Just returned from the "Tempting 10" sailing on the Diamant. Had a great time. We sailed 9 times with Windjammer Barefoot Cruises, unfortunately they are no longer in business. We couldn't wait to sail again on a tall ship. Even though the Diamant is a smaller ship, there was plenty enough room for the 11 passengers and 6 crew. Cabins were surprisingly spacious with a nice size bathroom with a lot of hot water and plenty of storage space, however we were told that we had the larger cabin(Cabin #3). The boat was very clean and well maintained. Food was great and it was amazing to see what the chef (Philbert)can do in that tiny galley! The captain and crew were more than accommodating and very professional. There were not a lot of shore excursions, however you can go to the beach,snorkel, sit on the boat and read a book or go into town or set up your own excursions. The captain can set up scuba diving for those who choose to do so. The itinerary included islands that the larger cruise ships don't go to. Overall, we had a great time time and would highly recommend Island Windjammers and the Diamant for those people who don't want the big cruise ship experience.

Cabin 3
We were told Cabin #3 was one of the larger cabins.
