We cruise often on Seabourn, and other lines) but wanted a port intensive cruise of Vietnam and liked the 10 day itinerary of Hong Kong to Saigon. We had been on the Pride twice before under Seabourn and liked the ship so chose it for our first Windstar cruise.
We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the Windstar experience. The food compared to Seabourn, the staff were responsive and cordial and the informal dress code was much to our liking.
Two areas of concern, the outside maintenance of the ship is lacking. We never saw anyone with a paint brush although rust spots permeate the ship. ( This never happened under Seabourn). Also, the cabin housekeeping staff seemed very stretched and we would go away for several hours but our room still wasn't made up. This despite the ship being only 75% full. Another annoyance was the dining room never was open for lunch and the Verandah became very crowded as the only venue, especially on sea days.
