Wind Sprit crew Exceptional

February

Pros: The staff of Windstar’s Wind Sprit were exceptional. By second day they new your name and cabin number. Captain Belinda was full of personality and enthusiasm. This was also reflected within her senior staff on down.

Cons: The ship could use some updating which I understand is happening in 2025. Also would have appreciated access to chips or nibbles during “happy hour”. The ship’s store lacked snacks, candy and basic toiletries

Recommended: Yes

Outstanding crew.

Society islands

June

Pros: Ports of call were great. Excursions were fun and well organized.

Cons: Too short.

Recommended: Yes

The ship is a little tired and needs updating but the trip made up for it. Wished we stayed longer in other ports so that we could do more than one excursion and be able to experience more of the islands.

Absolutely Perfect

May

Pros: The casual elegance; the genuine warmth and enthusiasm of the captain and crew; the collegial feeling of being on a small ship and getting to know passengers and crew; the food is fabulous; attention to detail throughout the ship; every need and want seems to be anticipated; from booking to the trip itself, Windstar's communication is warm, friendly, accurate.

Cons: I honestly can't think of any downsides

Recommended: Yes

We just finished a voyage through French Polynesia on the Wind Spirit. The best word I can think of for Tahiti, Mo'orea, Bora Bora, Huahine, and our other stops in the Society Islands is ... enchanting. The Wind Spirit and her crew feel a part of the islands. Beautiful, welcoming, and real. Having sailed with numerous cruise lines over the years, this is it. It is Windstar for us from now on. Wind Spirit is the epitome of casual elegance. The staterooms are comfortable and well appointed. The public spaces are lovely, but not showy or pretentious. We took advantage of the all-in package with drinks and gratuities included, as well as the laundry service. A fantastic value that made our voyage easy and relaxed.

Dreams of Tahiti

January

Pros: Comfortable, personable surroundings. All staff genuinely cared about us.

Cons: Limited entertainment. Just some singing (although they were good, just not other options)

Recommended: Yes

We were pleasantly surprised how much we liked the small ship and especially how well all the crew took care of us. For some of them to remember our names from day one and recognize us anywhere on the ship was amazing. Charlie was especially kind and helpful when eating at the Veranda. Bombang was punctual and so helpful every time we ordered room service, which was a lot! The excursions offered were so fun and insightful.

June

Pros: the staff is amazing and the ports are excellent

Cons: drinks seemed week and could have a bigger variety on food in evenings.

Recommended: No

I highly recommend this cruise. The staff was amazing from the minute we got on board. We sailed throughout French Polynesia with an overnight in Bora Bora. The feel of the ship was more of yachting rather than a large cruise ship. They treat everybody very well and I heard nothing but compliments throughout the week. The food could be a little better with a bigger variety but overall good. I loved the private parties they had on private Motus. One day we had a beach party with snorkeling and water sports for everybody on the ship and one night they did the same with local entertainment that got everybody joining in.
