I have nothing but nice things to say about WindStar. First, the disclaimers- if you are YOUNG, this might not be for you. We've been on 3 Windstar cruises and they are typically older folks who don't want evening entertainment. There ... Read more

We had sailed on the Aegean Cruise with the Wind Spirit and wanted to go to Polynesia with them. We loved every minute! Our cabin was constantly tidied with fresh towels provided, and our meals were superb - expertly cooked from scratch ... Read more

We chose this cruise firstly for the destination, then for the small number of passengers & finally because the ship was different with its sails. The ship & staff were excellent & although the cabins are a little dated they ... Read more

Water activities around the Society islads was the aim. That was great. The ship itself is sufficient but limited. One bar one restaurant (ok there is the so called "candles) but actually that is just setting the tables on the pool ... Read more

I may be the only person who didn't enjoy this cruise and i accept some responsibility for this. The ship itself is beautiful; if you are a couple or family travelling together, it is perfect. if you are single and don't drink and aren't ... Read more

We chose this cruise ship firstly because of its destinations (Tahiti & French Polynesia) and secondly because we liked the idea of a smaller boat that offered the feel of a "private yacht" without being surrounded by ... Read more

This cruise was selected based the variety of destinations included in the cruise and the fact that the ship was a four masted sailing yacht. The ship did not disappoint. The crew was fabulous and treated each passenger with amazing care ... Read more

This was our first ever cruise but we have stayed at various resorts (all-inclusive and non-all inclusive) and I am basing the experience on those stays. This trip was our honeymoon in Tahiti and also included stays in Papeete and Moorea. ... Read more

Just got home from my third Windstar cruise (twice previously in the Med). I love the smaller yachts which appeal to better clientel and few if anyone under age 18. Windstar is not a cruiseline that people take children on and let them ... Read more

Just came off the Windspirit. My 3rd windstar cruise. It was an amazing week, but I will offer one caveat. The cruise is designed to allow you to snorkel or scuba in some of the most beautiful waters. If however you are not into water ... Read more

The line doesn't boast much on its sailing prowess but this one set some records; twenty hours continuous sail only power and over 90% sails deployed time! Sailed the northwesterly route from Colon through the Panama Canal up the west ... Read more
