My wife (32) and I (31) chose this cruise to go on our honeymoon. My dad and stepmom had gone on the old barefoot windjammer's and I always thought the trip sounded incredible. This company did not disappoint! The trip was extremely memorable and enjoyable and we we will cherish it for the remainder of our lives. The boat itself was gorgeous and had three main common areas with plenty of room for all 10 passengers (10 sounds crowded, but it's honestly not). The food was absolutely first class and the crew was very helpful and enjoyable, especially our captain who acted as both captain and tour guide throughout the west indies. The rooms were quaint but nice and we only really slept in them anyway. We snorkeled every day, saw sea turtles, reefs, sting rays, and even a shark! Wish we could do these sails more often. 5 stars all the way for a fun and authentic way to see the west indies. The company was great to work with too. Read Less

Smaller sailboat, personal attention, only 9 passengers, great food, beautiful beaches. That’s why I just took my 3rd trip on an Island Windjammer boat. I’ve tried all 3 sailboats in their fleet and each one has its own appeal, but the Diamant FEELS the most like a sailboat without giving up the good stuff. The cabins are small but not too small and have all mod-cons. The crew is fantastic and at the end of the cruise, if you take the time, you can get to know all of them and hear about their families and feel like you have made friends who will remember you if you go again. The food is simple but healthy and “island gourmet “. Lots of shore excursions and beaches and sailing from one island to another every day. The week goes by so fast I was so sad to have to get off. I just wanted to do it again. After all, I already had my sea legs and the start of a great tan. Highlights of the trip? Besides finding out that Andrew is now the Captain of the Diamant (Very entertaining and Very efficient), snorkeling with the tortoises and rays, walking a mile long deserted beach after snorkeling and watching for the green flash every evening with my new and old friends. It’s not a big cruise ship, it’s a family vacation, because on a small boat you get to know everyone as well as your family. It’s not a fancy dress, music in the theater cruise, it’s a relaxing, do your own thing cruise. Read Less

Island Windjammers continues to deliver! We just took our 4th trip with them and had a fabulous time. With an intimate five cabins, plus crew, this is the way to see the Caribbean up close and personal. The Diamant is able to slip in places that the big ships simply cannot go, which means more time spent snorkeling, enjoying the beach, exploring islands, etc., and no time waiting in line for excursions, meals, etc. The crew are all warm, friendly and professional and made every aspect easy and comfortable. The meals are amazing! Fresh, creative, delicious! We lead busy lives professionally, and this is the very best way for us to check out and recharge each year. It's become an absolute necessity! That is the only risk - developing an addiction to cruising with this company :-). We will be back next year, the year after that, the year after that... Read Less

We chose the Island Windjammer's Diamant for the 3rd time in 5 years as we can't find anything better! It's all about relaxing for us and just unwinding from the hustle of job and home-life. The crew of this boat put you to immediate ease and comfort ... taking care of everything you may need. Meals are fresh and excellent ... made on-board in the galley by a creative chef. Diamant, carries just 10 passengers with 5 crew ... so it is about as close to getting to a private sail as one possibly can. This sailing ship can go almost anywhere ... meaning into small coves and bays not reachable by the big ships ... meaning quiet and peace when enjoying water sports of swimming and snorkeling. We highly recommend Island Windjammers for that perfect vacation ... and we look forward to our next sail! Wonderful company and people. Read Less

This was my first time sailing. A friend encouraged me to go and vowed that once I sailed on the Diamant I would be back. She was right. I cannot wait to go again. I cannot say enough lovely things about this company's owner, the boat captain, and the crew. I had the most relaxing, delightful time. I always felt safe. Before this trip I had an irrational fear of the ocean. Now I have a love for it. While snorkeling I had a fun encounter with a ray, a big darling turtle, and more. The captain is fun, full of interesting information about the areas we sailed to as well as sailing itself, and gave this nervous first-timer absolute peace that we were in capable hands. The crew was beyond helpful and patient and fun and more than competent. The food was incredible. As good as any I have had in any of my travels! The boat and cabins were spotless and beautiful. The crew made me feel like they truly enjoyed me being there. Rare these days. It's hard to imagine any trip more relaxing than the one I experienced on the delightful Diamant. I cannot wait to sail on her again. 12 days next time! Read Less

