Sail Date: Jun 2014

If you liked the old Barefoot Windjammer cruises, you'll love an Island Windjammer cruise. We got on the ship with 22 strangers and got off with 22 new good friends. You know you're going to have a good time when you know all your shipmate's name and the crew's names in the first couple days.

The Sagitta is a 120', 3 masted sailing ship. Room enough for 24 passengers and a crew of 10. The cabins are compact but large enough not to feel cramped. Lots of drawers and shelves for storage (as much as any hotel room) and the bathroom is very functional with a separate shower. The rooms each have their own controls for air conditioning. The seas can be a little bumpy at times, but not enough for most people to bother needing medicine. If you're prone to car sickness or air sickness, get an over the counter remedy and take it each morning.

The food is excellent. 3 great meals each day with fresh fruit and vegetables purchased during the island stops. All the wine you want is served with dinner (and far into the night if you so desire). At 5:00 each day snacks and a rum punch are served. During the snack time you learn about the next days itinerary. In addition to the free rum and wine, there is a cooler with iced down beer and sodas available all day long (all included in the price). Dressing up for dinner usually meant putting on a clean tee shirt...shoes sometimes.

Cabin Review

Cabin Double room

Roomy enough with plenty of storage space. Individual controls for air conditioning. Daily cleaning a tidying up when we were gone.
