Default Whats the good and bad

We have been cruising with RCCL for a few years. Eight cruises so far. My wife and I are ready for an upgrade. Possibly a cruise with less people, better food and more romantic.

Is Windstar the way to go.

Would love to hear your inputs.

Thank you in advance.

We've done 5 Royal Caribbean and just did our first Windstar to Costa Rica.
We really enjoyed Windstar. The lack of lines and crowds is REALLY nice. Royal Caribbean is so family oriented and we got tired of kids dive bombing us in the pools, teenagers throwing up in the pools and running into us on the stairs.

I can't say Windstar food is better, I think Royal Caribbean had better food but we don't cruise for the food and certainly didn't starve to death. I did miss having a balcony and not having fresh air in our room but Windstar is a more romantic experience.

Meeting in the Lounge at 6:30 for hors doeuvres and drinks or wine (if you want) and hearing about the next day's port and excursions was really nice.

We've had livelier music on RC but all in all the Costa Rica cruise was one of the best we've done.
