Description

Wind Surf was commissioned by Windstar cruises as one of two units to be added to Wind Star and Wind Spirit. After a move to Club Med, she returned to the fleet and is now the third vessel in this heterogeneous company. Despite the comfort and the latest technology, this 1989 ship offers real sailing experiences, with its 5 masts and the dedication of the crew to introduce passengers to the magic of sailing of the past.

Small standard cabins

Comment

Wind Surf is an elegant and fascinating sailing ship. We appreciated the service and the welcome that the crew gave us. The standard cabins are a bit small and uncomfortable, but on a sailing ship it is not easy to find very large spaces. The overall experience was positive and we recommend this experience to everyone.

Vele...ma comfort!

Una visita non è mai abbastanza per valutare cabine, servizi e ristorazione. Ma basta, come in questo caso, a percepire il fascino di una crociera a vela, accompagnato però da ogni comfort e da spazi ampi ed accoglienti. Wind Surf è un veliero dotato di cabine ampie e luminose, varie possibilità di ristorazione, bei ponti esterni. Grande accoglienza e servizio che si presenta davvero a misura d'uomo. Che dire, messa nella lista di attesa!

Navigazione a bordo di un veliero

I didn't like

Comment

Le emozioni e le suggestioni vissute a bordo del più grande veliero al mondo a vele triangolari (o bermudiane), a parere di chi scrive, sono impagabili. Sebbene la movimentazione delle vele sia affidata all'alta tecnologia (tutto è diretto dal Ponte di Comando), il dispiegamento delle stesse, ad ogni partenza del veliero, accompagnate dall'inno Wind Star "Conquest of Paradise", di Vangelis, è da brividi... Altro punto di forza e peculiarità di navi e velieri Windstar, è data da la "Marina", l'area poppiera al ponte 2, dove tramite una apertura basculante, si accede ad una piattaforma e, da qui, direttamente al mare, dove è possibile praticare giochi e sport acquatici, con gli strumenti a disposizione degli ospiti quali, stuoie galleggianti, materassi pneumatici, tavole a remi, canoa, ecc...ed ovviamente tuffi e nuoto, tutto in piena sicurezza e sotto gli occhi vigili degli addetti. Tutto ciò con nave all'ancora e condimeteo permetten
