    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hey Debbie, Thanks for the review. I'm sorry to hear one of the dishes ran out before you could enjoy it. I'll pass that along to our crew to make sure enough is prepared for future sails. Hopefully, there were plenty of other dishes you were able to enjoy along with a fun day out on the water. Thanks again and have a great week!  Best, Brooke
    Great sail with knowledgeable and fun crew.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    We are glad to hear you had fun out on the water. I'll be sure to let your crew know. Thanks!  Best, ​Brooke
    Relaxing, peaceful sail with fresh and delicious brunch
    The one complaint is I am gluten free. I wrote a message with the original reservation, but unfortunately the crew onboard was not familiar with my diet. There were hardly any gf options, so I ate fruit. I was pretty disappointed with the lack of care, I would have liked to be warned at least, if they could not accommodate.
    This was a birthday present and I couldn't be happier. My wife and I had a wonderful, relaxing time.
    The Captain and crew of the Mystic Whaler were fabulous! It was a great experience and I would definitely go back for another cruise. In fact I want to do one of the overnight cruises next year!
