Sail Date: May 2017
Cabin: Suite

We have been on the Windstar Line's smaller wind yachts and wanted to experience the larger Wind Surf. With about 190 crew and 350 passengers the facilities and service were above and beyond what we expected. The slightly larger format allowed a little more space and enabled the provision of three distinctly different dining experiences.

The small size of the ship allowed it to anchor close to all the ports visited. The tender service was adequate with short trips due to the proximity to the docks.

The cabins are typical Windstar pattern designed by the French in 1986 and seemed to have been recently refurbished. They have plenty of storage and a small desk. The unique bathrooms had all new plumbing fittings with a thermostat that actually worked on the shower.

Cabin Review


Cabin S

Although a 1986 design, the cabins have been refurbished and offer plenty of storage a unique bathroom and good airconditioning.

Port Reviews

Rome (Civitavecchia)

We spent a few days in Rome to adjust to the time zone

Taormina (Messina)

A medieval city that is interesting with great views of the Med.


The wonderful town and the markets were a good insight into local life


As 70% of Dubrovnik was destroyed in 1993 it is wonderful to see the place has been faithfully rebuilt.. The cable car is worth the trip.


The old town of Split is very interesting. We could have spent more time here.
