SHANGRI LA GUESTS COMMENTS
We just returned to Arkansas from our Shangri La charter in the BVI last week, and we wanted to thank you for steering us to that boat and crew.
Our experience exceeded our greatest expectations! Shangri La is an impressive sailing vessel. With 10 people aboard (7 in our family and 3 crew), were very comfortable and never felt crowded. Daniela and Bernd were the quenticential hosts whose charm and hospitality were unparalleled.
From the initial email communication, to the personal calls a week before the charter, our initial meeting, the sailing experiences, the delectable dining experiences, the options for daily sailing and adventures, to the sad farewell, we all had a exceptional experience. We feel as though Daniela and Bernd are now part of our family!
The dining experiences——how does one say superb 5 Star cuisine three times daily for seven days? We ate at several nice restaurants on pre trip St John and post trip St Thomas, but found Daniela’s meals exceeding all of those! Bernd made sure no cup was empty with wonderful new Caribbean concoctions, as well as an good wine selection. The music theme pairings with themes of the meal only added to the cuisine excellence.
We additionally were treated with an another host in Morgan, a very smart and personable young lady from Maryland. Morgan was a substitute for their regular assistant who had gone back to Germany. Morgan complemented Daniela and Bernd seamlessly. They all bent over backwards for our 4 and 5 year old grandchildren (of course, as well as us)!
If you were to ask Cecile and me to recommend a perfect vacation/holiday, we would answer “spend a week with Bernd and Daniela aboard Shangri La.” We hate to be too effusive in our praise, for fear you will publicize our comments, which will make it more difficult to rebook Shangri La in the future.
Cecile and Jim
All in all, it was a perfect trip. Chris ranks it top 2 with Africa and I think I agree. We look forward to going back!
Bernd, Dani, Lena
We wanted to thank you for an absolute wonderful experience aboard Shangri
La! We had the best time!!! Your hospitality and service were impeccable.
The Meals were spectacular. Dani, you are a fantastic chef! Lena, you were
great in making sure we had everything we needed and we enjoyed your sweet
smile. Now, about that New Years Party… what happens on Shangri La stays
on Shangri La. It was so much fun!! We will never forget our New Years Eve
Celebration. Dani, you are a much better singer than Bernd!
Bernd and Dani, we thank you so much for taking care of us. You all are
fantastic captains and we very much appreciated your expertise. Shangri La
is a phenomenal boat, much to be proud of.
We wish you all the best, smooth sailing and a nice breeze at your back.
Best of luck on all new projects. Please keep me posted. If I can be helpful
please let me know.
David, Karen, Michael, Kayla, Mathew
From our Family – Haley, Briana, Nicole and Terence from the Great state of Colorado: The boat was immaculate. The Captain trustworthy, knowledgeable, and with a great sense of humor. Daniela, a marvelous cook! Exquisite! Bernd, a lucky man. Lena, fabulous service always with a smile. This was a trip of a lifetime! We enjoyed learning to wakeboard, playing karaoke and dancing all night. We will never forget this trip and the wonderful crew- see you again!
This has been such a fantastic trip – a week of relaxing, sailing, eating, drinking, and being together with my sister and her family. Thank you so much for sharing your fantastic spots with us. We look forward to coming back for another week. You guys are WONDERFUL!
Daniella, Luke, Will, Nicole, Jack, and Claire
There hasn’t been a better week in my life that I can remember. Certainly for me, the Caribbean and the Virgin Islands are amazing, but the crew of Shangri La were incredible, and this trip has been a beautiful moment in time for me. I am forever in your debt.
Thanks and with Love,
Nicole and Blake
Dear Daniela, Lena and Bernd,

Also Bob truly enjoyed this and it was awesome quality family time. This was Bob´s trip of a lifetime! We will miss you…Sincerely and best Regards the Oklahomans Dru, Misty, Avery, Gavin and Grandpa Bob
Thank you Bernd, Dani and Lena for that wonderful trip. We enjoyed each minute but especially the yoga in the morning, our card games at night, wakeboarding and subwinging, the Scooter-Tour in Anegada, all the white beaches and lonely bays, the snorkeling, the Austrian Glühwein and “All you can eat – Kaiserschmarrn”, the best Gin&Tonics and Painkillers, the fabulous and amazing food and last but not least our X-mas karaoke. Thank you for everything! We really loved to sail with you!
Dear Dani, Bernd and Lena,
Thank you so much for the wonderful time on Shangri La. It was another great trip- especially Anegada. Thank you for taking care of little David and thank you for the superb food- it deserves *****.
This was our second time on Shangri La and we are sure that we´ll come back.. see you next time!
A fantastic sailing trip- thank you for everything! We sailed with Shangri La now the third time and each time it is just phenomenal – a lot of champagne, yoga in the morning and Zumba in the afternoon, Laura´s birthday party, awesome food (we loved the Kaiserschmarrn), best cocktails and unforgettable sailing!
Thank you – Shangri La rocks!!!
Dear Bernd and Dani,
We are grateful to have met you. Thank you immensely for coming to our rescue after our other boat was struck by lightning. Although that was very unfortunate, Paul and I feel that it was serendipity because otherwise we would not have found you and the Shangri La! This has been a true vacation of a lifetime. Everything about this trip was perfect – thank you for taking such great care of us in every way. The food was amazing and we really enjoyed getting to know a little bit about Austria. All the activities were so much fun! There is so much I can say, but I don’t think I have enough room. We will cherish these memories always and rejoice to see you again. You are always welcome in our home in Jacksonville, FL.
