I have been on Princess, Carnival, and Holland cruise lines. Am looking for something a little different. The bare foot cruises look interesting. Have not seen any discussion on these. They seem as if they would be fun but something that may get boring after a few days because of their limitations. Would appreciate the experiences of anyone that has been on one and their recommendations.

If you enjoy a very casual laid back vacation, where lounging in the sun, enjoying whatever the port has to offer, watching the sunset and partying with new friends, with no need to dress for dinner or stand on any kind of formality appeals to you, than you will enjoy the experience. If, on the other hand, you enjoy the casino, productions shows, luxurious amenities and formal nights than this would not be a good choice.

Thanks NancyN

Sounds like my kind of vacation. I don't need the so called Vegas production shows. When I want to gamble I go to Vegas and it never made any sense to me to pack all of the dress up cloths just to have dinner or sit in a dark show room. As far as the luxurious amenities I do enjoy having a beer or two, morning coffee, a clean beach towel and a good view of the ocean and stars.

Hi RIDGID....I've been thinking of Windjammer my self for next year....I've done plenty of the normal cruiseships and also want something different...the thought of not dressing up, haning out on the ship, cutting loose and making our own fun sounds like a good time. I think I'm going to go for it. Let me know if you go and what you thought.

I have sailed on the Legacy and the Fantome (now lost at sea) and would do it again. They are fun, but it really depends on who is on the ship with you. I had a small group of agents on the Legacy when the captain fired the hotel director and put him off in the BVI. When we arrived back in PR at the end of the cruise, the ship was met by a drug swat team. They brought dogs aboard and worked the entire ship looking for drugs. It was amazing. When we were finally tendered into port, it was obvious all of our luggage had been searched. The luggage went on the first tender, which brought back the swat team and dogs.

There was great speculation as to why this occurred, but most folks thought it was the revenge of the canned hotel director. All in all, it was pretty exciting.

I would make sure that you cruised with at least another couple or small group.
