Island Windjammers focuses more on the joys of sailing than on over-the-top shipboard amenities.
The line offers sailings in the Windward Islands from Grenada on the 12-passenger Diamant; its 22-passenger schooner, Sagitta, sails Leeward Island cruises out of St. Maarten; and Vela offers a mix of both. Other itineraries include the French West Indies and the British Virgin Islands; look, too, for special themed cruises like Solo Sojourns (for those traveling alone), Rum Cruises, Pirate Week and Taste of the Caribbean foodie sailing. Swimsuits, cover-ups and T-shirts are typical daytime attire on these windjammer cruises, and dress for dinner and evenings remains refreshingly casual. Cabins come with A/C, and all but two offer portholes and private bathrooms. When not bunking down or out exploring port, head out for some sunbathing or alfresco dining on deck, or retreat to the indoor dining room or lounge area.
