Windstar was terrific. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Staff even knew us by name. Excursions were well planned with knowledgeable guides. Really enjoyed the small ship experience. We got to know other passengers. Very nice.
The room accommodations were exceptional and ALL staff were pleasant and helpful in every way possible. The food was very good and plentiful. Entertainment was good.
I was happy with my interaction with Affordable Tours. They responded quickly to any concerns we had. Our advisor gave valuable advice from his personal knowledge of the departure port.
Staff on ship were very courteous friendly and knowledgeable. Food was excellent and excursions every good.
The 9 or so hours Panama Canal transit is by far one of the most interesting cruising one can ever do. To see the cargo and container ships lined up for days to do this transit for close to 1 million US dollars - and that passenger cruise ships basically get to "jump the line"... it's amazing. The Windstar Pride, one of Windstar's yachts, is beautiful. The servicer by the crew, staff, and officers are top-notch. My mother and I were extremely fortunate to be asked to join the captain for dinner... and incredible experience which was a first for me. It will be interesting to see what is added after the dry dock work currently going on with their three yachts...an additional public room/bar/gathering spot near the main restaurant would be helpful and I would like to see an additional cooking/flower arrangement or some other type of interactive onboard activity added. All in all though, the cruise was excellent.
Wind Spirit cruises are the ultimate! You can't go wrong with them!
Windstar fits what we look for in a cruise. The service is excellent but it is not overly stuffy. Everyone from the captain to the deck hands were pleasant and helpful.
Loved working with our agent knowledgeable honest and cheerful. We absolutely loved our Windstar cruise!
This was our fifth Windstar cruise. They are consistently great!
The food was wonderful and the spa staff was excellent! Everyone on the boat was very helpful.
Cabin service was excellent. Food was the best that I have had on any cruise with any cruise line. Each meal offered a wide variety of entrees and all of the dishes were excellent with very nice presentation. All services on board were as expected. When the weather prevented a stop in Capri, Windstar quickly organized another stop at a nearby port. The "extra presentation" that Windstar provided in Dubrovnik was a pleasant surprise: wine and snacks in a park overlooking Dubrovnik followed by a native dance presentation. Only complaint I have about the entire trip is the ridiculous charge for onboard internet, $50.00 for 200 MB of data is outrageous! 200 MB of data will only get you a few emails which is pretty close to nothing. If Windstar does not change this service, they can write me off their list of prospective customers.
The cruise agent was excellent. she was very knowledgable and responded promptly to all our questions and concerns. She was warm and personable and a pleasure to work with.
WHAT A FABULOUS TRIP!!! THE SHIP (WIND SPIRIT) WAS AMAZING. SMALL AND COZY. EVERY ON STAFF CALLED US BY OUR FIRST NAME AND MADE US FEEL SO AT HOME. IT WAS A GREAT WEEK AND LOOK FORWARD TO SAILING WITH WINDSTAR AGAIN. PERFECT LOCATION AND PERFECT WEATHER. BEAUTIFUL SIGHTS. THANK YOU.
