This was our first voyage with Windstar and first on the Pride since it came over from Seabourn. This was our sixth cruise, having done Seabourn, Azamara, Celebrity, and Crystal before. The route was Singapore-Saigon-Nha Trang-Qui Nhon-Danang-Hanoi-Halong Bay-Hong Kong. Our priority was seeing Vietnam, and the ship's condition was of secondary importance to us. We kept our expectations in check upon boarding per the prior reviews of the ship. So, we ended up having an enjoyable journey and overall experience in Vietnam. Things to note:
- The ship was only half full, so we had lots of room and lots of attention from staff, who were exceptional.
-This was a holiday voyage, so crew made very nice Christmas and New Years Eve celebrations, in addition to a wonderful on-shore event in Hoi An.
210 was our first suite and it was actually very nice. A bit of stained marble in the bathroom, but otherwise fine. We had to move though when the tempered glass panel on our french balcony shattered. Our second suite was 216 and it was okay but had a strange uneven floor - like they hastily put down new carpet over rough subfloor without any padding. Some light fixtures near door were corroded due to salt air probably. Beds in both suites were comfortable and linens and bath amenities very nice.
