Ship Facts: Sagitta Review (by Cruise Critic!)
About as good as it gets

Sagitta October 2013 six day cruise

This was my second cruise on Sagitta and sixth with Island Windjammers. I have just finished my seventy fifth cruise so I have some experience. While I do enjoy cruising on mid size cruise ships doing the real deal on small sailing ships is a dream vacation.

Throw a couple of bathing suits, a few T shirts, a pair of shorts or two in a ditty bag and you are good to go on the adventure of a lifetime.

If you like formal dress and fancy feed read no further, this is not for you. If you enjoy long lines and large groups forget this.

With only a maximum of 24 passengers on board (mostly experienced well traveled shipmates) life onboard is relaxed and enjoyable. Good conversation, socializing, sailing and snorkeling are the highlights. Snorkeling gear is provided and better equipment than my own.

The islands visited are excellent and often in coves exemplary for snorkeling and hiking.

Beer, wine and sodas are included in the price and you are free to bring spirits.

The rooms are comfortable, individually conditioned and with very nice facilities.

The crew is very friendly and you will know most of their names before you depart.

Engine room tours and bridge visits are interesting.

The ships of IWJ are small and do move about in some weather conditions, which I love but others do not appreciate. For those precautions are prescribed.

Frankly if you need a little adventure in your life and are looking for something you will remember fondly for a long time look no further.
