How would you qualify skipper:

Derek was great! We loved being on board Karizma with him and Brenda, they made our trip the most memorable and enjoyable. My kids adored both of them and cried when we drove away after it was over, they missed them so much.

5


How would you qualify rest of the crew:

Brenda was just as fantastic as Derek, they are a wonderful couple! Her food was really, really good and I am planning to take a stab at several of her recipes now that we're home. She made sure the kids always had something to eat that they liked and pretty much stuffed us all day long!

4


How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc):

Karizma is a very nice catamaran, although she did have a few issues during our sail (water, drainage/pipes and AC). It was a great choice though for our family due to rooms and available features (although I think next time I'll look for a boat with dry showers, since we weren't terribly well versed on the options on boats for bathrooms/showers and think that was one thing we didn't love). The boat was very nicely decorated!

5


How would you qualify the itinerary:

We went to all the top places on our list, despite having some not so great weather and rougher seas for the first day or two.

5


How would you qualify the sports and leisure activities/equipment on board:

Karizma has lots of great equipment on board and it was a real treat for our kids. Noodles, float mat, snorkel gear, bean bag chairs, etc. It was all great!

5


How would you qualify the food and drinks:

Derek and Brenda took care of us 200% with food and beverages. i was never hungry for a moment, every meal was fantastic and Derek made sure we had a drink in our hand every time i thought I could use one. He must have read my mind when I wanted a morning mimosa (which we had with all varieties of juices, it was a fun treat changing it up from day to day), or an afternoon cocktail, or a refreshing glass of wine with lunch.

How would you qualify the entire experience of your trip:

One of the most memorable experiences of our lives. We can't quit talking about how much fun we had despite a couple of minor boat hiccups and some less than desirable weather. Derek and Brenda made us feel like we were all family members vacationing together. I had wondered how it would be in a smaller space with two people you didn't know before hopping on board and never could I have imagined it would be such a great experience. We were all sad to say goodbye to them at the end, they took such great care of us. They were so great with my kids and all of us and I'm so glad we had them for our charter!

How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc):

We chose this yacht because it looked like it would accommodate our group of 8 comfortably. While we did all fit around the table (priority#!), some of us, being tall, didn't fit in the beds all that well. That said, the combination of the gentle rocking of the sea and tummys fill of delicious dinners and wine, we had no problem sleeping :- )

loved it! We hit just about all the high points of the main islands and got to sail to Anagada without motor!!!

How would you qualify the sports and leisure activities/equipment on board:

So many toys, so little time....the favorite was the floating lily pad, by far!!!

5

Delicious and quantiful! We started every morning with a fresh fruit platter and had a snack every afternnon. Was never hungry but managed to eat every morsel!

Loved every minite - no complaints! Hope to do it again soon some day.
