Review summary

The trip on the Windsurf from Edinburgh to Dublin was truly a memorable experience. The ship's crew was fantastic--the provided 24/7 service and tried their best to mak everyday a wonderful experience...and they generally succeeded. The food was fantastic and if you dint gain 5 pounds...you must have been a very picky eater!! Choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner offered options to make everyone happy....plus the desserts were outrageous. My only concern is that the shore excursions were a bit over priced and did not always offer great value for the fees charged. The trip to Belfast was over $250 per person....3 hrs to get there and only 2 hrs in Belfast including lunch...and another 2 1/2 hrs to get back to the ship. No walking time or shopping time at all. Otherwise, a great experience and highly recommend it.

Ship tip

Go to breakfast early and dinner on the later side as 6:30-7pm is very business and rushed.
