Just completed a one week Tahiti itinerary on Wind Star. We have cruised all over the world and this is 110% one of the BEST cruises we have ever been on. Start to finish, including the booking process, the crew was incredible, the ship pristine and ever so intimate, the itinerary perfect, and we made many wonderful new friendships with some of the nicest and most interesting passengers we have had the good fortune to meet. 5 stars isn't enough. I'd give it 6 stars.

I have cruised with most the big name ships, Windstar is my favorite of all time. By the end of the trip it's like being on a private yacht with a lot of good friends. The entire staff was attentive and sweet and fun. Edgar (cruise director) made the trip memorable. Captain Taillard was also a wonderful person, he joined my husband and I for breakfast and we chatted at length. Can't wait for my next Windstar cruise.

We just returned from our second Windstar Cruise. This trip was on the Star Pride from Costa Rica to Panama. Lovely ship, excellent food, good excursions but, as with our first trip, the crew are what makes the trip. What a lovely group of people who made our trip so special. We had an amazing time. We will be back on Windstar again soon!

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

The trip was one of the best trips we've done. Machu travel did a great job from logistics on airport, bus transfers, hotels are in the center of town, excursions were very organized, staff were there for us to take care of our needs, tour guides were very knowledgeable. Thank you!
