Our group of 8 had a wonderful time! Gareth showed us his sailing expertise, which everyone loved! The food, honestly was out of this world delish! We snorkeled, dove, shopped, hiked, paddle boarded, ate and drank our way through the BVI! Both Kristine and Gareth were always up for anything and always smiling! We kept referring to the BVI as a Disneyland for adults! The Xenia 74 is the most beautiful, well-kept catamaran!
The food was seriously amazing!! I can’t have gluten and one other guest couldn’t have sulfites and Kristine did a great job accommodating everyone.

The trip was amazing and beyond! We loved it!!!
Thank you for guiding us to choose the Xenia 74 for our recent trip to the BVIs. We had the best time and it was truly our best family vacation ever! Our kids are still asking daily when we are going on another Xenia vacation! We can’t wait to book again. The boat was gorgeous, the crew exceptionally gracious and knowledgeable and the food was inventive and simply delicious!
Joia K, aboard Catamaran Xenia 74 sailing the Virgin Islands
Thank you all so much for an absolutely wonderful week. The food was AMAZING and the hospitality so welcoming. Thank you for putting up with our antics, our very large appetites and late night dance parties. This has been the best way to ring in the New Year & we are all leaving feeling rejuvenated and maybe just a few pounds heavier:) Thank you for everything!
Happiest of New Years! Ken, Matthew, Max, Bo, Julia, Walker Cynthia and lauren.
Thank you all for a fantastic week! Every minute was a perfect and exactly what we needed.
We are going home with bi smiles, well rested and huge tummies.
Best of luck to all of you, happy holidays and hope to see you again soon.
Paul, Jan & Jerrianne
Where do we begin! This was our dream two years ago & we actually experienced it. You both made it fabulous! Words can't describe the awesome experience we had! Keep up the good work and we also hope to see you again on board!
Barbara and Brad
Gareth & Kristine,
Really, there are no words to describe how amazing this vacation was. One of our very best ones ever! You made us feel like friends, not just guests & crew. In that spirit we INSIST that you visit us in California so we can wine & dine you and take you fishing on our boat! There is a yellow fin Tuna or Dorado with your name on it!
We can't wait to come back in March/April with the family and make even more incredible memories.
Kent & Lisa
The Yacht, salon and staterooms far exceeded our expectations and were more like you would find on a boutique cruise ship, linens and amenities superior. the lustrous teakwood thorough out glowed with a honey hue, rich and warm,
as were the crew.
Gareth the perfect host and admirable and steadfast captain, keeping us in calm and silky azure waters and picturesque beaches and ports, no cruise ships in sight.
Kristine, the consummate hostess and chef, created epicurean delights from scratch with just the right fusion of sweet and savory, perfect medley of nutrition and flavor. The table was set elegantly each night with an array of colors and designs.
We expected a great trip but they both went above and beyond even taking underwater pictures of the family with colorful sea life making our experience a Magical Trip of a Lifetime.
Thank you, Champ, Peggy Sue, Casey, Christine, Gary, Juliet, and Emily
While I haven't chartered before, I am also in the service business and I know they delivered tremendous, world class service and as such I hope I have the opportunity to work again with you and your company and will hope to have the good fortune of seeing Gareth & Kristine again in the future.
The boat has a beautiful teak interior and is kept in mint condition.
Activities were numerous and fun for both generations in our family.
Each of us has voted for their individual preference:
Flexibility in schedule (Vanessa)
The anchoring locations (Maria)
The views (Ana)
The sailing part and helping with the sails and anchor (Nick)
The Soggy Dollar (Olivier)
Water skiing and hiking in Salt Point (Helena)
Kit surfing and the Bitter End (Phil)
Seeing the entire family so very happy (Jose)
We could go and on but we don't want Gareth to get too much of a big head, ha.
Thanks for creating these memorable moments for all of us
We wish you the very best
From all of us
The Cortes family
We will be there again next May and it is our intention to repeat the cruise on December 2015.
This was the best of our eight catamaran trips.

Each time we come back to the BVIs we think, how could this trip top the last one. Well you succeeded. The food stood out as the best EVER! The sailing on perfect winds was the best ever! Because everything was seen to by you guys we were truly able to relax, play games, and enjoy our family vacation. It is so difficult to disembark, but know that a little piece of each of us will remain with you.
