This was a wonderful itinerary and a memorable voyage for many reasons.
After 2 days at a well-located hotel in London, we were transferred by motorcoach to Wind Surf at her dock at Portsmouth. Our ports in France were Cherbourg, St. Malo, and Brest. Cherbourg was the departure point for seeing the D-Day beaches and Sainte Mere Eglise, a very moving day. St. Malo is a great place to explore, and then explore more. Brest was my least favorite port on this itinerary; I enjoyed the castle, now open as a museum.
Our ports in Spain, La Coruna and Vigo, were both interesting with lovely walking and/or excursion opportunities. Walking La Coruna's 14 km. waterfront promenade is a great way to enjoy that lovely city.
This cabin location suits me perfectly, near the elevator for quick access to dining venues and upper decks. On the Windstar sailing yachts I'm happy with this lowest priced category of stateroom because I like the slosh of the ocean near the portholes, and it's very a quiet location near the bow of the ship.
