Cabin: Oceanview Stateroom

This cruise was our first one on Windstar and our 15Th overall . We had been to Croatia on a Costa cruise last November but it was pouring rain in Dubrovnik and what we saw of that city decided us to take whatever opportunity to come back . Windstar provided it with a cruise on the Wind Surf at a good price .

Our criteria of selection for a cruise are normally the following : 1) itinerary, 2) value ,3) ship . In this case , cruising on a sailship created an additionnal incentive.

Embarkation port was Venice . We were impressed by the ship even before setting foot on it ! It did look magnificent with its tall five masts and being docked at the San Basilio terminal , on the Canale della Giudecca , did create a romantic effect . The embarkation process was very fast and within 20 minutes, we were in our cabin . At 188 square feet , it is one of the most spacious we have had so far . There is a lot of storage space and it is very easy to circulate in the cabin .

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin B

We had an outside cabin on the lowest deck which is a plus on this ship since the view at sea level is very interesting and very hard to get on other ships ! Even if the ship in 20 years old the cabin does not look this age and the decoration is very modern .

The bed was very comfortable and two different types of pillows were provided ! It is very easy to circulate in the cabin and the temperature is also easy to adjust ! The TV is flat screen but choice of stations is limited ! There is an i.pod sound system in every cabin and it is of good quality once one learn how to use it !

A lot of storage space and the layout of the bathroom is efficient ! The only negative point is the noise coming out of the acclimatization system !

Overall one of the best cabins we have had so far !
