Windstar is the most fantastic ship experience - their small little sail ships are the ultimate in food and service. The entire staff knows your name by the morning of the second day on board. The bridge is open at any time of the day, go in and check the charts along with the navigator. The barbecued lobster as we sailed out of Bodrum Turkey with all the sails at full mast is an experience I will never forget.
Hopefully, Paul or Anne can answer for sure, but I've heard that they don't use the water sports platforms much in the Med. I don't know if the water is too cool or if they anchor in port areas where swimming wouldn't be safe because of boat traffic.
Paul, Ronaldo and I have to agree 100%. I am so MAD that we have no time this upcoming year to book a WindStar in the Carribbean I could scream. Two dates that we had are chartered!
The product is simply magnificent. Fantastic Food, intimate, water sport oriented...I - who find faults with Saints - found very little wrong on our Wind Star. I just hope that the line can continue along this venue and not become another Carnival!
