Our Vacation Aboard Catamaran Mariah Princess III in the British Virgin Islands

See our wonderful experience aboard luxurious 2020 Lagoon 78.3′ Catamaran MARIAH PRINCESS III in the British Virgin Islands!

We had the best yacht charter vacation sailing the BVI! We were really happy with the size and space of the entire yacht, the amenities and how on point it was overall. There were plenty of places to sit and enjoy a little privacy or join the group's party!

Many Thanks to Island Time Water Taxi BVI for quickly whisking us in their fast boat from American Yacht Harbor in St. Thomas, USVI to the British Virgin Islands! In almost a blink, we were in West End Tortola with our Captain taking care of all the Customs & Immigrations for our group. After checking into the BVI, our water taxi took us to Norman Island where the yacht was awaiting our arrival with champagne. After our tour of the yacht, we settled in with cocktails and a beautiful charcuterie board.

You'll see in the video all the beautiful food that was served while we were onboard. As a winner of 11 yacht charter culinary competitions in the Virgin Islands and now a judge in recent competitions, we have a keen eye for great table settings, 5-star service and presentation of cuisine. It was lovely!

During our sail, we visited Norman Island, Little Harbor on Peter Island, Salt Island, Mountain Point and The Baths at Virgin Gorda. We enjoyed our visit to The Bitter End Yacht Club and Saba Rock too!

The yacht dropped us off on the dock at Oil Nut Bay Resort.

We loved the jacuzzi on the flybridge with 360-degree views! It was fun using the hydraulic stern swimming platform for easy water entry. Especially enjoyable was zooming across the water like a dolphin using the SuBlue underwater scooters. There were so many wonderful water toys to keep everyone busy! The extra wide side decks made the yacht feel even more beamy than it's 36.1'.
