Don’t let the heat stop you from taking a Windjammer cruise. The Caribbean is warm all year long. In the summer the humidity is higher. While you are on the water the breezes will help keep you cool. Did I mention the air-conditioned cabins? The dining room is under constant cool air too!
The new owners are committed to keeping her in top shape.
Getting to Grenada has just been made easier with weekly flights from Atlanta now available on Delta. American Airlines has daily service from Miami in the middle of the day!
The Windjammer Mandalay is about 97 years old. Her staterooms and decks are all new as are many of the engine components. She is in the best of shape since being taken over by Sail Windjammer. Cruises include all meals, rum-swizzle time with snacks, authentic entertainment and impromptu fun. Not included are: Vegas Style shows, casinos, shopping malls and long lines to get off the ship. Jimmy Buffet music and total relaxation are the norm. Shoes are not required for dinner.
With the great fare and low airfares from American Airlines and a few others, this makes for a great getaway. Call Tropical Sails Corp to book the best cabin available.
TYPICAL JAMMIN DAY ON MANDALAY CRUISES:

The day begins with the legendary greeting: Good Morning Capt. Listen to the captain as he delivers an entertaining overview of the islands and region. Local lore, history, jokes, tall tales are all part of the fun.
9:30am- Daytime Activities Begin
Almost every island we visit offers beach and water sports activities, including snorkelling, and even swimming from the ship. If we’re on a deserted island, grab your beach towel, sunscreen, a good book, and your favorite floatie and head for the beach. You can choose from various Island excursions each day. Some last a few hours, some a full day (lunch is included). If you choose to, you can just relax on the top deck, read a book with a drink in hand and enjoy the solitude.
