Review Summary

We \"Yachted the Mediterranean\" on the \"Windstar\" and had a great experience. The raising of the sails accompanied by very moving music is a memory that we will treasure forever. The staff was very attentive\, the food was excellent and the staterooms and common areas were quite appropriate. The ship even had a great medical doctor onboard. we met some wonderful people and thoroughly enjoyed our trip.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The variety of the menus\, schedule of times and the quality of the food itself was superb. However\, I did not care for the way Windstar dealt with accommodating people with special dietary requirements - I think the \"process\" could have been smoother.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
The same \"duo\" was the only musical entertainment every night. Other than the \"daily briefing\" there was little or no informational sessions/seminars on the regions we were visiting. The shore excursions were varied\, interesting\, and well run with the exception of \"time allotted\". Most excursions could have been a little longer to allow for individual exploration or shopping.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was exceptional in every way. They really helped to make the experience unforgettable.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great room - even better stateroom attendants!

Pros: The itinerary was awesome. Each day brought new and wonderful vistas outside our porthole.

Cons: The internet service was very disappointing as was the variety (or lack of) of entertainment/educational options on board the ship

Recommends Wind Star? Yes!
