However, I was doubly blessed to have Emma Clark aboard as Cook, and First Mate (I may have invented that title, but it sounded rather official, and nautical! She did help with all aspects of docking, mooring, and general sailboaty type activities, such that my group was able to simply relax on the charter As well as making excellent meals!)

Emma exudes a wonderful warmth, and personality. She is a pleasure to be around. A natural conversationalist, with much to add to any discussion However, (and this is very important in close quarters), she also has the ability to somehow make her self scarce when required. Our group felt very looked after, but didnt feel like there was a stranger in our midst, or that we were being tripped over constantly.

I would not hesitate to recommend Emma. She would be a great addition to any crew. She is confident, competent, personable, and kind.

In closing, Emma is an absolute gem. I hope to sail with her again.

Fantastic Captain
We had terrific family vacation in January 2016 with Captain Tommy Hemsley aboard Yacht Roxanne of Moorings in the British Virgin Islands.
Captain Tommy Hemsley is a great boat professional, honest, discrete and humble and he quickly earned the respect of all the members of our Family. He was a dependable and conscientious operator of our yacht.
He is extremely hardworking and determined to get the job done being day or night. He is very patient. He is a first-rate boat handler, and always operates in a safe and professional manner.
But also Captain Tommy Hemsley pays close attention to detail and to his guests including and he has an incredible amount of talent and skill including as a hors pair barman in the preparation of fantastic cocktails!
No doubt that Captain Tommy Hemsley is or would be a great asset to any vessel. He is demonstrating always good initiative. He is always pleasant with guests and crew.
It has been a personal and family pleasure to navigate under his responsibility as a Captain. HOUSSE HERVE
Most incredible trip!
My husband and I enjoyed the most incredible trip with friends to the BVI last January. While the scenery, itinerary, and sparkling clean, beautiful yacht were fantastic, what made the trip truly special was the attention to detail, attentiveness and creativity of our crew. Emmas sweet, hard working and friendly demeanor was just as appreciated as her (seriously!) delicious meals. While the kitchen was quite small, youd never guess it with the inventiveness and quality of each dish she prepared. Every meal was well thought out and far beyond what was expected. We also really appreciated the professionalism that Emma and our captain provided. They completely respected our space and privacy but were such lovely people that we really enjoyed spending time with- which led to some really fun dinners and outings with our group. Oh, and did I mention that shes an amazing diver and snorkeler and will share lots of helpful tips with you??? I highly recommend hiring Emma for your next trip. She truly is such a gem.

What was going to be our trip of a lifetime is now our..."when can we sail again" vacation. Ellen was spot on when she recommended that we book Gypsy Princess and this crew. The fact that we didn't have to make a decision for 7 straight days and we were taken to a more beautiful place each day was certainly the highlight. This yacht is perfect for couples or a family...is spacious, comfortable, and sails beautifully. We asked for an active vacation and were given the perfect balance of activity and relaxation. We would recommend the Gypsy Princess to the most discerning guests. It was an absolutely PERFECT experience from start to finish!! We left with great tans, fabulous pictures, a lifetime of memories and 2 new, dear friends!
(Matt & Shelley, Jared & Heather)...until we can sail again!!!!
January 2015
Thank you is such a small few words to express the memories you have offered Donovan and I as well as our friends. What was a "Bucket List" trip is now an annual one soley due to both of you and the GP. Your knowledge and kindness truly make a difference and we thank you for that! Always keeping in touch until 2016 when we meet again!
If you find yourselves in Northern Cal you always have a place to stay with us. Thank you for sharing your passion with us.
Sincerely, Suzi and Donovan
December 2014
Where do we even begin...Laughter is good for the soul & there certainly was no shortage of that. We came here for a trip of a lifetime & left with just that. We feel so lucky to have made lifetime friends in the two of you. Thank you for being so wonderful. The food, the scenery, the company & the memories were nothing short of perfect. You might have 2 babies made on this trip - we will make sure their names are Anne & Shane:)
Cheers-Until next time...

May 2014
This was a wonderful family vacation! As Shane as our captain and Anne our chef, we couldn't have been in better hands! Shane and Anne were both very knowledgeable about the different areas we saw each day. In addition, Shane made sure our boys were very busy with fun-filled activities....the Gypsy Princess is well-equipped with various water "toys". Anne was a great chef and made sure there were always snacks available after each one of our excursions. Her dishes were not only delicious, but the presentation each and every meal was quite impressive. I would recommend this trip to anyone!

February Charter 2014
We had the most fabulous time on our Charter with the Gypsy Princess! It was a trip of a lifetime
for us. Shane and Anne greeted us in St. Thomas and immediately made us feel comfortable.
Anne had previously sent us the menus and asked for our suggestions and comments- she did
a fabulous job in light of our preferences we sent in to you. What an extraordinary couple they
are- maturity beyond their years and their desire to make our time beyond amazing. We love
that they not only took us to amazing places but also showed us more than we would have been
able to discover on our own! We all loved them so much and would totally recommend them to
anyone without any reservation. The food was beyond amazing and we felt so comfortable
with Shane in command of the boat. He was way beyond his years in experience. They both
totally love what they do and that is very evident in each area of taking care of their guests.

I think the best compliment we can pay them is that we now consider them as friends that we want to keep up with forever!

January 2014 Charter
My wife and I just returned from a week aboard the Gypsy Princess sailing
through the BVI. The crew of Shane and Anne were awesome. The boat was
beautiful, and the food was the greatest. All the meals, from breakfast to
dinner, were superb and plentiful. Shane, the Captain, was very
knowledgeable and knew the area well. Both Shane and Anne were very
accommodating to where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. They were
very friendly and enjoyable to be with every day. The Gypsy Princess was a
beautiful yacht. I would recommend the Gypsy Princess and the crew of
Shane and Anne to anyone wanting to sail the BVI.
New Years 2013-2014
We got back late last night and I just wanted to communicate to you that we had an amazing time. The boat was terrific, despite a few mechanical issues. Its layout was so perfect for three couples. The itinerary was fabulous and we got to direct our progress with the captains blessing. Most importantly, the new captain and cook were incredible. We were so lucky that there was a recent change. Shane and Anne were an incredible team. Their spirit and desire to serve was incomparable. The meals were unbelievable. Not sure how Anne did it in such a small galley. Shane was very knowledgeable for someone so new to the area. We were just amazed at their hospitality and they really made it a fantastic trip for us. I will certainly follow their progress and would want to charter with them again. In fact, we are already talking about late-winter or early spring of 2015. You can count on us getting in touch with you first. We certainly appreciated all your help and hope that your medical issues resolved themselves.

Thank you for everything, and I will tell everyone I know about you guys.


Reviews for Gypsy Princess with previous crew:

The entire trip was a complete success. Shane and Anne were truly professional and made our vacation quite special.
