Very first cruise -- I am not your ordinary "lounge by the pool" type of person. I like to meet people, hear their story and build relationships. I like to go to places not normally visited and seriously dislike large crowds. This is the perfect cruise for doing so. The Diamant is a beautiful sailing vessel - She is maintained exquisitely by her Captain and Engineer (with help from all the crew!) Activities -- not many while aboard -- sunning, watching the sails, listening to music, looking for flying fish on the waves and hoping we catch a fish! A good time for relaxing conversation and being mellow Service: Marlan is simply amazing... I am not used to having someone "memorize" the way I take my coffee, or my preferences for wine. (note -- I am usually the one doing that for bosses and clients!) He "allowed" some of us to closely watch his napkin-folding skills and attempt to copy his artistry... Shore Excursions: Dinghy-service all the way! Sometimes, you get dry landings, sometimes you get wet ones! Snorkeling, beaching, driving tour on Bequia - there was always something to see, and a turtle/fish to stalk. I will always remember King automatically repeating: "Take yer time, Hand on Shoulder, Take yer time!" Not a person got dropped into the drink accidentally because of their care. Cabin: Tiny, yet was able to hold our things -- dress is casual, we are mostly barefoot the entire cruise -- you don't need a lot of space. Comfortable, the A/C kept things fresh. Dining: Lenny was our cook this week -- The portions of food were perfect -- I did not gain a pound on this cruise, but I cleared my plate at every meal as it was delicious! All in all, the care given to each member of this cruise was over and above -- the crew was genuinely happy to have us aboard -- I was sad to leave on disembarkation day! I look forward to a future trip on Diamant! Read Less

I arranged for the Windward Islands cruise with Island Windjammers for my wife's birthday. This is the first time for either of us on a sailing cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The crew was incredible - they worked to make sure we had everything we needed or wanted. Food was great - I couldn't believe the meals that came from the ship's galley. This itinerary is very laid back - a great chance to really disconnect from the everyday rush - and just relax. Watching birds, the clouds, islands that we passed while sailing created a serene atmosphere. The 8 other guests on the boat were very pleasant and given that it was such a small group - we got to know them all quite well. I highly recommend Island Windjammers - Exceptional Trip! Read Less

IWJ exceeded every single one of my expectations. This was by far the best vacation we've ever taken. My boyfriend and I talked to their trip planner when deciding whether to do the cruise. She was amazingly helpful, even offering summer beach read recommendations! We booked it and received periodic updates and pre-boarding information. I do wish they had given us even the most tentative itinerary, though--even after we got on the boat there was no handout of where we were going, though there was a daily schedule on the whiteboard. We had never been sailing or on a cruise before and didn't know what to expect. The boat is beautiful and they raised the sails as often as they could. Plenty of seating both in the front and the back. Also we ALL took the motion sickness pills and were all fine, save for one day in which we all struggled in the morning because of very choppy seas. But other than that, totally fine! Food was excellent! I'm both a vegetarian AND picky and George made me incredible things. On the first day I mentioned that I didn't like eggs (not a vegan, just picky) and after that, without saying a WORD, I never got a dish with eggs, not even a salad! The sauces were especially delicious, and I was so grateful that they stocked up on some soya for me and the other vegetarian. There is also Rumaggeddon at 4pm, with special recipe rum punch and snacks. Definitely looked forward to that every day! The locations we went to were beautiful. White sandy beaches, fun local bars, and some incredible snorkeling. It was so relaxing! When we anchored, there was a rope swing, and access to kayaks, snorkeling, and paddleboarding. Did I mention a ROPE SWING? At night, they would turn off the lights so we could stargaze. The boat had a cooler of all-you-can-drink sodas and beers, with unlimited wine as well. We also only visited ONE island where you had to pay for an excursion (which was only $30), so everything really is included in the price. But really, the most amazing part of the whole trip was the staff. Captain Phillip was great. He let my boyfriend