First Windstar Cruise

Recommended Posts

In a little over 2 weeks I will be on my first Windstar cruise aboard Wind Surf. Needless to say, I am very excited. 

So what should I expect when I take my first steps on the Wind Surf?  What do you do first when you board?

The first thing you do when you board is to walk to the tables set up in the lounge and leave credit card info and get your key cards. After that, you will make your specialty restaurant dinner reservations, sign up for the spa and/or beverage plans, check out the excursion desk, and then head to lunch. I love how easy Windstar makes embarkation!

Go up the gangway, look around and say thank you life, Embarkation is 5 minutes with either a rum punch or a glass of champagne, toast yourself and your fortune, go to your room drop off your carry ons, go up to the Veranda sit in the outside and relish the delicious lunch you are about to have, and do not forget sail away at the Compas Rose. Have a great time.

Thank you and happy cruising to you. I believe what I said. My opinion p, if I can sail on the Surf life is very good, no reason to gripe from my end. Enjoy the sails.

Enjoy your cruise.   Windsurf is their biggest ship, but relatively a very small ship.  It does not have the options and features a bigger ships, but that is the charm. Just relax and enjoy the personalized service.  The crew are fantastic.  With only 300 of you on board they take care of everyone with personalized service.

Lucky you!  Welcome to the world of Windstar - enjoy!  It remains our favourite line.  Friends recently took their first voyage on Windstar with a Windsurf Caribbean cruise.  We had explained to them that its the Crew who make it extra special.  After the cruise they told us that they knew exactly what we meant.  They have already booked another Windstar cruise.

Will be on Star Pride in November in the Caribbean and wind Spirit to Tahiti in 2020. Since I am traveling solo, hope I will enjoy the experience. But it’s a cruise so how can I not enjoy 😋🍷🌊🍺
