Wind Spirit Cruise Review by Spudsmack: Record Sail on Wind Spirit
Overall Member Rating
Record Sail on Wind Spirit
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Colon (Cristobal)
The line doesn't boast much on its sailing prowess but this one set some records; twenty hours continuous sail only power and over 90% sails deployed time! Sailed the northwesterly route from Colon through the Panama Canal up the west coast of Costa Rica to Puerto Caldera. Great itinerary. If you want to see wildlife this one is it. Crocodiles, herons, monkeys, snakes, macaws, tucans, sloth, coati, birds and butterflies.
Staff is superb! They know your name after a day or so, and my wife wanted to take some of them home with her. The evening sail offs were not to be missed. And the ability to go up on the bridge for a chat is a feature unique to Windstar.
The concept of a small boat may be a turnoff for some but it's the best way to meet new friends and see places off the beaten track of the larger lines.
Will be back again Less
