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.
Food and Dining
The pool (small pool) wasn't open until mid-way through the cruise although the hot tub (cool tub) was open.
The crew talent show is not to be missed. And the deck barbecue is wonderful.
Service and Staff
The ship was wonderful and spotless and well designed.
Cabin / Stateroom
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.
Other passengers are generally well traveled and very friendly.
Ports Of Call
Not a good area. We just boarded the ship there. Spent a few nights in Panama City before and really enjoyed it.
Panama Canal Transit
Fuerte Amador, Panama
We saw the visitors centers of the old canal and the new canal. Enjoyed the tour very much, especially seeing the new canal.
ISLA PARIDA, PANAMA
Wonderful beach barbecue. Very well done.
Golfito, Costa Rica
Did not visit port
This was just a passport check stop.
PUERTO JIMENEZ (GOLFO DULCE), COSTA RICA
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
Went on the mangrove tour which was very enjoyable.
Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica
We just disembarked here.
Very easy. No lines. Luggage waiting for us and easy to collect.
