Paul, I thoroughly enjoyed reading all of your installments re: Windjammer Cruises. Sounds like the Burkes were/are quite a family bent on greed and no business sense whatsoever. Back about '97 we were on Sun Princess and the Fantome was beside us in port. She was quite awesome and we watched as the Marachi band played and the passengers partied. It was terrible what happened to the Fantome and I read that the captain was the best of the best. I will never forget the memory of that day. Your articles spun a complicated tale and you did an excellent job writing about the demise of Windjammer Cruises.
