Yacht Charters St. Maarten
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We chartered this trip with Capt. Neil and his crew for our family of 17 people-- adults, teens and children.It was everything we had hoped for and more. we left St. Maarten shortly after we docked the cruise ship and headed down to a picturesque cove to swim and snorkel. Beautiful scenery along the coast and great sailing. Everyone young and old had a great time on the beach or in the water. Floats and snorkeling gear were provided . After enjoying the wonderful cove Capt. Neal cooked a wonderful lunch of paella, ribs, blackened fish, variety of salads, garlic bread, fruit and lots of rum punch and other drinks. This was the highlight of our 2 week Caribbean Cruise with our families and they are all still talking about it while sharing pictures. We were the only group on the catamaran which made it extra special and appeared on the dock before sailing in our Santa Hats and tie dyed Christmas shirts since it was Christmas Day!! A very memorable Christmas Day. Thanks to Capt Neil and crew. Don Gregory

Family Thanksgiving cruise aboard Freedom of the Seas was certainly enhanced by our Celine charter with Cpt. Neil and first mate Tamara Nov. 2012. The boat itself is a beauty, self desined and built by the captain. Refreshment: outstanding quisine prepared by the Captain himself and Tamara. Pastries and coffee/tea/bloody mary's for breakfast, any other alcoholic drink you can name was available along with a gourmet spread for lunch that our cruise ship would envy. No less than 3 salads and 3 entrees with bread and they were absolutely delicious...Cpt. Neil promised to send me the recipe for his ribs...mmmmm! He even went to the trouble of preparing one of the dishes without garlic due to one of our party's wishes. There were only 11 of us and the captain paid close attention to the dynamics of our group and decided not to add another group to our cuise because we were so family oriented. I call that exceptional service. Limited on time, he took us to Long Bay to snorkel and it was awesome. We snorkeled a shore coral wall that had a spotted eel, lobster, blue tangs as well as numerous other coral fish...beautiful. Returning we all had the famous BBCs that are promised as we went under the bridge in Simpson's Bay. All in all, it will be our favorite island excusion in 14 cruise vacations. He has added another boat the Celine 2.0 which will be operational soon. Don't miss this excursion, you won't regret it!
