SV Polynesia leaves Aruba to Portugal
I’ve written on many occasions the sad state of former Windjammer Cruises ship SV Polynesia which was chained in Aruba for almost two years. Windjammer Cruises fell into hard time due to internal struggles between the owners and left debt behind.
Windjammer Cruises was highly regarded by people who have cruised with them before. They found the cruises to be unforgettable. Many long lasting relationships were built, while lots of different ports were visited. The ships’ staff were as divers as the port of calls were.
I really thought that SV Polynesia was going to end up on the bottom of the ocean as no party showed any interest in acquiring this beauty. Finally someone (company) bought the ship in foreclosure. On Friday the 13th it left Aruba, headed for Portugal. This old fisher boat might return to its old glory.
