Athens-Istanbul aboard Windstar

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other
Had a great time...fab service..never waited for a thing

Gym is modest in size and scope, 1 working treadmill, bike, and elliptical of average quality. Was fine and I was almost the only user. My wife signed up for the fitness classes led by Bjork and enjoyed them (9) classes

We packed light so we could carry on the plane and got the laundry package was a great idea. We took fewer clothes and sent out laundry every morning. They did a great job and we had clean freshly pressed clothes every day and clean work out gear.

We also did the beverage package option which while not cheap was convienent and we spent a lot of time on board so it was worthwile for us. Was a good idea for us

If you go on Windstar look for Edison the bartender...he will take great care of you.

Did a private tour of Ephesus with a private guide and driver for less than most excursions. Was a great idea as Ephesus is very busy so having a private guide made it easy to More hear what she was saing and to follow along...also was able to skip the rug making sales pitch. $100 for two

Had a lower deck cabin...great A/C..great bed...great shower
