Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2016
Cabin: Ocean View Suite
Entering the Panama Canal - what you can see at night (not much - shame on Windstar)
What we were able to see passing through the Panama Canal in the dark - as far a I know the canal is simply an endless string of red and green lights stretching as far as you can see each direction

Trip was a mess and WindStar management could care less - took six weeks to answer my letter of concern and the answer was all incorrect - they are now ignoring my follow up contacts

Basically the Star Breeze was dirty adn poorly managed with poor information flow to the guests

The Chef was great and food service was excellent as was the food - cabin service was poor and front desk and activity information was virtually non-existant

Cabin Review

Ocean View Suite

Cabin S3

Small but nice - not as well laid out as on the smaller sailing ships and the bed was too low to put luggage under cramping the room even more

Port Reviews

Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera)

Starting point of trip - nothing to do or see
