  3. Wind Spirit
This was our fourth cruise on the Wind Spirit in Tahiti. We chose the Wind Spirit as the itinerary allows full days on four islands and two full days in Bora Bora. There are interesting shore excursions for those who want to be guided however we just choose to hang out at the ports and swim on the local beaches. There are three major events in the seven day cruise. The first special event is a dinner deck BBQ with the most amazing array of seafood and steaks to roasts and ribs. The evening ends with a crew line dance that is fun to join. The second event is a day on a private island where the crew set up a lunchtime buffet and a bar that fitted in with a day of swimming and snorkeling.The Captain and Hotel Manager participated in the greeting to the island and the food preparation. Amazing! The third and major event is on another private island in Bora Bora. Here the crew set up an evening buffet with local dishes such as the local Poisson Cru, a raw Tuna dish marinated in Lime and Coconut. The Tuna is purchased from local fishermen who deliver the fish directly to the ship.That night the festivities continued back on the ship for our sail away from Bora Bora headed for Huahine. While Windstar Cruises advertise one special event on this trip, I think that all three events are special and go far and beyond what one expects in this modern world of cruising.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom
Cabin A 231
The cabins are small and very well designed. The bathroom was fitted with all new taps and shower heads.Water pressure was good.
Lighting and and air-conditioning worked well.
All cabins have only two port holes that are cleverly set in a square window opening that gives an impression of a large window.
I suggest a forward cabin on this ship as the aft cabins do receive a bit of noise from the electric drive motor.
