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

Jeff in Virginia
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We were excited to tour the Panama Canal and to end up in Aruba. Overall the ship met our expectations and we were very pleased with the following: * Nice Cabin: We upgraded from the porthole floor (3rd) to the large window cabin on the 4th level and were glad we did that. Overall the room was large, nice walk-in closet, large bathroom with great shower. The seating area was comfortable and we ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Wind Star

DogLover326
2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

We chose Windstar since they are a "luxury cruise line" and paid the price of a luxury cruise line and didn't receive that experience. The interior of the ship is dated and needs an update. You feel like you are in a retirement home when you go to the main dining areas. The food was cruise ship average and we often skipped meals. The water sports platform wasn't open either of the days as ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Wind Star

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My experience in the cruise with food, beverage, staff and extra tours were good. The Chef and the whole kitchen team were ok and very friendly. Nevertheless I have no assistance for my own visit in Mykonos first port we stopped. I asked for a recommendation from the tour assistance team about a transport taxi driver or something like this to go to a public beach but I didn’t get any. The ...

Panal Canal Passage and Quepos Port Highlight of Trip

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

msandrews52
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because we wanted to do a full transit of the Panama canal on a small ship and do a one week cruise. The service was excellent, the cabin was comfortable and well designed. We got to use the water sports platform one day in Quepos and it was fun. The food was very good, especially at dinner. I wish they would serve more sandwich meat and cold salad (Deli-style) options at ...

Review for a Mediterranean Cruise on Wind Star

My wife and I just sailed on the Windstar Ship which left Athens Greece October 14 2022 and we ended in Rome, Italy for our honeymoon. This was by far one of the best vacations that we have ever had! I have traveled on other Windstar ships in the past (Wind Surf- Caribbean) and this one was just as great. The staff was very attentive learning everyone's name day #1 and extremely accommodating ...

Denali land package + 7 day cruise in Alaska -- FANTASTIC

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Wind Star

ColoradoGem
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

We heard a lot about the quality of Windstar cruises and decided to check it out. It certainly met out wildest expectations . We took a 5 day land tour of. Denali before embarking on the cruise in Juneau. The small ship provided a great intimate experience. The ship never felt crowded and we did not feel like we were in a herd of tourists. We were able to easily meet and make friends with ...

Good Potential but...

Review for a Greece Cruise on Wind Star

Spyder49
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was a cruise of the Greek isles out of Athens. There were just 99 passengers on this cruise which meant you got to know just about everyone. There was one major problem during the cruise with most of the culinary staff testing positive for Covid the second day of the cruise. The restaurant were closed for the remainder of the cruise with a buffet set up and served in the main lobby of the ...

Cruising in a late-pandemic world

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

LJWECOC
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We were tired of staying home and have always loved Windstar. Although we were somewhat put off by the COVID restrictions imposed by CDC and other governmental authorities, foreign and domestic, on the cruise lines, we decided to give it a try. It was probably the best cruise we have ever taken (and that is a lot of cruises). We boarded after a mandatory COVID test and stayed in our cabin until ...

A question of value

Review for a Greece Cruise on Wind Star

wandering_aimlessly
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We chose Windstar to cruise through the Greek Isles. From the beginning it seemed odd - we heard almost nothing from Windstar other than itinerary changes and information posted on My Windstar. When they removed our reservation from My Windstar about a week prior to sailing I had to call them to ask if the ship was still going and we were still on it. Apparently all reservations are removed in ...
