Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2018
  • Destination: Asia
  • Cabin Type: Balcony Suite

Just got off the wind star legend....wow...good thing they are taking this ship into reparations...

It has seen better days... No thermostats work in the suites, 1 ply toilet tissue, main dining room a/c stuck on coldest setting, so low , a large % of passengers got a cold in the first 3 days and passed it around for a week.

Outdoor seating on upper deck fine dining area had incredibly uncomfortable chairs, the skinny legs of the cheap seating kept getting stuck in the grates of the floor tipping them sideways.

The 'Candles' experience was 'filled" with reservations and when you got one ,you noticed very few people there because they were so understaffed...

Fillet mignonette was precut to 6 ounces , served medium to medium well no matter what you requested.

Service was spotty, some nights good, some you had to ask for water. Servers would often approach table interrupting guests in middle of a sentence..

Dining hours reflected the understaffing, very limited hours it became necessary to plan around so as not to run out of certain selections.

Room service menu was a set menu devoid of nightly specials...

Seldom could you make a selection where to eat...

Spectacular city.. 2 days is not enough here, War museum a MUST SEE, I allow many hours here, it will enlighten your prospective on war, the press, and government and military veterans' interpretation ....
