Many thanks foe the just concluded holidays to Zimbabwe & South Africa. We wouldn't have done it without Isaac and your team.
I've been a loyal customer for some time and the service I have received from Luke is exceptional. My cousin who booked recently on my recommendation was amazed with the level of professionalism combined with efficiency so Luke you've won another loyal customer. Several more are on the way!
Well informed pre-travel expectations were well explained otherwise it would have been a nightmare to be turned back at the airport for failure to complete all forms
Complaints and querries well covered
Samuel has yet again made my holidays stress free - he communicated well, kept me informed and answered any questions. It's because of his honesty, reliability and professionalism that I book with you.
We can’t thank you enough for the excellence of your service, your availability, willingness to check out possible changes due to Covid and overall professional high level of efficiency. The way staff cover for each other is brilliant.
I like the way you communicate with me all the way
It was tricky working my flights around covid and Aidan was so helpful.
The hotel, which was my choice, was the worst. Just a heads up for future client bookings
William is awesome.
Excellent service and help as usual. Will definitely recommend.
Thank you for your amazing service Jordan over many years. Your patience has to be recognised. I was so worried about flying but you put my mind at ease. It was good that I travelled to South Africa - with all the unrest at the moment.
I would not have managed without Roy and thank him very much for all he did to get me there and back!
Isla and her team are amazing. I recommend them to everyone. Thanks again for such a professional service
Thank you once again Isaac. Everything went very well and as usual your care was appreciated.
Very friendly and efficient. Helped with a change of date and gave loads of additional information. Can’t thank them enough
Good customer service
Excellent service was specific to my travel manager.
DialAFlight have changed our return flights three times most helpfully and efficiently. They have been extremely responsible to the extent of contacting a family member for us. Absolutely exemplary.100%.
Brilliant service! Everyone I dealt with was helpful, friendly and pleasant. Amy was so amazing I’ve already recommended her. Thank you for making travelling in uncertain times so pleasant.
I like the service you gave us
Gary was very helpful and kept me up to date with my travel changes and Covid rules when returning to UK. Very pleased and impressed with general performance.
In difficult circumstances the professionalism of Alistair and his team was exemplary. I would advise anyone to book with yourselves as quite clearly booking direct would have been a nightmare. Great communication and politeness from all of you and thank you again for getting us home.
Super efficient, friendly service. Seamless despite last minute changes due to Covid tests and visa hold ups. Awesome, highly recommended
DialAFlight was there to support me when my airline wanted me to buy another ticket when they should reschedule my flight due to my toothache.
They are professional and always very helpful and they keep updating the travel if there are any changes. Looking forward to booking my holiday
Thank you so much to Max and team on looking after me during my travels and bringing me home safely with out a single hiccup. You are the best
I am so happy to be back and I appreciate all the effort by your staff, Sean in particular. I received all the information about the cancellation of flights on time and my flight back was excellent. Thank you ever so much and keep it up.
Ryan was excellent - always delivers and will look to rebook with him again
Who doesn't daydream about sailing on their own private yacht to the most secluded coves in the Caribbean? But cruising?
In my mind, cruising was the preserve of a senior generation who enjoyed being transported in their thousands in a floating block of flats to a number of different tourist hotspots.
And that image stayed with me until the elegant four-masted motor yacht Windstar came over the horizon and into view. It quickly tipped any preconceived notions about what it is to take a cruise holiday on its head.
Before joining the Windstar, my mother and I spent a lovely night in Barbados - to acclimatise to the balmy weather of the Caribbean, you understand.
Just 30 minutes from the port of Bridgetown - home to luxury liners and international cruise companies - sits Fairmont Royal Pavilion a perfect hotel hideaway.
The hotel is much favoured by return visitors, and having sampled its delights, I wouldn't take much convincing to enjoy a second stay.
After a refreshing dip in the aqua-blue sea, a couple of pina colada cocktails and a dinner of fresh seafood, we began to feel human again after the long-haul flight from London.
At Bridgetown harbour there are humble wooden boats, there are grander ships - and then there's the regal Windstar.
Now I don't know my port from my starboard when it comes to sailing terminology, but I do know that the reason this 440ft motor yacht is breathtaking is quite simply her sails.
Step aboard and you feel that you're in a different era, a feeling confirmed by the sight of the splendid teak decking, which makes you want to start every day with a game of quoits.
After exploring the sumptuous cabin that would be our home for the next week, we joined the other passengers on deck as we sailed away to Vangelis's theme tune to the film 1492: Conquest Of Paradise, a fitting melody to match the stirring setting.
The particular paradise we were setting sail to conquer came in the form of the Windward Islands - St Lucia, Grenada and St Vincent - on a cruise that promised to uncover the Caribbean's lesser known islands.
To be gently rocked to sleep each evening by the waves and wake up at a new island each morning feels more like time-travelling than a holiday at sea. And not knowing what sight is going to greet you as you throw back the curtains is incredibly exciting.
To work up an appetite before breakfast, we could take a body-stretching yoga or pilates class, or else just settle for a brisk walk on deck, which always comes with a beautiful azure-blue view.
One day we dropped anchor at the idyllic 44-islet Pigeon Island on St Lucia before a tender swept us across to this verdant national park. We clambered up Signal Hill, which provides stunning views across to Martinique, before treating ourselves to an ice-cold beer and kingfish roti.
Next we headed for the spectacular Spice Island of Grenada, where we could participate in anything from scuba-diving to river-tubing, and golf to sampling rum. The island is known for its cocoa, with chocolate factory tours offering a particularly aromatic insight into how this lush green island trades the fruits of its lands.
On another occasion, the Windstar crew swept us up from Princess Margaret Beach in tiny Bequia. It was at times like this that we really did feel like royalty returning to our own private yacht. The fact that the 99 guests on board were attended to by a discreet yet congenial crew of 99 might have had something to do with that. It's hard to argue with a ratio of 1:1. Exemplary service and comfort are one thing but the intimacy - and smiling crew - was what really made this trip so special.
Executive chef Budhi Thakur runs a tight ship in the galley, and to savour the vast array of gastronomic masterpieces - from caviar to the most stylish BBQ you'll ever attend - that he and his team of ten chefs manage to produce from the tiny kitchen is incredible.
Windstar? This vessel could easily be renamed Michelin Star. I've always fancied the idea of running away to sea and now I've found the perfect place on which to have such an adventure. And my mum would happily be my shipmate too.
It's got four masts, it's gleaming white, it's luxurious from stern to bow - and it's called Windstar.
