Cabins: Wind Surf's ocean-view staterooms are a study in efficiency and clever design. Hanging lockers ("closets" to nonsailors) are generous. A small enclosed cabinet conceals a safe, and an entertainment center includes a flat-screen TV, DVD, and Bose SoundDock speakers for an iPod, which you can borrow from reception fully loaded with music. The combination vanity-desk and bedside table has drawers for ample storage. A few standard cabins have upper fold-down Pullman berths for a third passenger.
Suites: Double the size of standard staterooms, suites were created by reconfiguring two standard cabins to create accommodations with twice as much storage, two bathrooms, and a sitting area with a sofa bed to offer a berth for a third passenger. The bedroom and sitting room can be separated by drawing a curtain for privacy. Two supersize bridge suites have living and dining areas, a bedroom, a walk-in closet, and a bathroom with a whirlpool tub and separate shower.
Worth Noting: Special touches in each stateroom and suite are fresh flowers, terry robes for use during the voyage, and bath toiletries. Teak-floor bathrooms are sensibly laid out and spacious enough for two people to actually share the space. All staterooms and suites are equipped with barware, minibar, and hair dryer. Voltage is 220, so converters are needed for most small appliances. No cabins are wheelchair accessible.