steer the ship and taught him about sailing, and ate every meal with us. King gave a comedy show (indescribable!). And then there's Bolo. Oh, Bolo, I miss you every day! Our steward was INCREDIBLE. So attentive to our every need, made our rooms look great every day, and just generally lovely and wonderful and a joy to be around. King made a necklace for one of the passengers as a gift! And they gave us all a map signed by them at the end, as a souvenir. Our trip had only 11 people and by the end we were all exchanging Facebook accounts and email addresses. It's such an intimate and lovely experience to travel with such a small group from all over the world and see such amazing places. We ranged in age from 17 to mid-50s (we're early 30s). Finally, a shoutout to Monja, the local contact in Grenada. She was so fun and helpful and even invited us to a Grenadian Hashing (google Hash House Harriers). We tried to make it but were too late, alas, but it looked like fun. She made us feel so welcome on her adopted home! In sum, best vacation ever. GO GO GO. We never do the same trip twice but oh man, we are SO doing this again with a different itinerary! Read Less

Excellent, superb, the best....it's rare indeed to have an experience that so exceeds every expectation that there isn't a superlative fine enough to do it justice. Wanting a very special vacation to celebrate our 40th anniversary, we finally decided to ship-out with Island Windjammers for the week. We selected Diamant precisely because she is small allowing for a cruise that would be more intimate with the sea, but affording a level of style, service and comfort we wanted for this special week. The shipboard experience was beyond what you would experience in the finest hotel. We were wonderfully cared for from the moment we stepped on deck in St. George's, Grenada to the moment we stepped off. Diamant is a beautiful lady extremely very well maintained. Our safety was at every moment assured by an ever vigilant and experienced captain and crew who also assured we enjoyed every moment of the cruise. The itinerary was as advertised. We visited interesting islands, explored local towns, swam and snorkeled in the clear, warm eastern Caribbean, and spent some lovely idyllic time just sitting on deck watching Diamant sail. Cabin 5 was terrific. Surprisingly roomy given Diamant's size with plenty of storage space. The head/shower was efficiently designed with all the comforts of home. The food was the best, including two fish caught by the chef while we were underway (can’t get fresher than that!!). We are already looking at the Diamant’s future sailing schedule. Read Less

Just returned from the Island Windjammer’s Diamant Twelve Day Exploration, sailing from Grenada to St. Lucia and back. What a fun trip! “Little diamond” Diamant is a 101 foot double masted schooner that carries 12 passengers and a crew of 5. She is well maintained and very comfortable. Each cabin has individual controlled a/c, separate bath and shower. We were in cabin 4 which had two larges drawers under the bottom bunk, space for hanging clothes, three storage shelves, and ample storage in the bathroom. It is recommended you pack lightly and use soft luggage for easy storage. The food was excellent with a variety of breakfast entrees, seafood, chicken, pork, pastas, salads, soups, local fruits, awesome desserts including homemade ice cream, great afternoon snacks, and the infamous Rumaggedon aka rum punch. There was a cooler filled with soft drinks and beer as well as coffee and tea available throughout the day. Gained five pounds thanks to Chef Barney. The crew as attentive and safety conscious. I came home “spoiled.” The itinerary offered something for everyone – island tours, pristine beaches, snorkeling, swimming with the turtles, swimming off the ship, limin’ with new and old friends, a little shopping, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, and a lot of relaxing. Twelve days of total bliss. We’ll be back! Read Less

