Review summary

Wonderful cruise!!!! Highly recommend Windstar. The service and organization is top of the line and the small size ship is something we particularly enjoy.

Excellent. We were checked in and taken to our cabin very quickly. We made spa reservations right away so that we could get our choice of times and treatments.

The pool (small pool) wasn't open until mid-way through the cruise although the hot tub (cool tub) was open.

The cabins are huge and we didn't miss having a balcony. Lots of storage room including a walk-in closet, a nice bathroom and plenty of space.

Not a good area. We just boarded the ship there. Spent a few nights in Panama City before and really enjoyed it.

We went on the tour of Gardens and Beach Scapes. The tour was really just the gardens which were beautiful and the beach scapes were just the boat ride to the gardens and back.

Puerto Quepos, Costa Rica
