After taking an Island Windjammers cruise, it would be hard to return to big-ship cruising in the Caribbean. We were able to drop anchor off small, secluded coves on tiny islands in the French West Indies. There were no loudspeaker announcements, no cruise director trying to convince you to play silly games, no long lines to stand in, no need to dress up beyond shorts and T-shirts, no pressure of any kind. You do need to be able to entertain yourself, though, since there are no organized shows or performers (one passenger did play a few songs with his guitar). I would estimate that half the passengers on ship (just 24 in all) were in bed or their cabins by 9:30 p.m. while the other half partied until midnight or later – alcohol is included in the fare and there was plenty of imbibing, but it didn’t get overly noisy or obnoxious at night. Everyone seemed to have a good time and I heard few if any complaints about the food or service the entire voyage. It was the perfect relaxing vacation.

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you.

Excellent travel company. There were only 4 ladies traveling however, throughout the trip, we felt very safe and in good hands. Excellent accommodation, vehicles, sightseeing, guides and their followup care. The driver was very patient with our none ending shopping request. Would recommend to all

        About Island Windjammers

        Born in 2009 after the demise of Windjammer Barefoot Cruises, Island Windjammers was started by former Barefoot passengers who wanted to revive a similar type of casual, relaxed Caribbean cruising. Emphasis is on fun and spending your time onboard as you please.

        WHO: 

        Island Windjammers cruises are best suited for relatively affluent adults in their 30s to 60s, who prefer small ship cruising and uncrowded ports to big ships that offer multiple activities, restaurants and entertainments. They’re also for people who are most comfortable in T-shirts, shorts, and either sandals or bare feet onboard.

        WHAT: 

        Beyond offering a few optional organized tours, Island Windjammers leaves your activities largely up to you. No one will look askance if you spend the entire day sunning or reading on the ship, stay up late or go to bed early, party hearty or find a quiet chair on deck to watch the world go by. 

        WHERE: 

        Island Windjammers cruises exclusively in the Caribbean, offering four possible itineraries: the Windward Islands, the Leeward Islands, the British Virgin Islands, and the French West Indies, which together cover much of the eastern and southern Caribbean. Home ports include Grenada, St. Lucia, Tortola and St. Maarten.

        HOW: 

        Two motor sailing ships – the 12-passenger Diamant and the 24-passenger Sagitta – make up the current fleet. A third tall ship, the 30-passenger Vela, will be introduced in early 2016. Itineraries are relaxed, visiting islands for a day or two at a time, allowing plenty of time for touring, swimming, and snorkeling. Cabins are cozy but comfortable and most have their own bathrooms and portholes.

        WHY: 

        Island Windjammers cruises are for those who want to relax and have a good time in the company of relatively few fellow passengers – who you will probably all get to know (the captain may well join you for lunch or dinner in his bare feet). Wine, beer, and rum punches are complimentary and the cuisine is excellent. If you’re looking for a traditional big cruise ship experience, look elsewhere. Narrow stairs leading down to the cabins can cause problems for people with disabilities -- there are no elevators --  and choppy seas on occasion may cause problems if you’re prone to seasickness.
