Sail Date: Sep 2015
Cabin: Ocean View Suite

My wife and I and another couple chose this cruise for the timing, the itinerary, the small ship and the food/wine theme. We had all used Windstar before (Windsurf) and loved it.

As other reviewers have testified, this cruise was marred by engineering malfunctions, and was less organized than one would expect on a luxury cruise.

The pre-cruise experience was mixed; we booked over a year in advance, and were told we would be able to benefit from any subsequent price reductions. I had to be very alert and very assertive to get these, though. Had I waited until the last minute to book, I would have saved some money (but that is not really practical because of the need to plan ahead for this major a vacation).

Ocean View Suite

Cabin S3

Fine, roomy.

Port Reviews

Dover

Did not spend time here. We stayed in London and hired a driver to take us to Dover.

Saint-Malo

I love oysters, so enjoyed this one a lot. We explored St. Malo on our own and that was fun.

Bordeaux

Fun to explore on our own. The ship docked right in the middle of downtown area.
