When in Barbados, there was a small ship docked next to us. I believe the name was Fairwind. The logo was of a crown so I thought it was Regal Cruises. However, I cannot find that ship listed for Regal and the logo looked different. Anyone have any ideas on what ship it was?
Thanks. I was getting confused since the Fairwind was the name of a Sitmar ship, bought by Princess, and now named Albatross. Your saying that this may actually be named Fairwind "now" and I should be able to get information using name Boheme?
I sailed on Sitmar's Fairsea in 1978 when we rendezvoused with her sister ship the Fairwind in the open sea off the coast of Mexico for a total eclipse. I agree. Sitmar was a very classy line, and its Italian cuisine was still the best I've enjoyed on any line. Thanks for bringing back the memory!
I have not sailed on a cruise since the Sitmar days that has offered the total class and wonderfull Italian food that the great Faiwind and Fairsea offered. ( I have sailed 25 cruises since the Sitmar ships, but always find myself reflecting back to Sitmar days to compare cruises. Its so sad that there are no "real Italian" ships left cruising. Costa doesn't even count.
Currently I have been sailing with Celebrity, and enjoy the excellent service, but still I miss all the great pasta.
I have found Radisson to be a little too pricey to bring the entire family. We usually cruise with our two teens and that additional cost on this line would be just too much, but thanks for the suggestion. By the way, did you know the original owners and founders of Silver Sea's line was the same family that owned Sitmar.They have since sold the line but I know the Staff and food were Italian and bet the food is excellent. (to pricey for my budget)
