7 Days of Christmas on Windstar Cruises’ Star Legend, While 10-Night ‘Yachting,’ Caribbean Style!

Day 1 – Port of Miami

As we entered the Port of Miami, our driver didn’t believe us when we said our ship was at Terminal E. He insisted there was no ship at Terminal E. Trust us, we said.

Sure enough, there it was — sandwiched in between two Carnival megaships was Windstar Cruises Star Legend. With a guest capacity of 312 (there are 240 booked for this cruise), it was more yacht than ship, which happens to be this cruise line’s calling card.

This is our first time on Windstar, which would be departing Miami on a 10-day “Jungles and Jewels of the Central American Coast.” For us, it was the perfect way to spend the Christmas holidays.

Known for their sailing ships, Star Legend is one of three of Windstar’s motorized yachts, which have been undergoing a $250 million renovation. The ship was actually cut in half and a new midsection inserted that boosted guest capacity by a hundred, as well as upgrading staterooms and facilities throughout the ship.

After a somewhat involved check-in process, we found our room on Deck 4, where our luggage was already waiting for us. Let’s talk about the room, which was both nicely appointed and laid out.

There was a living area in the center with a couch, two chairs and a table. Along with chilled champagne, there was a beautiful flower arrangement and chocolate-dipped strawberries awaiting our arrival — a wonderful welcome from Windstar.

We have a walk-in closet, and the bathroom features two sinks and a roomy, glass-walled shower — very nice. There is a more storage around the bed, along with a generous number of outlets and USB connections. Another thing we really liked were curtains that close off the sleeping area.

Like many smaller ships, Star Legend doesn’t feature balconies. We had a large window, and some of the rooms have French doors, similar to some of the river ships we have cruised on. Overall, it was one of the nicest staterooms we’ve had on a cruise ship.

The next order of business was the mandatory muster drill. After watching a safety video, we found our muster station and went through what to do in the event of an emergency. With that out of the way, it was time for some food.

Since lunch hours were over, we ordered room service, and then dived right into unpacking and organizing ourselves for the next 10 days.

Sailaway was scheduled for 4:30, so we headed topside to find a drink and a seat. There are signs of the season throughout the ship, with Christmas trees in many of the public spaces as well as displays by the central spiral staircase.

Windstar’s mantra is “180 degrees from ordinary,” striving to create a “friendly, unpretentious and relaxed ambience.” We saw evidence of that right away, as guests introduced themselves and were eager to start up conversations. Smiling, friendly staff members were quick to offer guidance when needed.

As the afternoon got later, and storm clouds gathered over the Miami skyline, it was clear our departure was delayed, something the captain soon confirmed. There were paperwork issues with the local authorities, so everybody just sit tight. Meanwhile, the skies opened up and we got one of those tropical downpours Miami is famous for.

As we planned our evening, we thought we would start in the Compass Rose lounge, on Deck 6 by the boutique shop. Dark and inviting, with its own bar, the band Back on Traxx was playing, so we found a table, ordered some martinis and enjoyed the performance. Afterwards, we met the lead singer and we thought she looked familiar: She had checked us in when we got on the ship. On the smaller ships, the crew has to wear lots of hats.

Time to turn our attention to dinner. Star Legend’s main dining room is the Amphora Restaurant, which is first come, first serve on Deck 3. For more intimate dining, there’s also Cuadro 44 by Anthony Sasso, a James Beard Foundation recognized chef, specializing in Spanish-inspired dishes, and Candles, both of which require reservations but are included with your fare.

Karnick, the maître d’ at Amphora, was kind enough to score us reservations at Quadro 44, where we enjoyed a delicious cod, poached in olive oil and served in a salsa with manila clams. I followed that up with an orange-infused creme brulee, while Pam tried the Torta de Santiago — “boozy almond cake with sangria fruit whipped nata.” Both the food and the service were topnotch.

As the clock moved toward the 10 o’clock hour, we were still docked in Miami. Now we were starting to worry a bit. Would it affect our first port of call, Key West, set for the next morning? Then, just before 11, we saw movement. The cruise had officially started.

