  1. Sounds great! But in the meantime, don't you think you could add at least ONE good tequila to your offerings??!!! Please!
  2. Hello and thank you in advance for responding to this query! I have sent countless inquiries regarding the availability of premium tequilas aboard the Windstar vessels. The present selection is fine for the passengers who are into a simple quick mixer and don't care about a headache from the added sugar to such brands as Jose Cuervo. We are looking forward to an upcoming cruise next month and are considering purchasing the beverage package. Noticing the abysmal selection available, we asked everyone from "Customer Service" --both online and by phone--to Windstar Instagram, but have not received a satisfactory reply. Tequila has come a long way from the days of the tequilas that add sugar and caramel color....there are wonderful sipping tequilas like Casa Dragones and Clase Azul. Herradura Silver and Espolon Blanco are great for mixing. Can you confirm (or deny) that we will have as nice a selection of tequila on board as you have other spirits when we sail with Windstar next month? Please!!!?????
  3. Loved the FRENCH balcony! Enjoy!
  4. Can anyone comment on whether Star Legend Fitness Center has a rowing machine? Last time we were on it, I believe it did, but can't remember if I'm getting it confused with Wind Surf...thanks!
  5. Just looking for one drink. So it does make a difference.
  6. Yes, better tequila is readily available. At least with wine you may bring on a few bottles with labels you prefer....I don't think they will allow this with tequila. I've asked three times and no one replies.
  7. Appalled at the abysmal Tequila selection. Have contacted Windstar and they say they are "unable to locate" other tequila. Keep sending queries to the powers that be, but so far no one addressing this. Shocked that there are premium spirits in all other categories except Tequila. And no Mezcal??!!!. Very sad indeed.

  9. It such a small island. We walked around town and to the beach so cannot comment on the taxi situation and costs. It’s very nice to explore on foot. Whatever you do, remember they use Euros, so have some with you....
  10. SEE ANSWERS BELOW IN ALL CAPS.... I have sailed with NCL, RCCL, MSC, Celebrity, Carnival and Princess. I am booked with P&O next summer. Out of the cruise lines I have listed, which lines entertainment is closest to Viking? VIKING IS IN A CLASS OF ITS OWN. NO CHILDREN UNDER 18, UNBELIEVABLE SPA THAT MAKES YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO BUY THE HARMONY MASSAGE OIL, EXCELLENT FOOD, SERENE ATMOSPHERE, ETC. ETC. I have looked at different itineraries they have and am interested in the 15 day ones. When I look at the details, it says that flights and excursions are included. If flying from the UK and boarding in the Caribbean what airline do they typically use? Is it possible to upgrade your flight? Is it easy to do? HIGHLY RECOMMEND BOOKING YOUR OWN AIR AND ASKING FOR A CREDIT. IT WON'T BE MUCH, BUT BOOKING AIR THROUGH THE CRUISELINE IS ALWAYS DICEY. With excursions, when I am looking at the different cabins it says I can book 60 days out? Do the included excursions book out? Is it possible that there will be no availability for included excursion? SOMETIMES THE EXCURSIONS WILL BOOK UP QUICKLY. I BELIEVE THAT THE HIGHER YOUR CABIN CATEGORY, THE EARLIER YOU MAY BOOK EXCURSIONS. The mini-bar in the room is this at a cost? THE MINI BAR IS NOT AT COST, EXCEPT IF YOU WANT ALCOHOL. IN HIGHER CATEGORY (PENTHOUSE & UP), THE MINI BAR IS STOCKED WITH TINY BOTTLES OF YOUR CHOICE OF ALCOHOL ETC. AT NO COST. It also says speciality coffee are included, does this mean cuppachinos? YES As they provide flights are transfers included? NOT SURE, WE BOOKED OUR OWN AIR. Any info would be appreciated. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH VIKING. WE HAVE BEEN ON EVERY CRUISE LINE AND VIKING IS ITS OWN CLASS. NOT STUFFY, NOT A "PARTY ATMOSPHERE" (SEE CARNIVAL), NO LITTLE KIDS RUNNING AROUND, JUST CALM AND LOVELY. WHATEVER YOU DO, TAKE SOME TIME TO DO A SPA ACTIVITY. WE NEVER DO THEM BECAUSE WE ARE DISAPPOINTED IN QUALITY, ETC. THIS SPA IS SIMPLY AMAZING AND THE PRODUCTS USED: C/O GERD--ARE OUTSTANDING. ENJOY!!!!! Sent from my VTR-L09 using Forums mobile app
  11. this was truly one of our favorite ports. like visiting a mini st barts, only not as pricey, glamorous and touristy. the fort hike is ok, you can see it from your ship/boat, but we enjoyed walking up the hill and then across to a stunning beach. the beach was "u" shaped and had showers, shade or sun. It was picturesque and a wonderful spot to relax and take photos. Have a nice meal in town at one of the little bistros and taking some time to peruse the artwork--a lovely memory of an awesome day on a fabulous little island! And yes, bring Euros! (can't answer the golf cart question--doesn't seem to be an option--you could probably rent a car instead.
