How did you enjoy your cruising vacation?

Amazing, outstanding, fantastic, relaxing, exceeding expectations! And even more than that!!

How would you describe your Captain and crew? Were they courteous? Attentive? Knowledgeable?

Randy and Shelly served as an outstanding crew that were there for us every minute of each day. They quickly became part of our family. We often joked that watching the way they worked together was like watching a perfectly choreographed ballet. We could not have asked more from Randy and Shelly as they shared their world with us.

Tell me about your meals? Did the menus meet your group’s expectations?

Let’s just say that between the two of us, we gained 13 pounds during the week and thoroughly enjoyed gaining each and every pound. Eating on the yacht was a culinary experience in terms of food quality, preparation, and presentation. Add that to the way Randy prepared the table for each night, it was like eating at the fanciest restaurant in town. It is hard to imagine how they accomplished such luscious and beautiful meals given the limited space they have in which to work.

How is the yacht? Is she clean and well maintained? Were your cabins comfortable?

Randy keeps the Three Moons in impeccable condition. There were special places that each of our three couples liked camping out periodically. The Three Moons gives you lots of those special places. The flexible use of cushions and mats really added to our enjoyment.

How did you find the pace and the itinerary of your vacation?

A different mooring each night gave us plenty of opportunity for a variety of activities if we wanted. There was great flexibility given us. Most often, if we were not eating, our major activity was either diving off the boat, snorkeling, or just plain relaxing on the deck. Although we initially chose the Three Moons for their variety of “toys”, we made limited use of them; but that was our choice. We did use the water skies and kayak briefly which were in great shape and easy to use. We used the snorkeling gear a lot and they were in great shape. Shelly helped to make sure they fit each of us and made sure that we were prepared to snorkel. She was quick to ease some of our concerns about snorkeling and smoothly gave us confidence.

Would you charter this yacht again? If not, please explain. If yes, what are the key reasons?

In a heart beat we would be there tomorrow if we had the funds. In order of priority, here are the reasons we would jump on the opportunity to spend another week with Randy and Shelly.
1. Randy and Shelly (They were not just crew but were quickly family)
2. Atmosphere
4. Food
3. Smooth sailing and transition from boat to shore
5. Three Moons itself
6. Flexibility of activities of the week and of each day

Additional comments:

What more can we say except the entire week exceeded our expectations and we would recommend the experience to anyone who would listen to us.

May we use you as a reference?
