Absolutely first class service from all the crew. Fabulous food. Great ammenities onboard. They give you the personal touch and make you feel special. They provided a night out for a dinner in Kusadasi at a venue that was out of this world. It was priceless. A true touch of magic, which we came to expect from Wind Star. If you want to cruise the Greek Islands in style, you can't go past Wind Star ...

To celebrate our 25th anniversary my wife and I decided a trip to Europe would be a special gift to ourselves. We chose the Star Prides Venetian Passages for its interesting ports of call and the intimate small cruise boat experience. This was to be our first cruise experience. Windstar and Star Pride did not disappoint. The rooms, service and staff were all exceptional and made us feel special ...

We booked this cruise in May 2014 when we were on the Windsurf through a program that is no longer available. I believe that the program was called destinations; it provided an additional 5% off of the 5% already given to pervious guests. However, throughout the year, the price was reduced and a call to Windstar enabled us to get the lower price. They have a a new program called Welcome Home ...

What a Disappointment

We had never cruised before, and I thought that the "brand new" Star Pride would be a good option to take to see if we liked cruising. First let me say that the staff is top notch and five star in every way possible, and in no way does this review reflect on them. Rather, it is corporate management, Hans Birkholz et al, that is receiving this one star rating (and I am being generous). Shame, ...

Not quite ready for Prime Time

Both ship and it's several facilities were so not ready for this trip. We were told at booking that this ship which has recently been purchased from Seabourn Cruises had had a complete refit....just not so. The swimming pool had rust surrounding all four walls and during the entire trip not one passenger was seen using it. The three jacuzzi pools were problematic as well. One never got hot enough ...

Do not cruise on this ship until Windstar has totally updated and repaired this ship, which as the crew told us all needs to be done in dry dock. In brief, the physical plant is deplorable. It is our strong opinion the Xanterra group who took ownership of this ship earlier this year made a poor strategic decision to commission this slightly remodeled vessel realizing the ship was not ready to ...

We chose this cruise line for two reasons: small ship and locations that we wanted to go to. The cruise starts in Athens and visits Greek Islands, and Turkish ports, ending at Istanbul. We got to all the ports that were planned and that part of the cruise worked well. The ship was small and that part worked well also. The problem is that the cruise line promotes itself as luxury, great service, ...
