I, for one, hope that Windjammer can get back on its feet. I've sailed with them twice and will never sail on another cruise line. Those were the best two vacations I have ever taken! Between the crew being so helpful, friendly and fun and the ships themselves, well, it just wouldn't be the same on another line. I have been out of the loop for a couple years and didn't even realize the problems that they were having. I wish I'd win the lottery and then I could be their "silent partner". Of course I 'd always be on of the ships so I don't know how "silent" I'd be.
I wish the Burkes good luck and hope they find what they need to keep the line going. It would be so sad to lose this line of the most beautiful ships I've ever seen.
I also would like to express how sorry I am for the loss of their family members.
Blessings to all
