For a ship so small, the quality of the staterooms is a pleasant surprise. All six of the staterooms are suites and have air-conditioning, although several people on a recent cruise had problems adjusting their cooling systems. Rooms have portholes (albeit too cloudy to see out of), reading lamps above every bed and 110-volt outlets.

The smallest staterooms, 1 and 2 at the fore of the ship, each have a single upper berth and a bed below that, called a double berth (though the amount of headroom on the lower bunk was so tight that only the most petite will be able to sleep on that size bed). Tall or large passengers may want to skip these rooms. These staterooms have several drawers and hooks for belongings. The other staterooms are larger and have more storage areas. Number 6 -- what a couple (married 51 years) on our cruise called "the honeymoon suite" -- has a true double bed, as well as an upper berth and hooks for clothes. The line's Web site does a pretty good job of showing what the cabins look like.

Windjammer Barefoot Cruises veterans praised the en suite bathrooms, which all have showers that are separate from the toilets. (Apparently, the old Windjammer ships had showers over the toilets.) There were issues with hot water for some, as the hot and cold faucets were opposite from the standard shower. Backed-up toilets were an inconvenience for others. Small hair dryers are included, but you need to bring your own shampoo and conditioner.

The boat is 104 ft. long and has 6 guest cabins. Of course they are small, but each has a private bathroom and this cruise is not designed for guests to stay in their room all day. Comfortable and efficient.... Read more

My husband and I have sailed on Island Windjammers’ tall ship Diamant 3x before, and love her. First, let me say we much prefer cruising on tall ships, with their intimate atmosphere (no crowds, no lines!), graceful beauty (inside ... Read more

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
