This ship does not seem to have a lot of recent reviews so I will leave one. We did the 10-day Tuamoto cruise coupled with the regular 7-day Society Islands (Bora Bora etc.) cruise, so we were on the ship for 17 days in total. Another 20 or so of our fellow cruisers did the same thing, so we got to know a number of people during our time on-board.

We really enjoyed the itinerary, the crew, the islands, and the ship itself. No complaints on the food. I eat vegan so I had to work with the staff to get something to eat at dinner each day, but they were very helpful. Over time I hope Windstar adds a vegan option to the menu but since I was the only vegan on the boat I really could not ask for better service. Lots of veggies and fresh fruit made lunch and breakfast easy.

We booked a number of SCUBA diving excursions, with the ship for several and then one we booked on our own. We were on our own at Fakarava, where we dove with Kaina Plongee dive center. The diving there was amazing, as it also was on Rangiroa, Bora Bora, and Moorea. Booking with the ship is more expensive but it is very nice having a dive boat pick you up and drop you off right at the ship. Snorkeling is great too but if you are certified, I highly recommend booking as many SCUBA days as you can.
