actually two pieces of advice: When docking or mooring watertight bulkheads are closed on first and second decks and most rooms are not accessible by elevator. as there are several doors fore and aft there are several compartments each with several rooms accessible by only one specific staircase. Remember which one! Ship is not designed for those with mobility issues.

Enjoy the small ship! The sails are not really functional.

One of our favorite things about the Wind Surf is the 'laundry program'. Such a nice perk waking up everyday to clean clothes. Allows us to pack less.

Wait until it is repaired...toilets were repaired 3 times A/C went out one day, hot water was intermittent.

Don't expect much from the Sails, Its it not like the Royal Clippers where you actually see them and the 1492 is played .

Do not buy the Internet Package its too expensive Stay away from booth and too much wine. Eat not too much. Make enough walks on deck whenever possible.

Small ship with very few to no activities during the day, don't think about this cruise if you're looking forward to bingo and shuffleboard.

Rooms style/sizes do not vary unless you are on the top deck.

Not your typical Cruise. Much more intimate !

If you want a ship with lots of activities, do not sail with Windstar. If you want a small ship experience that goes to interesting ports, quite often those ports the large ships do not go to, and you want a friendly staff and enjoy looking at lovely sunsets and the stars at night, then Windstar is for you.

The cabin on the second floor was extremely well laid-out. The only drawback was that there was no balcony, only a porthole. Since we only slept and got dressed in our stateroon, it wasn't a big deal and part of the bargain for having a smaller, more intimate cruise vessel.

Do it, it was so different to a cruise ship. Atmosphere is very relaxed Nd you are know by name by everyone, how, I don’t know! experience an open Bridge where you really can talk about the route, weather And see what a working bright feels like. Be part of a working yatch and really get to know other passengers. Take lots of books to read, sewing, painting etc to fill your days. Yoga and Pilates and stretches are not charged for.

The ship does not not dock at ports of call. You must go down a flight of ten steps to a platform on the rocking ship and transfer down another couple of steps into a rocking tender. Don't know what happens at the other end of the trip as I have limited mobility, was not informed of this feature of the cruise, and was unable to leave the ship for an entire week.

there are lounge chairs on bridge deck forward that always seemed to be empty

This is a warm weather destination ship. Designed for warm weather and life on the deck. If you have rain or inclement weather, it feels small and congested.
