This was super fun! The ship is small, I think 190 or so passengers, and nearly a 1-1 ratio crew.
It is wonderful, watching the anchor lift up, and then the music starting, as the beautiful sails slowly unfold, and we get underway. you can’t really go wrong, with a friendly, helpful, cheerful crew, good food all day, and service, and the SEA! The magnificent, ever changing sea and sky! The fresh air, the sights, the tiny islands we visit… There are no elevators on this ship, but I was amazed at the fortitude with which some very elderly guests, went up and down the stairs several times a day, including one blind man. The guests were mixed, mostly couples, I’d say middle aged and a bit older perhaps, I’m sure it varies, with the sailing dates, as kids were back in school, when I went.
I went solo, and had a great time - my only minor whine, was that after a large dinner, they had music and dancing in the lounge, and as a single, I found it awkward to dance. On a fabulous barbecue night, outside on the deck, the entertainment directors started us line dancing, so anyone could join in, and it was a blast. It’s great to have exercise, after a big meal. The pool is very small, and not heated, and it’s also, on the deck where the outside bar is, and which turns into the alternative dining spot “Candles”, in the evening, so no lovely night time swims in the moonlight are possible, which I usually adore, especially as I’m very pale, so I can swim without worrying about sunburn. The jacuzzi is there also. “Candles” has to be reserved, and each passenger is only allowed one night’s dining in Candles, unless they have room.
Clean, charming, well organized and appointed.
I stayed 3 days in Barbados - beautiful, with wonderful, friendly people. Lot's to see, as well, as just relaxing by the beautiful sea.
Lovely. No excursions taken.
Very pretty. Just walked everywhere. Ocean is beautiful, as well as island, and there are many old British buildings to see as well.
I didn't love it, as where we got off the tender was just a wee village, but I understand the island offers many beautiful sights - I just didn't have the opportunity to see them.
