Late April guests on OCEAN STAR wrote
Late April, 2022, guests in the USVI texted the captain of OCEAN STAR once they boarded their flight home on St. Thomas...

We had an absolutely amazing time. We knew the weather and water would be beautiful, but we had no idea how fortunate we were to have you as our Captain. You literally made the trip for us. You were fantastic with the kids ( who both adored you) and Beth & I so enjoyed all of our time with you. Doris was great with the kids as well, and the food was always delicious. Truly the trip of a lifetime.

We will be singing your praises when we get back to the States and hope you see more than a few of our friends in the future. Kenzie just told me she already misses you & Doris.

We will be back for certain and are very proud to be part of the Ocean Star family! And we would love to see you in RI… please know you are always welcome.

When you arrived, your first impression of the yacht was:

We thought is was strikingly beautiful, with its tall rig, navy hull, and orange accents. She is a beauty! The interior was equally as nice, clean, neat and contemporary. Loved it.

What did you think about your accommodation? Cabins, beds, bathrooms:

For a sailboat, they were very commodious. Loved having the enclosed shower and the bed was very comfortable. The AC was wonderful for sleeping.

Salon, cockpit, deck space:

All very nice, though we spent little time below. The big new Bimini was great and the deck space was very roomy, fore and aft. Loved the smim platform.

Was the boat kept clean during your charter (your cabins, the bathrooms/heads, your towels, bedding, the cockpit, the galley)?

Yes, crew was always with prep, cleanup, and maintenance. A lot of activity and storage packed into such small spaces. We were impressed.

What did you enjoy the most on board?

The service! Crew was always ready with whatever we needed or asked for. I loved the cockpit and our stateroom.

Please describe your Captain (professional/outgoing/friendly etc.)

Hugh was all of these things and more! We loved him, so friendly, fun, knowledgeable, accommodating. We would be hard pressed to find a better Captain on any charter.

What do you think about your itinerary, the places and bays you visited and the activities you have done?

We quickly got over our disappointment in not getting to cruise the BVI. We even passed on going to the Spanish Virgins or St. Croix. The Captain was willing, but we found St. John to offer all we hoped for and more. Even overnights in Charlotte Amalie harbor were great, with the mountainside and harbor lit at night…could have been the Med.

Please describe your chef (professional/outgoing/friendly etc.)

Hugh was great. Enough said.

Please describe your meals (presentation, quality, quantity)

Beautiful food and upscale presentation. We ate like royals! Small portions for us seniors kept us from overeating. Every bite was celebration of the culinary arts.

Would you sail with us again?

For sure…we are spoiled for any other now.

Any other notes or special remarks?
am sure I speak for the four of us…it was perfect. We were so sorry to have missed Ellen, but Barney turned out to be a great addition to our charter. And he can fix anything and everything!

Thank you and crew for being so flexible with our last-minute date changes. It all worked out perfectly, probably better than our original schedule week. We felt so safe and tucked in aboard Ocean Star, thanks to the wonderful crew and stable monohull. Seeing St. John from the water, on island time, was a special treat. We have been on the island for 10+ vacations, but being offshore for a full week was very special, and no crowds or cruise ships to overwhelm that special island.

This trip was a “leap of faith”, finding you and Ocean Star on the internet, without benefit of a personal referral. We hope to do this again with Ocean Star, and will refer friends and family. Thank you so much.

Hugh and Ellen are perfect hosts on a beautifully maintained and modern yacht with many additional features. They blended perfectly with our family and we look forward to seeing them again soon. The food was outrageously delicious, the atmosphere that they created was perfect for our family dynamic and the locations that they shared with us were memorable. This is easily the best trip we have ever been on together as a family. Thank you!!

Guests aboard for New Years week, 2018/2019, wrote of their time on OCEAN STAR
Hugh was amazing. He made everything fun and easy. He even let me son sail in 30 knot winds! It was a great experience and his cooking skills are top notch as well! We are so grateful for this wonderful family experience! A trip of a lifetime!

Ellen was sweet, funny, happy and always willing to help or get us something. She took us on some great walks and made sure we were comfortable and having fun! She is a real gem.

Hugh and Ellen made my boys feel right at home on the boat. They were up for anything. We set the itinerary together and I was so grateful for their input and willingness to go to places others usually don't!!! Snorkeling was great and Hugh and Ellen knew all of the great spots! Also they took us at our request to all fun bars and restaurants! It was great. Everything was perfect. Hugh was a great chef and Ellen makes a delicious pain killer!
