My family had a great time during this woderful trip to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Even as San Diegans, it was a nice experience to feel like tourists and enjoy the boatride on the bay. Everyone felt safe on the RTW, appreciated the clean amenities, bar, free chips and overall service, thanks to Captain Jim, BB, Captain Matt and crew.
Best way to celebrate a birthday - Jim and the crew are so kind and will do anything to make your wishes happen!!!🥳
1000% HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! We rented this yacht for a co-ed Bachelor/Bachelorette event and we had an AMAZING time. BB's communication was on point, anything I asked she replied immediately. The whole crew was super friendly. It got a little windy and they even provided some blankets for us. I can't express how awesome this experience was.
What a way to celebrate! Thirty minutes before we boarded the San Diego skies decided to pour rain with thunder and lightning. Captain Dan was ON IT! He was furiously watching the radar and ensured our safety on board once the storm passed. We ended up with beautiful skies, calm water, and the time of our lives on board! Bernice fit right in with our theme, specialty cocktails, and was an amazing Cruise Director! The whole staff added a level of fun to our evening and took us on the most memorable trip! Thank you so much RTW crew for the best birthday I’ve ever had!
