MVY Windstar - Barbados - Jan 5th 2016 - Caribbean cruise. Wonderful Cruise, wonderful people and staff, and a great ship EXCEPT for the noise in some of the cabins at night while underway. The noise is a very high pitched wine that makes it impossible to sleep. When we complained that ultimately moved us to a cabin much further forward, The noise was almost eliminated but still there. BUT you could sleep. Many people on the cruise complained of the noise and i think they played musical cabins because one couple that we talked to had complained and we found that they were going to be moved to the cabin that we had vacated!

What really bothers me and I find unbelievable is that the noise issue has been going on for about 3 years. That the company could rent out the cabins, cruise after cruise, and put their on board staff through the process of trying to appease upset customers every cruise is, to me, unprofessional at the best and disreputable at the worst.

The cruise itself was exactly what we'd hoped for - slow and relaxing. Stopping at smaller ports, not visited by the giant cruise ships, allowed you to see what the Caribbean was all about. A couple of days spent on a white sand, sun drenched beaches with lounges and cabanas supplied by the cruise line, with clear blue water to swim and snorkel in was our idea of paradise. This was capped of on one stop with a great BBQ lunch setup on shore.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin A

Cabin was very well maintained and very stylish. Ship is older but does not detract from the appearance of the cabin.

Noise level in Cabin 205 was unreal.