Now we’ll see what tomorrow brings.

Day 2 – Key West

Day two of our cruise on Windstar Star Legend, and we’re up early. The sun is shining through our window and the ship is moving briskly through the waves toward Key West. no doubt making up lost time with our late departure from Miami.

Breakfast is being served at the Veranda, an indoor/outdoor venue aft on Deck 7. Pam secures us an open-air table and she orders Eggs Benedict, her favorite, while I go with the French toast.

We’re discussing what we want to do in Key West when the captain comes on for a ship-wide announcement. We learn Celebrity Apex has docked ahead of us, and due to high winds and unfavorable conditions, the stop at Key West has been scrapped out of an abundance of caution.

Disappointed? Yes, but probably not as much as new friends Leo and Mary. Leo had told us the night before he was planning to find a Key West bar and watch the World Cup finale between Argentina and France. The ship’s limited live TV channels have little to offer sports enthusiasts.

So now we’ll have two days at sea while we head for our next port of call, Costa Maya, which the captain is hopeful we’ll reach early to give us extra time there.

After breakfast, I’m tackling some Internet connection issues while Pam explores new spaces on the ship. Her quest takes her to the Yacht Club Cafe and Library, a real gem located at the front of the ship on Deck 8.

Offering panoramic views and plush seating, guests can relax with the coffee or drink of their choice, swap travel stories or just enjoy the solitude. Throughout the day, they serve sandwiches, lights snacks and desserts. Some guests take turns working on a large puzzle while others read. For Pam, it’s the perfect place to don headphones and listen to her extensive music collection.

Later, lunch is available in the Veranda or the Star Grill, located on Deck 8. While there is a limited menu, most opt for the buffet, which today celebrates all foods Greek. Pam goes with the eggplant, while I customize a chicken gyro at the carving station. The weather is a mix of clouds and sun, and as the afternoon wears on, overcast skies produce occasional rain showers.

Later, we attend the Captain’s Welcome Reception, held by the pool on Deck 7. As wait staff serve guests wine and champagne, Captain Nick, who calls the UK home, introduces his senior officers. He also gives us some good news: We are cleared to dock in Costa Maya at 4 pm tomorrow, which will allow us to overnight and provide extra time in port after the big ships depart.

The informal style of yachting Windstar is known for extends to the captain and his senior officers as well, who freely circulate among the guests, answering questions and engaging in conversation. You realize the experience really is “180 degrees from ordinary.”

Dinner tonight is in the main dining room, Amphora. Maitre d’ Karnick has arranged to give us a booth, which is much appreciated. Pam starts with one of her favorites — Lobster Bisque — followed by grilled chicken, while I go with the arancini, a pineapple boat and the duck a l’orange, all wonderfully prepared.

After dinner we head for the Compass Rose lounge, where Back on Traxx is doing a set of dance music, followed by a tribute to The Beatles. For the latter, the band is joined by Entertainment Director Gill, who contributes lead guitar and vocals. It inspires a number of guests to get their dance groove on. Fr us, we feel like we’ve been dancing all evening as the ship rolls to and fro in the waves.

One of the other perks Windstar has provided us is daily laundry service, which on a 10-day cruise is a Godsend. I sent out a batch of clothes this morning and they were returned before 5 pm. Now I’m on a mission to see how we arrange to keep that going after we get back.

Windstar, you’re spoiling us!

Day 3 – Costa Maya

Early morning on day three, and we are greeted by a blazing red sky over Caribbean waters as dawn begins to break. Windstar’s Star Legend is making its way toward Costa Maya on the Mexican coast, and we are now some 600 miles from our starting point, Miami.

On sea days, the focus is mainly on health and fitness, with various activities centered around the Fitness Center, spa and Motion Studio. I take a look-see, but since we aren’t gym rats, we are content to watch the puzzle fanatics in the Yacht Club.

There are other events on the schedule, and after a leisurely breakfast at the Veranda, we head for the Lounge on Deck 5, where Executive Chef Stefan Vasilev is holding a cooking demonstration. Today he’ll show us how to make “Shrimp and Bay Scallop Mascarpone Risotto.”

