Just returned from a 14 night cruise on the Sea Cloud II (NB II as couldn't select this from the drop down list) around the Caribbean. The boat was first rate in terms of cabins and general appearance but was spoilt somewhat by the lack of choice in the restaurant, the odd combinations that made up the food and the appallingly slow service. Also if you are doing this cruise be aware that it is unlikely you will be able to land in Montserrat and that several islands have absolutely nothing open on Sundays. Having said that, you can get into the smaller ports like Bequia and Isles de Saintes. Slight con though: when the sails are up you only go with the wind and then have to spend time hacking back in the right direction under power. However, nothing beats the experience of cruising under sail on a tall ship. The cruise director has been on this ship almost forever and needs to reel in his enthusiasm on occassions as it does tend to rip through the refined atmosphere. Nice guy but regretably has a tendency to promise things and then forget...
