Next Generation Cruising

by Sherri Eisenberg


What: Windjammer Barefoot Cruises

Where: Caribbean

Perfect for: Young social types who aren't into bus tours.

Youth Factor: The sailboat-styled ships are geared toward extroverts, with boisterous mealtimes (everyone eats at communal tables), casual dress codes (shoes and shirts not required), and a playful atmosphere. Flash back to freshman year by donning an eye patch and hat on the "Pirates, Pimps, and Prostitutes" costume night.

Cruise Mates: Young couples and singles looking to make new friends (there are also singles-only trips).

High Seas: Larger ships may love their rules, but Windjammer is relaxed. Visit the captain in the control room (usually a no-no), sleep under the stars, dive off the deck. And since the ships are smaller than most, they can access islands that the megaships can't.

Rough Sailing: Cabins are "simple"—code word for not-so-luxurious. Chances are you'll be peering out of a porthole from your bunk bed. Plus no spa or gym.

The Deal: Six-night cruises start at $1,000 per person.
