We couldn't have asked for a more perfect family vacation. Everything was beyond incredible and we've never felt closer as a family, so for that we thank you whole-heartedly. We don't think we will ever forget this trip and all the spectacular things we witnessed.

Fabulous Week

We had a fabulous week on Gypsy Princess with the good fortune of a fabulous crew. We enjoyed smooth sailing, delicious meals, and had our every need attended to. They went out of their way to tailor the trip to their guests preferences, including finding the best snorkeling spots and planning 2 special birthday celebrations. In addition to being very professional, they were also extremely personable and a delight to be around. Our vacation was not only beautiful sailing, great snorkeling and fabulous food, it was full of fun and laughter and ranks at the top of our favorite vacations!

The yacht was beautifully presented and the crew very welcoming. We used a lot of the water toys, brilliant for children and adults. The crew was just exceptional. We warmed to them instantly. They went to such extraordinary lengths to make our charter special and unique. From hand made fish spotting logs ready and waiting for the children's arrival, to finding the best snorkeling spots, amazing food for both us and our children. Nothing was too much for them. They are a great team and made our holiday one we will never forget, special memories. We will 100% be back

Where do we even begin….Laughter is good for the soul & there certainly was no shortage of that. We came here for a trip of a lifetime & left with just that. We feel so lucky to have made lifetime friends in the two of you. Thank you for being so wonderful. The food, the scenery, the company & the memories were nothing short of perfect.

When Can We Sail Again?

What was going to be our trip of a lifetime is now our…”when can we sail again” vacation. We LOVED everything about our adventure and were so glad that we got the crew and Gypsy Princess. The fact that we didn’t have to make a decision for 7 straight days and we were taken to a more beautiful place each day was certainly the highlight. This yacht is perfect for couples or a family…is spacious, comfortable, and sails beautifully. We asked for an active vacation and were given the perfect balance of activity and relaxation. We would recommend the Gypsy Princess and the crew to the most discerning guests. It was an absolutely PERFECT experience from start to finish!! We left with great tans, fabulous pictures, a lifetime of memories and 2 new, dear friends!

Crew was Great!

We walked on board and there was a bottle of champagne chilling with snacks and appetizers waiting for us. Shane Taylor and Anne van Riel were waiting for us with smiles on their faces ready to show us a good time!!! AND THEY DID. Honestly, Shane and Anne were 2 of the nicest people I have ever met in my life!! So full of energy; willing to assist you in whatever you wanted. But, more importantly, just nice honest people. We spent many hours during the charter just getting to know them and their background. I would look no further for a crew for another charter in the BVI or elsewhere. And, if I ever have the opportunity to buy a yacht with a crew, Shane and Anne would be my first choice for a crew.
