About Windstar Cruises

A voyage on a Windstar luxury cruise feels like your own private yacht – luxurious amenities, gourmet cuisine, exceptional service, and exotic and unique ports of call. Small enough to reach places other cruise ships can’t go, large enough to pamper and entertain you. Sail to the Greek Isles, Italy, Europe, the warm waters of the Caribbean and Costa Rica, the exotic paradise of Tahiti and the Society Islands. You’ll quickly discover a genuine freedom to escape and explore as you want, when you want. You’ll love the journey as much as the destination. Read more

Cruising back to the region after two decades, Windstar will offer a new, luxurious choice, with its boutique brand of small ship cruising and experiential travel. Windstar’s Alaska beckons guests to slow down over leisurely journeys. With voyages starting at 11 days, there is ample time for scenic cruising in both Canada’s and Alaska’s famed inside passages – where guests can look for orcas, bears, and bald eagles from the comfort of their elegant ship. Guests can enjoy a cup of cocoa on deck as they sail through Misty Fjords National Monument and Kenai Fjords National Park, experiences usually booked via a shore excursion because the “big ships” just don’t go there."

WIND SPIRIT & WIND STAR - The Essence of Small Ship Sailing
The ships sail with just 148 guests each in 74 total staterooms: 73 deluxe Ocean view staterooms and 1 Ocean View Owner's Suite in each ship. The ships feature wide open, teak decks-quite unusual for small ships. Guests will find hidden nooks for private moments giving them a feeling of being on their own private veranda.
All staterooms have ocean views, queen beds, flat-screen TV with DVD player, and Bose Sound Dock speakers for Apple iPods. The Owner’s Suite includes a sitting area.

WIND SURF - Windstar's Flagship Sailing Yacht
The world’s largest sailing yacht, the Wind Surf sails with just 310 pampered guests in 155 total staterooms: 122 deluxe Ocean view staterooms, 31 deluxe Ocean view Suites with two full separate bathrooms and 2 deluxe Ocean view Bridge Suires with separate bedroom and living area and an in-suite dining area. Starting with all new finishes and furnishings in suites and staterooms, Wind Surf renovation now brings you some of the most beautiful public spaces at sea.

With only 212 guests each, you will feel like you're on board your own private yacht almost as soon as you step aboard. The sitting area of your spacious, newly refurbished suite gives you an expansive ocean view — making it a welcome retreat. Each of these ships offer 106 total suites: 2 Owner's Suites with private verandas; 4 Classic Suites with private verandas; 36 Balcony Suites with French-style balconies; 64 Ocean View Suites with picture windows.
The ships are large enough to pamper and entertain you, yet small enough to tuck into delightful tiny harbors and hidden coves that others can’t reach.
