Sail Date: Mar 2023

Though I am not sure I could withstand more - my wife and sister in law and local friends were all set on going and my knee was shot. And the ship had stairs (ladders in nuatical terms) but no elevators. And I use a cane. Not good. Hoofed it to a colleague who shot me up with enough cortisone and marcaine to make me think I was 21 again and away we went. I knew I would pay for it but the other Total knee Arthroplasty only had me in agony for 3 months. Read the other reviews for the islands but bear in mind like any other cruise time on land is minimal. The pull here is total relaxation in a setting where the crew treats you like Rex Stouts " Jewel on the cushion of hospitality", while sailing on an actual sailboat. Superb meals, no junk, attentive waiters bartenders, cabin attendants and recreation staff. And, passengers who appreciate it all. There are nooks to escape to, more than enough lounges in sun or shade. The crew appears genuinly happy and relaxed. Except perhaps for the " one stripers" merchant marine cadets who share meals with you and get to field ten thousand questions while attempting to eat. Good training and a shout out to the merchant marine who through war and peace keep the commerce of the world afloat. I will rebook as soon as I get the chance.

Cabin Review

More than enough space even for the 2 maximum size checked bags and 3 other assorted sized pieces of luggage. Why does one women need 20 pairs of flip flops for 7 days ?. Bed was 2 singles pushed together and was comfortable. Steward was a wonder.
