    What a dream vacation

    Loved working with Danielle to plan our amazing vacation in the Caribbean.
    She was super patient and helpful during these trying times of COVID
    - but once we were able to get our trip booked — we had a FABULOUS time.
    Namaste was the perfect catamaran for us - the crew went above and beyond to take care of our every need.
    We all felt so pampered not only by the service but the fabulous food prepared for us each day by Lola and served with a super smile by Rachel.
    Will and Brett helped us plan our fun days of adventures whether on land or playing with all the toys in the water.
    This was definitely one of the most relaxing vacations I have ever had and look forward to planning the next trip.

    Dear Willo, Sean, Georgia and Adrian,
    Thank you for making this a dream vacation for us ! Each of you put so much care into everything. You did to make this such a special family trip. You planned so much for us and yet every day felt so relaxed. Four days felt like two weeks away !

    Thank you for somehows anticipating every vacation wish what we had. From seabob adventures to snorkeling and seing tortles, tender rides to see ship wrecks, kayacking, exploring, afternoon cocktails in the jacuzzi and ever a movie right on the fly bridge complete with popcorn ! How we had room for popcorn. I don’t know because Adrian’s insanely good food had us all but licking our plates at every meal. It was though she knows the exact fantasy meals to put in front of us. And all the super special treats from homemade pastries, bread to out of this world desserts.
    We honestly have never tasted such delicious food clearly prepared with love.
    Georgia your way of taking care of our every need without us ever seing you do itw as magical. We would turn around and where would be a tray of beautiful and delicious afternoon drinks or we would go back to our room to change and poof beds were made. I don’t know how youd id think so quickly.
    Sean your expert tender driving made what anyone lese would have turned back from onto an adventure what ended with amazing snorekling in turquoise waters. What you do always pulling out all the toys and taking the girls for the tube ride of their lives. Not to mention seabobs adventures we will talk about forever.
    Willo, you make Namaste a family and a fantasy world wrapped into one ! Surprising us with pumpkins and acarving contest was one of the weetest memories we will have from the trip. With Georgia’s Halloween decoration and delicious desserts the last night was the best halloween party any of us will ever have been to.
    Thank you all for making such a special trip.
    And thanks so much to just be able to spend time with all of you but you  did everything possible to make this a trip of a life for us all.
