I have sailed on the Wind Surf many times, and have 4-Star Yacht Club privileges. But my past voyages have always been with my wife and sometimes with another couple. I have planned many group travel adventures for my sports club (Ski Club of Washington, DC) and decided to give Windstar a try. I contacted Amy Conover, who is a Director of Charter and Incentive Sales, whom I had previously met on the inaugural cruise of the Star Pride. Amy referred me to Jennifer Brewster, who was my Planning Coordinator. Jennifer did an amazing job for us, and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

We had 20 in our group, including 6 that flew in from Portugal to attend. There were only 3 couples in our group; the rest were single travelers, some of whom had never met previously. Jennifer arranged a private cocktail party for us, and the ship's Maitre d' Hubert coordinated our table seatings. The entire crew seemed to know who we were, and greeted us by name whenever possible. Several passengers asked me "who ARE you guys? " Everyone in our group greatly appreciated the attention and gracious service.

The Wind Surf also offers a small private party just for single travelers, as well as receptions for new and repeat customers.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom

The cabins on the Wind Surf have not changed much in many years, but they still appear to be fresh and inviting. The closet hanging space is fairly small, but I have learned to stow the away provided bathrobe to make extra room. My luggage easily fit under the comfortable Queen bed. The compact bathroom has a neat shower with a pull-out clothesline for drying a swimsuit. Toiletries are provided by L'Occitane (I love the Lemon Verbena scent). The blackout curtains really do block the light completely, but the light switches are conveniently located next to your pillow. My only complaint is that there is only one 110v outlet at the desk, so I had to switch power to my electronic devices regularly.
