First Windstar Cruise, A T-Atl

This cruise was thrust upon us. We had booked a mid-Feb cruise on the stretched Star Breeze from BCN to MIA but construction delays cancelled that a few days before Christmas. Since we were within 60 days of ...

Once more before the stretch

Two years ago Windstar announced the plan to stretch the Star ships increasing the guest capacity from 210 guests to 310 guests. We love the small size and hope that the increase in size doesn’t change the ...

Wonderful cruise, with a few glitches

This is basically a wonderful ship, with a few glitches. It was recently bought by Windstar and is due to a major renovation/refit in 2020, so these comments might not apply to later sailings. This is a small ...

Our first Windstar cruise & would absolutely do another one. Smaller ship a plus

Windstar has only 6 ships so and they are small ships focused on going to areas the bigger ships cannot get to. While the ship itself is a little dated, it is slated for a big makeover this summer which is ...

Windstar for Us — Alaska at its finest via cruise

This was our second Windstar cruise following last summer’s Norway/Iceland voyage which was marvelous. Sufficiently marvelous that we invited three friends from NYC to join us this time. We previously sailed once ...

Windstar keeps upping their game!

This was a "Star Collector" cruise, featuring two 9-day back to back itineraries. We chose the itinerary because the first leg featured visits to Madeira and the Canary Islands, neither of which are offered very ...

Bad Idea

We were very disappointed with this cruise. The food was of poor quality and boring. The breakfast and lunch area was in crowed space at the back of the ship and smelled of exhaust when the wind was in the wrong ...

Great ship, especially the cabin size.

Wanted a smaller, less crowded ship, as we are not fans of the 3000 person ships. This had an itinerary that was heavy in ports with many overnight stays in bigger cities. We do not prefer so many "at sea" ...

Wrong ship for Alaska and poor value for money

Star Legend is not suited for Alaska but rather warmer climates. For example the only indoor bar area, the Compass Rose, was so cold at night that they were actually handing out blankets to try and keep passengers ...

Alaska Cruise and Pre-Cruise Land Tour A Total Rip-Off

The pre-cruise land tour spent most of its time figuring out how to fill time instead of showing us the sights. The guide was less than knowledgeable. We paid a great deal, but were often told to go out and get ...
