We booked two back to back cruises. The first cruise included the French Riviera, Monaco for the Formula 1 Race, Elba, and two delightful small Italian ports. The second cruise included Sicily, Malta, Sorrento, and Capri.
The ship is able to get into smaller ports and always has interesting itineraries. The ship is unique with sails which it uses frequently, although it has engines which assure that it arrives on time. The food is varied and excellent. The cabins are comfortable with adequate space.
The dining room has open seating which assures one of meeting other guests and making interesting new friends. The dress is informal. The service on the ship is friendly and excellent. The shore excursions are varied and well planned. Water sports are available when the rear sports platform is opened and lowered into the water. This was our 4th cruise on the Wind Surf and 12th on the Windstar Line. The Wind Surf has only 250-300 passengers and avoids the crowds associated with larger ships. One can actually get to know the fellow passengers.
Comfortable and adequate size. Handy bathroom and shower. Excellent service by cabin steward.
The harbor village is interesting and picturesque. One must visit the Lord Byron Grotto,
the Church on the point by the harbor and the fortress above the city. There are nice restaurants next to the harbor piers.
The city is large with a large shopping center near the port, but it is hard to find
an individual store. The harbor area was particularly congested because the Cannes Film Festival was going on while we were in the harbor.
