Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2011

We sailed out of St Maarten on the 10th of December 2011 for 14 nights through the Panama Canal and continued to Costa Rica in Central America.

Windstar as a company recently has had new owners and they are refurbishing their ships, not that the Windstar ship really needs it. Able to get into areas the larger even mid-size can not do.

Great food, even better service since we had only had 38 passengers instead of the 148 she holds. The cabins are identical on both decks, a little on the small size from the bed to the wall but still very luxurious. The bathrooms are a bit small but due to the round shower there is no elbow bumping with of lots of storage, counter and mirror area. Closets are Very roomy.

Cabin Review

Our Windstar ship being small with a dinning room that has single seating does not allow for the cabins to be larger unless the cut out a cabin or two on both sides of the deck.

Sorry I do not know the sq.ft but, it would be great to have ONE more foot between the bottom of the bed and the wall. Honestly I do not know how some of the "larger" guest get past. Two chairs would be nice instead of one ottoman that just gets in the way. Lots of closets space and there is great storage in the bathroom, counter space and mirror, including a magnifying mirror, wonderful, the round shower allows plenty of elbow space. Tight for two but it still works. All in all very comfy if you don't mind watching TV sitting on the bed.
