The main problem with Windstar, confirmed many times over by other guests onboard, is that their office NEVER responds . If you have an issue, and you will have because they have some serious internal communication issues, forget reaching them by phone, email, mail, or fax. Yes, tried them all. You leave voicemails, they go un-answered. Emails to multiple addresses...forget a response. You ...

What a Disappointment

Review for Star Pride to Greece

We had never cruised before, and I thought that the "brand new" Star Pride would be a good option to take to see if we liked cruising. First let me say that the staff is top notch and five star in every way possible, and in no way does this review reflect on them. Rather, it is corporate management, Hans Birkholz et al, that is receiving this one star rating (and I am being generous). Shame, ...

Do not cruise on this ship until Windstar has totally updated and repaired this ship, which as the crew told us all needs to be done in dry dock. In brief, the physical plant is deplorable. It is our strong opinion the Xanterra group who took ownership of this ship earlier this year made a poor strategic decision to commission this slightly remodeled vessel realizing the ship was not ready to ...

We chose this cruse for a birthday celebration and we were already in Greece. We were looking forward to sailing under sail, even if briefly. They play loud music to accompany the raising of the sails, then take them down straight away. No lift on this older boat and a lot of stairs to get to dining room, etc. Our room steward was excellent. Food was very good and BBQ on deck lovely. ...

Booked this cruise due to itinerary and being a small ship. The whole cruise was terrible starting with the ship not arriving into New York at 1 pm instead we boarded at 11.30 pm. Our first port of call was cancelled with a $55 refund ! Very little to do on board on the sea days. Food very average and sometimes cold. Shore excursions over priced and poorly run with guides that did not speak ...

This is our fourth, and now last, Windstar cruise. The ship, the Windstar, is run down and tacky. The food was awful. The equipment in the “gym” creeky and poorly maintained. Lastly the shore excursions were often boardering on worthless. Internet? $245 a week for minimal and often nonexistent service. And all this for a premium price. Windstar needs to up its game considerably if it want ...
