Tradewind Voyages Cruises Tips, Activities, and Overview
Who goes on Tradewind Voyages cruise ships?
Because of its romantic appeal, you are likely to find couples and honeymooners, among sailing enthusiasts onboard.
With a base and only office in the U.K., expect mainly British, with some European and American passengers. (Note: the initial ex-U.K. sailings operated on Golden Horizon are only open to U.K. residents.).
The line's minimum age to sail is nine, though there are no kids clubs, areas to play or children's programming onboard.
There are no accessible cabins on Golden Horizon, nor does it have an elevator so passengers should be mobile and not wheelchair dependant.
Do I have to dress up on a Tradewind Voyages cruise?
No. During the day, expect a casual vibe, with weather-appropriate dress, such as shorts, jeans and comfortable shoes/sneakers. After 6 p.m., the dress code is elegant casual, with dresses, skirts or slacks with a sweater or blouse for women and trousers and a collared shirt for men.
Swimwear, cover-ups and sportswear can be worn in the gym, on the sun deck and in the marina.
Is everything free on Tradewind Voyages cruises?
Almost. All meals, WiFi, gratuities, selected beer, wine and soft drinks with lunch and dinner in the main restaurant and watersports, with the exception of diving, are included.
Room service for Deluxe and Suite passengers is also included.
Drinks outside of mealtimes, excursions, and beauty and spa treatments are not included.
What are Tradewind Voyages’s most popular activities?
From climbing the masts to steering the ship from its two traditional external wheels (subject to certain conditions), passengers will spend a lot of time on deck.
The Marina will be popular for watersports, including snorkelling, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, sailing dinghies and windsurfing, and expect a lot of time spent around the ship’s three pools -- including a two-story 18-foot dive pool.
Best for: Cruisers who are looking for an intimate sailing experience on an authentic tall ship.
Not for: Passengers that like late-night parting and a big-ship feel.
