This was our first small ship cruise, and we enjoyed it. The onboard experience was excellent. However, I’m not sure I would book another cruise on Windstar, due to the multiple frustrations of dealing with their business unit.
The cruise itself was great. We loved the spacious cabin, with the biggest bathroom we’ve ever had on a cruise ship — double sinks even! The walk-in closet was great for keeping things organized. We didn’t miss having a balcony as much as I’d expected. The toiletries were lovely L’Occitane products. We did learn to shower at less popular times if we wanted hot water.
I especially appreciated the unlimited laundry package. For a very reasonable $10 per day per cabin, we were able to reuse clothes as often as we wanted, and to arrive home with a suitcase full of clean clothes, not nasty smelly ones.
