The iconic Liberty Star is a traditional gaff-rigged, two-masted wooden schooner built by Maine craftsmen. The Liberty Star was lovingly refit in 2012 for service in the British Virgin Islands. The ship features two upper and lower berth cabins, as well as a deluxe cabin with a full-sized double bed.

The cabins have been paneled in yellow pine to provide a warm and rich feeling. Each bunk is outfitted with comfortable pillows, linens, and blankets. The cabins have 110-volt outlets to charge electrical devices and each bunk features a reading light.

There is a shared bathroom below decks as well as a fresh-water shower on the main deck. The ship also features a salon, which offers plenty of room to eat on deck under the warm Caribbean sun.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
