I travel with Island Windjammers on their Sagitta ship and had a wonderful trip. Our Capt Matt was incredible, the ops man Andrew took great care of us and the rest of the crew was tremendous. They looked after our needs and were a delight to be around. The food and service were great. Being able to eat a lot of our meals on deck was great. We also had a few meals on shore which was a nice surprise. With the small ship we were able to go into smaller ports away from the large cruise ships and had a lot of the places to ourselves. it was nice staying away from the large crowds and have beaches and towns to just us and the locals. I would highly recommend traveling with Island Windjammers and look forward to making another trip with them again in the future. This was my first cruise with them but definitely not my last.

I would go sail again on the S/V SAGITTA with Islandwindjammers in a minute! Sailing on the motor sailor vessel SAGITTA from October 18 to November 1 2015 was the trip of a lifetime. SAGITTA is 120 feet long, and crew is about 10. It holds 24 passengers. We embarked St Lucia and visited Antigua, Nevis, St Kitts, St Barths, St Maarten, Domenica, Martinique. Having only 21 passengers aboard, we enjoyed visiting to be had no where else. 12 nights and 13 days were spent getting to know each other and developing long-lasting friendships. Excursions onto the islands included visits to forts, rain forests, beaches, businesses, little towns, rural places, and a volcano that wiped out capital city. Our guides were local folks who knew all the histories of the islands they called home. One could choose a hike, a walk about town, a swim, an island beach barbecue, drinks at beach establishments, or reflect on the tarpin and turtles and barracuda, or take a snorkel swim over coral reefs. This trip was bliss. Chef Lenny and Chef Robert put three square meals in front of all of us daily, with hors d'oevres and sagittaritas at 5 pm, and little muffins and coffee before breakfast at 7 am. Steward Brandon and Steward Herschel served everything to us with elegance, good humor and much joy. Our rooms were cleaned before we knew it. Captain Matt and First Mate (also a Captain) Simon made sure our ship ran on time and with accuracy and safety first. The weather cooperated FULLY! Engineer we didn't get to see to much, because he was busy below running everything, right under our noses! He gave tours of the Engine Room! Bo'sun Mark ad Deckhand Roy ran us all back and forth to the beach and towns and excursions, painted and washed deck items, weighed and let the anchor, set and furled the sails, and cleaned up after us so fast we didn't know we even made messes! For Manager Katy, her first trip in this position seemed like her 50th trip; she made the job look seamless! There is no weight room or exercise facility on this boat, but there are stairs, hikes, swims, walks, and dancing that more than make up for these things. Cabins are big enough to move around it and the mattresses are pure clouds! We made much of our own entertainment, from reads to swims to hikes to games we brought along and were on the ship. There is a ships library as well. WIFI can be had on an island at a restaurant. Teaching a German politician American slang was one of the best parts of it! NOT having computers was the absolute best part. One HAD to be in social contact in spite of ones-self! Vacation was TRULY vacating from everything. We watched sunrises and sunsets, got sun, got more sun, got wet, got more wet, and got a great time with everyone! No other vacation I have ever taken has been a better way to spend the time and the money. Worth EVERY SINGLE DIME. Read Less
