Ahoy, Senior Sailors! A 13-day Caribbean Cruise for Mature Singles

Feeling lucky? Windjammer Barefoot Cruises, that old reliable outfitter of beautiful tall sailing ships, is offering a special mid-summer singles-only cruise covering the length of the Caribbean archipelago. And while they offer a variety of singles cruises throughout the year, these usually attract the 20's and 30's crowd. This cruise, setting out on August 3, is targeted to mature persons, or, as they refer to the 50-plus-in-age traveler, the "young-at-heart."

This is a specialized trip on a smaller vessel, so the all-inclusive price (except for airfare) starts at a moderate $1,300 per person and climbs up to the expensive $2,800, with an additional $150 port tax tacked on to all prices. For this you get your full room-and-board (including three full meals, plus snacks and drinks--alcoholic or not) aboard the M.V. Amazing Grace, Windjammer's sole motor vessel, which will hold a maximum of 94 passengers. The lower price gets you a "lesser" room, meaning you'll most likely share a berthed room with a same-sex passenger, and you may have to share a bathroom. More expensive rooms have more amenities. Visit, and click on "Ships" to look over the boat.

The Grace is a working vessel for the fleet, resupplying the tall ships out on their own itineraries, so the atmosphere is casual (shorts, polo shirts, sandals, etc.). Your journey starts in Freeport, Bahamas and the boat will pull into its final port two weeks later in Trinidad. Ports-of-call along the way will be determined by the locations of the sail boats, the seas and the weather, but should include some of the lesser-traveled islands along the way, including Norman Island, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, Dominica, Grenada, Bequia, Nevis and Antigua.

Days will be spent either relaxing aboard ship, but more likely ashore, enjoying quiet beaches, pristine landscapes, plus optional activities like snorkeling, birding, hiking or shopping. Nights are the highlight, with planned activities such as parties, contests, bingo and other games. Again, this is casual, so you can partake as much or as little as you want on your quest to meet that certain someone.
