Captains Dirk and Sandy –
We’ve had a marvelous sail and getaway in the USVI. Your thoughtfulness and attention to every detail were just what I remembered from New England and you on my radar for the Caribbean trip I really wanted to share and introduce the experience to Tucker and Morgan. It was an added bonus to close the circle by having Laurel and Philippe here and of course, Bill was with us, too!
Le Rêve is remarkable in her comfort and performance – clearly you are proud, but worthy owners and stewards of the ship. Special thanks for celebrating my birthday on the 1st night – it was a great start.
You may not realize, but the trip was especially relaxing because we escaped the daily nagging of Covid in the background of our lives back home. Wishing you much success and happiness on all of your future cruises. Greg
Thanks for the cruise, we came back to be hosted by Sandy and Dirk like our last trip on Catatonic years ago. The discovery of the USVI was worth the travel as we enjoyed snorkeling in cool water to see so many fish with nice colors. The question now is where we will come back… Best wishes. Philippe
So wonderful to be back with our favorite crew Captain Dirk and Magic Chef Mate Sandy. It seems hard to imagine a more exciting trip than our 2018 NE Venture, but Le Rêve is just that – so beautifully appointed and wonderfully spacious. From gourmet meals, painkiller cocktails to turtle watching, snorkeling and paddle boarding, truly magical. We will definitely be back again, so happy and safe sailing until then! Xoxo, Laurel, with fond memories from Bill
Sandy and Dirk, this has been such an incredible week aboard Le Rêve. Getting to know you both and experience your brand of hospitality has been a real treat and the level of service, food and cocktails exceeded my highest expectations. While I was not on the first family cruise, I can picture how pleased Bill was with you both and the trip and that brings me joy. Memories from this trip will include but not be limited to learning to snorkel, loving it, swimming with turtles, enjoying painkillers and sunset, paddle boarding with Laurel and attracting tarpon with flashlights and simply lounging all over the boat in truly perfect weather. I generally find it hard to relax and unplug from my job at this point in life but this trip did it (whole next level) largely due to you both ensuring everything was handled and no one needed to worry. Hoping our paths cross again aboard Le Rêve or otherwise. Best, Turner
Can’t think of a more perfect way to start 2022, although it’s likely to be downhill from here. Le Rêve is a beautiful boat but all the more special with you two as our host. You made it feel so comfortable yet also a pampered experience. Loved every minute and hope we can return soon. Here’s to smooth sailing ahead! Cheers! Pam
