All this and much more I promise, you will experience aboard the 73’ Schooner Jambalaya, because it just happened to me! Captain Peter and Sylvie created for my wife and me, more than a vacation. We enjoyed time encapsulating the past, present and future, revealing another reality I never dreamt of living. Many thanks to Peter and Sylvie. Hope to see you both and the Jambalaya again soon!" ~ Michael & Esther (June 2013)

"All four of us enjoyed the best sail of our lives and appreciate the 5-Star voyage you put on for us, never again will I sail on a small boat after enjoying the space on your schooner! The BBQ Dinner in the Tobago Cays was a real treat! The Indian Head massage watching the sunset on deck was to die for! You made us feel so special. Thank you so much for an experience none of us will forget." ~ Graham, Diane, David & Alison (May 2013)

"Thank you both for your kind hospitality on Jambalaya, yet again. It was great to be part of the crew during the regattas. Presents much appreciated too; we will be toasting Team Jambalaya when we open the bottle. It's all about sharing experiences, and Antigua and St Barts Regattas have been terrific experiences." ~ Lyster & Sheena (April 2013)

"A holiday for us all—adventure for the children and revelation for us in your very capable hands. The children will always remember their trip—their first sailing expedition. We look forward to coming back soon. With grateful thanks" ~ Jeremy & Jackie (February 2013)

"We are already missing our fruit and coffee in the morning along with ALL the other fantastic foods. We truly had a wonderful time with the two of you. In addition to the fun sailing, great locations and relaxation, we really enjoyed the nights talking to you before heading off to bed. You and Sylvie were so much fun both Carol and I really had a blast. I feel like we started vacation with two strangers and left with two new friends." ~ Richard & Carol (January 2013)

"Fabulous, even better than our first trip on Jambalaya last year. Once onboard, forget your misery, disengage your brain, smell the salt air, feel the movement of the boat. Peter, the Master of sail management, Sylvie, the Master of the kitchen and New Years acrobatics! What a terrific combo! Looking forward already for our return in 2014!" ~ Paul and Ruthie (January 2013)

"We have had a fabulous trip on Jambalaya in the Grenadines. Sun, Sea and Sylvie's cooking! What a wonderful chef, a fabulous food experience every day! Peter, our captain gave us a steady hand and knowledge along with wind, rain and lots of laughter!" ~ Linden and Evelyn (December 2012)
