9 days "Sicily Splendors" was purchased in June 2016. We cruised on Windstar (Windsurf) before and knew about the warm crew approach, amazing food, long staying in the ports and all the other things smaller ships can offer.
We were in the different parts of Italy many times but not in Sicily. So the decision was easy.
Embarkation was smooth and easy. We were upgraded to a higher deck - which was a nice surprise. Cabin was clean and kept clean all the voyage.
The dining on Windstar ships is the one of the best you can get on a cruise ship. All the time 5* - breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, BBQ event - everything!
The ports were interesting for us as I've mentioned. All around Sicily plus Malta and Gozo (small island next to Malta). Unfortunately due to the weather conditions in Gozo captain decided to stay one more night in Valletta so we couldn't see Gozo. But safety first and we spent a wonderful one more day in Malta - which was nice :)
Special event was very well organized. Additional point to the Team.
Miss the ship already and dream to come again! :)
Very well located - close to the stairs and elevator, backside platform, tenders. No noise from the engine. Would be happy to stay in the same cabin.
Rome is Rome :)
