After reading over all of the reviews thus far, I see that you either love the experience of sailing on the Ragamuffin . . .or you don't. From what I could tell, the majority of the 'complaints' were about Loren's ah er . . personality. Loren does come across as gruff and perhaps a wee bit impatient. But when mechanical and/or weather issues spring up at a moments notice, you don't have much time to stop and give sailing lessons. But if you are willing to learn and you love and seek adventure, then this is the cruise for you. The Ragamuffin is a beautiful and well maintained boat and home to Loren and Jo. They've been sailing her throughout the Caribbean for years, so they know where all the great beaches and bars are. They take you to places where locals go, places you wouldn't see on any other type of cruise. You enjoy great food and wonderful local culture at every stop along the way. The snorkeling is great off of Loblolly Beach on Anegada Island and I had the largest fresh caught lobster dinner ever, at Neptune's Treasure that same night. That was just one of many exceptional meals we had throughout the week. Jo is a fantastic cook too and she works magic in her little galley. And yes, we had freshly made bread almost everyday. So if you are a sailor or want to sail the Caribbean, Loren and Jo can certainly show you the ropes or I should say lines. If you want to be spoiled and treated like a princess then stick to the big cruise luxury liners, but if you want adventure, the feeling of being close to the sea and experiencing the local culture of the islands then this sailing cruise is for you.