We had an excellent time on our Island Windjammer Cruise in Grenada and the Grenadines. The crew was fabulous: Professional, friendly and fun. When they weren't watching out for our safety, or growing our waistlines, they were playing dominoes with us or otherwise enjoying our antics. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. I liked to get up early and enjoy every moment of our morning sails. Bolo, the steward, was never daunted by the sea swells as he delivered my 3 morning cups of coffee to the rolling bow. The itinerary was wonderful...it included a variety of experiences from an evening with a steel drum band, a BBQ and bonfire on the beach, snorkeling with turtles, exploring beautiful sandy beaches, opportunities to explored islands, and a kite-boarding show on a conch-shell made bar at Happy Hour on Happy Island. And I can't omit Rummageddon- sumptuous snacks with a rum punch-du-jour every afternoon! The rooms were clean and air conditioned. Each cabin has it's own bathroom with shower. They are small but the intimacy of the sailing ships and the anchorages they can access make this type of trip more attractive to me than Cruise Line cruise. For perspective, my background is bareboat sailboat charters as opposed to Cruise ships, and the room size, A/C, flush toilets and SERVICE compare favorably to a sailboat charter and made this trip a fabulous memory. We truly didn't want to disembark and hope to return next year for a longer cruise. Read Less

This was the first cruise that either my husband or I have ever been on. After booking the trip over 14 months in advance, we counted the days to our vacation through the cold and bleak Pennsylvania winter of 2013-2014. We were ready for sun and relaxation when we arrived in Grenada. We were not disappointed. We spent the entire day before boarding the Diamant touring Grenada with a local guide named Mandoo, I highly recommend this tour with him. Please see my review on TripAdvisor for more information. The boarding procedure, like everything else with Island Windjammers (IWJ) was well organized and laid-back. After processing passports and the like, we were on the ship and under sail in no time at all. Captain Luuck was more than anyone could have hoped for in a captain. Affable, knowledgeable and capable, he and his crew made us feel very welcome on the well-maintained and beautiful Diamant. He joined us each evening for dinner and graciously allowed us on his bridge to ask questions that I'm sure he's answered a hundred times before. He and his crew made us feel like family. Chef Barney presented us with 5-star quality meals three times each day along with a snack at 4:30. Most of the lunches and evening meals showcased traditional ingredients and preparations. The man works wonders in that tiny galley! Brandon, the Chief Steward, provided short history and cultural lessons in the form of stories during Rumageddon - the 4:30 rum punch and snack time held in the salon or the aft dining area where passengers would gather and recount the day's events. Watch out for the paddle! Steel-o (Troy), Steven, and Marlon worked hard to make sure that we landlubbers remained safe and comfortable at all times. I don't think they ever stop working. We also had the pleasure of sailing with Captain Simon who normally sails the Sagitta, but was learning this route. This man had us rolling in laughter the entire cruise. Although we didn't want to sleep, with the gentle rocking of the boat, the fresh sea air, and bellies filled with that night's dinner fare, we eventually had to succumb. Retiring to our clean, comfortable and air-conditioned cabin we slept well in the anticipation of the next day's adventure. We found that the pace was perfect and just what we needed. There were enough activities both aboard and on shore to keep us occupied each day but not so many that you were overwhelmed with choices. You could do as much or as little as you wished. Captain Luuck, the crew, and IWJ in general have many friends in this part of the world and because of this we met wonderful and sometimes very colorful local people at each stop. Tim at Chatham Bay on Union Island and Janti on Happy Island come to mind quickly. The Diamant felt like home for the days we spent on her and though we were sad to leave her, we were excited for those boarding her the next day. Oh the adventures that awaited them! Thanks to Captain Luuck, Troy, Steven, Marlon, Brandon, and Captain Simon, we each left a piece of our heart sailing on the Diamant in the Caribbean.   Read Less

First time for us (man & wife) taking a cruise, we were wow'd every single day - getting to small places big ships don't/can't go, being flexible enough to proceed under sail (with ample power assist if chosen) rather than always under power, swimming off the side of the ship (100'+ long), getting to know crew and fellow vacationers (crew of 6, + 6 staterooms which were fully booked, so 12 passengers), snorkeling in bays and coves if you wanted to, bask if you didn't. Great, great food but not a glutton's thing, more like fresh island fruit at every meal, differing main course selections mostly with island flair, rum punch along with afternoon hors d'oeuvres daily, included in the price is all the beer/wine you want to pack away (but except for one "Culture Walk" evening [read bar crawl], I didn't see a single passenger appear to be under the influence). Plenty