Wind Star Cruise Review by cerulean.88.sky

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: the Eastern Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview Stateroom

This Windstar cruise was marvelous and well organized with exceptional service onboard. The room was exactly as advertised, very comfortable and nicely laid out. The food was consistently delicious (I especially liked that we had many options to choose from at each meal--healthy, decadent and in-between). Information on tour times, length of time in each port and the next day’s itinerary was presented each evening, and someone was always available to answer any questions we had. Loved the small ship experience with the limited number of passengers--it was easier to meet people and make friends. And the ship was well designed, we never felt cramped or like there wasn’t enough room. Amenities were good on a smaller scale, including a spa, gym, library/DVDs and free room service, although some amenities, like laundry service, were pricey. Several types of excursion options were offered at each port, but in some ports 30 people in a tour group was too overwhelming for the smaller shops and narrow streets. We enjoyed exploring on our own and felt like we had plenty of time in each port. Lots and lots of amazing, colorful photo ops everywhere we went! The Evening in Ephesus dinner at Kusadasi was magnificent and definitely one of the highlights of the trip. Other than the initial check-in, we experienced no long lines at meals, transferring from ship to ports, etc. Awesome!!

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom

Cleverly designed to maximize storage and living space. King size bed, porthole, chest of drawers, good closet space with lots of hangars, a small table with 2 chairs, and decent-sized stand-up shower. Very clean and looked like a fairly new renovation.
