Welcome to a world of understated luxury and uncommon beauty. A world that leaves crowds and commonplace behind to find unique ports of call, and local, exotic cultures that are at once fascinating and wondrous. Where the allure and beauty and magic of the places you sail to is equalled only by the ship that takes you there.
Windstar takes cruising in a different direction. Guests see the world from closer perspectives, on lovely small ships that set the standards for impeccable service and culinary excellence. Banish cliché, toss aside regimen, steer clear of stuffiness. Free from crowds, experience cultures in ways that are personal and authentic, with 148-312 guests, each one of Windstar’s fleet of six ships are large enough to pamper whilst small enough to explore secluded coves and docks across the world.
The moment you board you will feel it: a very-attentive crew at your service, providing you with what you want and need, when you want and need it. The Windstar staff-to-guest ratio is 1:1.5, and it shows. Windstar was named “Best Cruise Line (under 500 berths)” in the 17th Annual Travel Weekly Readers’ Choice Awards and made Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List for Best Cruise Ships in the World!