of sodas, water, juice, of course. We worried about June "off season" & were met with almost perfect weather (one rainstorm all week, and that was short), not too hot, and with a choice daily of swimming here, walking there, sleeping in if you like - they'll launch the dinghy for just you if you want to go separate, but the attitude of all the folks on the trip was such that we all quickly became friends - no cliques formed, no cross word heard for a week - by anyone! Can I give it 6's on a scale of 0-to-5? p.s. You don't need to deal in Eastern Caribbean Currency, since everywhere takes U.S. dollars - just arm yourself with lots and lots of ones and fives and tens, since there are places that will struggle to break a $20. Exchange rate is 2.71:1 EC to US, and you should bargain in the local places to get initial prices lowered. p.p.s. If you're looking to shop at fancy places in port, get your money's worth in calories at the midnight buffet, gamble in the casino, watch a floor show, or wear something other than a bathing suit and t-shirt on most days, this is not the one for you. Take one Hawaiian shirt for the fanciest dinner they have, leave the long pants at home, take loads of sunscreen & reasonable amounts of insect repellent, and expect to enjoy!! p.p.p.s. I rated entertainment below 5, since "entertainment" is not part of the concept - that said, I rated it pretty high because I didn't want to be entertained. Read Less

Friday, 06Aug2010: Travel Day (RDU-MIA-SJU-GND): Finally time to head to the Caribbean again to sail on a Tall Ship!! Traveled to Grenada (all day 6am to 9:03pm) and was met by the Island Windjammers driver at the airport. He took us to the Allamanda hotel in St George's. Checked in and meet up with friends, visited for awhile, took a quick walk on the beach, and then headed to room for sleep just after midnight. Saturday, 07Aug2010: Grenada: Awoke at 7am ready to start my vacation!! Headed to breakfast near hotel then went to grocery store to buy booze. A few went deep sea fishing. Just as we got back to the hotel it started to rain. By 10:30am we were ready to leave the hotel and decided to walk down to Garfield's Beach Bar. We made it to Garfield's just as the rain continued so we were forced to drink Carib and entertain Chester the bartender. Weather finally cleared so we headed to the beach (Grand Anse Beach) and floated in the water, enjoying the Caribbean Sea. At 7:30pm we headed to town to have dinner at the Nutmeg Restaurant. Alison our final team member had arrived while we were at dinner. We visited with her for awhile and then headed to bed about 11:30pm. Sunday, 08Aug2010: Grenada - Board S/V Diamant: What a way to spend my birthday, in the Grenadines getting ready to finally board the S/V Diamant. Woke up about 7:30am and went to Gibson's (again across the street) for a nice breakfast. Bruce and Maryse headed out for an Island tour and the rest of us headed to the beach. About 11am we decided to walk down to Garfield's Beach Bar for a few drinks and a few birthday shots! We headed to Port Louis about 1pm and got our first look at the Diamant. What a beautiful small ship, she is a 101 ft schooner with tons of character. About 4:45pm we headed over to the Diamant. The check in procedure was a breeze and we were all shown our Cabins within an hour of boarding. The cabins were great; each different with their own little touches. There is decent storage space in each but don't bring a lot and don't bring hard sided suitcases (there is no place for them); duffle bags or backpacks are the way to go. You're on a boat so the cabin and bathrooms are small but the layout is great in each. The ship has its own water purification system and the cabins have water bottles for each passenger (that stay with the ship). Near the back of the ship were two coolers that were kept stocked with sodas and BEER (we had Heineken, Carib and Stag) plus you had access to a house red and white wine at all times. Once we all settled in we just walked around the ship, chatted and soaked in the fact that we were back on a Tall Ship. We had dinner around 7:30pm and the crew even had a birthday cake for me! We spend the evening relaxing, talking and drinking beer and cocktails. Monday, 09Aug2010: Grenada - Carriacou - Union Island: Ship set sail about 5am; it was great sleeping to the sway of the ship! Made it to Carriacou about 10am and had our safety drill. We stayed on the ship for the morning, had lunch, and then headed to Anse La Roche Beach for the day. No one else around and no beach bars so the crew brought us a cooler with beer (and other drinks). There was lots of Technical Diving and we drank an insane amount of beer (between all 9 of