  1. Look at British Airways. I don’t know your dates or criteria, but you can get RT in Basic Economy for as low as $524.00 RT. Make sure you understand the restrictions of these tickets. my DD and I are going to the UK this spring on BA and paid $325 per ticket. We did pay a small fee to choose seats, but can manage just fine with carry ons only.
  2. Totally agree with you, Chipshot. My first two cruises, beginning in in 1988, were on the Wind Song, and this was my favorite ship. Don’t know when I will be back on a cruise again, life has changed a lot for me, but would definitely favor the Wind Star now over any other ship.
  3. “Subject to litigation?” Does everyone consider legal action for everything? I hope not.
  4. I have taken one Christmas Market cruise on AMA. We never had free drinks one hour before dinner, just free wine and beer with lunch and dinner. I would not say the food, service or anything else was like Windstar at all. My DD really wanted to take this cruise, and we did have a good time, but it was one of my least favorite trips.
  5. I think parent of the problem with inaccuracies of cruise histories may because they have had so many owners. My first WS Cruise was in 1988, and my cruise history was short by at least four cruises. Hard to know exactly because it covers such a long time period. That said, I am not sure it makes any difference.
  6. Yes, you can have a free stopover in Porto or Lisbon. They had a great Cyber Monday sale that ended yesterday,
  7. What does “a lil fast” mean? Would be easier to answer if I knew.
  8. I would insist the parents purchase a travel insurance policy. Also, have a signed letter authorizing you to seek medical treatment.
  9. Always a good idea to check directly with your cruise line: https://help.carnival.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6292
  10. Agree, Candles is not casual, IME. I’ve never seen jeans allowed. You do have an option - room service.
  11. You were too close in to get any price adjustment. Sometimes, a sold out cruise still shows as available; not sure if this was the case with your cruise.
  12. My experience in the last couple of years is they will only deliver to the room, but as with everything Windstar, YMMV.
  13. No, the only alcohol you may bring on board is two bottles of wine per cabin. You will have to purchase any hard alcohol at the bars by the glass.
  14. Msears101 - both my mom and her husband live in my house. Underwater - I did get the booklet from Chase that explains the coverage for my specific card, and it appears to exclude this. However, terms of the coverage changed over the last year, and I’m wondering if he was covered when I purchased this trip. When I feel strong, I’ll have to revisit this.