Assisted by Entertainment Manager Gill, he makes it look easy as he blends arborio rice, shallots, garlic, shrimp, scallops and a half-dozen other ingredients into an entree. The audience is treated to samples and get a copy of the recipe. If only we could get Chef Stefan to make an appearance in our kitchen, we would be all set.

A short time later, we make our way to the Compass Rose for a cocktail demonstration. It may be morning, but you know it’s five o’clock somewhere, right?

The bartender prepares three drinks for us to try, starting with the legendary Singapore Sling and ending with one of our favorites — the Lemon Drop Martini (with sugar on the rim, naturally). Everyone gets to sample these as well. One takeaway for us: Martinis should not be shaken for more than eight seconds (I always tend to go longer, maybe because we just like the sound of a shaking cocktail).

The demo also introduced us to a new brand of gin we haven’t tried: Mermaid. It comes in several varieties and the bottles are beautiful. Now that’s on our list as well.

Back at the Veranda, today’s lunch theme is Mexican, and there’s a taco building station where the chef will create your favorite combination of flavors. Our open-air table gives us a great view of the sea, and it’s a glorious day to dine al fresco, enjoying chips and guacamole. Also appropriate as we close in on Costa Maya.

Most guests spend the afternoon relaxing on loungers in the pool area. It’s a good day for it, as the trade winds keep the heat index down.

Back in our stateroom, we note the ship has stopped moving. Looking out the window, we see two large ships — Carnival Pride and Royal’s Adventure of the Seas — beside us. No question about it: We have arrived at Costa Maya.

Located in the eastern Yucatan, Costa Maya has rapidly grown into a thriving cruise destination, hosting thousands of guests every month. At the end of the pier, the terminal features a well-developed shopping area, along with restaurants, a saltwater pool and swim-up bars.

Guests are greeted by locals wearing colorful Mayan costumes (photo op, anyone?), and on previous visits we have watched the “high flyers” perform the Mayan ritual of soaring around a 75-foot-high pole. It’s pretty impressive.

As guests from the other ships in port stream back to re-board, we will soon have the shops all to ourselves. For us, it means getting a table at one of the restaurants and connecting to their WiFi. For all its beautiful upgrades, Star Legend’s Internet connectivity is marginal at best.

There’s a lot to be said for overnighting at a port. You can move at a more relaxed pace, discover more of what there is to see and do and escape the heat after darkness falls. We take our time going back to the ship, then snap some photos of how beautiful the ship looks docked at night.

Back onboard, we have reservations at Candles. By day, this is the Veranda buffet. At night, it is transformed into Candles, creating a sea of soft glowing light at the open-air tables. Yes, romance is in the air.

Since Windstar has partnered with the James Beard Foundation, you know the food across the board is special. Candles are no exception. Pam started with the “Top Chef” Tomato and Watermelon Salad, while I had the Roasted Shitake Mushroom Cromesqui. The portions were just right.

While many choose the high-end steaks for their entree, as non-beef eaters we both went with the Grilled Branzino, adding a baked potato and onion rings for sides. Paired with one of our favorite wines, the setting was just as magical as the food. And the service, as per usual, was impeccable.

After watching the big cruise ships steam away, we headed back to Compass Rose to end our evening listening to Back on Traxx. Afterwards, Entertainment Director Gill would be hosting “The Marriage Game,” where spouses find out how much they really know about each other. No, we’re good in that department.

Day 4 – Costa Maya

It’s day four of our 10-day cruise on Windstar Star Legend, and we’ve been docked at Costa Maya on the Yucatan coast since yesterday afternoon.

A look outside our stateroom window reveals we’ve been joined on the dock by a cruise megaship, Norwegian Bliss. Later in the morning, Royal’s even bigger ship, the Oasis-class Allure of the Seas, also arrives in port. The pier leading to the terminal is one huge mass of humanity. The shops and restaurants should be thrilled.

The difference in size between Star Legend and Allure is striking. Our top deck, Deck 8, barely reaches the lifeboats on Allure. But after seeing the throngs of people exiting Allure and Bliss, it makes us grateful to be among the 240 guests on this ship.

