Diamant Cruise Review by dmleuzzi
- Sail Date: February 2016
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
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!
