We really wanted to do a cruise around Japan and found this was the perfect itinerary and a great chance to try Windstar for the first time. We are frequent cruisers on Oceania & Azamara with several cruises on SilverSea and Seabourn. Windstar really impressed us.
The ship was in great shape. We knew it was an "old" Seabourn yacht - so we expected it to be a bit dated. The soft goods all looked like they had been redone recently. In addition, the hard fixtures, etc were all in great shape - not something we were expecting.
We booked a regular Oceanview cabin. We were shocked at how big it was! Very spacious. In fact the picture window was larger than the openings of the French balconies on other cabins. We thought we would miss the fresh air as we typically book a balcony - but given it's such a small ship, you are never very far from the open decks.
really great! location perfect
nicely laid out
