One of Windjammer Barefoot Cruises' oldest and most popular ships (once belonged to EF Hutton).
It is still in service with a new company - has anyone sailed on it?
THE MANDALAY IS UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP AND THRIVING!
I've sailed ON the Mandy twice so far - once in '14 and earlier this year. Two future cruises are scheduled: October '15 and December '16. Captain Sly still doing a great job as master of the vessel. Many of the crew have been with the Mandy for many years. Once on board, there are no strangers - only new friendships to be made. Destinations vary, food is plentiful and delicious, service is great. All in all, an adventure worth repeating again and again!
We are old Windjammers. Ther are alot of negative reviews of the Mandalay, and it is hard to sort out what is relevant and what not. Is the food similar to the old Windjammer Mandalay? The experience similar? Are people complaining that it is not a foofoo ship and that is what they expected? Or are things on a downhill trend, as we saw with Windjammer in 2006 and 2007?
