Wind Surf Stateroom Review Compilation

Recommended Posts

I have been spending time jotting down cabin remarks in order to aid choosing a cabin for us and several family members who will be traveling with us. I thought I might as well post this for others new to this ship. It was super useful to read about the potential for smoke smell as I have asthma. The good people on the Azamara thread have an amazing spreadsheet going.

 

I was not looking at suites so that info is not in there. If others would like to add to the list, please do.

Room 112 has the tender platform right outside. It was a surprise to see a crew member coming down on the platform on ropes the first morning we woke up and were at a tender port.

 

People don't walk past as it's a crew only section - I would imagine you could see passengers legs if you were in 110.

As we have 102 booked its good to know there at least there are no smells there............................thanks

 

I see from the deckplan we are B grade, that seems to be the lowest, but at least its near the elevator.

 

We are used to travelling steerage.

 

Do Windstar ever upgrade passengers before sailing if the ship isn't full or for any other reason?

Griller: I'm not sure if it's the same on the sail boats, but on Star Pride, I did not get any sense of "class" distinctions. Everyone had basically the same size room, except for a couple of suites. There was no special dining, etc. It was one of the things I really liked about Windstar. It seems that while other lines have gone for the extra charges for space, balconies, service, Windstar treats everyone the same on the ship. We only upgraded a bit for location more mid-ship.

For anyone who's moving from the motor yachts to the sail ones, something to note is that the sail ship cabin numbers go from aft to bow.

 

On the motor ships, it's the opposite.

 

So, 102 on Wind Surf is an aft cabin. On Star Legend it is forward.

128 had a leak on the 12/23/17 cruise and was being repaired on the 12/30/17 one. Those folks in 128 were moved to 126 where they experienced a leak and their AC didn't work. I would avoid those 2 cabins for the time being.

Not sure where the leak was happening but it may have to do with the A/C unit. The maintenance men were in the hallway outside those cabins trying to repair something.

This thread has just been "pinned" (made into a "sticky") to provide a reference source for cabin details for the Wind Surf sailing yacht.

I cross-referenced my research against MNgardens' most recent, updated list (12-31-17), & can add the following:

 

Noisy: 121, 123, 125, 139

 

Quiet: 126, 127, 137, 138, 142, 219, 228, 234, 246, 254

 

My research showed 124 to be noisy, which is different than what MNgardens found, so I don't know what to tell you there. MN gardens had 2 votes for it being a good cabin, so maybe we should go with that.

 

I believe there was one post that mentioned that folks in cabins 154, 155 & 157 might hear chatting from those waiting for the elevator. Someone who's stayed in one of those cabins may want to weigh in on that.

 

Also, those in cabins 222 through 230 may be bothered by people lining up for the tender in the hallway.

In January, 2018 we stayed in Cabin 235 and it was quiet.

I have to say we have been on 23 cruises with WS all except 1 on the sail boats mostly in the B level 100’s we like being down there due to the gentle rocking. We have our best sleep on WS always have. We have been in the bow area, stern, middle. Maybe twice on the A level. We like B level and because we have been on so many times we are often offered “ up grades “ which we refuse. Never a problem, noise, smells etc. I think it is luck, on sail boats something always go wrong, my opinion simply luck.

We love the mattresses and the water pressure we are in our rooms to sleep only and sleep well we do. Otherwise we are on deck. We did accept an upgrade on the Breeze because of the balcony which we loved. Would I want one on the North Atlantic no, but Caribbean and the Med. Absolutely.

Again quiet, we were in deck 5 in the middle, was great. We can’t wait for 1/5, 2 weeks in the Surf heaven. Happy Sailing

Just booked a cruise on Wind Surf and what a joy to know I could come here and instantly know which cabin I want and don't want. Thanks MNgardens. This is great.

Funny, no comments on Wind Surf Deck 3, (TX, not suites). I'm looking at 301 or 302 aft, are they that bad? Anyone know how curved the walls are, and if that's a dead-end hallway? I would love to be able to climb outside without passing any cabins. Guessing we have to stroll down the hall to the inside stairs, yes? no? Good thread, thanks!

Just got an email from WS. Complimentary upgrade from 108 (B) to 230 (AX) on our New Years Eve sailing. :classic_biggrin:

Didn't see 230 on the list above, but 228 was reported as quiet which is right next door.
