Windstar Cruises

Cruise Style: Luxury

Combine a classic masted schooner with modern technology and prepare to be dazzled as, in a mere two minutes, crisp white sails unfurl above the teak decking at the touch of a button. An alternative to the usual cruise vacation, Windstar vessels seamlessly combine the romance of skimming the sea beneath billowing sails and the amenities associated with a luxury cruise liner. 

Special Features

Discriminating guests savor Windstar’s innovative signature cuisine in open seating restaurants and Wind Surf’s alternative restaurant, the Bistro. Menus feature vegetarian and light offerings.

Varied, unique itineraries and a mixture of shore adventures and water sports activities centering around the ships’ water marina deck are Windstar highlights.

The on board décor is nautical elegance and the atmosphere relaxed and unregimented. Expect to be pampered in the spa and leave your formal attire at home.

There are no elevators on Windstar Cruises' three smaller vessels. Wind Surf has two elevators, but cabins are not designed for wheelchair accessibility. However, to the extent feasible, the needs of physically challenged guests are accommodated. Depending on berthing conditions and tides, gangways can be extremely steep.

Cruise Itineraries

Caribbean; Panama Canal; Central America; Eastern and Western Mediterranean; Greek Isles; Transatlantic.

Your Shipmates

Windstar Cruises appeal to upscale professional couples from their late-30’s to retirees who enjoy the unpretentious, yet casually sophisticated atmosphere with creative cuisine and refined service.

Junior Cruisers

Windstar Cruises’ vessels are adult-oriented and inappropriate for infants and toddlers. No dedicated children’s facilities are available and parents are responsible for the behavior and entertainment of older children.
