Offering the best of both worlds, the four-masted Wind Spirit sailing yacht feels adventurous but is actually quite cushy. This is not the kind of adventure cruise where you climb the masts and help pull up the sails. Instead, you sit back and enjoy the show from the comfort of a chaise lounge as the computer-controlled sails rise and fall at the push of a button.
The open deck at the stern is the place to be as you cruise between islands, taking a dip in the pool and soaking up views that go on for miles. While Wind Spirit feels gloriously intimate and carries just 148 passengers, it’s big enough for two restaurants, a lounge, a little casino, and a library. There’s even a small gym and a massage room. The 188-square-foot cabins fit in a lot of amenities, including minibars, with all soft drinks and bottled waters included in the fares.
