Enchanting Greece-Amalfi Coast

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Italy
Embarkation: Athens (Piraeus)

Second cruise on Windstar. The positives are the sleek semi-sailing yachts, the small number of passengers and the attention from the service staff. The not-so-positives on this cruise were the "weak" ports we visited and the shore excursions. Monamvasia is ok, Gythian was nondescript , Taormina was very touristy, as well as Capri, Lipari should have been skipped.

Our first cruise with Windstar included the Greek Islands and Turkey and had much better port stops and shore excursions. Calling this cruise an Amalfi Coast cruise is a stretch.

Cabin was comfortable and had adequate room considering size of boat. Minimal noise.

Food is slightly above average and that commentary would probably be related to what your dining experience is. I would certainly not call it extravagant . With a small passenger group and considering the expense of this type of cruise, you expect an assortment of attitudes. I found it interesting that a "peck" order developed on this More cruise that was orchestrated by a Texas "big shot." Also found no one really went out of their way to be friendly with us. I would recommend you look for other Windstar itineraries before considering this one. Less
