  1. That's because no one has posted an opinion about it yet. Perhaps you could do so upon your return.
  2. Yes, my husband and I took the Huahine motu picnic excursion thru Windstar. It was great fun. I honestly don't remember the pearl farm or the vanilla farm though. We got in on it at the last minute when our private motu picnic company didn't pick us up as promised and were pleasantly surprised at how much fun it turned out to be.
  3. Great review and an excellent road map for those taking this cruise in the future. Our 14 day back-to-back that included this itinerary was to depart this Saturday. 😞 If we should re-book it someday I will be consulting your review for ideas! Thanks!
  4. Yay! Thanks for letting us know you're OK!
  5. I too am a little conceerned about her. It is unusual for her to abruptly terminate her posts. Hoping to hear more from her soon.
  6. Ugh, we'll be in 136 at the end of March. Hope the stinky stairway issue is resolved by then.
  7. I had to google "Parrotheads." I thought maybe it was a school mascot and I could see when their spring break was! LOL. Not quite! Thanks so much for the input.
  8. Ridethetide: Was this rowdy group on a Windstar ship??
  9. Hi there knowledgeable folks, We're thinking of booking the last cruise of the Caribbean season on the Windsurf. Do you think this is advisable? Is there a noticeable let-down of service or food on the last cruise of the season? Any insights you have would be appreciated.
  10. Well, I looked at my February Wind Surf cruise today, and the price remains constant BUT they are now offering $1000 onboard credit for those booking now. What a sneaky way to get around their price guarantee. Honestly....
  11. For what it's worth, I am very prone to seasickness and have never had a problem on the sailing ships. And on the Windsurf we sailed through a hellacious storm around the heel of Italy. Of course, we were mid-ship on the lowest level and I was wearing my wristbands. But still, the movement didn't seem that bad on the upper levels either. I think there's something about the low-slung profile of the sailing ships that lessens movement. JMO
  12. Amen! I check EVERY Thursday and Friday to see if my 2020 sailing has gone on sale. Seems like sometimes they change the prices on Thursday, sometimes on Friday.
  13. LOL. I feel the same way about the mask & snorkel! But I did use their fins, which worked out fine.