Today a good number of us are on tours, many to see the Chacchoben Mayan ruins, known as “The Place of the Red Corn.” Having been here several times before, we elect to stay onboard and enjoy some quiet time, as well as do some exploring.

While Pam listens to her music in the Yacht Club, I go to Deck 7 and head for the Bridge. Normally, a ship’s Bridge is off-limits to guests, but Windstar has an open-bridge policy when possible. The Bridge crew welcomes me in for a quick tour.

Like Captain Nick, many of the Bridge officers are from the UK. As they talk about the various navigation and safety systems, I’m invited to seat in the captain’s chair and “take the con.” Careful not to touch any buttons, I grab of pair of binoculars and scan the horizon for boat traffic (yes, I do know we’re docked, but go with me). Thanks guys, for making me “captain for a hot minute.”

At one end of the pool deck, up on Deck 8, you’ll find a colorful wall mural. It’s the work of Alex Nunez, a Cuban-American artist based in Miami who specializes in large-scale works that draw from nature and utilize bold colors. We learned from the staff that Ms. Nunez was on Star Legend prior to arriving in Miami to execute the painting, but had to wait for a special primer, so she actually finished the work the day before we sailed. At some point soon, she’ll be painting a companion mural at the other end of the pool.

We also have read that she likes to sometimes include hidden messages in her art. If you find it, pleased me know. I’ll keep looking.

In the afternoon, Entertainment Director Gill is hosting another round of Trivia in Compass Rose. While not my wheelhouse, I enjoy giving it a go. Fortunately, another guest, Bill, asked me to partner up. The topic was “geography,” and while we didn’t win, we did capture second place. The first-place winner scored a keychain. Now I don’t feel so bad.

Later, we attend a session on our next port, Santo Tomas De Castillo, in Guatemala. While we have visited this country once before, it was at a different location. We’ll be docking at its largest commercial port, where some of us will tour Quirigua, a Mayan site with a UNESCO “Cultural Heritage of Mankind” designation. Others will visit a nature preserve, while we have opted for a Trolley Tour of the area.

The weather has turned cloudy again, with off and on showers. It could be we’ll need to pack an umbrella along with our sunscreen just in case.

Day 5 – Santo Tomas De Castilla

Five days into our cruise on Windstar Star Legend finds us off the coast of Guatemala, preparing to dock at Santo Tomas De Castilla. It’s sunny, a welcome sight, and the chances of rain are 50/50.

One aspect of our cruise we look forward to is our daily open-air breakfast in the Veranda, the restaurant on Deck 7. You can get eggs or omelets made to order, serve yourself from the buffet or order from a menu. The service, as it is throughout the ship, is excellent. There’s nothing like a leisurely breakfast at sea.

Today we are signed up for the Trolley Town Tour, which will take us through the streets of Puerto Barrios. Our guide relates interesting facts about the area, as well as the culture and country as a whole. One thing is obvious quickly: It seems everyone in town owns a motorcycle or scooter.

We pass a large facility run by Chiquita, where dozens of trucks transfer their famous bananas for shipment throughout the world. Stores with holiday decorations line the streets, while children come up to greet us at every stop. The Guatemalan people are warm, friendly and inviting.

As a parting gift, our guide hands out the traditional Guatemalan “Worry Dolls,” which, according to legend, will relieve you of whatever worries you have by placing it under the pillow when you go to bed. With everything going on in the world, I may need to take two, although this cruise is doing a good job of taking those away.

Other tours available include visiting Mayan ruins, seeing the San Felipe Fortress (built in 1595) and a nature hike to waterfalls.

While where we are docked is an industrial, working port, and also the headquarters for the Guatemalan Navy, there is a “Welcome to Guatemala” terminal where you can find tourism information and vendors selling local goods. When we were there, a group of dancers also performed. Considering they don’t get the cruise traffic other ports do, they’ve done a nice job of making visitors feel welcome.

For lunch in the Veranda, Chef Vipon is offering a custom stir fry. Since it is beef only, we go with a chicken burger and fries.  It’s noteworthy that after only a few days on the ship, many of the crew will call you by name when they see you — another nice benefit of small-ship cruising.

