We use cruise ship repositioning trips to avoid air travel rather than for a "cruise" vacation. This was the first time we have crossed the Atlantic on a small ship, previously we have used Holland America and Celebrity and were ... Read more

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

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
