Fantastic tall ships!
And I like your images of them.
I'm a city boy, but why are there so many sails up when the water is so calm. Shouldn't there be row boats pulling the ships to find the wind? Or is that only in the movies?
The problem with a square-rigger cruise is that you go on it because you like to see square-riggers sailing, but you're always on it when it is. Except that, knowing that, they have one day (usually when it's very calm) when they take everyone out in the tenders to take pictures! Actually the engines will drive it nearly as fast as the sails (about 14 knots) but they try not to use them unless they are very behind schedule or heading directly upwind
