Cabin:

My sisters and our husbands, all fans of Windstar Cruises, decided to spend Christmas together on our favorite ship The Wind Surf. We made the reservation when the vaccinations were discovered.

A joyful start for all, everyone, passengers and crew alike were so happy to be on again. The ship looked great, food outstanding, the perfect service that we all have experienced, terrific Captain, terrific Julien , the hotel manager, the doctor magnificent, the heart felt stories from the crew and their lives at home without work. Truly happiness abound.

Anyone who went on this cruise without being flexible should not have been on, given the likelyhood of change, given how fast this virus spreads was not remote. In emergencies the Ports rule. When the first people were discovered the Captain made adjustments in the schedule. They were left off in Barbados. The joyous times continued. Beach excursions, beach barbecue all terrific. Great holiday meal menus. The passengers obeyed the rules. We were tested almost daily, organized and efficient, maybe took 10 minutes out of the day. Then Christmas Night at 9, while having a delicious dessert, Bûche de Noël, we received the announcement the cruise had been cancelled due to too many positive people and we were returning to St. Martin. The next day I was tested and another person in my party we were positive with no symptoms . Safety, rapid changes were made for the good of us all. While in quarantine staff checked in on us, menus were brought, delicious hot food was delivered, service rapid, etc.

Cabin Review

We were upgraded to a suite, absolutely fabulous. We realized we can not go back despite that we have always loved the cabins given that this was our 26 th time with WS and had never experienced a suite.
