     While winter temperatures are coming (I saw snow on Sunday....), our two girls are nice and warm down South! The Liberty Star had a couple of upgrades put in, and is now sailing through the Bahamas, on her way to the BVI's and her first cruise of the year! These guys even had time to catch lunch yesterday....

Two adventurers take on the Schooner Liberty Clipper in the Bahamas. Windjammer Vacation cruise off the bucket list now!

At the end of one of our most memorable weeks ever. The sailing, the snorkeling, the relaxing, the adventure, the passengers, the crew, the beautiful Liberty Clipper----We can't say enough how much we appreciate the opportunity to be here and experience it all for the Windjammer Cruise of a lifetime. Cheers especially to the amazing crew , who worked so hard to make sure all of us passengers were not only well taken care of-but that we could also get out, explore, and cross more dreams off our bucket lists, and make memories for ourselves that will truly last us our lives. 

 

 

 God bless you guys and this beautiful ship!

Great chemistry, friends, food and more aboard my windjammer sailing adventure in the Bahamas

Great chemistry, friends, food and more aboard my windjammer sailing adventure in the Bahamas

What a wonderful 6 days aboard the windjammer Liberty Clipper! Having never sailed before, we knew we were about to embark on a truly remarkable experience, however were not prepared for how much more special the crew was to make our trip sailing the Bahamas.  Chris, John, Sean, Clint, Jan, Jason, Maggie, Amanda and Mike- a truly spectacular crew, their professionalism and team chemistry was impeccable, yet their courtesy and involvement with each of the passengers made us feel like part of the family.  We will miss them all-until we come back!

Thank you all for a wonderful voyage! :)

Our fantastic experience cruising the Caribbean and Eleuthera on a 18th Century Clipper Ship!

Our fantastic experience cruising the Caribbean and Eleuthera on a 18th Century Clipper Ship!

My husband and I didn't know what to expect, but we were not let down.  The crew was very professional while being fun and informative.  It is amazing how hard they work and never complain.  They work like a well oiled machine.  We were lucky to have been on the ship when they had two little puppies they got from a shelter.  They were so loving, cute, fun and helped us with our sadness of leaving our 3 puppies at home.

All the places in the Bahamas we went were wonderful, and we just chilled out.

What a great "family" crew.  We love you all.  I hope to see you again.

Thank you! Each and every crew member was professional and delightful to cruise in the Bahamas with...the food was exceptional-much thanks to the galley Jason and Sean.  The entire adventure sailing the Exuma islands was more than I expected!! I plan to experience a Liberty Fleet tall ship again.

Memories and fellowship and sand and sea and SAILING!! Loved the sailing!!

Sailing and Exploring the Caribbean Islands aboard a beautiful classically rigged Tall Ship!

Sailing and Exploring the Caribbean Islands aboard a beautiful classically rigged Tall Ship!

We have always wanted to sail around the islands of the Bahamas and go into the coves where others don't go.  This trip was excellent!  The crew worked together and provided whatever was asked.  The first night we met up some of the crew for a fish fry- had the "conch" experience. From there on, the trip on the Liberty Clipper was nothing but wonderful.

Thanks so much <3

An outstanding sailing adventure in the Caribbean aboard a Tall Ship

An outstanding sailing adventure in the Caribbean aboard a Tall Ship

The whole experience was better than I hand hoped for.  Everything was outstanding.  The crew made the adventure enjoyable, fun, entertaining, and certainly tasty,  I can honestly say their was nothing negative about this trip.  The Liberty Clipper, the crew and the other guests.  We plan on sailing the British Virgin Islands on the Liberty Star next year and we will point anybody that is interested in tall ship cruises to Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships.

Thanks so much,

A beautiful windjammer voyage in the Caribbean

A beautiful windjammer voyage in the Caribbean

From Duluth,

The ship looked beautiful when we first saw it and the 6 day voyage was just as beautiful.  The crew was also great, including the chef who made us tons of food each day.  We had lots of fun and enjoyed the off ship islands.  We would do it again on Liberty Clipper!

A wonderful windjammer cruise in the beautiful Bahamas

A wonderful windjammer cruise in the beautiful Bahamas

We had a GREAT TIME!!

It is so nice to be sailing the Exuma Islands and enjoying the salty fresh air.  The crew was wonderful, polite, and fun.  The water, the water was the blue that is so pleasing and soothing to the soul.  We went to some wonderful beaches like the ones you see on screen savers and travel shows.  The food was great!!! Then there is the Liberty Clipper, what a wonderful ship to take us on this wonderful experience sailing the Bahamas!

Former Captain takes on a Tall Ship sailing cruise in the Bahamas!

Captain Chris runs the ship with an easy going authority of one who knows his ship.  He made sure all the passengers had a great time.  The first mate was great also.  All of the crew were friendly and helpful.  Wyn and I enjoyed the trip and will recommend the Liberty Clipper to all.

