YACHT CHARTERS & HOTEL BARGES NEWS BLOG: May 2011 Paradise Connections

Summary of postings on our

Charter Yacht Sailing Vacations Blog & All About Hotel Barges, Cruises & Barging Vacations

May 2011 - Paradise Connections Yacht Charters
(Newest posts at bottom of page)

We've received many wonderful comments regarding the new look we have recently implemented on our web site. We are constantly working on updating info, so please do not hesitate to ask questions. We are here to assist you.

Spring should have sprung by now wherever you may be, and so comes thoughts of summer... Before you know it, it will be Christmas again :) It's not to soon to book for the holidays!

Need a special gift for Mother's Day, Graduation, Father's Day? How about a well-deserved sailing vacation? You don't have to do the charter on the holiday, of course, give the gift for dates best suited to their/your schedule!

We still have space available for European barging cruises.  Book by the cabin, or charter the entire barge. Excellent vacation for families!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
Sheila & Bob
