Windstar Cruises

Luxury Cruises: Seattle-based Windstar Cruises provides travelers with the opportunity to discover small ports around the world in a luxurious setting, all with Windstar's "Casual Elegance" atmosphere.

Each Windstar Cruise is onboard a carefully designed ship, complete with stunning white sails. Officially designated as motor-sail-yachts (msy), each ship is small enough to provide guests with the feeling that they are on a private yacht.

The newest and largest member of the fleet of four is the 312-passenger msy Wind Surf. The other ships hold fewer than 150 passengers, allowing Windstar Cruises to provide special touches that other cruises cannot. Some of the special nuances found onboard a Windstar Cruise includes open seating at dinnertime and a more relaxed, but still elegant dress code.

Each stateroom comes complete with modern technological conveniences, like new LCD flatscreen TV, DVD, CD player, iPod Nanos and Bose SoundDocks systems, safe, mini-bar/refrigerator, international direct-dial phones. Windstar tops off the luxurious rooms with high-end toiletries and roomy closets.

Onboard, guests also have access to a library and DVD collection in addition to the ability to enjoy complimentary water sports, like water-skiing, windsurfing, snorkeling, and kayaking from the ship's aft Water Sports Platform.

Dining onboard a Windstar Cruise is a casual, but tasty experience, with breakfast being served on the Veranda or in guests' private staterooms. Dinner is an elegant but casual experience in gourmet dining, with unique meals and international themed dinners available on some ships.

In addition to a variety of activities, Windstar Cruises also allows for relaxation in the ships' onboard spas, which feature a variety of treatment options and special touches.

Luxurious Windstar Cruises explore every region of the world, including the Caribbean, Europe, The Americas, the Greek Isles and the Trans-Atlantic.
