Glorious vistas for lunch and romantic settings for evening dinner
Captain Roger thank you for being our confident and fearless leader. We all felt safe knowing you were in charge of our voyage. Thank you for the snorkeling trips and encouragement in shark and ray alley!
Isabelle Thank you for taking care of us. You are truly a woman of all trades the ultimate multi tasker. We so much appreciate all you did for us to make our stay on the boat comfortable. Having our beds made and turned down, laundry when needed, dining on a table beautifully set, always checking in on us all noticed and appreciated! Thank you too for making us and teaching us how to make a Moscow Mule. I assure you I will make those when home.
Aimee Thank you for one outstanding meal after the other! Of course we were all thrilled to not be shopping or cooking for 10 days and incredibly grateful to have someone else in charge of that, but MAN OH MAN!!! What an incredible treat. Everyone was overwhelmed by your cooking and will miss it and reminisce about how great the food was on Syrene when back home. Big extra thanks for accommodating the special dietary requests. I guarantee you, your efforts were appreciated!
Thomas Thank you for all the important things you did behind the scenes that made our trip fantastic. Thank you for being our sober driver, we appreciate uyou friendly nature and your smile
Much Love Bryce and Erin.
Take care, Beth and Scott
Perfection. From the first day on the yacht in St Lucia, to the last day across from the Hummingbird Beach Bar, I couldnt have had a better time. As a vacation experience it was completely fulfilling and entirely satisfying. Until next time. Cheers! Morgan
Thanks for the amazing food, for the impeccable service; the trip was perfect. Thank you for taking great care of us, and my birthday could not have been more perfect! Thank you for making it so special! We were elated to return to St Lucia, exactly one year from our honeymoon. Thank you for being such a thoughtful crew.
