Review summary

This was not our favorite cruise but still had a good time. We took 4 people with us which was their first cruise. It seemed a little more unorganized than others we have been on.

Wind Star Dining Room

Some food I didn’t care for when I tried it but it had nothing to do with the food or staff. It’s all about what a person likes.

Cabin / Stateroom

Very comfortable beds. Tv needs to be bigger. Had to lay at end of bed to see it. Other than that it was great. Loved the balcony.

Ship tip

Don’t let the little things ruin your fun.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

5 out of 5
Tender boat driver taking us back to ship was not very good. No staff was on platform where wheel chairs were sitting and the driver was in my option acting crazy. Wasn’t the water either because it had calmed down. People were having to jump up and catch sliding wheelchairs. The ride to princess Cays was during rough waters and that driver of the tender boat did a great job.
