our 6-day Caribbean cruise, the Arabella atmosphere was not as
rowdy as I saw on our three Windjammer Barefoot cruises, but I
think anyone who enjoyed those old ships will love the Arabella….It's
a smaller ship, but much nicer and with better food. The wonderful
8-person crew is friendly and helpful, and the ambiance is casual
and cozy. Several of our fellow sailors had also cruised with
Windjammer Barefoot cruises, and they all seemed to agree with

"Capt. Sandy & Crew- We cant thank you enough for such
a fantastic week.
Your many kindnesses, great spirit & professionalism will
always be remembered.
Oh yeah…did we mention the flat out fun factor?”
Marlene & Steve - Maplewood, MN
“We have sailed 10-11 times w/ Windjammer Barefoot Cruises. We have found Arabella to be a unique and classy sailing experience. Arabella should not (repeat, not) attempt to emulate windjammer. No games and we do not need every moment scheduled. We truly enjoyed the great sailing.”

Penny & Keith – Halifax, Nova Scotia
“Great trip! We had a great group of passengers and the crew was first rate. They took care of any need that we had and were always readily available & happy. We’ll definitely be back on this boat sometime. Also, food on trip was fantastic and I’m a very picky eater.” Alan & Renee – Hamilton, OH
“We felt totally at home on the Arabella from the first day! Many thanks for a most memorable holiday. We would love to sail with you again!”
