We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and we had been on 12 other WindStar cruises and had a good experience on all of them.
This cruise was different. The food was horrible- repetitive, lacking fresh fruits and vegetables with a high concentration of carbs. For breakfast we had cold scrambled eggs and cold sausages with canned fruit. I even found a hair in my food. Even the desserts were boring - mousse and more mousse and bread pudding every day. The exact same lunch was served two days in a row. The salad bar consisted of the same boring ingredients every day. The service has gone downhill and the ship was very tired looking. After 10 Days only a couple of the wait staff knew our names and they certainly didn’t remember our preferences. The gym was a disgrace with only one properly functioning bicycle and several mornings no towels. The public carpeting was stained with ares of fraying.
There were almost no activities on board. We had an extra sea day due to weather and the crew did nothing to fill the very long day. Everything is extra including a mandatory service charge All of this with an exorbitant price tag.
