MERRY-TIME
July 2022
Honestly, I can’t say enough about how wonderful this trip was. It was the most expensive trip we have done yet and I don’t regret any of the dollars spent. Dwayne and Olga were absolutely terrific, couldn’t have asked for a better crew. Dwayne took the time with us at the start of the trip to work through the itinerary and made great suggestions. Olga met our every expectation with the food and accommodated all of our needs from GF to Vegetarian sitting alongside bacon lovers😁. They really made the trip extra special. The boat was well appointed and fit our two families perfectly. The attention to detail across the board was outstanding.

I would (and already have) highly recommend the crew, boat and our broker. You guys simplified the planning and coordination and provided all the crazy Covid needs to us as everything was changing. Thank you so much for helping to make this delayed 50th celebration a huge 55th success!

Was the yacht comfortable and clean?
I will never be able to say enough good things about our experience. Ever.

Was the yacht well ventilated?
The yacht was more than comfortable temperature wise, and airflow.

Was the crew friendly and accommodating?
The crew is what took this trip from wonderful to epic. I cried when I left. Literally. Olga & Dwayne took such good care of us and gave us the trip of a lifetime. I will never forget them, or the way they welcomed our family.

I am a Chef and I documented everything Olga made. It was stunning. I was not only blown away by her presentation but also by the quality of her dishes. 12/10.

8. Additional comments about the yacht and crew?
Just 10/10. I couldn't have dreamed of a better experience. I am afraid to go on another because this was just SO magical. Everything came together and we were given the trip of a lifetime and we will be forever grateful.

We had such and exceptional time! Every view was amazing. The food prepared by Olga was beautifully presented and was by far, beyond expectation! Captain Dwayne had a fabulous trip planned that allowed us to see most of the islands. He was always ready and set up the water toys and gave instruction for wakeboarding that helped us renew some rusty skills! This was absolutely the BEST vacation I have ever experienced!

We had the best trip ever!! The BVIs are so beautiful, especially the baths. Thank you Dwayne and Olga for the most incredible trip. Thank you for throwing Liza and epic 10th birthday party!!

Thank you for giving me an amazing birthday. It was so fun! Dwayne had some very awesome dance moves and Olga spolied everyone with delicious food!
-Liza

We all agreed that every time we hear the song Heat Waves we will think of Dwayne's dance moves. Thank you both for putting up with our music all week, especially when we blast it at 8am. Also, we will miss giving Olga a round of applause every time she brings our food. We loved trying yogurt cakes for the first time!! Also, thank you Olga for teaching me how to speak Russian even though I was very bad at it.

This has been my favorite spring break of my whole life. I do not want to leave. We will miss this trip so much!! We love you all!

Dear Olga & Dwayne,

Thank you for a wonderful week of tip-toeing around the islands! Olga's meals and presentation kept us wow-ed - Indian, Russian, Brazilian cuisine, our very own comfort foods! Dwayne took us on all over the BVI and it was just excellent!
MERRY-TIME
What a great trip!!
Captain Dwayne and Chef Olga were truly amazing and so fun to experience the BVI with. Thank you for your help in getting through all of the planning and protocols that were in place. It was nice that the COVID protocols back into the US were dropped during our trip, I figured that was just another trick Captain Dwayne had for us! Dwayne and Olga really did so much to give our family the trip of a lifetime. Captain Dwayne and Chef Olga were great!! Dwayne made sure he understood what we wanted to experience and went well beyond our expectations to show us as much of the BVI as possible. Olga always had a snack ready for us and the meals on board were not only delicious, but presented beautifully. Merry Time was a wonderful experience. It was our first time on this type of trip, but we have no complaints with the layout of the vessel or the amenities on board. Dwayne and Olga kept all areas extremely clean and comfortable, both when moving and when moored. Our family spent a lot of time on the fly bridge enjoying the breezes and scenery.

Our captain had extreme knowledge of the area and people, which made the experience seem
more connected. The chef was amazing and kept us well (over, lol) fed. I will definitely do another
trip and have recommended it to all of my friends.
