Choose because it's a small yacht. This cruise is great. Went to several ports Portoferraio , portofino, Monaco, Cannes, sanary sur mur, port vendres and Barcelona. The ship is refurbished and especially nice in public areas. The service and staff and officers were very professional and visible. The food from breakfast to dinner and yacht club choices were amazing. If you have any special requests all you have to do if ask. The BBQ onboard is a treat don't miss it. The entertainment in the lounge is nice but there is no bar...but u can order from the staff. I like the lounge on windsurf because you can sit at bar and mingle and there is a nice dance floor. It has a more inviting atmosphere for socializing. We used room service for breakfast twice when we wanted to get off ship by 9:30. Service and food are great. The tours are expensive so choose carefully. We were 4 people so we arranged 3 private tours with a driver who showed us the sites for 7-8 hours each tour and cost less than through WS. We played the slots in a small casino two nights and did a little onboard shopping. This cruise is the best way to experience the Italian and French Riviera. Your hotel floats with you. Good food, beautiful yacht with all the amenities and NO CROWDS, PS...I lost my medication and the ship physician was able to write scripts and also had on handa few meds to hold me over.( charge was very reasonable ). This was very helpful when you rely on daily medication. Read Less

We chose this cruise because it was going to a part of the world (Sicily and the Amalfi Coast) we had not yet seen and we had enjoyed our last Windstar experience. This ship accommodates @200 people and that's the size cruise we thought we would like. We had a wonderful time. Our cabin was very spacious although there were a couple of minor annoyances. The air conditioning controls did not work. The cabin was quite cold or too warm. This was corrected, but only after 4 requests. We lost running water on 2 occasions due to a broken pipe. The sailing was very smooth with the exception of one evening. The food was excellent in the dining room and outstanding in Candles (the specialty dining room) Candles specializes in grilled meats and fish … the veal chop is exceptional. For a small ship the recreation area is very nice. Plenty of lounge chars on 2 levels, a hot tub and a small resistance swimming pool. The ship is kept quite clean. The crew is very friendly and dedicated to making sure you have a good time. For us the cruise was enhanced because we met so many wonderful people. The first day of the cruise was at sea and by the end of that day we had met several couples who we continued to spend time throughout the cruise. I think a few of them, will remain friends for a long time to come. Read Less
