What can I tell you about Windstar?

By now, you must know the drill. I’m spending a week aboard [% 11985 | | Windstar’s %] Wind Surf and want to be your eyes and ears on the ship. The Mediterranean itinerary departs from Barcelona and terminates in Civitavecchia/Rome with calls in Palamos, Spain; Sete, France; Monte Carlo, Monaco; and Portofino and Livorno/Florence, Italy.

Please send me any questions you may have about the Windstar experience or small-ship cruising in Europe. Don’t worry that your question might be to trivial or mundane—if it helps you choose a cruise or satisfy your curiosity, I’m happy to help. I will try to answer as many of your queries as I can in this blog, in addition to posting reports about the ship and the ports we visit.