us). I think by the end of the afternoon there were concerns on beer and ice stock ? Once we were all feeling pretty "happy" a game was created by John - "Redneck Bowling"; this provided us hours of entertainment! And yes we did take all the empties back to the ship, left only footprints. Back to ship around 5pm; we were all tipsy, a little sun burned, and ready for Rum Swizzles and Snacks. Eventually we all cleaned up and had dinner on the ship. We relocated to Chatum Bay near Union Island for the night. Stayed on ship for evening, there were tons of stars out, so amazing. Fell asleep on deck just staring at the stars. Tuesday 10Aug2010: Union Island - Bequia: Woke up at 7am and made my way to the deck for the morning sail. Was wonderful hearing Amazing Grace played while the sails were raised, has been way to long. As we made our way to Bequia we passed Moon Hole. Once we got to the main harbor in Bequia had a nice hot breakfast and then into town around 10am. We went into a few shops, bought t-shirts, and Kim got a really cool map of the Caribbean in one of the book stores, also visited the ATM. Headed over to the Whaleboner bar but they were closed so we had a few beers at the Magnolia bar to cool off. Back to ship around noon for lunch (it is amazing what Boston created in that tiny kitchen). We all stayed on the ship for the afternoon. There was reading, relaxing, journal writing and some drinking of adult beverages. Bruce and John fished off the ship. The ship's entertainment system has a connection for MP3 players so you can play your music thru the ship speakers; we had a Jimmy Buffett type of afternoon. Broke out the rope swing and jumped off the ship for some swimming/floating next to the ship. The Diamant has an awesome ladder for getting back on the ship after swimming, very easy to navigate and. We had a great relaxing afternoon with no agenda which was so nice. After swim we had Rum Swizzles, Wine, and Cheese; Boston also cooked up the Tuna that Bruce brought on board. We cleaned up, watched an awesome sunset, and then headed to Mac's Pizzeria for Dinner. Back to ship about 9:30pm. Some to bed early, others up front star gazing. Wednesday, 11Aug2010: Bequia - Tobago Cays - Mayreau: Early sail to Tobago Cays for a day on the beach. Another beautiful, sunny day and the Tobago Cays are breathtaking. We ended up anchoring near one of the many beautiful small islands and then took the dingy to a great little beach with picnic tables. Spent morning walking beach, taking pictures, laying out to perfect the tan, and working on our "technical diving" skills with our well stocked cooler. The crew brought us a picnic lunch ashore that was delicious. About 1:30pm we headed back to ship and then several of us headed over to Turtle Island to swim/snorkel with the Turtles (the ship provides snorkel gear for use at the beginning of the week, no extra charge). Some did a walk on the island and saw several big iguanas and land turtles. Headed back to ship for Rum Swizzles and Snacks and a few headed to "Johnny Depp" island which is where one of the scenes from the first movies was filmed. Once everyone back on ship we sailed to Mayreau. Had dinner and then we all changed into our "TGDT" shirts that Ester made and Kim provided glow-stick necklaces and bracelets. This was so we could keep track of the group during our "cultural walk" of Mayrue. Headed into town about 8:30pm and walked up the long steep hill to the top. Our plan was to "drink" our way down. We ended up visiting 3 bars with the final one being "Dennis's Hideaway". Back to ship about 11:30pm. Another great day!! Thursday, 12Aug2010: Mayreau- Salt Whistle Bay - Union Island - Happy Island - Carriacou: After breakfast picked up anchor and moved to other side of island to visit Salt Whistle Bay, which is a beautiful beach. We spent the morning on the beach just relaxing and floating on the blue rafts. Some hiked around and a few passengers walked over the hill to town. Back to ship for lunch then we sailed to Union Island. We went into town for quick look around and to visit the ATM. The entire group ended up at the dock at the same time to catch the dingy around 2pm. Instead of heading back to the ship we went straight to "Happy Island". They serve food if his wife is around, otherwise you just receive drinks. The rum punch on Happy Island is AWESOME and will make you very happy! Around 4:30pm we were not ready to leave, so the crew brought snacks to us and we continued to party on the island. We had so much fun! Rain clouds were around and there were a few rainbows (it could not get any more perfect). Somewhere around 6pm we all decided to head back to the ship as it looked like serious rain was