Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020

We chose this cruise because of the opportunity to travel in a sailing ship. It more than fulfilled our expectations, with the ship travelling under sail for much of the journey.

The ship itself is beautifully furnished with wood panelling and brass fittings.

The weather was fine throughout so we spent a lot of time on deck, but the public rooms were lovely and very relaxing.

Cabin Review

We had a cabin on the Clipper deck. The furnishings are lovely, with wood panelling and a marble bathroom.

There was plenty of room, we were able to store all our clothes in drawers/wardrobe and store cases under the bed.

Portholes just above sea level made for exciting views!!!

Cabin steward kept the cabin spotlessly clean and tidy.

Port Reviews

Tobago Cays

Great beach for BBQ. Saw rays and puffer fish in the water. Good shade. Difficult to swim much because of wind, currents and so many vessels in bay.

Shame the area was polluted with some rubbish from the take away shacks.


Vibrant town. Amazing library, worth a visit.

Cathedral not open in middle of the day.

Big open market for fresh fruit and vegies and a lot of tourist souvenirs.
