Just back from another great Windstar cruise (our 13th) from Barcelona to Rome. This was the first time we took Windstar (or any cruise line from that matter) for a European cruise and, also the first time we sailed on the Wind Spirit, our previous 12 cruises having all been in the Caribbean (Wind Surf, Star Pride, Star Legend & Wind Star).We sailed with another couple (their 4th time on Windstar ...

Star Breeze - Dreams of Tahiti 7 day Papeete to Papeete, April 25, 2024. Best cruise ship I have been on. Only about 230 passengers - small ship. Cabin - excellent. Food - all dining included - food 8 out of 10. Cabin attendant 10/10. Staff overall 10/10. Excursions were great. What I liked most about the Star Breeze is the size of the ship - no long lines, easy to get to where you need to be, ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

First time taking a Windstar Cruise. Expectations were a little higher than experience, such as the souvenir shop had limited clothing sizes and selection and I found the bed to be very uncomfortable without any topper to soften the hard mattress. The food was great and the crew the best I've seen, especially my cabin attendant, Nilu, who kept my room clean and my bed made or turned down, as I ...

Superb Tahitian cruise

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We’ve never enjoyed a cruise so much before! Good points It starts with the ship’s modest size with only a few hundred passengers. We arrived at the port at 1:30 and were in our cabin 15 minutes later. We got one of the new midship cabins and were impressed by its roomy bathroom, especially the shower. The food was surprisingly good - much better than at a couple of fancy Tahitian ...

I am leaving this review to help people who have maybe looked at Windstar, but are unsure or unable to find much information outside of their website. I had been looking for months for a special trip for us, and I did as much research as i could before choosing Windstar. My boyfriend and I chose this cruise for a special anniversary trip. And my goodness, it was the best trip we have ever taken! ...

Panama Canal Crossing

Review for a Panama Canal & Central America Cruise on Star Pride

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

My very first cruise ever was in 2007 on Carnival that included an excursion of partial transfer of Panama Canal. Always wanted to do total crossing and Windstar had a reduced single supplement so figured March 2 would be a good time as I had trips scheduled for December, January, and February so March was booked. I could find very little information on this cruise so even though this was last ...

Great food and service — but lack of air conditioning ruined the experience

This was our second Windstar cruise, but will be our last. Our first experience with Windstar was excellent. Rooms are spacious, service and the people are terrific, and the food is very good. All the same on this experience as well. However, our Panama Canal cruise was largely ruined by the complete lack of air conditioning in most public spaces. It was simply miserable to be anywhere ...

I have sailed on the Wind Surf many times, and have 4-Star Yacht Club privileges. But my past voyages have always been with my wife and sometimes with another couple. I have planned many group travel adventures for my sports club (Ski Club of Washington, DC) and decided to give Windstar a try. I contacted Amy Conover, who is a Director of Charter and Incentive Sales, whom I had previously met on ...

Life is Great on the Wind Surf

We have been sailing with Windstar Cruises since 1999, 28 cruises, 282 days. Windstar Cruise' s ships fit us, it is as easy as that. We love the smallness, the Wind Surf has huge roomy decks even on a full ship it is easy to fine a private, quiet spot. Being a foodie with lots of knowledge we love that the buffets are really not, they are a small fruit bar in the morning with a few sides and at ...

First, we are a French-Canadian couple in our late 50’s/early 60’s from Quebec. We have sailed numerous times with Windstar since 2013 (4 Star Yacht Club members). All our cruises have been in the Caribbean with cruises on the Wind Star, Star Pride, Star Legend and Wind Surf. What we love about Windstar (and still do after 11 years of cruising with them) is the small ships, the fact you can do ...
