Diamant Cruise Review by inthewatersomewhere
- Sail Date: January 2018
- Destination: Western Caribbean
The cabin was compact but very adequate. We had chosen the room with 2 beds side by side rather than the bunkbeds the other cabins had. The bathroom was great, best we've had in a smaller ship.
We were served appetizers and drinks right away and the food never stopped coming for the rest of the trip. Barney, the chef was amazing. The meals were varied and always included fresh vegetables and /or salads and fruit. One of my favorites was a bbq he prepared on one of our beach excursions - the best ribs I've ever had.
Can't say enough good things about the crew. The captain, Danny and the others were delightful. Friendly and helpful, they really made the trip. Danny explained the next day's itinerary every evening at dinner. If any of us had specific preferences he and the crew made sure they were accommodated.
Every day was spent with at least a couple hours of sailing before we would anchor at a new island. We were able to swim off the boat, snorkel from the beaches, visit the town to shop or explore, tour local museums, forts, waterfalls and botanical gardens. Danny gave us a little history of each place we visited and often went with us on our outings. He has a personal relationship with many of the locals which made the experiences that much nicer.
If you enjoy sailing ( and we really sailed!) and prefer an intimate, personal trip rather than
being one of hundreds or even thousands on a humongous cruise liner, we totally recommend Island Windjammers.
