  1. Jsglow thanks for the input, I read both your post on the windstar forum and here and they have been very helpful. We haven't done the BVI'S but many years ago did some of the islands on the Royal Clipper itinerary. Just need to decide do we want a little pampering or not. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk

  4. HI all. I don't often lost mainly just read the various feeds, but I'm hoping for some advice and answers. My wife and I are looking for something different for a New Years Cruise. Windstar and Star Clipper both have cruises departing Dec 29, Windsurf from St. Maarten and Royal Clipper from Barbados. We have previously cruised on NCL, Disney, RCI and HA, each has been enjoyable but we're to try a new adventure. We understand the difference between the 2 vessels, sail vs motor/sail, but are looking for a bit more info. If anyone has tried both and can give some comparison it would be appreciated. Things we would like to know are: - fellow passengers - as first timers on the ship will we feel like outsiders? Do the repeat passengers tend to stick together or are they welcoming of newcomers? - meals - due to severe allergies to food preservatives of my wife, how able are the 2 ships able to accommodate special meals? All cruises we have been on say they can accommodate and we spend considerable time in advance providing as much info to them, but even then we have had cross contamination issues or well-meaning chefs try to enhance the meal only to result in an allergic reaction - any other advice or comments you feel might help us make a decision, we are both late 50's relatively active who aren't afraid of a challenge Thanks to all who might reply. I do plan to also post on the Star Clipper forum. Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk
