Can't wait until I can book again. The Captain, Crew do everything to make the cruise enjoyable. Pat's food is delicious and she works around special diets. You can't go hungry here.

I took a dinner cruise here with my husband last fall, and we have never been haappy with any other similar trip anywhere else since, because they never measure up to that one! The food was wonderful, the atmosphere relaxing, and the entertainment was alot of fun. I can't think of a single negative. What made me write today was a previous review I saw here comlaining that the entertainment was not suitable for the reviewer's children. My advice: If you expect a childrens' entertainer, go on a day trip. That is where you will normally find shows designed for the kiddies. Don't expect a large group of adults who spent an hour getting dressed up for an evening out with their S.O. to pay a fistful of money to sit through a Disney-level evening because you want to combine kids and adults in one outing. My children have been raised to share, and understand that mom and dad need grownup time just as they need kid time. Evening entertainers are normally expecting an adult crowd, and will usually design their shows beyond the level of the average six-year-old. Don't expect them to walk out on stage and suddenly rewrite their script in their head in five seconds because some parent(s) dragged their children out to a late-night show. Do your homework and check into the content of an evening show before you take your kids to it; that's just common sense. These cruises do NOT deserve a basement grade for being what they are designed to be.

Skipper: friendly, calm and knowledgeable. First mate, open, skilled, and great chef. Crew: energetic, friendly, fun. This was probably the best sailing day I have ever had out of at least a thousand other days on the water.

I've taken several trips on the Mystic Whaler and they have all been wonderful! The sailing, the Captain, the food, and the company. And you usually stop someplace great, like Block Island - it can't be beat. It is always a great time. There is nothing like spending your days watching the ocean or Sound go by while enjoying the company of great friends. It is the most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. I plan to sail on the Whaler again in 2011. I can't praise the Whaler enough.
