Sun, Rum, Fun, Teach: Diamant Cruise Review by voyager1991

Sun, Rum, Fun, Teach
Destination: Southern Caribbean
IslandWindjammers itinerary takes it to unspoiled islands that include Bequia, Mayreau and Carriacou in the Grenadines. It also visits the Tobago Cays, an internationally recognized marine park where you snorkel with hawksbill turtles and in season can buy a ready prepared lobster picnic lunch from local fishermen. You may wish to do that, but your chef will have delivered the bar and a great meal to your picnic area already. Did I mention that IslandWindjammers' fare includes beer, wine, rum punch and sodas, in its price and unlike the megaships that confiscate alcohol brought aboard their ships, IslandWindjammers welcomes you to bring aboard your own favorite libation.
Now about that teaching, when I go downisland I have time to wander to the local schools, deliver some needed school supplies I have brought with me and pickup a piece of chalk. I taught eager, uniformed, polite students and teachers for ½ day or more during my first cruise. It's a great feeling to help as well as a cultural experience in depth that you will not find on the mega cruise lines ever! I've already made plans to teach at those schools again plus I'm going to learn the game of cricket! Thanks Islandwindjammers for the stress free vacation of a lifetime. I look forward to that second sail. Less

Most yachts this size have shared heads/shower facilities. All Diamant's cabins are ensuite.
