Curacao / Special Interests / Sailing Cruise

By Sara Macefield

Calling at a Caribbean island on a large yacht can bring a totally different experience, especially as these smaller vessels can moor at smaller bays and ports that larger cruise ships cannot squeeze into.

For those wanting a more authentic sailing-type cruise experience, see below:

Sea Cloud Cruises - The two beautiful windjammers of this upscale German cruise line give an authentic flavour of riding the waves under the power of sail, but without compromising on luxury or service.

Windstar Cruises - This US cruise line has three striking tall ships. They may be powered by engines rather than sails, but they still look good and offer elegance and style aplenty, along with luxurious surroundings, fine dining and attentive service.
