First, we are a French-Canadian couple in our late 50’s/early 60’s from Quebec. We have sailed numerous times with Windstar since 2013 (4 Star Yacht Club members). All our cruises have been in the Caribbean with cruises on the Wind Star, Star Pride, Star Legend and Wind Surf. What we love about Windstar (and still do after 11 years of cruising with them) is the small ships, the fact you can do things independently easily, the relaxed dress code, the food (which continues to be excellent), and last but not least the great service staff which goes out of its way to make your cruise memorable.

This time around we did the 14-day Caribbean Explorations itinerary from Jan 6th to Jan 20th. The weather was mostly fine, however there were regular short and sometimes inconvenient showers which, luckily, did not impact any of the Deck and Beach BBQs. Seas were calm although trade winds were strong out of the East (Christmas Winds) for most of the cruise which prevented us from going into Falmouth Harbor, a recurring issue for us, a much more interesting port than the alternate and busy port of St. John’s we were diverted to (there were 3 other large ships with 10,000 pax on that day in town). Demographics on this cruise were mostly in the 70’s and 80’s (70% of clientele) with the rest in the 40-60 range plus a few honeymooners. On the second leg there was a corporate group of approx. 40 people which brought in a slightly younger crowd, but their presence did not affect the overall vibe of the ship. Windstar’s clientele is energetic and well-travelled, and we always meet interesting people onboard. We travelled as a couple this time around. Overall, another great cruise with Windstar
