Staterooms on Wind Spirit and Wind Star Sailing Vessels

Recommended Posts

We loved all the ports. We hired a local boat and spent a day on a moto. Go snorkeling at least 3 times. We did the E bikes, fun! 

It was very rough seas between islands for us, 12-15 ft seas, so no one noticed engine noise. 

We wished we’d booked an extended stay post cruise in Bora Bora. We made some wonderful friends. Cant wait to go back!

I see from a prior post that you were in cabin 217. This cabin is listed as "quiet" on the list that Petoonya compiled. Did you find it to be so?

Yes. The only negative was the stairs to disembark came down by our window in a couple ports. It turned out to be a minimal inconvenience since we were out of the cabin all day.

 Updated list as of 12/17/18

Most are listed as noisy, quiet or very good. Started this list looking for cabins in which people specifically complained of noise, and when I added to the list "very good" when people made positive comments, not specifically related to noise. So if you've got a cabin that is "quiet" or "very good" assume that the occupants were pleased with everything.

I can't speak to cabins that are next to each other where one is listed as noisy and is sandwiched by two quiet cabins. Just comments that I've read.

New to the forum but definitely a new windstar fan! My husband and I have booked our second cruise Rome to Lisbon for next October but are struggling between the Windsurf, which we were on this past fall, or the Windstar. We are intrigued by the builtin seats and tables in the windstar cabins, but can’t seem to get a straight answer from either our TA or windstar if ALL the cabins have that setup, or just certain cabins and/or categories. We are interested in a Deck 1 cat BX cabin with the built in seats and table. Thanks!

Sail Maine,

Just got off Wind Spirit 12/14. Ahhhhhh- would love to be back. But our cabin attendant said all BX do have the built-in seats and tables.

I have to disagree with the assessment of cabin 105 on the Wind Star. It was loud and it was hot. There was a constant droning noise and vibration whenever the engine was running (and it usually was, on our Jewels of the Windward Islands cruise in 2015).

 

On Wind Spirit, we had cabin 122 and it was great. Nice and quiet, and no issues with getting too hot.

Woofable- I added your input about 105 and 122. Thanks very much!

210 is a very convenient room.  Easy access to the stairs, water platform, and straight up to the pool deck.  It is quiet except when the engines are on.  There is a constant, engine noise.  It is very noticeable.  It is a very low HUM.  If that kind of noise does not bother you, it is a great room.

Both are great, but we really love the Windstar.  The crew,  their fantastic, jolly female Captain - all of it.  The cabins are fine - yes I think they are all as you describe bar the suites.  Very comfortable.  You will have a great time whichever you choose.  If you have already tried Windsurf and don't mind a slightly smaller ship, then why not go for Windstar.

We were on Wind Spirit last week in 231 and is was quiet and we thought convenient to areas we liked to frequent, it was a little cool the first day and would not adjust on the thermostat but after we left port it seemed to even out and would love to be back.

Any idea what the space forward of 121 is used for?

I believe the space is for the stairs as well as cabin steward cupboard
