Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: the USA

We stayed on the ship for 4 nights. The trip has fantastic food and plenty of it made by the chef. The mates were very friendly and knowledgeable. It is a fairly primitive, manuel run ship which adds to the draw. It is very cool how the ship has been fitted and changed throughout the years to accommodate guests but everything is still done by hand and many original and old items are still used. There is a wood burning cook stove and oven which heats the water for the shower and sink, and everything you eat is made on it. We got homemade muffins, breads and biscuits every day and everything we ate was made from scratch in the galley. The food was fantastic and eating on deck in the breeze is very relaxing. You can help hoist sails, raise the anchor and drive the ship. Garth, the captain, is very knowledgeable and ready to answer any questions and share his knowledge with you. The cabins have USB charging ports and a sink. The beds are comfortable and while the rooms are tiny, they are cozy. If you think this would be a fun thing to do, absolutely do it. It was really fun and you can do as much or as little as you want. We anchored every night and took row boats out to the shore to hike and sight see, plus one night we had the lobster bake on the beach which was delicious and very cool to experience. I would recommend it to anyone that thinks they are interested.

Cabin Review

Cabin Bunks 1

The cabins are a little small for most people but they have USB ports to charge phones and cameras and they have a sink with running water. I thought they were very cozy and big enough for a sail boat. Plenty of blankets were supplied as well as towels and washcloths. They were nice, cozy cabins and what I expected on an 1871 Windjammer.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Camden (Maine)

Camden is a very beautiful port and town. It has such a neat old town vibe and the boats in the harbor are gorgeous. I would recommend staying there for a few days to see everything. There are shops, places to eat, the Camden Library, Mt Battie and lots to see and do within 20 or 30 minutes either way. Very nice place to visit.
