Sailing Ship Cruises
For those who enjoy sailing ships and the adventure of an open deck and canvas overhead, we dedicate this page.  Also see our Cruise Ship travel topic. Wikipedia has a nice article on tall ships and lists all of them in the world with separate pages for most of them. Well-done!  Like any cruise, compare prices before booking as you may get a better deal using a cruise broker or consolidator, such as an online travel agency like Travelocity or Expedia, than booking directly with the cruise line.
