Superb Tahitian cruise

Review for a South Pacific Cruise on Star Breeze

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 ...

Review for a Asia Cruise on Star Breeze

We really wanted to do a cruise around Japan and found this was the perfect itinerary and a great chance to try Windstar for the first time. We are frequent cruisers on Oceania & Azamara with several cruises on SilverSea and Seabourn. Windstar really impressed us. The ship was in great shape. We knew it was an "old" Seabourn yacht - so we expected it to be a bit dated. The soft goods all ...

We were attracted by the interesting Asian itinerary and the small ship size ( 300 pax max ) The cruise was of a high quality with both the hardware and software ( service levels ) in top order. The positive and optimistic attitude of the crew from the Captain, Officers to deck hands was outstanding. This created an excellent passenger experience. The cabin was extremely comfortable and ...

Before the pandemic, we took many cruises including 10 on Windstar. While we also enjoyed sailing on other cruise lines, we choose Windstar mainly for dining and relaxing. We loved the elegance and size of the Star ships before the stretch. When we heard that the ships were being stretched, we wondered how it would change the ships. Would there be enough space to accommodate more passengers? ...

Our experience started out really rough at the Port in Vancouver. No one seemed to know what the heck was going on and where to send us. There was a lot of walking involved and a lot of waiting! We arrived two hours after our embarkation time and still had to sit and wait at least 45 minutes to board. We found there to be little to no direction throughout the cruise. When in port they ...

After reading about Windstar on this forum and talking to my sister (who loved Windstar), I had high hopes for our first cruise with them. Well, the cruise is over and all I can say is I’m disappointed. We have some wonderful memories and we were impressed by a number of things but over all, it was a letdown. Maybe I just expected too much. This was not our first covid cruise, it was our third. ...

Our first Windstar experience, and while it wasn't bad, in certain areas it was disappointing. I realize that all cruise lines are struggling to get back to anything near "normal", so some our our experiences were somewhat to be expected. Highlights were the itinerary, spaciousness and layout of our Classic Suite cabin, friendliness of the staff, and their handling of any Covid-related issues. ...

Easing ourselves back into cruising

This was our first international trip since February 2020. We had actually booked this cruise for November of 2020 but of course it was canceled and we were able to rebook for early December 2021. We didn't feel we would be comfortable on a large cruise ship with 3600 plus passengers. The Star Breeze has a capacity of 312 passengers. Our cruise had 125 passengers so my wife and I felt very ...

After being trapped inside for months, like everyone else, we tried to visit anywhere we’d be accepted! We’d had so many trips canceled we were pleased to go anywhere! Tahiti it was! We booked back to back cruises so after visiting the Tuamotus we circled French Polynesia twice! What we missed the first time because we were on different excursions, we got to see the second time around. It was ...

We decided to try a different cruise line as our favorite has been Celebrity. We have sailed Carnival, Norwegian, Princess, Royal Caribbean, and Celebrity in the past. Since we had never been to French Polynesia, we chose Windstar and wanted to try out the Star Breeze which had just undergone expansion and refurbishment. Of course due to Covid, we had 2 cancellations before going on the ...
