    Private Sunset Sail for 2 opinions

    What do you all recommend when it comes to a private sunset sailing company? We will be in Aruba for both our honeymoon and my soon-to-be wife's birthday. I would love to surprise her with a romantic sail at sunset. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

    As wonderful as it sounds, I know many budgets cannot afford the Morning Star.

    Tranquilo's Captain Anthony does private sails Custom Tailored Charters, and I honestly could not think of many things more romantic than a honeymoon sail aboard his boat.

    Sounds great!

    Thank you all for your opinions. We are booked with Morning Star. After reading reviews and looking over their website, I'm very excited! On a more personal note, not to look improper, if anyone has went on a private sail, do you tip at the end? I'm just not sure what the proper protocol is. If you could get back to me, I'd appreciate it!

    We went on the Morning Star private dinner cruise for our 10 yr. wedding anniversary a couple of years ago. I was hesitant to spend the money but....it was worth every penny!! Yes, we did tip at the end of the night.

    Here was one of our desserts after dinner on the Morning Star:

    good deal

    The pictures look fantastic. I'm very excited for the experience. Might I ask you how much you tipped? I just don't want to over tip or God forbid, insult them with a low tip. If you want to private message me, I understand. Thanks!

    Great choice!
    There's a good chance that it will be the highlight of your vacation.
    Yes, we did tip as well.
    It was $900 so we gave them $1,000.

    I forgot to add that you can save 10% with a free bottle of champagne if you purchase the Visit Aruba Card....
