It is probably the main sales argument that Wind Surf only carries around three hundred passengers. And the ship certainly has great potential. Unfortunately, that potential is not used fully. This cruise’s itinerary, the ship being only 2/3 full, took us from Lisboa to the Canary Islands with 2 stops in Morocco on the way. The small island of La Gomera was probably the highlight of the cruise with an overwhelming display of nature’s forces.

On the boat our impressions were quite divided: On the one hand there was excellent service staff, probably one of the most caring staff at sea, very good food and a very relaxing atmosphere. On the other hand the ship really, really needs someone from outside to take a look at all the work that needs to be done. The management, although all of them were nice chaps who were in constant interaction with the passengers have been on the ship for many years. It might just be operational blindness but it appeared to us that they just don’t recognize that many spots onboard need work to be done. Just a tiny example: To keep the door to the Verandah restaurant open staff put napkins into the lock. Not very professional, is it?
