Or maybe you feel like staying right where you are and dining in your stateroom. Soon, evening stars will light up the sky. Sleep as late as you like and as often as you want. This is your kingdom to rule as you wish.

Wind Spirit Adventure

| Tahiti
My First WindStar Cruise. Exceeded my expectations!! Absolutely NO negative comments!!

An outstanding experience-- Tahiti

| Tahiti and Society islands including Bora-Bora
This is probably the best Windstar cruise I have experienced. Both regarding the beauty of Tahiti and associated islands visited, and the organization of the trip. This included on board shows by local artists, visits to micro-islands (atolls) during the day and at night (with local dancing and traditionally prepared food), and the quality of the optional guided tours.

Wind Spirit Cruise - Society Islands

| Papeete, Moorea, Taha'a, Raiatea, Bora Bora, Huahine
Excellent cruise ship! Small and personal. Exceptional service from all ship staff members including the captain. Great ports of call plus many great touches such as a fabulous on deck BBQ that included grilled lobster tails. We also enjoyed a motu picnic one day in a gorgeous location off the island of Taha'a. Ship staff even brought over a generator to operate a blender for mixed beverages! Another nice touch was local traditional Polynesian entertainment on the pool deck the afternoon we were docked in Raiatea. We also enjoyed an evening of wonderful traditional foods, including roast pig, and more local entertainment, including fire dancers the evening we were in Bora Bora. This ship provided everything we were looking for on our Polynesian cruise.

Great Ship for French Polynesia

| 7 day Dreams of Tahiti
Good selection of shore excursions but overly priced. Food was good with many choices at breakfast and lunch buffets and nice portions at dinner. Not many places to go to get out of the sun except for Air conditioned stateroom. She is a grand sailing vessel but is showing her age a bit.

Great Windstar - Wind Spirit Honeymoon

| French Polynesia
Wonderful experience!

Dreams of Tahiti

| Papeete, Moorea, Raiatea, Motu Maheau/Taha'a, Bora Bora, Huahine
Snorkeling was great. Had excursions for all skill levels. Everything was on time. Basic ship, no frills, but very adequate. Thoroughly enjoyed fellow guests. Limited entertainment, but fun.

Great destination-focused small ship

| French Polynesia, Tahiti, Moorea, bora bora, tahaa, Raiatea
Loved French Polynesia and the small ship. Seemed like our own personal Yacht with no Crowds or lines. Service was great with staff knowing you by name by the second day. Food quality in Amphora was below Princess or Royal Caribbean standards. By quality I mean seasoning, serving temp, etc. The Veranda was good and the deck BBQ was fabulous. Our Candles experience was not good. Poor service and cold food. Breakfast and lunch in the Veranda gave lots of fresh choices. Bread and dessert is their forte, so watch out for the weight gain. :) We loved the Polynesian show and buffet on Motu Tapu the 2nd Bora Bora night. Our couples massage under the stars one night was a highlight and well worth the money. Get a later time after 7 pm. Do not get the drink package unless you drink at least 8 drinks each per day. We took 2 bottles wine each on board then bought other drinks and our bar tab was only $300 for the week. The day on the motu at Tahaa was fun but don't get a beach massage unless you want a sand scrub also. :). The Captain is awesome and happy to have you on the bridge anytime and answer all your questions. He tried to be under sail as much as possible. All the stops were great and we booked our own shore excursions independent of Wind Star so I can't rate their excursions. Having paddle boards and kayaks to use off the back of the ship was fun. The ship holds 148 passengers so you know everyone by the end of the week. We met two other couples that we plan to keep in touch with and possibly vacation with next year. Age demographics are pretty balanced with couples from mid 30s to early 70s. There are no elevators and lots of stairs so not for those with mobility issues. A very active crowd. Fun, friendly too. This is a relaxing laid back cruise with only a two person band for evening entertainment, the casino was only open a few times and there are no shows or bingo. If that's your thing, go with princess. This is destination centered, very personalized ship. Again, service is amazing. You call for something and it arrives in 5 min. Like having your own personal butler. We had a blast. We are mid 40s and well traveled.

The perfect vacation

| The Islands of French Polynesia
I have to say that this trip as one of the best I've taken over many years. I would highly suggest this adventure to anyone looking for a wonderful time.

French Polynesia Sailing: Excellent!

| Tahiti, Moorea, Raiatea, Bora Bora, Huahine
We would sail on Windstar again! We loved the smaller vessel, the crew, our cabin, the excursions, the food, and the ports of call! Special mention to the following staff: Uussup, Cabin Steward Olim, Waiter Fajar, Waiter Karolina, Gift Shop Uus, Sports Activities Karen, Fitness/Salon

Cruising Society Isles/Motus of Tahiti

| Society Islands of Tahiti
Outstanding service and crusine. Tahitians are tres jolie, like the scenery and waters. Don't want to fly AA, in future. On forthcoming trip this summer, would like to consider fly either Super Economy, or BUSINESS, or forbid, 1st class. Sitting next to a Parisian of much AVOIR DUPOIS was unseemly for 8 hrs. On future real long distance travels, will have to consider 'breaks' in travel by an overnite layover to hold down 'time zone' fatigue. I appreciate your efforts/connections re the upgraded stateroom. Regards, cliff

Not one bad review!

| Dreams of Tahiti Cruise
Our entire cruise experience was amazing. I have not one bad thing to say. The crew, the food, the experience, all were exceptional!

The Wind Spirit is a sleek, 4-masted sailing yacht accommodating 148 guests. With four decks and a gross tonnage of 5,736, Wind Spirit feels like your own private yacht.

Wind Spirit features wide open, teak decks—quite unusual for small ships. Guests will find hidden nooks for private moments giving them a feeling of being on their own private veranda.

All staterooms have ocean views, queen beds, flat-screen TV with DVD player, and Bose SoundDock speakers for Apple iPods. The Owner’s Suite includes a sitting area.

Wind Spirit offers two primary dining venues. AmphorA restaurant offers gourmet, course-by-course cuisine in the evenings and Veranda restaurant offers casual buffet and full-service dining for breakfast and lunch. All dining is open seating. And, for dining under the stars, make a reservation forCandles which features steaks and skewers.

Wind Spirit amenities include: WindSpa, Watersports Platform, Casino, Lounge, Library, Pool, and Hot Tub.