Sanya and Paul
Ha ha! Great picture. Thanks again for everything. You are both good people. We appreciate all you have done to make our much needed holiday very special and memorable. We had a great time and feel we made two new friends.
Bernd and Dani,
Thank you so much for making this vacation so wonderful! You made the trip so much fun! I loved all the water sports and meals and yoga in the morning! If we ever go skiing in Austria we’ll give you a call. The food was AMAZING!!! That was the best wiener-schnitzel that I’ve ever had! I also LOVED the (virgin) cocktails and I loved you guys! Also thanks for teaching us some German, I can now successfully call someone a liar in German. The karaoke was really fun!
Amazing Charter and Family Friendly
We decided to try something new in the BVI and chartered Shangri La for a week. Our party was three adults and one four year old. From the minute we joined Shangri La to the time we said farewll we had an excellent time. Dani’s meals were excellent and she provided a great variety of food each day – the only problem was it was more food than we could eat. Dani’s morning yoga was a hit with us all including the four year old. Before we went on the trip we were very uncertain about comfort and safety while on board, and I am happy to say that the boat is comfortable in every way and the crew make you feel safe at all times. We enjoyed Bernd’s cocktails and several really good wines and champagne were available throughout our stay. Overall this was one of the most fun and adventurous vacations we have taken and would highly recommend that others join them as well, as it is all first class all the way!
A boat full of doctors.. Safest trip ever! Thank you graciously for the most wonderful trip. The four of us enjoyed every moment of our journey. The care, concern and hospitality was evident the moment we first step foot on Shangri La. The food, the drinks and the love you shared with us will always be remembered. Our son, Liam, was as comfortable at sea with you guys as he is at our home. This was a once in life time experience! For everyone else…..this is a must on your bucket list!!!! If the winds of the world ever find you in Houston we look forward to returning the love!
Cory, Holly, Liam and KK
We have talked about going on a trip like this for years.. and wow what an experience!
We loved EVERYTHING. Thank you both for an amazing, relaxing, physically challenging week. It was filled with many memorable activities that kids and parents loved, exquisite meals and great naps while sailing in spectacular waters and secluded beaches. Not to mention a beautiful and impeccably maintained luxury filled catamaran. The food was so amazing, Danny you are an awesome cook! We appreciate the patience you had with our kids, they loved you and had so much fun. We still haven’t been able to get back to reality…..breathe iiin…..breathe ouuut..(yoga each morning) Thank you again for everything, we will definitely do that again!
June 2017 – Incredible time
Thank you so much for an incredible time!
For anyone considering a Shangri La vacation, I’d tell you that the yacht is spacious, impeccably maintained and luxurious, and the food is excellent, but best part of a Shangri La vacation is that the captain and crew have only one goal, to make this the best vacation you’ve ever had.
We spent a week on Shangri La in June of 2017 and couldn’t have been happier. Every day was a new adventure planned just for us. We could request a location or take the advice of Daniela and Bernard and enjoy the surprise. We went to remote beaches and had bonfire picnics, were led on snorkeling expeditions at some of the quieter locations and in general treated like royalty. This was the 5th time my wife and I had been to the BVIs and it was by far the best trip we’ve ever had. We had 3 generations on board and from the oldest to the youngest everyone agreed that it was our best vacation ever. Thanks so much. Looking forward to our next trip.
What a wonderful trip! Thank you so much for this great adventure! The food was wonderful – a five star experience! Can´t wait to come back for Bernd´s Shangri Lada Cocktail. Couldn´t have asked for a better crew! We loved the time here.
Jason, Katie, Ashley, Jody, Lucy, Tony
What an amazing, beautiful trip! Our family had the most wonderful vacation. Truly a vacation of a lifetime. I don’t even know where to start and what was my favorite. The Islands were spectacular, subwinging was a blast and proud of myself for conquering my fears of the ocean. The food and drinks were always outstanding… I could go on and wish we could have stayed longer. This boat is absolutely beautiful, super clean and had everything you need to just relax. Thank you for the great hospitality and grace with 5!!! Kids!

May 4-9, 2016 Bahamas Honeymoon!
We can’t thank this Crew enough! What a wonderful Honeymoon we had sailing in the Bahamas. Dani and Bernd completely took care of us. The food was delicious and the adventures, many. We loved it so much that we are doing it again in a few months on the new Shangri La! We highly recommend sailing away with these two! Lindy and Norman
April 13-20 2016 – Best Cruise We Have Had
This was undoubtedly the best cruise we have had in eight years. Daniela and Bernd took care of our every need, with great food and copious refreshments and could not have been more attentive. In addition they are lovely people, fun loving and there was much fun and laughter on board Shangri La every day.
We sailed to many lovely islands with stunning beaches, many of them uninhabited so that we had the beach, island, and sea to ourselves. On one deserted island Bernd and Daniela arranged a beach barbque using drift wood for the fire and we watched the sun set while Bernd cooked great steaks above the glowing fire embers to the sound of music provided by a large music center, brought ashore for our entertainment by our hosts. We enjoyed our food as it got dark on a beautiful warm night with nothing above us but the stars and the waxing half moon.
We took care to return the beach to its original pristine condition, before we retired on board Shangri La for a good nights sleep at one of the many safe and tranquil anchorages that Bernd knows so well.
All in all a very pleasant and memorable holiday.
