We sailed on the Allure around Antigua with Captain Scott and Chef Niki and Stewardess Laura. We were a party of 6, 3 couples, and had no expectations. I mean what could you possibly expect having never sailed nor spent 5 days on a boat? We knew it would be fun, luxurious and an experience of a lifetime, but the trip far exceeded everyone’s expectations. It was the most incredible journey.
From the second we boarded the boat, we felt at home, comfortable and were treated like kings and queens. The accommodations were outstanding, as the boat is modern, clean, well laid out, roomy and very comfortable. The food was delicious, every meal was well thought out and a culinary journey. Niki is a master in the kitchen, not sure how she does it with just a kitchen on a boat, but you would think she was working with a full restaurant set up. The service was impeccable. All 3 of them made it their priority to wait on us at all times, but never too pushy or uncomfortable and always striking the right balance in giving us the personal time we wanted and of course getting to all know one another. At the end of every night Scott would spend the time with us to figure out what we wanted to do the next day, always offering suggestions with great ideas on how to make the most out of our time together and the wonderful island of Antigua. When we departed we were a bit sad to leave our new friends, but we know the memories of this trip will last a lifetime!
Thanks Scott, Niki and Laura for a wonderful experience! We loved every minute and will certainly be back to do it again! Until then, ‘To Absent Friends & Those At Sea’
