  1. Hi there - we are in Colorado Springs. Do you know if they will deploy the sails during this transpacific? From what I can tell the trade winds seem to mainly come from the east unless I am reading it wrong?
  2. What is a good source of nautical charts to plot our course while crossing the Pacific from Tahiti to Costa Rica?
  3. I generally try to get at least 2c per mile. For economy this is $1629/68500= 2.3c, for Premium economy $2289/127000= 1.8 c per mile, and for Biz $4585/167000= 2.7. These are decent. Not great but decent.
  4. If cost is not an issue, go with the Penthouse Junior Suite or PV. All PVs are the same as far as booking excursions and specialty restaurants are the same. PV1, PV2, PV3 are all the same - only difference is location on the ship. I would not worry so much about specialty dining reservations unless you are really picky about when you want to dine.
  5. Are you sure he can get past it even without the bump out in a DV. It’s a pretty tight fit.
  6. I do need to apologize to all for the mistake of asking about opening the portholes. When I looked at images of the portholes I saw the hinges and clamps and assumed that they opened, with no idea that those were for the covers. I realize now that there is no way they would allow these to open! I am also assuming that one could close the covers on their own if they wanted complete darkness in the cabin? Nevertheless, we are looking forward to our first Windstar cruise and first sailing ship cruise in October!
  7. Thanks for sharing. I will have my cannon and oars ready!
  8. Thank you for the information. Now I get it. The portholes do not open but the covers may be shut in really bad weather.
  9. Has anyone done this tour from Puerto Caldera port to SJO? Looking for what time it drops you off in the airport. Can I make a 2:30pm flight out of SJO. The descriptions says 3pm or later. Hoping to avoid staying in a hotel that day and flying out the next day.
  10. Was it difficult to sleep with the waves hitting the windows?
  11. Sounds wonderful- thought the portholes did open?? did you arrive 2 days early? Did they end the cruise early?
  12. We are considering an ocean crossing on Wind Spirit from Tahiti to Costa Rica. For those that have gone on a transpacific or transatlantic crossing on the Wind Spirit or Wind Star small sailing ship, which is better - deck 1 or deck 2? There seem to be trade-offs - Deck 1 lower on the ship for less rolling, but Deck 2 for less splashing onto the portholes and perhaps more opportunity to open the porthole windows. How much does the deck matter in terms of rockng and rolling and how splashy does it get onto the deck 1 porthole windows while on the open sea?
  13. I started a roll call for this voyage. Please join the roll call if you are going on this voyage. We are Jim and Lynn and just booked it!
  14. We are seriously considering this cruise. Just wondering if we would like 21 days at sea. However being pampered for 3 weeks is not all that bad!
  15. Just saw these posts. We are contemplating this cruise but 21 days at sea on a tiiny ship!? Could be amazing or ....?
  16. From where to where were you sailing on those nights?
  17. What kind of snacks could you order? Do you just tell them where you are on deck?
  18. 1. Yes 2. they have an umbrella in each stateroom and a bunch on the gangway. They can run out but not too often. But they are huge and a pain to carry. I’d go with a small folding one. 3. Yes that is fine. Yes all venues same except World z cafe where shorts are allowed.
  19. We are booked in 215. It says noisyx2. Why would it be noisy? Cannot find the actual comment from anyone in 215.
  20. I thought the shower curtain was fine. Thick cloth. Not clingy.
