Luxor was definitely the highlight

The voyage to "Arabia & Ancient Spice routes took place over 34 nights. In a nutshell: 1. Shore experience in Luxor was disappointing as the Windstar Luxor tour put the group up at the Hilton as opposed to the superb and historic Winter Palace. 2. Food management and organization was poor. The fruit was unripe during the entire voyage and they even ran out of bananas onboard when ashore ...

Disappointing end of trip!! The Sea Breeze, the food and the crew were outstanding (Athens to Venice, October 2015) BUT a tour we took in Venice at the end of the trip, supposedly of the little canals, which we feel should have been cancelled due to the weather, time of year (high water levels) and horrible water taxi was not--we paid for one itinerary, got another (a tour of a market and talk ...

I was looking for a luxury ship and this was not. I have been on Silver Seas twice and this did not even come close. The service was way below par. the food was bad more than good. For the first 4 nights my food was either under of over cooked. I had to ask 3-4 times every night to get some ice for the warm water they gave use with dinner. There is nothing to do at night. The last ...

Both ship and it's several facilities were so not ready for this trip. We were told at booking that this ship which has recently been purchased from Seabourn Cruises had had a complete refit....just not so. The swimming pool had rust surrounding all four walls and during the entire trip not one passenger was seen using it. The three jacuzzi pools were problematic as well. One never got hot enough ...

We chose this cruise line for two reasons: small ship and locations that we wanted to go to. The cruise starts in Athens and visits Greek Islands, and Turkish ports, ending at Istanbul. We got to all the ports that were planned and that part of the cruise worked well. The ship was small and that part worked well also. The problem is that the cruise line promotes itself as luxury, great service, ...

This trip was my 5th with Windstar Cruises. Since my first trip they have changed owners twice. The new owners have spent time and money renovating the public areas and keeping the cabins up to standard. However there needs to be a lot more effort, time and money spent on the decks to get the ship sailing again. Advising the passengers on the amount of time the sails were up is not sailing. I ...

Wanted a smaller ship for the Greek Isles. The crew was great. The bar service was slow. They needed more bar staff. Meals were adequate. Went to the Crystal Restaurant our last night and my husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal on the deck. Also, the dinner seafood bar b que on deck was excellent. All excursions and guides were good, well organized and informative. Our room 211 was ...

7 nite Athens Greece, round trip, 9/19 Cruise was fine, not unpleasant. Friendly crew, outstanding food and service related to food. Cabin comfortable but really missed having a private veranda (and just for the record, had one of us been quarantined here, as we observed happening to someone we had met, the same size and layout would have made for a miserable experience). Simple ...
