Byron and Michelle Spoiled Us All!
With 3 boys life is rarely about me ☹! But, on this trip, Byron and Michelle spoiled us all! I Loved the long days of sailing and watching Will learn to Slalom. I will take the "Pirate Game" with me on all future family vacations. What fun we had on Karizma! Byron and Michelle showed us all the hot spots and entertained us with games, stories and jokes. The meals were delicious and the views spectacular! It was a great holiday. Thank you, Byron and Michelle - Foster Family

Raker Family had a fantastic time on board Karizma thanks to our awesome Captain Byron and First Mate Michelle. We loved everything we did. Thank you- Raker Family

Beyond Awesome - The MOST Fantastic Trip Ever!
Byron and Michelle are the Best! They are such great people and showed us the most fantastic trip ever! They fed us so well (too well maybe 😊) and showed us around the BVI's in such a fun way.

The tubing, wake boarding, snorkeling, swimming, jumping off the top of the boat, paddle boarding and everything else were beyond awesome! They both played Uno and other games with us and the kids and were just super fun to hang out with, especially while on the search for the 'GreatWhiteHippoCrocoDuckAsoroPusArooit'

Thanks so much.~ Ryan Sparks and Family

Byron and Michelle Went Above and Beyond
I would just like to forward this lovely review from the Gobers ;)

We really had a wonderful time on the Karizma with Byron and Michelle. We have no complaints whatsoever. Really! Byron and Michelle really made the trip memorable. We all felt like they were just part of the family. I think there is always some bit of apprehension when meeting new people and knowing that you will be in close quarters for the week. Byron and Michelle went above and beyond in making us feel at home. They were able to accommodate us in every way. We would happily cruise with them again. Thank you for all of your coordinating efforts!"
An Exceptional Experience
We recently ended our vacation on Karizma, and are excited to rebook in the coming months with them! The crew's professionalism and attention to detail was very much appreciated! They went above and beyond to make sure our group was having an exceptional time, and their attention made us feel like we were at a 5-star resort. They were always ready to go the extra mile for us and truly turned this vacation into an exceptional experience. ~The Macentire Group
It Couldn\'t Have Been Better
We took a trip aboard Karizma. It couldnt have been better!

From minute one to the last minute of our trip, the captain made us feel at home onboard with an easy going, friendly charm. Right away he showed us around the yacht, which in itself is amazing: plenty of space to move about, seek privacy, lounge comfortably, sleep like a baby, and even take a refreshing shower. He exceeded our expectations as the captain of our vacation and Karizma!

The comfort and luxury of Karizma was highlighted by the quality of our meals. Nourishment somehow arrived just when we were hungry and made us feel like we were eating in a high end restaurant at every meal. It was fresh, healthy and satisfying food that always included dessert which we devoured in earnest to fuel our many adventure filled days.

The crew feel like old friends after this trip. We felt completely safe with them as they proved to be competent sailors. The captain patiently and graciously showed us the ropes and gave us the opportunity to pitch in with sailing as we desired. We hold both of them in high regard and find ourselves missing their company now that the trip has come to an end.

Our days felt easy, revolving around what we wanted to do, with no rushing or pressure. The captain gave us solid advice and told many a story about the BVIs both from natural and historical perspectives as well as the real truth about living there. He enabled us to get a genuine feel for the life many of us only dream of and personally led us on hikes, and took us to amazing spots we likely wouldnt find on our own. From Tarpon feeding on Saba Rock, extraordinary banana daiquiris, a tour of Anegada by truck complete with a picnic on a beautiful secluded beachand many more.

We left Karizma feeling we had a satisfying mix of pleasure, relaxation and adventure. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and not one of us wanted to wake up from our dream vacation on Karizma. We will be back!

Reviews for Karizma with previous crew:

Marcus and Risa were the best crew we could have imagined! They made our stay very special. This vacation will definitely stay in our mind!

Karizma was comfortable, clean and ventilated: all of it, yes! Marcus & Risa cleaned up during the week, for example when we were all snorkeling in the water, by the time we came back to the boat everything was cleaned up. During the sailing we stayed at the front in the morning / evening more in the back of the yacht. Every location was really nice. In addition we liked the fact that every bedroom had its own bathroom.

We enjoyed every meal prepared by Risa! She is very professional and was a brilliant cook! We were always looking forward to breakfast / lunch / dinner time. Risa always asked if there is something somebody doesn't like and customized the dishes, it was great!

Marcus & Risa included us in the planning of the route and islands we want to go according to our preferences (more party vs more quiet). They recommended us to go up to Anegada (which we did) and it was actually our favorite island!

John, it was great to have you as a fast responding partner at any time for all kinds of questions! Thanks a lot!

Just want to highlight once again that Marcus & Risa did an incredible job. Marcus was always open minded in some action (riding the hot dog, dive board) and he sailed us every day in a great mood to great places! Risa cooked everyday awesome dishes, helped Markus, told us the best places. They were both a great company! We would love to spend another vacation with them!
