If Pirates of the Caribbean stirred the desire to run away to sea, consider a sailing ship cruise. If you have sailed before, you know what to expect. If you donít have your sea legs, you will either love sailing or not. (Note: Sailing on a genuine masted sailing ship in rough seas is not for those prone to motion sickness.) With the exception of powered luxury sailing ship cruises, donít expect glitz, glamour or large scale entertainment on sailing ships. Sailing is all about camaraderie and the experience.
Like other cruises, sailing ship voyages run the gamut from a no-frills to laid-back luxury. A hands-on working cruise on a former fishing schooner (Maple Leaf Adventures - (www.mapleleafadventures.com) to barefoot-sleep-on-deck-if-you wish Caribbean cruises (Windjammer Barefoot Cruises - www.windjammer.com) are examples of typical no-frills sailing fun. On the luxury side of sailing, Sea Cloud Cruises (www.seacloud.com), Star Clipper Cruises (www.staclippers.com) and Windstar Cruises (www.windstarcruises.com) are popular masted sailing ships with plenty of perks and no work.
