Reviews for Sweetest Thing with John & Alyse:

John & Alyse were wonderful! I don’t think either of them sat down, ate or slept while we were on board. They were either busy preparing meals, sailing, taking us out on excursions or cleaning up from the assortment of activities that took place.

The accommodations were very nice - comfortable and clean. it was always a treat to come down after breakfast to a made-up bed and usually to finding our items hung out to dry folded for us on the kitchen table.

The itinerary was great and we got a good amount of time spent sailing and doing land excursions.

Kimberly M, aboard Catamaran Sweetest Thing sailing the Virgin Islands

Additional reviews:

Trip was the best we have ever taken. Seriously – we discussed it.
Alyse and John:

Made it back late last night after some delays in Atlanta. Mossys never made it out of Puerto Rico yesterday.

Tonight will be the kids’ first non-Alyse meal in over a week. I am expecting a revolt. Trip was the best we have ever taken. Seriously – we discussed it. The best ever. The boat and the BVI were only part of that. You and John made it the success it was. Thank you again for waiting at the airport with us. Icing on the cake.
Far more wonderful than we could have imagined for which we truly thank you!
John and Alyse,

We have finally run out of adjectives! This has truly been a phenomenal with memories of a life time. Far more wonderful than we could have imagined for which we truly thank you!

Mike and Jenny

Reviews for Sweetest Thing with previous crew:

Our crew, Jackson and Chelsea were fantastic. They were very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. They shared information about the islands and Chelsea's food was healthy and delicious.

Sweetest Thing was more spacious than we expected. It had A/C although we opted to keep our port hatches open for the fresh air. It was clean. We were traveling with 2 kids and it was nice they each had their own cabin and their own bathroom, each with a shower. The whole yacht was kept clean and tidy.

The food was perfect. We enjoyed every snack, entree and dessert. Chelsea always added a little something to add to the presentation. It matched our preferences perfectly.

The itinerary exceeded our expectations. We covered more territory than expected. We could relax comfortably in the sun or shade while sailing. And every stop had something a little different to offer. Jackson informed us of our choices and we were always happy we took his advice on what to do.

Thanks for your help. We had a fantastic trip!

Carolyn B, aboard Catamaran Sweetest Thing sailing the Virgin Islands

You were great. The boat was great. Chelsea and Jackson - beyond words. My research was spot on, plus a million percent.

Stacey S, aboard Catamaran Sweetest Thing sailing the Virgin Islands

Chelsea and Jackson were beyond friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating. From making sure all our favorite snacks were aboard, drinks cold, to listening to what kinds of activities we wanted to do and offering to make special stops along our planned itinerary or taking the kids for extended tubing rides.

Sweetest Thing was incredibly clean and well ventilated. We loved the back sun pad, the bean bags in front, the comfortable rooms, the lounge areas/tables. It was all great. But Jackson and Chelsea made it the best it could possibly be.

The food was incredible! We joked we were handing out Michelin stars. Breakfast, lunch and dinner and of course the desserts were all absolutely amazing. Just absolutely stunning! Incredible what Chelsea does in the small galley kitchen. I researched this aspect extensively, and her reputation is 100% accurate.

How to put into words. Best vacation ever. It was absolutely breathtakingly amazing! And when we saw something we wanted to experience – Jackson was quick to say: “would you like to stop and check it out?” Just perfect.

Sailing Directions was great. Incredibly responsive. Thanks for everything, John. Website was the best out there, in my opinion. The best search engine out there.

The kids had a marvelous time. Everyone had the best time. When this request for a review came in, the kids were quick to say: “Make sure you give Chelsea and Jackson the best for everything!” It was truly a spectacular experience.

Stacey S, aboard Catamaran Sweetest Thing sailing the Virgin Islands

Brad and Lesli did an outstanding job as captain and first mate. They were very friendly and attended to every request in a polite, courteous and efficient manner. The boat was well provisioned exactly as we had requested on our preference sheet. Brad even took special requests for his runs ashore. We couldn't have asked for a better crew! Brad's experience as captain gave everyone aboard a sense of security and calm. He really seemed intent on making our days in the Caribbean the absolute best. He succeeded!

Brad and Lesli were constantly cleaning and did an excellent job with respect to the boat. Although we didn't spend a lot of time in the cabins, they were comfortable and well ventilated.

Lesli's presentation at dinner was as good as in any high-end restaurant and her desserts were simply outstanding!

The area we sailed is rated as among the most beautiful on earth. We all certainly concur with that assessment.
