Sail Date: Dec 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

This was our second New Year's cruise with Windstar & we love the casual atmosphere that you find on board. Last year we did the Windsurf out of St Marteen, it was outstanding this one not quite up to the same level. The one constant is the impressive personal service, most all of the staff will remember your first name, drink preferences, meal choices after just the first day. We even had some staff that remembered us from the first cruise we had in 2015.

If you suffer from motion sickness, this might not be the cruise to take at this time of the year. There were 2 long days at sea, 14 hrs or so and coming back to Barbados was uncomfortable for many even though we were headed into the 15-20' swells rather than taking them on the side of the ship.

Check in process very easy and quick. I would recommend making your dinner reservation for the Candles restaurant for an evening at anchor or a late departure, and make that res as soon as possible-it is very popular to dine under the stars & only accomodates about 30 guests.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin AX

Small at 188 sq ft, but lots of places to put your things. Enough outlets, very comfortable beds.
