Tradewinds Yacht Charters
Re TradeWinds Cruise Club – BEWARE - 17 September 2010, 20:45
Having read this review (posted 2010), I happened to be recently with Tradewinds Jan 2016 - I can only conclude the connection with the writer this year isn't representative of my own or perhaps the other TradeWinds clients since e.g. the post on 05 March 2011.
Actually, quite contrary.
The organization, i've discovered is fairly, rather, various and extremely helpful.
We had not a shred of stress to buy to the discounts provided and certainly will only believe the experience of 2010 ended up being a poorly skilled on-board user running countertop toward company ethos and requirements.
The pre-sail enquiries and concerns we made & place on group in Bequia (in order that my partner & I could get a ‘feel‘ of what to expect when cruising) ended up being very useful and I also constantly got a fast answer with additional detail, and ideas.
We unsure exactly what ‘prepping up’ the reviewer in 2010 made before sail about the Tradewinds providing, however it seems some neglect is clear from review posted, and I don’t think it was Tradewinds fault. The RCI call center has also been very useful. Its a pity the review remains as things are actually therefore very different, possibly this was a one-off.
Obviously this getaway is all about a ‘charter boat experience’ on a catamaran around probably the most scenic parts of the Caribbean, maybe not a SHIP as well as a cruise ship; additionally the ship is of finite size, and so the utilization of any sources always should be considered.
The showering appears to be the primary point of grievance; but long, soaking baths aren’t truly necessary and any mention of ‘Navy baths’ by any staff is probably an effective way to re-balance focus on everything absolutely need and a helpful sign to act responsibly in exactly how we conserve liquid, just what exactly is really the matter?
We had lots of sufficient water for showering as well as in our instance we had no issues anyway, showers warm/hot.
The knowledge was brilliant while could say we had been “blown away”; the foodstuff were superb and much much better than restaurants experienced at stop overs or on Bequia or any other islands.
Actually, each meal had been tailored to our requirements and our captain & first partner had been superb, couldnt praise more.
If it matters (also it really doesn’t) they were great ‘Aussies’ and a genuine tribute to their homeland also to their skills in seamanship and cooking. Actually, we (Brits) & all our US traveller boat-mates viewed the exact same; it absolutely was exemplary, so we would have favored to eat onboard each night rather than the nights away, but we additionally came to experience the Caribbean, so took things with its stride; everything added to a great combine.
The organisation has exploded immensely, a tribute for their offering and solution. We hope to go once again in 2017 to BVI with Tradewinds. I'd positively recommend all of them for vacationing also to join their particular club and like other things nowadays be sure to ask pertinent concerns before joining and take care to review and reflect if the Tradewinds form of vacation charter is actually for you and costs? If it is, then glance at the offering, perhaps, as a hedge against future expenses and you can always utilize the things bought at a quicker rate for greater valued charter experiences together with them and (unlike Timeshare) it's for a hard and fast timeframe for you to use & invest as you want or match. I do believe the providing is value for money, other boating charters are available certain, however Tradewinds is great. Their providing is for the more adventurous, attempting to spend some time in & from the water, seeing the pure beauty around the globe (plus the Tobago Cays are dazzling); nevertheless if you prefer mass-produced buffets with queues, mediocre food, then cruising might-be much more obtainable (for example. the programs, trips onshore with very large numbers of other individuals and large cruise ports, etc). So, vive la huge difference and what a significant difference, take a look your self.
