This sturdy ship, built in 1955, is strong enough to weather the voyages across the north Atlantic as it begins its 13 days journey from Freeport Maine, to Trinidad without losing any of its classic charm, reflected in the gleaming and polished hardwoods that line this splendid vessel.
The boarding process will surprise you with its ease and efficiency. After embarking without delay and having your luggage whisked straight to your cabin, you will smile to realize the crew has not even broken a sweat and has dinner waiting for you already.
As you ease into the relaxed mind set typical aboard
a Windjammer vessel, open your mind to the experience
of your destination. The Polynesia, a 248 foot long beauty,
also called the Caribbean. The Polynesia is completely
refurbished but still has the vintage nautical charm that
gave birth to this ship when it was built in 1938.
You will be eternally grateful and will be glad you chose Windjammer as you sail into view of an unspoiled island as the crew directs you to the best beaches, happy to await your return and gather your positive remarks after your perfect afternoon by the seaside.
Originally built by the French Navy, the Flying Cloud is a ship with a stunning silhouette. You will feel a real sense of history as you sail in this striking craft, complete with elegant touches such a spiral staircase and artful stained glass windows.
On your first night aboard the Windjammer Legacy, the fleet's newest vessel, you might enjoy a barbecue on the deck. Enjoy fun games accentuated by the “rum swizzles” you are served, and run to help hoist the sails if you feel so inclined. You will find it easy to strike up a conversation when you are having such an excellent time.
A Windjammer barefoot cruise is blissfully free of the hassle and headaches of the large cruise lines. As you sail away from port and into the cool blue of the Bahamian dusk, you might feel so relaxed and at peace as the ship sways gently back and forth that you may fall asleep right where you are, lying on the deck, the twinkling stars and the ocean breeze imprinting your dreams forever.
