Why Windstar is the Way to Sail

The way to cruising private yacht style.

With the wind behind you and the stars above, you can go anywhere aboard their fleet of three classic sailing and three newly transformed all-suite yachts. Cruise on what feels like your own perfectly sized private sailing yacht, where you have the freedom and space to do more of what you love alongside 148 to 342 fellow travelers.

The way to get closer to new places and experiences.

Windstar doesn’t just take you to places. It takes you into places bigger ships simply cannot. Wake up to iconic ports and hidden harbors while docked on the doorstop of the world’s most fascinating cities. Each is yours to explore from a local’s perspective with tours and excursions guaranteed to make every trip ashore a trip of a lifetime.

The way to build new and lasting connections.

When you sail with Windstar, you don’t just get to know places. You get to know people. The kind of people, guests and crew alike who add to the unpretentious casual atmosphere onboard and who create lifelong bonds thanks to their shared travel experience. What will remain, long after the trip, is a sense of community and your place within it.

The way to service from the heart.

They call them Windstar moments and they’re created by a crew that considers hospitality a calling, not just a job. While you are not a number, their 1.5 to 1 guest-to-crew ratio make acts of personalized attention and recognition a daily occurrence. Simple gestures like remembering your name or recommending a favorite, must-see location ashore isn’t just what they do. It’s how they share the joy of cruising.

The way to locally inspired cuisine without reservations.

Fully immersing yourself in destinations and cultures should leave you full. As the Official Cruise Line of the James Beard Foundation, it begins in the kitchens where their chefs take inspiration from locally sourced, fresh ingredients and plate innovative twists on local cuisine. No cover charges and no reservations needed. Just you, a table and a world of delicious possibilities.

Slide Slide Slide Slide

Small Cruise Yachts

Visit local markets with Chef. Drop by the Open Bridge for an impromptu lesson on chart reading with Captain. Share bottles of wine and appetizers with the couple sitting next to you in Candles. Listen to live music in the Lounge. Jump directly off the yacht from our Watersports Platform. And most of all, do more the things you want to do when you travel.

Beyond the Reach of Ordinary

Windstar scours the world for amazing places just this side of unreachable, then seek out the most authentic ways for guests to experience them – in small groups that are easily absorbed by local cultures rather than intruding on them. Their itineraries are port intensive, often with exclusive landfalls larger ships can’t access. And they often stay late into the evening or even overnight in places where neon dims the stars. Go. They can’t wait to show you what they’ve found.

It’s a match made in heaven, this. You on your pristine white cruise ship, sails billowing, and these islands, so impossibly colorful, like a box of crayons gone mad. Wind Spirit is as at-home among Tahiti’s deserted motus and shallow lagoons as a tiare flower, and just as beautiful, furled or unfurled. Bliss knows no bounds. The sand massages your feet, warm water welcomes you like an old friend, ambition falls away as you watch the sun etch palm fronds on the beach. This is a place that is easy to love, difficult to leave, as so many before you have discovered. Come. Experience Bora Bora, Moorea, Fakarava, and other exotic Tahiti destinations you only dream about.

Surrounded by wonders like the magnificent Cinque Terre, the culturally transcendent Alhambra, and the Belém Tower monument, it is easy to fall in love with the Mediterranean. With unique cruise itineraries, Windstar brings you closer to this spectacular part of the world. Cruise the Guadalquivir River, the only navigable river in Spain spanning 408 miles, to Seville. Anchor in the heart of Old Town Dubrovnik as larger cruise ships pass by. Visit a local Mediterranean market with the Windstar Chef, enjoy local experiences in interesting locales such as Giardini Naxos, Portofino, and Mallorca and see a new port almost every day with never more than one sea day.

Words like moor, loch, and geyser were born in this land, because no existing vocabulary could adequately describe these extraordinary landscapes. These regions could just as easily have coined a term for ambrosial summer evenings at seaside cafés, Fabergé palaces of amber and gold, and storybook cities crisscrossed by canals and flower markets, all of which are here in abundance. But as your elegant ship traces its way through enchanting fjords and forgotten archipelagos, you won’t need words. You are speechless.
