Sail Date: Mar 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

We had been looking forward to something really special on this "Bucket List" cruise, and for the most part, we were not disappointed.

Quality of food, service, ship, cabin and excursions was generally excellent. We especially loved the beach party and the deck BBQ (I love lobster!).

Was it the definitive, earth shattering, "OMG, I'm never cruising mainstream again" experience? Probably not. In fact, I doubt we would go to the extra trouble and expense of sailing with Windstar again.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin BX

Cabin #328 was a nice, big cabin - with a comfortable sitting area and two bathrooms.

The two picture windows shown on the website are actually two sets of two portholes - that look out into a deck light that is never turned off. Lots and lots of closets and drawers.

The least enjoyable part of our cruise was actually our stateroom. We had a lovely double room-suite that was spacious, comfortable and well appointed. Trouble is, we couldn't spend any real time reading and relaxing because there was a loud blower that ran constantly. We asked maintenance, and they said it couldn't be turned off, and other passengers mentioned similar situations in their staterooms and in staterooms on other Windstar ships. There were two thermostats in the room, but adjusting them made no impact on the actual climate in the room. There seemed to be a daytime temperature of too cold, and a night time temperature of too hot. One afternoon, we actually had to go on deck when we began shivering after an hour of reading in our lovely, but very much refrigerated, cabin.