This afternoon, I have arranged with the hotel manager, Christian, to see some of the ship’s staterooms so I can get an overview of the accommodations available on Star Legend. Chief Housekeeper Hadi gives me a tour of the premium staterooms aboard. Besides the owner’s suite, the ship’s largest, there are two “Island” suites in the front of Deck 5 that feature an expanded living area, more windows and and upgraded bath.

In total, Star Legend has 156 staterooms, many of which were added in the refit. As previously noted, they are among the nicest we’ve stayed in and would qualify as suites on most other ships. Hadi also pointed out the stewards onboard take care of 10 staterooms, while on most cruise lines, they would have responsibility for 20 or more. This allows them to provide more individual attention. On that last point, Davis, our attendant, makes sure we have fresh ice twice a day, a service we rarely experience on other ships.

Tonight the main event is the Crew Talent Show in the Lounge on Deck 5, when you get to see the people who take care of all our needs in a totally different light. Among the performers is our very own Davis, who joins his fellow housekeepers from Indonesia to perform his country’s traditional hand dances (with the disclaimer they’ve had 15 minutes of rehearsal).  They draw large applause, as do singers, dancers, a magician and a hilarious take-off on synchronized swimming.

If I say “Don’t quit your day jobs” it isn’t because they don’t have talent — it’s because they’re too good at taking care of our needs.

As we depart Guatemala, we head for Roatan, Honduras, which Captain Nick tells us is 137 miles away. We should dock by 8 am tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Day 6 – Roatan

Our cruise on Windstar Star Legend has reached the half-way point on our 10-day holiday Caribbean cruise. Did I say cruise? Windstar calls it “yachting,” and you’ll find no argument here.

With 240 guests onboard, plus 200 crew, it’s almost a one-to-one ratio, and all the pampering and attention will definitely spoil you. It really is what it must be like to sail on a mega yacht.

As we open back our curtains, we see Star Legend is docked at our next port, Roatan, Honduras. Roatan is a large island some 30 miles off the Honduras coast, and home to nearly 100,000 residents. The clear waters that surround the island house the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, and protecting this pristine environment is a priority for the government. There is one more ship in port today, but Carnival is docked at the island’s other port.

We have visited this destination on several occasions, but today we’re signed up for a tour we haven’t taken: Big French Key All Inclusive.

Big French Key is an island resort. You reach it via a 30-minute motorcoach ride through narrow city streets and the Roatan countryside, after which you board a ferry barge for the five-minute transit to the island.

Our tour guide says, “Welcome to paradise,” and no one in our group would argue the point. Sandy white beaches and crystal-clear waters are punctuated by thatched-roof huts and whimsical water sculptures. Guests have their choice of snorkeling, paddleboarding, taking a boat tour or simply relaxing and doing nothing. Our choice is the latter, because “how sweet to do nothing,” right?

After selecting two loungers in the shade of a tree, we cash in some of our drink tickets for two “Sex on the Beach” cocktails. Let the relaxing begin!

Later, we are treated to a buffet lunch of authentic Honduran food, after which I take a short nature trail walk to admire more of Big French Key’s scenic beauty. This is definitely the kind of place you never want to leave. But leave we must.

Tonight the Star Legend crew has arranged a special treat for the guests: BBQ under the stars. They are replacing the loungers by the pool with cloth-covered tables complete with candlelight. The giant buffet includes everything you would want: All kinds of salads and side dishes, plus hot-off-the-grill brisket, chicken, ribs and fish. And for dessert, an enormous apple cobbler with ice cream.

They couldn’t have chosen a more perfect night for it. Skies are clear with a light wind blowing. In the background, duo D’Harmony and the Back on Traxx is providing the entertainment. What a perfect ending to the day.

But wait — it’s not over yet. After the BBQ, the crew is assembling on the pool deck for a spirited line dance, with many guests quickly joining in.

Captain Nick informs us we will arrive at our next destination, Belize, by early morning. Time to close the books to this one.

