We are seasoned cruisers (Sea Goddess, Seabourn, Sea Dream, Silversea, Regent) but in the 20+ years of cruising we have never sailed on a "Wind" ship. We prefer small ships but we were concerned about the tightness of the staterooms and ... Read more

We took the ‘Jewels of the Caribbean’ tour around the Windward Islands on MSY ‘Windstar’. The ship is well equipped. Cabins are on two decks and all are alike and of similar size, except the Owner's Suite. They ... Read more

A wonderful trip on Windstar. Embarkation is so easy and the updated rooms were beautiful. Though smaller than some rooms on larger lines we never felt cramped. Lots of time spent on deck. We left Lisbon to sail the coast of Spain to ... Read more

We were looking for something different from a typical cruise... No formal nights... Relaxing, elegant, and fun...we found it! Being on a large yacht instead of a huge ship was intimate and you got to know as many or little people as you ... Read more

Let me start by saying we loved the food and service on the Windstar which is a 25 yr old 150 passenger sailboat/ship. Also, the excursions and guides are all well worth it. The newest ship is Wind Surf which is twice as big. Sailboats ... Read more
