Polynesia (RETIRED) 273 Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Ship: Polynesia (RETIRED) 273
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago
Review SummarySome thngs I didn't mention below:
* This ship like the other Windjammers is just a dream to look at especially when you leave it anchored off an island or when you come back after a long hard but fun day in town/snorkeling etc.
* Swimming/jumping off the ship is a huge awesome bonus, it just feels like home for a week or however long you're not some darn plastic juggernaught with a skating rink or whatever.
* Windjammer doesn't generally follow a "the beverage you're about to enjoy is very hot take care" paradigm. Some activites could be a bit risky though noone got injured at all on our cruise. I have no problem with this, I just used common sense for both my and my 7 year old daughters safety and we had a blast. You will too, but if you need more hand holding, this isn't the trip for you!
* All the Windjammer first timers I talked to on this trip loved it and would do it again, this is only my 2nd time and I will do it again! I'm sure some people are dissapointed for some reason but I bet there aren't too many.

Pros: Relaxing, laissez-faire atmosphere and reality sailing in the Eastern Caribbean in a real ship :-)
Cons: Some folks in my group didn't take dramamine in time :-(
