Having planned this trip 9 months ago, and having been on Windstar before, we had been looking forward to the Star Legend. We were not disappointed. The itinerary is interesting, From Reykjavik to the Faroe Islands, the Shetlands, Norwegian fjords and Copenhagen. We planned our excursions carefully and chose to take the Windstar Cruises offerings, although the tours are on the expensive side (par for the course in cruise companies and not unexpected). For the most part we found these informative and good with excellend guides, with one exception. When we (and several other passengers) complained about the quality, the line gave us a 50% discount, which was fair and unsolicited. Boarding and leaving the ship at each port was handled efficiently and relatively fast.

We arrived in Iceland 3 days early and spent them touring around the Southern part of the country. The weather was good to us and we were lucky to have mild, clear days. The weather throughout the cruise was fairly good. Having sailed the North Sea before, I expected some rough weather, but it was calm throughout the cruise. There was very little rain even in the Faroes, and very mild.

We boarded the Star Legend and were immediately impressed and pleased with the ship. We did not find the ship to be tired, despite the fact that it has been in service for some years. Our cabin, a BS1 category, was unexpectedly large and very comfortable with a soothing beige and blue decor, plenty of storage including a walk-in closet, large bed, good size bathroom with shower (my only caveat - the shower head is ridiculously located in a corner, necessitating one to cram into the corner to get under the jet), and best of all, a sofa and two armchairs. The Bose speakers were a great addition and my husband immediately connected his phone with music. The TV was smallish, but we are not great addicts, so didn't mind.
