Anyone found a cruise comparable to Windjammer Barefoot Cruise experience?

Jump to last reply

I took a Windjammer Barefoot Cruise back in the 90's that sailed around the BVI's and I loved it. I always meant to take one again. I loved being able to dive off the boat right into the water after several rum swizzles! Unforturnately, I learned a couple of years ago that once the founder died, the fighting among his heirs over the running of the company managed to run it out of business.

I can't find anything comparable. I've looked at the Star Clipper Line, but my husband refuses to wear slacks to dinner. Also, he gets a little sea sick so a barefoot charter is out of the question. Our jobs require that we wear business attire during the week so we like our vacations to be as casual as possible. The last couple of times to the Caribbean we have stayed at Gallows Point Resort as Cruz Bay, St John, USVI. I love it but want to get out on the water more. The trips to Virgin Gorda and Jost just are not enough!.

Anyone have any suggestions?
