What Ever Happened To........???A place to discuss the glorious past of cruising...the ships, the people, the cruise lines, the ports that bring back those wonderful memories.
update on the sailing cruise ship Mandalay, which went out of service when Windjammer Barefoot Cruises went belly up in 2007 and later was purchased and refurbed by Angermeyer Cruises and then put up for sale earlier this year:
Windjammer Sailing Adventures out of Florida has purchased Mandalay and supposedly plans to sail her out of Grenada. The jammerbabe website has posts about her being under sail this week, on the way to Panama. And this morning, this post was made by Old Salt on that site:
"Windjammer Sailing Adventures will be announcing their plans for the Mandalay within the next two weeks."
Since 2000: on Sailing Ships
Arabella (4), Diamant (3), Mandalay, Polynesia, Sagitta, Star Clipper (2), Star Flyer, Wind Star (2), Wind Surf (2)

So happy about the Mandalay -- she was my wedding ship in 2005 at Norman Island in the BVI.
And because of her...I got certified and now sail every year (sometimes more than once!)with my husband in the BVI -- really hope they include a BVI itinerary at some point -- there's a big Flotilla from Travel Talk Online taking place the week of July 4....just a thought
Thanks for the update. Been a long time since I heard about the Mandalay.
