The antidote to big-ship partying madness by taines

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Wind Star / Destination: Caribbean

This was the best of 4 cruises we have been on, and we will never again go back to the big ships. Service was outstanding, there were no lines ever for food, and it was nice having just adults around without kids underfoot.

Exceeded our expectations by acemanuel1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Wind Star / Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

We were celebrating milestone birthdays and splurged more than usual.  One passenger had never been on a cruise.


Windstar Cruises strive to make every passenger feel special while delivering exceptional service and attention.  The staff gets to know the travelers and deliver a friendly and attentive service.


The itinerary included the popular stops like Santorini and Mykonos but it was the smaller ports and islands that charmed us.  The special event at Ephesus was a magical evening that few people would be able to access were it not for Windstar's arrangements.  The stop as Kusadasi, Turkey was another sleeper hit with many passengers.


Overall, the attentive staff, the accommodations on the ship and the itinerary made for an unforgettable experience we already long to emulate on a future trip.

Memorable Journey by dorismperry

Ship: Wind Star / Destination: Europe

Favorite part of the cruise was the special  event at the winery and the new friendships. Wish Wi-Fi was free. Maybe you could have it free for one hour a day.

4 Wind Star tips

Don't miss the ship board barbeque. Take advantage of the excursions which are usually very small groups.

The barbecue and special event made this cruise stand out. Once again we made lots of new friends.

Take advantage of the Laundry Service. It allows you to pack a lot less items (e.g. underwear, undershirts, socks) because you can have it delivered clean within 24 hours. It was a fantastic service.
