Quick background. This was our 46th cruise, the 3rd on Windstar. We treated my son and his family so they could experience a 5-star cruise line. Windstar didn't disappoint!

Flying from Charlotte, NC no problem to St Maarten. Customs there was very slow but the transfer to the ship was fine. Checked in at the cruise terminal and showed our vaccination paperwork & passports again and found out there were only 183 passengers on a ship that holds 342. Off to the Wind Surf and checked at reception. No glass of champagne, and was offered a bottle of water which we declined. Escorted to our cabin, #245, with the family. We had 3 cabins in a row and met our cabin steward, Toya. Toya did a great job always with a smile. Sail away was great with the music and the unfurling of the sails as we left St. Maarten.

We had dinner in the main restaurant, Amphora, and afterward explored the ship. Our previous cruises on Windstar had been on the smaller ships, Wind Song & Wind Spirit. More about the cabins later.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

Basically the same size cabin as the Wind Spirit but a different layout. On Wind Spirit there is a small table for two for room service meals. The Wind Surf only had a desk, no table for room service. The bathrooms were the same. Lots of storage space. You need to bring a multi-socket extension cord as there is only one outlet by the desk. One other thing, if you have a cabin on deck one or two, you will have to contend with the water-tight doors being closed during docking or anchoring. This means you have to navigate up a deck and down a set of stairs to get to your cabin. Takes a day or two to figure out which stairs to use.
