We traveled w. Star Pride from Aruba through the Pan.Canal at the end of Nov. 2015 - We have cruised w. Windstar 4 prior times on their sailing ships and have been happy.
This yacht is one of 3 that were bought and put into service this past year. In case of Star Pride, it should have never been put into service before refurbishment and updates.
Cabins were very nice, but public spaces were not in good shape at all. The deck had not seen any teak oil in ages, chases were old, stained and service f. drinks was infrequent. Food and menu was mediocre, their breakfast area (Veranda) was inadequate and due to the high temps and humidity (not their fault), it was always too crowded. Furniture lacked in style and quality in and outdoors. Selection of food was limited during breakfast and lunch and mostly not very varied. The issue of food selection quality is a corporate issue, chefs do not buy en route (or at least very little). 2 desserts and cookies at lunch was maximum.
