Ship Facts: Wind Surf Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Wind Surf Deck Plans
so different, so nice
After sailing on several other cruise lines, I finally tried Windsurf. I have enjoyed most of my previous cruises....large or small. What attracted me to the Windsurf was the sailing feature. It was also very convenient sailing out/into St. Martin. We vacation in St. Martin often. This time we stayed in St. Martin and then cruised...best of both worlds.

Boarding was so easy. As stated, boarding started at 1pm. Our bags were given cabin tags and quickly delivered to our cabin. Unlike other ships, the bags were placed inside the cabin on the bed. No need to lift. We unpacked and went to lunch at the Veranda.

The Veranda was a combo of buffet/menu service for lunch and breakfast. There were tables inside and on on the deck. Service was outstanding. Food was excellent. For dinner, we could choose from 3 venues. Main room was AmphorA, french bistro Stella Bistro, and outdoor Candles. Also, room service was available 24/7. Compass Rose, a aft bar, served continental breakfast and afternoon tea. Yacht Club served light breakfast and sandwiches. Bars were located all around the ship. All non alcoholic drinks were free. Wine and other alcoholic drinks were fairly priced...and they poured heavy. For those huge drinkers, there was a beverage package. We did not buy that package. We also enjoyed the bbq dinner on deck with lobsters.

Cabin was well organized. Bed was very comfortable. Linens were good. The soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc. were L occitane.....very nice. We opted for the unlimited laundry package at $109/week. Same day service. I loved it.

Entertainment was simple. No big productions or loud games. Outdoor pool and hot tubs, water sports platform, and beautiful water views were excellent. We also enjoyed the time sailing with the sails hoisted....quiet and beautiful.

In most ports we tendered. Tenders were frequent....no lines

Unlike other cruises which seem to close down a few days before you depart, the Windsurf continued operating everything until midnight of the last day.

Disembarkation was easy. We left at 8:45 am and easily found our luggage which was in a tent next to the taxi stand. Within minutes we were on our way to the airport. $10 per person including luggage.

Windsurf was fantastic. Everything worked, service was superb, and I came home with a suitcase full of clean clothes.
