Sail Date: Nov 2014
Cabin: Oceanview Stateroom

A wonderful trip on Windstar. Embarkation is so easy and the updated rooms were beautiful. Though smaller than some rooms on larger lines we never felt cramped. Lots of time spent on deck.

We left Lisbon to sail the coast of Spain to the Canary Islands. Weather in early November was on the cooler side but never cold. Early November in the Canaries is perfect weather actually.

One port was Casablanca for Marrakech. We did our own excursion with another couple we were traveling with and it was very nice, especially as Marrakech is 2 hours inland from Casablanca. Traffic in Casablanca was horrific, ships excursion was very late returning. One this Windstar did was keep the main dining room open a few hours after main seating to accommodate the late arrivals, so they didn't miss dinner. It's those little touches that makes Windstar so special.

Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin B

Nicely updated room. Next time I would pick front of ship rather than back to alleviate vibration

Port Reviews


Very easy city to get around in. Relatively inexpensive. I highly recommend the hotel we've stayed twice at, Castelo de Solar. It's a lovely, tranquil setting up by the Castle. There's a lovely winebar just outside the castle gates also we've been to twice.
