Preference Sheets: Avoid a Comedy of Errors

Writing like Shakespeare may not be possible, but completing a preference sheet to the fullest will reap it’s rewards.

The ultimate in privacy, freedom and luxury, chartering Sweet Escape “is an amazing experience”. 

When you are being true to yourself, you are completely honest with what you feel, deeply value, and desire. It also means communicating your feelings wholeheartedly both with yourself and others, allowing your truth to flow through you and into the world. (www.mindbodygreen.com)

The tone and atmosphere in Shakespeare's play Hamlet make significant contributions to the play through establishing the mood and state of mind of the characters. Well, essentially so does your preference sheet to your charter experience on Yacht Sweet Escape. Hamlet is launched extremely well because there is no long drawn out introduction to the plot. The story begins almost immediately. You do not have to write as prolifically as Shakespeare but by making sure you take some time and address the preference sheet, you will equally contribute to the atmosphere and characters that surround you. Preference sheets are a starting point for the conversation between crew, guests and brokers to achieve the ultimate in a bespoke experience.  

Theater has always been a collaborative art. In Shakespeare's time, companies expected a new play every week. The nature of this schedule, in which a new play could be commissioned weekly, required playwrights to collaborate. Much as your preference sheet may be passed through the hands of a your employees, your relatives, your friends and charter broker, make sure you still take full advantage by reviewing and contributing what is important to you.

“Pleasure and action make the hours seem short.” – William Shakespeare. For the best holiday you will ever have, you should plan ahead.  Holidays and special occasions are booked seasons in advance.  Planning your trip around a special event, you will want to secure the dates as soon as possible.  Your entourage is important.  If you want a romantic vacation for 2 or a celebration with 12, that is entirely your choice, but advance planning will make sure you have the loved ones or party pals with you. Your preference sheet can advise of these special events or what theme nights you might prefer!

If you want to do the Exuma Cays, I mean all of them, you will be on the move a lot.  Yacht Sweet Escape has a cruising top speed of 19 knots and a shallow draft of 6’8”, making getting around in style pretty smooth. A guest should take thoughtful consideration and heed to our Captain’s advice regarding distances, transit times, and local attractions.  If you have a bucket list in advance that is great, but be open minded because there is so much more to see that our experienced crew can find for you. “It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.” -William Shakespeare. Nothing has to be set in stone pre-charter, though it is great to extend the Captain and crew a few ideas of what activities guests will enjoy.

“Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.” – William Shakespeare. One of the areas that sets the whole tone for the trip is the type of service one is expecting: white-glove or even an overly interactive crew.. Your crew will check on your regardless and there are call buttons and the intercom through Control4 screens.

It’s entirely your choice. You can always voice your preferences while onboard, especially for the first time charterer who is initially unsure. Our Captain and the entire team will do their best to assist you by making guests feel welcome and alleviate any apprehensions.

Be true to ones self, but preferences need to cover all members of the group and not only the primary charter guest.  Be honest, informative and prepare for a serious pampering, As You Like It.  Whether you have a sensitive palate or serious food allergies, your provisioning is tailored to your request and preference sheets are the place to make your needs clear. 

“Just live for yourself and before you speak, listen. Before you write, think. Before you spend, earn. Before you pray, forgive. Before you hurt, feel. Before you hate, love. Before you quit, try. Before you die, live.” William Shakespeare. The words of our guests are the best recommendation for Yacht Sweet Escape.
