First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

My husband (46) and I (45) always said we would never cruise because we didn't want to be stuck with thousands of people. But, I discovered Windstar and we decided to book the newly renovated Star Pride since it only holds 312 passengers. I am so glad we did because this was the BEST vacation we ever had. We loved having an all-inclusive package without any added costs. We don't drink so we opted ...

We chose this cruise for Iceland and Greenland. Plus Canada. We circumvented Iceland and saw some highlights however in hindsight we should have joined the pre land cruise to see blue lagoon and the loop road. The excursions were a long ride from the port and the ports were middle of no where….yes that’s Iceland. The weather typical for region. Rain, winds then sun! ***NORTHERN ...

My wife and I recently enjoyed a cruise on the Windstar’s Star Pride. We had traveled on board the Seabourn Pride many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Let me make something quite clear, I did not expect Seabourn’s standards of service and cuisine on board the Star Pride. (See footnote for an amusing bit of Seabourn history.) They are different cruise lines and work to ...

Background • Over 600+ days cruising with Crystal Cruises from 1994 through February 2020. • Last cruised Windstar Cruises on the sailing yachts WindSong in 1993 and WindSpirit in 1995 when under previous HAL ownership. • Never sailed Star Pride under its previous incarnations as Seaborne Pride or as Star Pride prior to its “stretching”, so we have nothing to compare its previous ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our first cruise (ever), and it did not disappoint. We were hesitant to take any cruise because the idea of joining thousands of people on a ship did not appeal to us. When we ran across the smaller Windstar Star Pride online and its itinerary (Greece/Italy), we decided to take the chance. The ship has been beautifully redone to accommodate more passengers (up to 312). We were impressed ...

Sis is allergic to mold, fragrance and chemicals and our diet requires No salt: Windstar met and exceeded our highest hopes! The snorkel gear was great so in most ports we walked, took a water taxi or regular taxi to a beach, all beautiful! We booked an excursion with Joy’s tours Saint Lucia, an amazing boat ride to snorkel at the Pitons. Also stopped at Anse Chastenet, famous beach. Can’t wait ...

We were looking for a small ship and Wind Star seemed the best choice. We don't care for the mega ships. Star Pride cabins are suites nearly 400 as ft with living area, walk in closet, bathtub mini bar. Lovely lounges are spacious. Entertainment is live music and port talks, a few receptions. Crowd is mellow. No kids. Long days in port with easy on and off as there are only 200 passengers. ...

Windstar is definitely NOT a 5 star cruise line!

This is the first trip review that I have ever posted. I felt that it was necessary because of the extremely negative customer experience. First of all, I booked this cruise in February 2019. The cruises line claims that you get the best pricing when you book early. Not true. They discounted this cruise right after the final payment date by USD$1000 per couple. When we asked for a refund ...

We are long time Windstar cruisers. We have been on 15 plus cruises over 25 years. We have been through several owners and have been on almost all the ships. The quality of everything ebbs and flows but the consistently fabulous, warm and friendly crew keeps us coming back. This particular cruise was a standout. So many things have improved....the food was better than usual and in some cases ...

Disappointing Windstar

We chose this cruise on recommendation from our travel agent. We flew to lovely Lisbon a few days beforehand, the joined the ship,looking very tiny berthed near some very large cruise ships. The welcome was decidedly perfunctory, and we found our way to our deck 4 cabin. It was pleasantly large, but definitely needed a good spring clean. The bed seemed hard and sagging, not a good start we felt. ...