Thank you for helping me make this our best trip yet. Hopefully we will see you again soon. Until then, our prayers and best wishes for safe travels and a wonderful life
The Texas C's.
Our deep and sincere thanks for creating a spectacular memory of such a beautiful place. From Normal Island, Peter Island, New Years with you, and Anageda, it was all spectacular.
The food, your skills and sailors and hosts, and all you did for us were much appreciated.
Thanks, may fair winds always bless your way
I found myself wondering how I could make all this wonderful adventure continue! You both are consummate professionals with great poise and style to boot. Karen and I will remember your great care an attention for many years to come! It is rare to not have any complaints about a vacationeverything was perfection. Kristine, your culinary creations could stand with the best restaurants and your attention to individual preferences was superb. Gareth, it was very clear early on our voyage that you love sailing and are an expert in all aspects of seamanship. You guys are a great team and we felt like royalty under your care. We love you guys
Bill and Karen
(and what a cute couple you are!)
Thank you so much for an amazing trip! Gareths love of sailing was wonderful to see and made this a true sailing adventure. Kristines contribution to the trip was unbelievable- the meals coming from the galley-everyone- was beyond wonderful! Especially considering she had to deal with two children (that eat nothing), a vegetarian, and a gluten free in the group- truly an amazing feat!
Thanks both of you have made this wedding trip for my son the best we have ever had.
Ric and Sue
Thank you so much for such an amazing trip!!!It was so much better than we could ever have hoped for, and not just because it was Marc and Mels wedding, but in large part because of your expertise in matching each group with the right boat and crew. All the yachts were spectacular and everyone really praised their crews all week. However, I need to put in a special plug for Gareth and Kristine on Bliss.
Ric and I have done several charters in the past, from bare boating to crewed and NONE came close to this trip. From the moment we stepped on board all our expectations were surpassed.
Though Bliss is a gorgeous and extremely comfortable catamaran, my biggest praise for the success of the trip goes to the crew themselves.
Gareth takes great pride in Bliss and keeps her in pristine condition. He really went out of his way to make everyone feel safe especially while trying new activities.my young grandchildren and a close friend learned to snorkel on this trip and he was always right alongside with the dingy to ease their fears. His love of sailing and knowledge of the area made for a great trip. We routinely sailed more than the other boats in our group and he brought us to a few different spots he knew we would enjoy when the itinerary with the others allowed. One night we moored at Monkey Point.we were the only ones there, the stars were spectacular and snorkeling was the best of the trip.
Poor Kristine had her hands full with our group (2 children that eat nothing, 1 vegetarian, and 1 no flour and sugar).Somehow she came up with the most amazing meals that fit our restrictions and that EVERYONE loved, even the kids ate better than I have ever seen. Ric was particularly impressed with all the desserts and sweet extras she made like greeting us with fresh chocolate chip cookies when we came back from a swim. Kristine is truly a top notch chef and her meals were better than most high end restaurants. I really wanted to take her home with me.
But most of all EVERYTHING they did for us they did so willingly and with a smile.like it was no problem at all. They were both great with the kids and us oldies too.They just made us all feel special and pampered all week. Gareth and Kristine are an exceptional team and are a great asset to Bliss.
Thank you is an understatement. You both treated me like royalty and were so patient and kind looking after the non sailor and at time non swimmer. I will have to go to the tailor to add inches to my waistband the food sun, wind, and laughter will be remembered always. Thank you both ever so much and I thank the yacht, she is a lovely ship and she kept us safe and sound.
Happy sailing, love you all
Kristine and Gareth
Thank you for your tireless efforts, perfect route, perfect food, perfect dives, perfect snorkeling, and perfect chef.
Please take care of our heart, it will be with you.
Certainly we will return and we will never forget this wonderful trip
Best Wishes, Love, Be happy and Take Care
Thank you for the wonderful trip. Everything was perfect! The itinerary, the food, the activities, and especially the attention and care we received. We will see you next year
Thank you for an awesome week! Both of you went out of your way to take special care of us. The children will never forget the tubing, cooking, snorkeling, kayaking, and detailed attention they received. We wouldnt think of chartering a boat again without you. Great Lobster!!!!!
See you next time
Anna and Jose
