Looking for "Fun In The Sun" on a cruise getaway but want something different, more unique, than a big ship experience? A small ship cruise, and more specifically a sail ship experience, might just be the ticket.
Imagine gliding through beautiful turquoise waters, sails billowing in the wind. Leave behind the crowds, explore small enchanting ports, walk on white sandy beaches, swim in crystal clear lagoons, play with water toys from the sports deck.
Sound intriguing? Have I piqued your interest? Read on!
Why a small ship experience? Oh my, where do I begin? With fewer than 350 passengers, you won't feel crowded (or claustrophobic) - plenty of space for all. No lines! Intimate settings - you actually get to know your fellow passengers. Like minded travelers have many fun and interesting stories to tell. Gourmet dining showcases local and regional foods. Off the crowded path destinations. Exceptional customer service. Amazing, right?
If you love being out on the water and have always wanted to try sailing, then a sail ship is calling you. Here are five perfect destinations to consider:
The Caribbean is a big playground for sail ships, with plenty of islands to explore. Visits to popular ports and chic islands are included, but calls on small port towns, anchoring in secluded bays, private beach parties and time to play with the water toys are what make these small ship cruises exceptional.
