Wind Star Review
About This Ship
Cabins: The ocean-view staterooms are ingeniously designed for efficiency. Hanging lockers (closets) are generous, and contain shoe racks and shelves for gear. A small, enclosed cabinet conceals a safe, and an entertainment center includes a flat-screen TV, DVD, and Bose SoundDock speaker for an iPod, which you can borrow from reception fully loaded with music. The combination vanity-desk and bedside table has drawers for ample storage. A countertop lifts up to reveal a lighted makeup mirror, a locking security compartment, and a shallow cubby. Special touches in each stateroom are fresh flowers, terry robes and slippers for use during the voyage, and bath toiletries. The teak-floor bathrooms are big enough for two. All staterooms and suites are equipped with barware, a minibar, and hair dryer (voltage is standard 110 AC); portholes have deadheads, which can be closed in high seas. Ten staterooms have adjoining doors on Wind Spirit and 12 on Wind Star, and a limited number of standard cabins have upper fold-down Pullman berths for a third passenger.
Suites: A single Owner’s suite, the only premium accommodation on board, has a seating area with a sofa bed to offer a berth for a third passenger.
Accessibility: There are no cabins configured for wheelchair accessibility.
