- The most amazing 3 months of my life!01/04/17
I think the most memorable experience for me was night watch, any of them. My favorite watch was definitely 12 a.m. to 4 a.m. The stars were incredible, and the bio luminescence was insane. It's hard to describe, but being under sail at night with out
the distractions of the daylight is just an experience in itself. I have been sailing since I was a little kid, so I though this just made sense. I wasn't ready for college and I though that combining one of the things that I love most with school I would be better prepared. The ship was absolutely gorgeous, it has been really well taken care of and you could tell. Our rooms and our bunks were in great shape. It was tight (but that's what to expect from a boat). During the trip it was up to us to keep our accommodations nice, so we were accountable for the messiness on board, if there was any.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
