Windstar's addition of the three "motor yachts", recently acquired from Seabourn has been a pleasant surprise. AND it means, along with getting an outstanding level of service, the shipboard and cabin environment is more ... Read more

Despite rather spotty reviews regarding Star Pride and the fact that it had a grounding episode last fall, we decided to give it a try. That was based on several factors. First, it fit with the rest of our travel plans and was the right ... Read more

On one of Star Pride's first cruises coming off of a very long dry-dock to the tune of $4+ million, I must say we found the ship looking great, and it was hard to believe she was first launched in 1988. Lots redone to the public areas - ... Read more

The cruise seemed to be starting off well with smooth and efficient boarding (at least on the cruise line's part -- the port, on the other hand, was a nightmare). We embarked on the early side and enjoyed a pleasant lunch al fresco at the ... Read more
