I chose this cruise because my usual island vacation had to be cancelled due to the hurricane damage. I thought I would never go on a cruise. The thought of a floating city with lines a mile long are not my kind of vacation. I like the small quaint island with no more than 5 -6 people on the beach.
Even though I have no other cruising experience to compare this to, I am a convert. Windstar spoiled me and I loved it.
Rooms were great, food was great, entertainment was great, and staff were fabulous. The only thing I would change about it is the check out time on disembarkation. It is too early. It would be nice if they could bump it up an hour or two to 10:00 or 11:00 am. Most people have a long day of travel and having to get up early and put luggage outside your cabin at 6:30 AM in unreasonable.
Satisfied with the cabin.
Friars beach is a lousy beach.
Pigeon island and so so.
Locals or french tourists were not friendly and encroached upon us at the beach.
Had to use credit card. Exchange rate not in american's favor.
