Sail Date: Apr 2023
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

This was our 5th cruise with Windstar and our 2nd on the Wind Surf. Took this 4/30/23 sailing as it was as far out as our FCC would take us on the schedule. We knew the Spring weather could be a mixed bag (and it was) but that didn't damper our spirits or Windstar's casual elegance. Windstar consistently excels at great staff; they call you by name by the second day, excellent dining options; never a disappointing meal, and the size of ship that makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. Our cruise was only 3/4 full with 265 passengers so all areas of the ship were never over crowded. It is this small yacht feel that sets the Windstar's sail ships apart.

A nice advantage with Windstar is that both occupants of a stateroom don't need to purchase the all inclusive drink package. On this sailing I did and my wife did not. It was perfectly catered to the individual's preference. Very few cruise lines do this, nice touch.

Excursion options are numerous at each port and are of high quality but seem to be a tad on the pricey side. We did 3 of them and were very happy.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom

We like to choose a stateroom in the middle of the ship. Staterooms on all the sail ships are virtually identical, no surprises. We don't spend much time in our stateroom so the size is fine with us. Good storage for a finite space. Bathroom is well laid out, all the hot water and water pressure you would want.
