It may have been the best night's sleep I've ever had. Setting sail aboard the Star Flyer out of Athens in the middle of the night was serene and dreamy.
Cruising on a cruise ship with sails is my ideal luxury cruise vacation. There is something special being on a ship that is powered by the wind. Also being smaller, these luxury cruise ships can gain access to ports that the larger ships cannot. of the 8 ships presented, all but 2 are cruise ships with sail power. The exceptions are The La Estrella Amazonica which cruises the Amazon River in Peru and the Queen of the West which is a Mississippi sternwheeler.
My wife and I do plan (someday) on taking a cruise on a cruise ship with sails. Right now we are looking at Windstar Cruises (Wind Spirit, Wind Star and Wind Surf) and Star Clippers (Star Clipper, Star Flyer and Royal Clipper).
