Windstar Cruises

Award-winning Windstar Cruises is not your ordinary cruise line. In fact, they’re not even close to it. So, people can set aside any preconceived notions about cruising — floating mega malls, disco nights, and thousands of passengers. Windstar knows the way to explore a world that’s 180 degrees from ordinary. Get closer to everything, get away from the crowds and explore the world more intimately. Windstar knows the way.

Imagine discovering unspoiled beaches, unfamiliar cultures, and undiscovered atolls. With Windstar Cruises, you can enliven your curiosity and awaken your sense of wonder — venturing to places never thought possible. Leave the crowds and the commonplace behind and experience a different kind of cruise; where the allure, beauty, and magic of the places you sail to is equaled only by the yacht that takes you there.

Sailing with Windstar feels like sailing on your own private yacht. Carrying just 148 to 342 passengers, their ships can slip past the crowds and dock in smaller ports that big cruise ships can’t reach, getting you closer to those one-of-a-kind places and experiences you’ll remember forever. While Windstar’s itineraries cover the world’s must-sees, they believe what excites their guests most is the seldom-seen places they go. Tucked away ports. Secret lagoons. Pristine beaches. Of course, fewer guests means more intimate, onshore excursions that take you off the beaten path and help you get to know the authentic local culture.

No matter what destination beckons you, the local flavor of the culture is deliciously captured when you dine onboard your Windstar ship. As the Official Cruise Line of the James Beard Foundation, Windstar is passionate about local flavor. Wherever they sail, their chefs shop at local markets to pick up the freshest ingredients, resulting in perfectly presented dishes at their onboard venues: Amphora, Veranda, Candles, Stella Bistro on Wind Surf, and Cuadro 44 by Anthony Sasso, and Star Grill by Stephen Raichlen on the newly reimagined Star Breeze, Star Legend, and Star Pride. It’s all open seating. No formal dining times. No assigned seating. No stuffy dress codes. But they go even further for foodies with onshore culinary tours and cooking classes by local chefs. And, now, they’re offering tantalizing food and wine-themed cruises. Click HERE for video to learn more about Windstar Cruises' cuisine.

Windstar journeys are designed to help you chart your own course, starting with the fastest check-in at sea, so you can get right to your personal itinerary. Do you want to chat with the Captain on the Bridge? Do you want to shop with the Chef? Or paddleboard right off the ship’s Watersports Platform? It’s all up to you.

Windstar’s small ships boast unexpectedly spacious public spaces. Ample decks and elegant outdoor spaces invite travelers to relax with a glass of wine while taking in the view. And at the end of the day, expansive, ocean-view staterooms and suites with special touches such as L’Occitane® bath products and waffle-weave robes and slippers offer a retreat like no other. Just like they’ve done with small ship cruising, Windstar is taking “renovation” in a different direction. They’ve transformed their three all-suite Star Plus Class ships—Star Breeze, Star Legend, and Star Pride—end-to-end to offer you more comfort in-suite, more delight on deck, and more surprises in store.

And of course, part of the Windstar magic is incredible personal service. Known for their heartfelt and genuine thoughtfulness, Windstar’s crew not only remembers your name but also your preferences. Both gracious hosts and ambassadors, they delight in surprising you in discrete ways — satisfying your sweet tooth with extra chocolate on your pillow or sharing the location of a favorite seaside café. 

At Windstar Cruises, the health and safety of everyone on board is a top priority. Windstar is connected to industry experts and following guidelines by the regulatory authorities in every area of the world and sails with additional technologies that go beyond these requirements as part of the new Beyond Ordinary Care program.

Windstar believes the ultimate luxury is an experience designed specifically to your personal tastes, just like your own private yacht.
