DO NOT BOOK this directly with Wind Star. Once they reeled you in, they never treated you like the customer. We found out other guests paid way less when they booked last minute. We paid top dollar only five months before the cruise and offered us nothing except a small credit to be used only on the ship. Nothing compared to the 66% less than other passengers paid. Moreover, when Wind Star offered to give rebates because they changed their itinerary - they strung us out months and months on reimbursing us. The office staff is patronizing and nasty and simply refused to honor their representations that they would reimburse airline changes.

The actual trip was fine but with all the head aches dealing with them - go else where. Food was good. Ship is so small that there are no perks whatsoever. I didn't mind that however, the excursion arranged by them were not worth the charges. Simply arrange your own for a huge amount less than what they offered. Also, last minute changes to the islands visited were met with nothing except: its too windy!

I don't think any cabins on this trip were "special" they seemed to all be small with only a few windows which you couldn't even really see out of
