My husband and I have been traveling to Aruba for many years, we even got married there in 2005 and return every October to celebrate our anniversary. This year we had my family with us, 6 people in total. My husband decided to book a 2 hour sunset cruise for my birthday with my family. He asked me to research, pick a boat and he will do the reservation. I found the Strea and am soooooo happy that I did!
Working with Esther was a pleasure! She answered all questions and even helped my husband with birthday cake suggestions for me :) He did a great job choosing the Pistachio cake - it was unbelievably light and fluffy and absolutely delicious...we tore through that cake!
On board, we had a selection of tuna salad (probably the best tuna ever!), chicken salad, crab salad, brie cheese and baguette. We had plenty of beers, champagne and rum. It was just perfect!!! We had smooth sailing, a refreshing breeze, and a GORGEOUS sunset. It was such an AMAZING birthday that I will never forget. You realize how special it is while you cruise through the ocean past the many crowded sunset sails...yes they were all jealous, so just give them a friendly wave while you relax privately on the Strea.
Captain John is a complete gentleman. So nice, super friendly with a great sense of humor - and you need one of those to deal with my crazy family! His boat is very comfortable with cushioned seating perfect for sitting or laying down at both the front and the rear of the boat. There is also shade for those who want to be out of the sun. There is a bathroom on the Strea, so no worries about drinking too many Balashi's. ;-) If you have an iPod you can bring it along and John will play your music, we did not bring iPods with us so we left the music up to him and he did a great job with that too.
This cruise was at the early part of our vacation and for the rest of the week we talked about being on the Strea and how enjoyable it was. I wish we could have met Esther and thanked her in person for being so attentive with planning.
Oh and I still have cravings for that tuna!! LOL.