A relaxing Windjammer barefoot Cruise in the Bahamas

A relaxing Windjammer barefoot Cruise in the Bahamas

What is Luxury?  It means many things to many people.  For us, a week in the Bahamas aboard the Liberty Clipper has been luxury!  To disconnect from a past paced life and reconnect with "life at sea" is a gift.  Sailing, true sailing, on Liberty Clipper allows us to feel the rhythms Mother Nature has so long played.  Snorkeling and swimming right off the ship gives us sweet glimpses of the beauties she offers for us who are lucky enough to enjoy them.  Mere humans are we!

Enough waxing like the moon-Pancho and I thank the great crew for taking good care of us and for being interested in the craft of tall ship sailing.  It is an admirable passion.  Thanks to Jan for providing fine meals from a small galley.

We loved having only 6 passengers and were lucky that we all got along well with much laughter and camaraderie.

We have been windjammer barefoot cruise people in the past, having sailed on the Yankee Clipper, the Polynesia and the Legacy.  They were lots of fun with lots of activities.  I liked this week aboard the Liberty Clipper because we did not have all that- so simple, so relaxing, so often quiet (except for Maggies giggles-so sweet)-so back to what's real.

Thank You all,

Third time aboard the Windjammer Liberty Clipper in the Bahamas for vacation!

It was such a joy to come back to the Bahamas for a third time of sailing on my first tall ship love, the Liberty Clipper.  Going to the Exumas was really a dream come true; so I really want to thank Captain Chris for making that happen, and thank you to the awesome crew for making it so much fun and so memorable.  Fair winds and following seas to Chris, Jon, Maggie, Clint, Jan, Sean, Amanda, Jason and Mike.  I will think of your often and hope we meet again someday.

My dream vacation sailing a windjammer in the Exuma islands!

My dream vacation sailing a windjammer in the Exuma islands!

Woohoo!

It's hard to find the words to describe the pure joy we found this week aboard the Liberty Clipper.  It wasn't just a vacation in the Caribbean, or an adventure in sailing the Bahamas, or a voyage through the Exuma Isands; it was so much more.  We have dreamed of cruising on a tall ship for years; why did we let life get in the way before!?!  It's all about the memories.  To all of the crew: Captain Matt, Jon, Clint, Derrick, Sean, Tom, Amanda, Jan, and Mike, you wove yourselves into our hearts and memories.  To all-follow your dreams, keep expounding your dreams, and conquer your fears (like climbing to the cross tree platform-how incredible!).

It was so much fun being able to work with the crew on the ship!  We were able to do everything we talked about.  Thank you all for making this a vacation we will remember forever.  May the Lord bless every one of you.

Sailing to the end of the world on a Classic Windjammer in the Bahamas

Great crew, thanks for attending so well to our enjoyment.  Amanda, Clint, Jon, Tom, Sean, Derrick, Jan, Mike, Captain Matt, Thank you all.  Thanks for taking us to the dolphin beach and almost to the end of the world in the peapod.

Also thank you for all the other many amazing experiences during this lovely week.  I do have to write my book eventually, and the Liberty Clipper will be a very good model for the Belmont Clipper in 1915.  Thanks for the best possible introduction to the real life of a sailing ship- although we were far more comfortable than the people I'm writing about would have been.

See you all again, I hope,

New sailor in the Bahamas aboard a windjammer with the Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships!

New sailor in the Bahamas aboard a windjammer with the Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships!

I cannot believe how much fun this week sailing the Exumas with Liberty Clipper was.  For a "new sailor," I had a terrific time.  The crew was terrific, fun, friendly, and professional.  A hard combination to balance.  Also the food was beyond delicious.  I don't know what I was expecting, but certainly not the fantastic meals Jason and company provided.  Best of all, the beautiful seas of the Bahamas.  This gets an A+++ rating.  I loved every moment. My only complaint-it was too short.

Another bucket list checked off! Sailing on a classic tall ship for vacation in the Bahamas!

I had a barefoot cruise on my "bucket list," and now I have done that, in the Bahamas, thanks to the Liberty Clipper!  The weather was hot at first but the water was wonderful.  The crew was very good and nice to be with.  We had good food and great sailing, and Jon was fantastic with his wonderful knowledge of the boat and the Bahamas.  Captain Matt was also great and made all of us feel welcome.  We are looking forward to returning for a second time!

Roger and Marian 

Thanks for a great cruise!

Loved our Windjammer Sailing Experience around the Bahamas on the Liberty Clipper

Loved our Windjammer Sailing Experience around the Bahamas on the Liberty Clipper

A perfect week of weather, sailing and island beaches on our Bahamas sailing cruise. Thanks to the entire crew they were friendly and helpful always. Made us feel at home. We will see one of Clint's old boats Pride of Baltimore II on July 26th in Duluth, MN. Nancy and I hit on this cruise as soon as we saw the website - the reality was better. Thanks to Jan and Jason for great meals all week. Twelve guests was a wonderful mix and we especially enjoyed meeting Linda - miss you.

All our best,

Bill & Nancy
