Sail Date: Nov 2015
Cabin: Balcony Suite

What can corporate Windstar be thinking? Just got off the Star Legend, the most dangerous and old ship I have ever sailed on in 30 cruises. No safety signs (even for wet paint and varnish), tenders don't work, people are expected to climb dozens of stairs to tenders and hop onto poorly parked and operated tenders - both of which are now broken - and rubber dingies. A nice but in some cases inexperienced crew can do nothing with awful, unsafe, old equipment. And it was a rocky and sea sickening ride more than 1 night. Also, ship does not port where anyone else does and doesn't tell you before hand. No board games onboard or daily activities. What a nightmare. RUN AWAY from this "luxury" cruise.

Most annoying things:

Used balcomy stateroom next to mine to store and fold sheets. Left door open at night to bang open and close; also went in and out at all hours. WHAT?

Cabin Review

Balcony Suite

Cabin BS1

Clean. But mold on shower walls. Also could not stand the "pilled" sheets. Nasty.

Port Reviews

St. Maarten

Had to take a 20 mile cab ride to Phillipsburg because Windstar does not pay to stop in the port. Instead they anchored way off in the water by Marigot.


Parked miles away from Tortola in the ocean. Guess they never pay docking fees. So I could't get there.

Virgin Gorda

The Baths were on the intinerary, but the ship went no where near them. So you could not get to them. Excursions were small and expensive, but having been there I really wanted to go again. Did not happen.