coming. We packed the passengers and crew on the dingy for the very short ride back to the ship and wouldn't you know it, the heavens opened up and it started to rain in earnest. Once back on the ship we headed into the indoor saloon area, Kim attached her iPod to the stereo and became our DJ for the night. Eventually all the passengers and all the crew were on deck dancing to disco music. I can't tell you how much fun we had joking around and dancing in the rain. We eventually dressed for our "tacky Hawaiian shirt" night which we planned ahead of time. At some point (time blurs some) we did a quick move to Carriacou to anchor for the nigh. All through dinner (and after) the music, singing and dancing continued. Eventually people headed to bed but there may have been some late night swimming off the side of the ship ? What an absolutely wonderful day and night. Friday, 13Aug2010: Carriacou - Sandy Island - Grenada: Up around 8am. Most of us stayed on the ship to recover and napped through the morning. I believe Bruce and Maryse were the only ones who went over to Sandy Island. After lunch we started the trip back to Grenada. On the way back the Capt. shut off the engines and we truly sailed for about 2 hours. It was absolutely amazing. Bruch continued to fish and we just hung on the back on the ship just enjoying the sail. Brandon made his special "drink" for Snacks (think pina colada). Just to let you know how much fun we had, we were planning our next trip before we even docked and were e-mailing Island Windjammers about available dates. We ended up docking in Grenada about 5:30-6pm. Once docked, we cleaned up and proceeded with our "Pirate themed" night; which included eye patches, bandanas and tattoos. We did a quick check out with Natalie to settle our ship accounts and they provided us with a map of our weeks sail with the route plotted and signatures from all the crew. We had a nice Captains' dinner and all the crew came out so we could take pictures with them. We eventually ended up drinking (trying to finish off the booze we brought aboard) and playing stupid drinking games Saturday, 14Aug2010: Grenada: Awoke around 7:15am to see Kim off as she had an early flight. After breakfast, packed and slowly got ready to leave the ship (you have until noon). Spent the morning on the ship and explored the marina. Bentley picked us up at noon and took us to the Allamanda. Checked in then headed across the street for pizza. We headed to Garfield's Beach Bar around 5pm for a few final beers and then meet at 7pm for Dinner. We had a nice time chatting about the week and re-living all the wonderful times we had. Many Rum Swizzles were consumed (again). Left around 11pm but don't think I ended up in bed until 2am. Sunday, 15Aug2010: Travel Day: Up at 4:30am for Taxi came at 5AM for a 6:55 am flight. GND to SNJ to MIA to RDU. All I can say is WOW, what an absolutely fantastic vacation and I can't wait to be back on the Diamant. I am 99% certain that this will be a "yearly" pilgrimage for me and many of my friends. I cannot say enough positive things about Island Windjammers. If you are looking for a truly relaxing, unique, no frills vacation to small ports that those big "foo foo" ships could never get to, this is the trip for you. It does not matter if your single, a couple, going with friends, or going by yourself - you will have a wonderful time. Just be open to adventure and making your own fun! If there is something you want to do ask and the crew will do their best to accommodate you. When I got back home I made a positive vs. negative list and the positive list had about 12 items and there was only 1 suggestion (not really a negative). The ship is beautiful, well maintained, with a great crew. The individual room air conditioning is a bonus as well as the provided cabin water bottles. Ice was always available along with fresh water. Snorkel gear is included along with unlimited filtered water, sodas, juices, select beers and a house red and white wine. Fare also included crew tip (but I left more because they so deserved it), the night on board prior to sailing, and all port charges. This was a great intimate experience with a small passenger group for an amazing price. The captain was very flexible and willing to change plans (within reason if all agreed). It was very nice being docked on arrival and departure. I heard rumors that more sails were going to be added and that air conditioning was being considered for the indoor saloon area (this was my one suggestion). I would not hesitate in recommending this vacation to anyone with an adventurous, laid back soul. Get a couple of friends (or family) together and book tomorrow at www.islandwindjammers.com.
