I booked a little early. I was starting to worry about the flights and hotels being filled up. As always I will be looking forward to your feedback. Havent done the ST Lucia/Marigot bay trip . Pulled into Marigot Bay on Diamant, so I know what that happening there. Enjoy your time. As you told me watch out for the popcorn machine. I wonder what other new things/toys they will have on the Vela for you.

agree with Julie. I see it now that I was told it is on the confirmation. My 2 cent is should be easier to find. Also, Sea Shanty should be a "hot link" too.
Sea Shanty is a great tool for both newbies and old time sailors. I dont see many really using it. Again that's my 2 cent. Lastly, thanks, you all really do a great job.


Because this thread is again active, I thought it would be a good moment to point out that we heard your concerns and addressed it.

As of a few months ago, ALL the information you might need to prepare for your cruise - before, during and after booking - can be found on the Island Windjammers main webpage. (Islandwindjammers.com) Simply look for the tab that says "Plan your Cruise"; the dropdown menu includes
    Planning Guide,
    Sailing Guide, Hotels (for recommendations in all IWJ ports),
    Transfers (so you can pre-arrange your ride from Airport to hotel and ship in St Lucia and Grenada),
    Boarding Instructions and
    Trip Insurance.


A link to your customized pre-cruise questionnaire including your passport info is available via hotlink in your cruise booking welcome email. You don't need to print it, save it to your harddrive or anything special. Simply open the link, click the "pencil" icon and fill in the requested information and when done, click "save" at the bottom. It will be securely transmitted to our office.
