Wind Surf Cruise Review by Den II
- Sail Date: August 2019
- Destination: Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Oceanview Stateroom
Food: Amazing! Having read reviews, the food gets mixed ratings. I don't get it -- we are somewhat picky and it exceeded expectations (common theme). Our only gripe is that we needed reservations in the two higher-end dinner spots and many tables were open. Great variety and top-notch quality. I had steak multiple nights and on EVERY occasion it was prepared perfectly!
Service: Over-the-top! Andreas and his team were wonderful. They got to know us early in the cruise and went out of their way to make us feel like it was our private yacht. Andreas -- wow, he gave us such personal attention. We all said we will try to base our next cruise on his schedule.
Cabin: Again, prepared to be under-whelmed but was pleasantly surprised. Were were forward in cabin 151. Good sized, great storage, no issues. Would we rather of had a private balcony, of course. But no worries!
Entertainment: Understated but perfect! We had great evenings with the bands (some of us participated more than others (BK). The crew show was hilarious.
Water platform: SO MUCH FUN!! A great touch.
Size: Loved the size of the ship -- more than enough variety and the personal touches.
Atmosphere: Casual but not too casual. Perfect blend.
Gym: I used the gym most mornings. Great location -- all windows on the top deck. Enjoyed watching us come into port each morning.
Tips: buy the laundry package -- do NOT hesitate. We also purchased the full drink and wifi package. As reported, wifi is weak but that was more than offset by the drinks! Very good scotch selection. They purchased local beers at most ports. The wine selection is just adequate.
Aside from requiring dinner reservations, we LOVED IT! Highly recommended!

Athens (Piraeus)We stayed at the Royal Olympic Hotel in Athens the night before the cruise. OK hotel, not great. Very near attractions. GREAT roof-top dining with fantastic views. One day in Athens in more than enough.View All 1,227 Athens (Piraeus) Cruise Port Reviews

Walking TourThe walking tour was a perfect 1.5 hour experience. We then did self-guided walks. Rode the cable car to the top for lunch and then walked the wall. Loved this city! The ship had a late departure so we scheduled dinner in the city.View All 57 Walking Tour Reviews
Island TourRode a coach bus to multiple cities for mostly self-guided walking tours. Glad we did it, but it was very much a one-and-done experience. August is peak season and VERY crowded.View All 98 Island Tour Reviews