This was one of the greatest sails we have ever had. Twelve days of being pampered and taken care of and sailing south bound from St Lucia and ending in Grenada. The crew consisted of Captain, Engineer, Chef, Steward and Bosun. Each and every one of them went out of their way 100 percent of the time to ensure that every passenger was accommodated in every way. Unbelievably fantastic level of service!! The food was excellent and plentiful. The Chef baked all his own breads and cakes and deserts!! The presentation was award winning. All of this was prepared in the tiniest of galleys. Amazing!! All this great food plus all the beer and wine and soda you wanted seven by twenty four. They encourage you to bring your own hard liquor, so there is no huge bar bill at the end of the sail. We stopped at many islands along the way to snorkel and hike and just hit the beaches .................. some of the best in the Caribbean!! I have already booked my next sail, cannot wait to go back! Read Less

I have been home for 3 days but my heart is still on the beautiful Windjammer Diamant. I will never ever forget this amazing trip from St. Lucia to Granada. I could have never imagined how very well I would be treated. The Captain Phillip and Captain in training, Andrew were the most professional seamen and also amazing humanitarians. All of the crew were the finest you could ever expect on any cruise. We visited beautiful private islands we snorkeled...swam with sea turtles, swam and played by the ship,hiked and whatever we dreamed....our Captain made it happen. My captain even made a great effort to help me discover sea glass. The sails being raised, the beautiful turquoise water, rainbows many days, delicious smells coming from the kitchen of our amazing chef.....I am at a loss for words. If you want that small...10 people...personal experience then this is the trip to take. Not a tourist trap but a special opportunity to connect with nature,reflect and have adventures you could never imagine. This was a life changing adventure for me and I hope others will grasp this amazing opportunity. Read Less

Just returned from a wonderful week on Diamant, a 101 foot long 10 passenger, crew of 5, windjammer cruise. We sailed a few hours each day, from island to island, enjoyed the best of beaches on Union Island, Bequia, Mayreau, and a number of others. Have traveled many trips to the Caribbean, and this was by far some of the most beautiful islands and beaches anywhere in the Caribbean. All meals provided were beyond expectations. The crew onboard was always ready to assist, be it with lending a hand in and out of the dingy to go ashore, filling your glass with wine, or pointing out turtles or sea creatures! Cabins were comfortable, with plenty of room for storage. Daily we would sail in the morning, swim and/or snorkel in the afternoon, with time wander on short guided hikes or through the local shops for t-shirts or souvenirs of our trip, or on island tours. Looking forward to a return to do this all again! Read Less

This was our third trip on the Diamant and our first with our two 14 year old girls. We have had nothing but unbelievable trips with Island Windjammers but we were a bit nervous with our girls since there isn’t a lot to do while sailing. Our anxiety disappeared even before we left port. All of the crew and our shipmates (another family of 5 with older children) made the trip unforgettable for our girls. The itinerary was varied enough for my wife and myself that we got to experience new beaches and destinations. The food is always fantastic and plentiful. Beverages are provided by the ship and you can bring your own as well. The accommodations are nicer than what you would expect on a sailboat. The staff are always there to help and entertain you. We got treated to a magic show and and acrobatics by Roy. Captain Luuck will regale you with his stories and travels. We just cannot say enough good things about the Diamant crew and the experience Island Windjammers provides. The key to this type of sailing experience is to go with an open mind, relax, and enjoy the company. It is a very intimate experience. If you are looking for something formal this is not the type of cruise for you. Island Windjammers has set the bar very high for us in our travel needs and we have a hard time finding a vacation any more relaxing. Read Less

Our 10th anniversary was coming up. We didn't want to sit on a beach because we live near one. We didn't want to visit a floating city either, but we wanted to see the Caribbean. I remember the Barefoot Cruise days that I dreamed about doing. A quick internet search took me to Island Windjammers. I was sold and so was my hubby. We've just arrived home yesterday from the excursion of a lifetime. My husband and I really didn't know what to expect. No matter how hard we would have tried, we could not have guessed at all the amazing moments this cruise would have. The crew was amazing with everyone always helpful to us and to each other. Even the captain would offer to fill our coffee cups when he was getting his morning brew! No smiles were spared! The range of activities - island hopping from the tiniest (Umbrella Island and Happy Island) to touring Bequia, from snorkeling to island tours, and even just relaxing aboard the ship with a rum punch and a good book - everything was amazing. From the mast in the full moon to catching a barracuda off the ship to watching a sting ray lazily swim along the shore in the Tobago Cays, there was a surprise around every corner. We are already trying to figure out when we can go again and which of our friends can join us! Read Less
