I recently found out about a special cruise for March 2013 called Barefoot Island Cruise. It is Jimmy Buffett themed and has a interesting itinerary. We were thinking about booking it however we have never sailed on such a small ship or from anywhere other that Florida.
I looked up this cruise. I am surprised this is still offered on Windstar's webpage. It's way more expensive if you book through this charter company instead of directly through Windstar. This company is charging you $2099 for a category B cabin, but Windstar will charge you only $1499, and there may be additional discounts on top of that. If you book for the sailing the week before (March 3, 2013) the price is even lower; $1399 per person.
Personally, if I was interested in this ship and itinerary, I would skip this cruise and book a different sailing. I am not sure what you get on this charter that is special except a band playing JB music. Jimmy Buffett has nothing to do with it personally.
I have looked over the forum and can't seem to find any pictures from previous sailings on the WindSurf (food, cabin, etc). Can some post a link?
We aren't allowed to post a link to a specific online TA, but if you go to this charter webpage, click on "gallery" and it has many pictures, as does Windstar's own webpage. They aren't hard to find.
Am I being a nervous nelly?
I am not sure what you are nervous about, except possibly overpaying for a cruise you could book at a much lower cost.
