When do we find out which islands we're going to visit? The literature said we visit "a selection" of islands listed. Do we get a vote?

It's a surprise!! rolling rolling The Captain will tell you the plan for the day, etc. as a lot depends on the weather(winds, seas). Occasionally the Captain might give you an option, and the passengers get to vote on where they want to go. Just go with the flow, and you'll have a wonderful time.

There is a white board in the salon that lets everyone know the "island of the day" and excursions that you can sign up to do if you wish. I can't wait to be back aboard!

Anyone interested in meeting up Saturday for a pre-sail ice breaker? cocktail

When you first come aboard, play close attention to the Captain and Operations Manager's introduction talks. One of them will tell you WHEN the Island of the Day will be discussed. Usually it is the afternoon before you arrive (ie. "Tomorrow we will be at ___, and ...) and the various tours, activities, points of interest will be described and the tour sign up boards will be out. Afterwards (after dinner??) the whiteboard will be updated with information about the next day's activities.

TIP: For trip journals and sorting those 100s of vacation photos: Take a photo of the white board at the beginning of each day ... it will help you keep track of where you were.

We did a Barefoot Windjammer some years ago and that was always helpful and a good way to start the day's photos.javascript:emoticon('photo')