Day 7 – Belize City

It’s early morning on Day 7 of our “yachting adventure” on Windstar Star Legend, and you can already tell today is going to be hot and sunny as we dock in the waters just off the coast of Belize.

Guests at breakfast are all talking about how here we are in the sunny climes of the Caribbean while millions huddle up against one of the worst winter storms in history back home. Somehow, it doesn’t seem fair, and we wish we could send this warmth their way.

This is our third visit to Belize this year, the only Central American country where English is the official language. A former British colony, at one time named British Honduras, it gained its independence in 1981. Like many Central American countries, it has a rich Mayan legacy.

While Pam has opted to spend the day relaxing on Star Legend, I have signed up for the “Crystal Cave Tubing with Lunch” tour. This will be my second try at taking this particular excursion. On a previous visit a month ago, with a different cruise line, we aborted the tour after encountering massive crowds, bus delays and broken bathrooms at the Belize port.

This time around, things were much smoother from the get-go. Our tour guide escorted us to the gangway, where a tender was waiting to take us ashore (because the waters near Belize are shallow, cruise ships must tender their guests over to the Belize City port) At the port, Windstar personnel are on hand to guide us directly to our bus, past long lines of Carnival guests waiting for their buses.

Major props to Windstar for how they take care of their tour guests. You might not appreciate that unless you’ve taken tours that were poorly organized and managed.

Our destination is the Jaguar Paw Adventure Outpost, a little over an hour away. During the ride, our tour guide, Denise, relates interesting facts about Belize, its history, its people, culture, food and diverse animal life. After arriving at the Nohoch Che’en Archaeological Reserve, we board a second bus — a school bus — for the short, five-minute ride over a steep hill to Jaguar Paw, which has a lush, rain forest setting.

We were advised to bring a towel, swimsuit, a change of clothes, cash/credit cards, sunscreen and bug spray. But I was surprised to learn “no flip flops,” which is what I wore. That meant renting water shoes ($12), along with a locker for my bag ($10).  I also didn’t bring bug spray. But when I found out a can of Off was $15, I decided to chance it.

Originally, we were told lunch would be after the cave tubing. Now we are told we’ll have lunch first. So we settle in to a buffet of chicken, cole slaw and rice and beans, accompanied by fruit punch.

For the tubing, we go in groups of eight. The first order of business is getting our equipment from our cave tubing guide: Life vest, lighted helmet and a lime green inner tube. Then it’s off through the jungle, up a fairly steep flight of stone stairs and down to the mouth of the cave, where we each in turn slip backward into our tubes. The water is a little chilly, but you get used to it quickly.

The cave itself, formed over millions of years, is home to the cenotes prevalent in this part of the Yucatan. This is where the Mayans performed their bloodletting rituals, hoping their gods would grant them rain and prosperity.

Safety is paramount on these tours, and all our tubes are strapped together as we proceed into the caverns, pulled along by our guide. In the darkness, our helmet lights illuminate beautiful rock formations created by Nature over eons of time. Around us we see the twinkling lights of other tours floating in the distance.

At one point, we exit our tubes and take a brief walking tour, where our guide shows us various Mayan relics found in the cave and details their ceremonies. Apparently the Mayans didn’t mind a little pain and suffering to make their gods happy.

At the end of the tour, we can “free float” to the exit point or swim in the cenote’s waters, which in places are 30 to 50 feet deep. Most of us free float, while we watch others jump off a ledge into the water below. We exit to find ourselves in a tropical downpour (it is called a rain forest, right?). At this point, getting a little wetter isn’t a big deal.

As is mostly the case, the rain is short-lived, and soon enough the sun returns. A change into dry clothes and we are ready for the bus ride back.

It’s been a full day, and after a shower, Pam and I go to the Yacht Club where, over a drink, I regale her with my daredevil adventures of bravery. Well, maybe I enhanced it just a little. And in case you were wondering — not a single bug bite, and usually mosquitoes love me.

Later, Captain Nick tells us the weather up ahead is somewhat unsettled as we head toward our final stop, Cozumel. It seems the same fronts that are slamming North America are also affecting the weather in Mexico. As long as the yacht doesn’t run out of martinis, we’ll be fine.
