My mum is going on a 30 day cruise around the indian ocean with my dad in July and is nervous. So for her birthday I bought her a round the world yacht thrill in the hopes that she would enjoy herself and start to like being on the water! She said the crew were incredibly friendly and kept offering her cups of tea the other participants were nice as well and she was able to just sit back and get used to the waves so thanks buyagift.

Wonderful absolutely amazing. I was given this as a birthday present and it couldn't have been a better gift. I have always wanted to try sailing and this experience gave me that chance. It is a different world out there and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was just so stimulating. The crew were very professional helpful and informative. I recommend this to anyone who has an interest in sailing or is unsure of it. It's just fantastic.
