Touring Bequia we met some locals

My husband and I have always talked about taking a windjammer cruise and we hit the jackpot with Island Windjammers. We had planned on 2 nights in Grenada before we boarded the Diamant, but because of weather delays we arrived the night before embarking. The one night at True Blue Resort was wonderful and we'd love to go back and spend more time there and explore Grenada. On Sunday we gathered at the designated dock, which was easy to locate from their directions. There we were met by a representative from Island Windjammers who introduced us all to each other and to the bosun Roy, who handled our luggage. Once onboard we met the captain and the rest of the crew (5 in all) and after being shown to our cabins we set off.

The cabin was compact but very adequate. We had chosen the room with 2 beds side by side rather than the bunkbeds the other cabins had. The bathroom was great, best we've had in a smaller ship.

We were served appetizers and drinks right away and the food never stopped coming for the rest of the trip. Barney, the chef was amazing. The meals were varied and always included fresh vegetables and /or salads and fruit. One of my favorites was a bbq he prepared on one of our beach excursions - the best ribs I've ever had.

Cabin Review

Cabin navigator

5 cabins total including owner's suite. Most were bunk beds, ours had side by side beds with storage below. Beds were very comfortable - being rocked to sleep every night was a plus ;) Bathrooms were efficient with great showers. Browne, the chief steward refreshed the rooms daily and changed the linens midweek.
