Review summary

First time cruise on windstar and now wont cruise anyone else. Ship was very clean. Had booked lowest end room and it was quite large. Loads of included amenities from free snorkel gear to stocked beverage refrigerator in room, coffee bar, speciality restaurant etc... Loved not being nickeled and dimed to death on board. The port talks every night actually gave you tips on what to avoid on the islands and what to see rather than shilling their excursions or on land vendors. Their excursions by way had the lowest markup I had seen from any of the big cruise lines I had been on. They opened up the back of the boat on port days and you could take out all their water toys free of charge paddle boards, kayaks , hobie cats etc...On St. Lucia Day they held a big BBQ on land with sit down meal, beach umbrellas, water toys with some of the best snorkeling on the trip. They also took us out on tubing runs with speedboats. Once again this was all free of any extra charges. If you want onboard entertainment(shows, bingo) etc) this cruise line is not for you. Food was five star!! The menus were well planned .
