The dinner cruise on the Cat VI was nice although it felt a little restrictive initially due to Covid but Fernando was a great host and kept us entertained. Katie was great as well. The tacos were okay, lol!

Thank you so much for joining in with The Cat on our Sunset Dinner Sail. Taco Tuesday is always a fun event. My personal favorite. As you experienced, The Cat takes the "new normal" of Covid's seriously. Many rules for The Cat to comply with. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Have fun, stay safe and sail with us again. Best. Lilibeth

The crew was friendly and accommodating. The food was good and plentiful. Chicken, pork, beef and vegan options were served. The drinks were ok. If you like them strong, don't add ice. The music played could have been more universal. Everyone does not like techno. Would have enjoyed seeing more of the sunset but because the boat was constantly moving, buildings and/or mountains were sometimes in the way. Viewing the land from the water was amazing. Over all a good experience especially for the price. P.S. you will be barefoot the whole time.

Thank you for your review and for your feedback, Trish. The VI Cat is very lucky to have the best crew in the St. Thomas. So happy to hear you hear you enjoyed the scratch-made BBQ from our caterers. They do provide ample portions for everyone and we do accommodate to our vegan and vegetarian guests. Our open bar is available to anyone that is 21 older and we have a wide-range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available. I'll be sure to mention the music selection to the Crew. We agree that it is a pretty fantastic price for a 2 hour boat ride, plus a full meal and open bar with beautiful scenery. You guys were super lucky that you got to see the sunset during the Harbor Lights Dinner Sail! What an added bonus!! Be sure to come back and visit with us again, Ali
