Small ship, BIG experience

Review for Vela to Caribbean - Southern

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

As someone who is very uncomfortable in large crowds, I knew a cruise on a large liner was not ever going to be my cup of tea. On the other hand, sailing with a total of 23 passengers and 10 crew sounded like just the ticket! Add to this the off-the-beaten-path adventure of smaller, or less-visited, islands and ports and I was intrigued to say the least. Sailing Vessel Vela from Island ...

This was our third trip on Island Windjammers, second out of Grenada and first on Vela. We already loved the islands and Windjammer style. Vela was new to us. We were in love with Sagitta, but Vela was as similar as different. Gotta get it out of the way, cabins are smaller, but still comfortable and provide everything you need. Pack light, you don't need much. The ship is beautiful. It is ...

My wife (32) and I (31) chose this cruise to go on our honeymoon. My dad and stepmom had gone on the old barefoot windjammer's and I always thought the trip sounded incredible. This company did not disappoint! The trip was extremely memorable and enjoyable and we we will cherish it for the remainder of our lives. The boat itself was gorgeous and had three main common areas with plenty of room for ...

This was my first time sailing. A friend encouraged me to go and vowed that once I sailed on the Diamant I would be back. She was right. I cannot wait to go again. I cannot say enough lovely things about this company's owner, the boat captain, and the crew. I had the most relaxing, delightful time. I always felt safe. Before this trip I had an irrational fear of the ocean. Now I have a love for ...

Island Windjammers continues to deliver! We just took our 4th trip with them and had a fabulous time. With an intimate five cabins, plus crew, this is the way to see the Caribbean up close and personal. The Diamant is able to slip in places that the big ships simply cannot go, which means more time spent snorkeling, enjoying the beach, exploring islands, etc., and no time waiting in line for ...

We chose the Island Windjammer's Diamant for the 3rd time in 5 years as we can't find anything better! It's all about relaxing for us and just unwinding from the hustle of job and home-life. The crew of this boat put you to immediate ease and comfort ... taking care of everything you may need. Meals are fresh and excellent ... made on-board in the galley by a creative chef. Diamant, carries ...

Smaller sailboat, personal attention, only 9 passengers, great food, beautiful beaches. That’s why I just took my 3rd trip on an Island Windjammer boat. I’ve tried all 3 sailboats in their fleet and each one has its own appeal, but the Diamant FEELS the most like a sailboat without giving up the good stuff. The cabins are small but not too small and have all mod-cons. The crew is fantastic and at ...

I have been home for 3 days but my heart is still on the beautiful Windjammer Diamant. I will never ever forget this amazing trip from St. Lucia to Granada. I could have never imagined how very well I would be treated. The Captain Phillip and Captain in training, Andrew were the most professional seamen and also amazing humanitarians. All of the crew were the finest you could ever expect on any ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was one of the greatest sails we have ever had. Twelve days of being pampered and taken care of and sailing south bound from St Lucia and ending in Grenada. The crew consisted of Captain, Engineer, Chef, Steward and Bosun. Each and every one of them went out of their way 100 percent of the time to ensure that every passenger was accommodated in every way. Unbelievably fantastic level of ...

We chose this cruise because of the ship and the destinations. Vela is a very beautiful, three masted tall-ship. She takes a maximum of 26 passengers with a crew of 10. We had very personal service from the booking process onwards, nothing was difficult. We joined the ship in Rodney Bay, St Lucia. We were taken out to the ship on dinghies. We had up-graded to the Owners Cabin which ...
