Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2015
Cabin:

5th time traveling with an old friendy crew. While the ship holds 220 we only had 155 guests on board with a crew of 110. On this ship you are special, as other cruise ship passengers photograph the majesty of this ship. But being the worlds largest sailing ship offers many challenges. There are no elevators. The ship moves and rocks. You need to be fit and able to climb stairs and manuver thru bulkheads. Children don't fit this ship. Most of the guests are 45 and older, well traveled and educated. Of the 155 guest 66 were repeat customers.

But on this ship the accomodations are first class. You get to know the crew, the captain and even the owner if he is on board. Don't be afraid to ask the captain aquestion as he is eating lunch, dinner or breakfast at the table next to you. Take a tour of the ships engine room and see the marvels that keep this a five star experience.

Then sports team keeps you busy, climb the mast to the crow nest, or lounge out on the front nets. This ship gets to go where the big ships don't go. When you go ashore you are welcomed as opposed to the shore drops of 6-7,000 people invding the shore excursion.

Cabin Review

Cabin Clipper Deck-Close to everything

While the cabin is small it is centrally located. Great access to bar, dining room, lounge. No inside or outside noises to bother you in this room
