I'm coming into Portland airport and being picked up by limo about 11 am on 9/13 for couple hour drive to Camden. Anyone with compatible time frame is welcome to share the ride. also being picked up at Angelique on 9/19 for return to Portland airport.

When I was onboard, all participants shared the space under the bottom bunk. I brought two soft sided duffle bags so I could change the shape. My cabin mate brought a hard sided carry-on sized bag. No laptops...no internet. Bring your wine or whatever you like... flashlight... hat, long johns (In Sept it was cold!) Enjoy!!!!

By the way, you can recharge your cell phone on board Angelique.

Is a list of the participants on this cruise available? Curious as to where we all are from?

Darleen Kraemer May 26, 2015 at 02:34 PM

Backpack also good idea for luggage-storage under bottom bunk only. I was lucky to have cabin to myself, but upper bunk would have to stow under sink or on shelf. Check out other suggestions on this page--pack as light as you can & have fun!! Maybe large shopping bag? (Check those cabin demensions)

OK it sounds like we don't need a laptop. Also will we have enough room for a suitcase or overnight bag?
Patricia Campbell May 25, 2015 at 08:21 PM

Hi Althea. I'm doing the trip in September and have done a lot of sailing. Plan on taking a duffle bag or something that you can collapse or fold up. There is very limited space on sailboats and you will be sharing a room. There is no place to stow a hard sided suitcase. Also avoid rollers on your case too. You will be happier with packing light and being able to stow your items.

Hi all - I'm wondering whether some kind person may be inclined to share their ride from Boston to Camden on departure day? I live down 'south' in Maryland. really excited to see sail on Angelique and to see Acadia!

sorry william, I'm traveling from Woodstock Vermont on the day of the sail. See you aboard!
Patricia Campbell May 13, 2015 at 05:32 PM

William - if all else fails, I believe there is a bus from Logan to Camden.
William James May 13, 2015 at 05:58 PM

Thank you kindly. I'm looking into Cape Air, though it's expensive.

William ~ A ~ I have done the journey from BOS, to Camden, Maine, to catch the Angelique, twice. By public transport... Unless you happen to be fortunate enough to "connect" with another Angelique passenger, boarding on your expected date of arrival at the Angelique, picking you up at BOS is a considerable inconvenience. What you do is get the train from BOS (Logan) in to the city, and transfer (walk) to North Station, where the bus services are. This is not difficult with a wheeled med duffel bag. (Avoid hard-sided or you could have storage issue on the ship) Link ~ www.mbta.com/schedules_and_maps/bus There is frequent bus service up the coast of Mass, through NH, and up the coast of Maine to Camden Maine. B ~ You should arrive on your "reporting date" and NOT on your date of departure (date of sailing) or you will LITERALLY miss the boat. Your reporting date is the day before the date of departure (sailing), so plan to be there on the afternoon of that reporting date, as there are introductions, bunk assignments, etc. B~ What I did was arrive in Camden, the day before the report date, and stay overnight in the Camden area ~ somewheres ~ go to tripadvisor.com. C~ On the voyages that I took on the Angelique, (7 night, Sat-Fri) we DID NOT go to Arcadia National Park, which is a good ways up the coast of Maine. Mainly sailed in the Bay of Maine, off and around Camden, which was beautiful. I hope this helps. Can't call you ~ I am in OZ for the summer. (Australia) Also, take a good wool watch hat (stocking cap), which will keep you head warm, day or night (in Bed). Bon Voyage, Terry S.
