The trip was everything that I imagined a tall ship cruise to be. We had incredible weather, saw some wonderful sights and incredible beaches, but the trip was made by the crew. Everyone of the crew members did their outmost best for ... Read more

Very first cruise -- I am not your ordinary "lounge by the pool" type of person. I like to meet people, hear their story and build relationships. I like to go to places not normally visited and seriously dislike large crowds. ... Read more
