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
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
