Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

This is our fourth, and now last, Windstar cruise. The ship, the Windstar, is run down and tacky. The food was awful. The equipment in the “gym” creeky and poorly maintained. Lastly the shore excursions were often boardering on worthless. Internet? $245 a week for minimal and often nonexistent service. And all this for a premium price. Windstar needs to up its game considerably if it want to play in the premium market. Right now it a mid level experience with a too high price tag.

Maybe it’s that the smaller ships aren’t as profitable but they have ignored the Windstar. When I complained, it took many tries to get an answer. The food was not fresh because we never docked in a port only anchored. Really? The poor satellite reception for the TV and internet was due to ground and sea interferences. Isn’t this 2019?

All in all, it’s time to move on from Windstar.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

Tacky tiny cabin. No where to sit except on the bed. The bathroom smells of old urine.
