Review for Star Pride to Caribbean - All

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

My husband (46) and I (45) always said we would never cruise because we didn't want to be stuck with thousands of people. But, I discovered Windstar and we decided to book the newly renovated Star Pride since it only holds 312 passengers. I am so glad we did because this was the BEST vacation we ever had. We loved having an all-inclusive package without any added costs. We don't drink so we opted ...

My wife and I just sailed on the Windstar Ship which left Athens Greece October 14 2022 and we ended in Rome, Italy for our honeymoon. This was by far one of the best vacations that we have ever had! I have traveled on other Windstar ships in the past (Wind Surf- Caribbean) and this one was just as great. The staff was very attentive learning everyone's name day #1 and extremely accommodating ...

We sailed with the Wind Surf on Sicilian Splendors ( Oct.6, 2022) The name of the itinerary was incorrect on the form to write this review. We reserved this trip 2020, 2021, and finally we were able be on the Surf this October. Three years of waiting with anticipation and indeed it did not disappoint. Everything about the Wind Surf that we love was out in full force: superb staff, beautiful ...

We have been trying to sail the Classic Dalmatia and the Croatia Coast itinerary since COVID and I'm so happy our dreams finally came true! We have been lucky to sail on Windstar on a previous 6 cruises so it was like coming home! This time around we booked Cabin 146 (this was our 3rd attempt at this specific itinerary). We typically sail aft so I wasn't very excited about being so far forward ...

Review for Star Breeze to Pacific Coastal

Before the pandemic, we took many cruises including 10 on Windstar. While we also enjoyed sailing on other cruise lines, we choose Windstar mainly for dining and relaxing. We loved the elegance and size of the Star ships before the stretch. When we heard that the ships were being stretched, we wondered how it would change the ships. Would there be enough space to accommodate more passengers? ...

Our experience started out really rough at the Port in Vancouver. No one seemed to know what the heck was going on and where to send us. There was a lot of walking involved and a lot of waiting! We arrived two hours after our embarkation time and still had to sit and wait at least 45 minutes to board. We found there to be little to no direction throughout the cruise. When in port they ...

We previously cruised with Windstar on their "Dreams of Tahiti" itinerary and loved the entire experience. Both ships on our cruises were Star Class ships meaning all of the rooms were suites and everything is in a larger scale than their sailing ships. This second time around we were less than impressed. It all started with the help line dedicated to the cruise line. No one could verify if we ...

We chose this cruise for Iceland and Greenland. Plus Canada. We circumvented Iceland and saw some highlights however in hindsight we should have joined the pre land cruise to see blue lagoon and the loop road. The excursions were a long ride from the port and the ports were middle of no where….yes that’s Iceland. The weather typical for region. Rain, winds then sun! ***NORTHERN ...

My wife and I recently enjoyed a cruise on the Windstar’s Star Pride. We had traveled on board the Seabourn Pride many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Let me make something quite clear, I did not expect Seabourn’s standards of service and cuisine on board the Star Pride. (See footnote for an amusing bit of Seabourn history.) They are different cruise lines and work to ...
