Our first Windstar cruise (my second cruise (Regent Seven Seas), my wife's first). My wife and I were traveling with six other couples to celebrate multiple 50th birthdays. We were collectively thrilled with our choice of Wind Surf. We had read many reviews on this forum and others and we prepared to be underwhelmed -- no chance! The Wind Surf is getting a bit long in the tooth (scheduled for a three-week dry dock in the next month) but it did not deter from our enjoyment. Food: Amazing! Having read reviews, the food gets mixed ratings. I don't get it -- we are somewhat picky and it exceeded expectations (common theme). Our only gripe is that we needed reservations in the two higher-end dinner spots and many tables were open. Great variety and top-notch quality. I had steak multiple nights and on EVERY occasion it was prepared perfectly! Service: Over-the-top! Andreas and his team were wonderful. They got to know us early in the cruise and went out of their way to make us feel like it was our private yacht. Andreas -- wow, he gave us such personal attention. We all said we will try to base our next cruise on his schedule. Cabin: Again, prepared to be under-whelmed but was pleasantly surprised. Were were forward in cabin 151. Good sized, great storage, no issues. Would we rather of had a private balcony, of course. But no worries! Entertainment: Understated but perfect! We had great evenings with the bands (some of us participated more than others (BK). The crew show was hilarious. Water platform: SO MUCH FUN!! A great touch. Size: Loved the size of the ship -- more than enough variety and the personal touches. Atmosphere: Casual but not too casual. Perfect blend. Gym: I used the gym most mornings. Great location -- all windows on the top deck. Enjoyed watching us come into port each morning. Tips: buy the laundry package -- do NOT hesitate. We also purchased the full drink and wifi package. As reported, wifi is weak but that was more than offset by the drinks! Very good scotch selection. They purchased local beers at most ports. The wine selection is just adequate. Aside from requiring dinner reservations, we LOVED IT! Highly recommended! Read Less

Windstar knows how to treat their guests. From the transfer from the aiport to the transfer to our hotel, it was smooth sailing. The cabin was what we expected for an A category. It was well laid out, upscale and very comfortable. ... Read More
Windstar knows how to treat their guests. From the transfer from the aiport to the transfer to our hotel, it was smooth sailing. The cabin was what we expected for an A category. It was well laid out, upscale and very comfortable. There was plenty of closet/storage space. The restaurant/food choices were excellent at all meals. We particularly enjoyed the varied menu each evening in the main dining room. There was never a line for anything. There was always an available cushioned lounge chair. It was the most unhurried, pampered cruising we have done. We took advantage of the $99.00 unlimited laundry (which we read about before we arrived) and were able to pack half of what we normally would have. It left plenty of room for purchases and no worries about additional baggage fees. We only took one shore excursion and the guide was of the highest quality. The ports we visited from Athens to Istanbul were outstanding. We took advantage of checking out one of the complimentary Ipods and emjoyed the musical selections on the speakers that were also provided. Although it was only available at two ports, due to port regulations, we enjoyed the availability of the water sports platform. This is a truly unique attraction for a cruise. I would highly recommend the Windsurf to couples and families with older children. I look forward to cruising with them again in the not too distant future. Read Less
