We have been on many Windstar Cruises and I have written many reviews. This trip we were on the refitted Wind Surf. The Surf is an old lady and she has aged well. We always admire her being maintained so well. The new lounge beautiful, new furniture in the Yacht Club lovely, new hall rugs in keeping with sailing and pretty, lovely waiting area for the Amphora, new comfortable furniture at Compass Rose. We did not see the new rooms but I assume they were great.
What we love about Windstar Cruises: easy embarkation, spacious rooms with plenty of storage space, great hot water pressure, plenty of shaded seating outside, great selection of healthy, varied food choices prepared well, no waiting ever, generous drinks, exemplary cleanliness, a fabulous, friendly, efficient crew, attention to safety. We also love small ports: Bequia, a favorite, Mayreau, fabulous beach, the Soufrière was a new port for us loved it being so close to the Pitons, Bonaire and Curaçao two of our favorite ports. Mix that in with a beautiful day at sea.
It was a great cruise, since life is not perfect were there some glitches yes, but who cares and who wants to blame, not us because being on the Caribbean Sea on a beautiful small ship is what sailing with WS is all about for us.
All ocean suites are the same. We love the bottom of the ship because of the gentle rocking and we never sleep better. We love the great hot water pressure, ample storage, cleanliness.
