I chose this cruise because a) I am hooked on Windstar cruises and b) I wanted to see what an ocean crossing is like. Wow, wow and wow! I loved this adventure....14 days on the open sea, whale and dolphin sightings, fun and games and the BEST customer service you can imagine.
I traveled on the Windsurf last fall and was sold on Windstar cruises already. An ocean crossing is different from a cruise with ports-of-call. The Star Legend is a beauty of a ship with a crew to love. 139 pax. (22 solo) and 150 crew left San Juan on April 9 and arrived in Lisbon on April 23. The cruise exceeded my expectations in almost every way. ( weather could have been just a little better).
I was a solo traveler, but quickly found dining partners by asking to be seated at a large table. Merrick, dining Officer, was extremely accomodating and genuinely cared about guests' happiness.
I loved my cabin! Midship on the 6th deck, with shower only. I did not care for a tub, and enjoyed the large shower with excellent water temp and pressure. I loved spending quiet time in my cabin watching a movie, or having coffee on the sofa, gazing out the large picture window. My steward, Marsuni, was so sweet and attentive. If I left my cabin for even 30 minutes in the morning, with the Make Up Room sign out, I would return and it would be done!!
