Sail Date: May 2007

Having heard many good things about the WindStar, and having received many brochures and emails touting the Windstar difference, I was looking forward to our cruise from Athens through the Greek Isles to Istanbul. We also had friends who sailed on this same ship in Sept. 2006 and were very enthusiastic about their cruise.

Unfortunately, this cruise was our least favorite. In fact, we can say that we did not like the ship and felt it was highly over-rated and over-priced.

Let me preface this by defining our travel style. We are both 57, have taken 15 other trips to Europe ( and Morocco ) varying in length from 1 to 2 weeks. All have been land trips and only 2 were small group tours (Prague-Vienna-Budapest in 1996 and Morocco in 1998). I have usually arranged all our trips, transportation and sightseeing. We generally stay in a city for 5-7 days, and are used to being independent travelers.
