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

This was the first smaller cruise we have done (roughly 120 passengers on this cruise) and we really liked it in comparison to the larger cruise ships we have taken. The service provided by the staff was exceptional. I don't know how they ... 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

Second cruise on Windstar. The positives are the sleek semi-sailing yachts, the small number of passengers and the attention from the service staff. The not-so-positives on this cruise were the "weak" ports we visited and the shore ... Read more

Cruise was great, but started out with poor weather (rain and wind from the East). We had to change itinerary and visit two different ports because of the wind. Windstar can not control the weather, and that's the only negative thing ... Read more
