Fan mail for the crew of KING\'S RANSOM, from guests aboard in mid March, 2015 -
Pete, Niki, Martina and Daniel,
We want you to know that our cruise was the BEST EVER trip we have ever taken. It was a blast!
I can't believe I was worried about the children running out of things to do and our family being too close for a week to ever speak to each other again. Quite the opposite!
You kept us moving discovering,playing, sightseeing,shopping, doing card tricks and eating (Oh yes, we did enjoy eating at breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner).
You kept our itinerary running smoothly for the whole family - all ages, all interests and all already formed ideas. A time for everybody and that's not easy! You never disappointed, only impressed.
We hope to catch up with you one day and continue our new friendship. Best of luck on the Med and on your new boat. Keep in touch.
Sincerely,
Bobby, Mary, Bonnie, Tom, Thomas, Connor, Mary Louise, Reese and Gracie.
April 2013

We had a wonderful time!!!!
Love love the crew! They were fantastic. Harley had two ear infections and the crew was so wonderful with her. Just can't say enough. Niki is a wonderful chef. Food was fantastic. We enjoy every morsel.
The BVI'S were just breathtaking. The perfect recommendation in both....Kings Ransom and BVI'S.
The boat was not only perfect but so much fun. Thank you for that!!!!
We are not home yet, we are all travelling American Airlines and the entire airlines shut down. We are stuck in San Juan for the night.
The trip was one we will never forget and will have many wonderful memories.
Thank you again.
Best Regards,
Rhonda
January, 2013 flotilla charter
I am happy to report that the 2013 charter was extremely successful and, after fourteen consecutive programs involving yacht charters, this one was possibly the best yet according to many of the repeat guests. A great deal of coordination, cooperation and willingness to help on all fronts was shown by all the crews and Pete and Niki did an excellent job both before and during the charter. Their thorough attention to the details of the charter and the needs of all the guests plus their helpful communication was much appreciated. Their enthusiasm and often humourous attempts to engage the other yachts in friendly competition helped foster a fun spirit throughout the catamaran fleet.
It is well known that this charter places a great emphasis on dining and, with guests switching yachts for dinners, stimulates a good natured and unstated competition amongst the yachts. Niki and everyone on Kings Ransom did an outstanding job and received great comments from both their home guests and those that visited for dinner on the dine-around nights. This feat is not to be taken lightly considering the competition throughout the fleet.
We have received emails and letters from the Kings Ransom guests saying how wonderful the crew were and how happy they were with the yacht, the meals and the service.
Kings Ransom and her crew did a great job throughout the program and I will be pleased to provide positive references and recommendations for the yacht and the crew. We will be pleased to have Kings Ransom, Pete, Niki and the crew on future charters for these and any other clients.
Thank you again to everyone in the Kings Ransom family for such excellent service.
Guests aboard KING\'S RANSOM in January, 2013

Thank you so much for your expert sailing, your great sense of humor and your excellent taste in music! We had a wonderful vacation thanks to your efforts.''

Guests aboard KING\'S RANSOM in July, 21012
Thank you both very much for creating a very enjoyable atmosphere, your services were very professionally carried out and we cannot think of anything that Yourselves and/or Andy along with Sara could have done to improve the enjoyment of our treasured vacation.
Niki: the food Quality Taste Services and Presentations were excellent, you provided what we asked for and gave us many options to choose from, perfect choices from a perfect Chef
With some Children as Guests, Banter was more or less a perquisite of the package, but the banter that you both gave to the Children was clever and thoughtful, and it came across as, you both genuinely enjoying your success at making some Childrens eyes and mouths wide open.
We as Well Travelled Grand Parents are fully aware that we should have left all Table Clearing away to you and your Crew, many times you all reminded us that it was part of your service, however, irrespective of how much we paid for the charter neither Hazel nor I, wanted the Children to lack the courtesy of a Helping-Hand
Pete: based upon our day to day dealings, you are definitely a Class Act you made us feel very much at ease, and secure in the knowledge that we were in very safe hands.
Your Parents must be very proud of you; we have never regretted not having a Son; however one in your mold would have been a blessing (Yes Yes Niki roughly speaking you would have made a great fourth Daughter).
I have not mentioned Andy or Sara much above, as a separate letter is going to them, it goes without saying that they both served you well, With regards to the Children, Andys entertainment efforts were well over and above the line of duty. His interaction with us was excellent.
Sara provided the On Board Services that as Guests we could not have asked for a more thoughtful, mindful person to look after our needs
Thank You once again for giving all our Family memories that will be treasured for the rest of our lives
Safe Sailing, have a well-earned holiday back in England, Niagara Falls is only sixty miles from our home so if next July/August you would like to visit us please do not hesitate to email us, only cost to you- your airfares, VIP upon landing & leaving our nearby Toronto International Airport.
Best Wishes

Kings Ransom
Euros, Emily, Arnold & Rica,
I cannot think of a better way to spend Christmas than on the Kings Ransom with my family and this brilliant crew. All ten of us from Max (2 yrs) to Murray (70+ yrs) have had the trip of a lifetime. Everything (and I mean everything) was First Rate. The cabins were as good, if not better than a five star hotel. The attention to detail provided by each of you was more than we could have hoped for. I dont know if we could have fit one more activity into our trip. The scuba diving was a real treat. However, what we enjoyed the most was spending eight great days with our family in the beautiful BVIs, knowing that our every need and want would be taken care of by the most competent Euros, Emily, Arnold & Rica.

Euros, Emily, Rica & Arnold
Thank you for the best vacation that we have ever taken! Everything exceeded our expectations! Kings Ransom is incredible, Emilys food was spectacular. The activities, diving and snorkelling were phenomenal. Every day just got better and better, ending with an extraordinary show and performance by whales, Ricas slide show of our week and Euros trumpet playing at the Last Resort! Wow, what a way to end our vacation! Thank you again for your hospitality and a week that we will remember forever.

Reviews for Kings Ransom with previous crew:

The whole crew was incredibly friendly and fun to be with. They were fantastic at their individual duties. They made our trip a most memorable one. I could not imagine a better crew to be with for a week. They let us do whatever we wanted to and were very attentive to what we needed and did everything with a huge smile. We left there with 4 new friends.

King's Ransom far exceeded even our high expectations. It was like sailing a Ritz Carlton. It had tons of room even for our group of 9. It was kept immaculately clean and was incredibly comfortable. It took the waves very smoothly and had a very gentle roll at night. Fantastic.

We had three 5-star meals a day, plus snacks and apps. Niki is a very talented chef and to be able to prepare the quality of food we received on a sail boat is simply unbelievable. It was presented beautifully and we looked forward to every meal.

The great thing about it was that we woke up every morning and decided what to do and where to go. We enjoyed not having to work to some hard and fast itinerary that someone else set. We were free to go or stay where we were. There was no pressure from the captain to do or go anywhere, but he provided excellent information for us to make a very informed decision every day.

You did a fantastic job. I would definitely use Sailing Directions in the future.

Ken H, aboard Catamaran Kings Ransom January 2015  sailing the British Virgin Islands

The answer to every question is the same: OUTSTANDING!

We all had a terrific experience, from booking through drop-off.
