    Pictures of the Windstar Wind Surf

    Windstar Cruises' Wind Surf is a beautiful, high-tech cruise ship. The Wind Surf is part luxury yacht and part sailing ship. Powered by a combination of engines and seven huge sails on five masts, she is beautiful to see from afar. Onboard the Wind Surf is no different. For a sailing ship, the Wind Surf is very spacious and carries 310 passengers in grand style across the sea.

    The Wind Surf was significantly renovated in 2012, so some of this information and photos may be outdated, although the small ship sailing experience should be just as delightful!

    Wind Surf information and photos from Windstar Cruises

    Our Wind Surf stateroom number 153 was on the lowest deck and was delightfully spacious and warm.

    Wind Surf's standard staterooms include a queen bed (converts to two twins), two chairs, a vanity/desk area, a flat screen TV, DVD/CD player (for complimentary movies from the library), and Bose SoundDock speakers (for Apple iPod Nanos loaded with a...MORE broad selection of music and complimentary check-out from reception). The cabin is white with wood trim, and is very pleasing to the eye. The cabin has two portholes and plenty of storage, with lots of closet, shelf, and drawer space. The beds are wonderful--custom Sealy Posturepedic Premium Plush Euro-Top mattresses covered with luxurious cotton bed linens and duvets. The cabin also has a safe and mini-bar.

    The bath has a shower with two shower heads, one attached and one handheld. The two mirrored storage cabinets allow for plenty of storage. The lighting in the bathroom is too dark for makeup application, so I used the vanity desk in the cabin. The vanity desk has both 110-volt and 220-volt outlets. Passengers will enjoy the bathroom amenities from L'Occitane and the Egyptian-cotton towels and waffle terry spa bathrobes.

    For groups or families traveling together, 6 of the staterooms have 4 berths and 35 cabins have an extra Pullman berth that pulls down from the wall.

    The 31 suites on deck 3 were added in a 1998 refit, and they were created by combining two standard cabins. Therefore, the suites have two bathrooms and a larger sitting area.

    One cabin feature that I loved was the wireless connectivity for my computer in the cabin.

    The Wind Surf Lounge is the largest lounge on the Wind Surf sailing ship. It is used for large cocktail parties, evening buffets, and entertainment.

    The Wind Surf Lounge is located mid-ship on deck 4 (the main deck) between the Restaurant and the library. We had cocktail parties in the Wind Surf Lounge several evenings, an excellent Mediterranean buffet, and the crew show. The casino adjoins the Wind Surf Lounge.

    Wind Surf Library

    ••• Wind Surf Library. Wind Surf Picture (c) Linda Garrison

    The Wind Surf Library had a good collection of books, CDs, and DVDs.

    The Wind Surf library was very large for such a small ship. I was impressed that the 308-passenger ship's library was about the same size as the 3000-passenger Carnival Liberty's! That small fact helps demonstrate the ship's personality. Wind Surf passengers enjoy reading on deck or watching movies on the DVD player in their cabin, which goes along well with the relaxed, casual atmosphere onboard.

    The Wind Surf has wireless Internet access throughout the ships and a business center with desktop computers and Internet access. These computers in the library do not connect to the Internet, but are used for games, letters, etc. The Wind Surf also had notebook computers (with WiFI) to rent, but those of us who brought our own could use the Internet and access emails in our cabins or in all the common areas except the dining rooms.
