About Windstar Cruises

Windstar Cruises provide small luxury cruises, calling at 150 ports throughout Central America, the Caribbean, the South Pacific and Europe. Named the Condé Nast Traveler Readers Choice Best Small Ship Cruise Line Worldwide, Windstar Cruises certainly has an exceptional reputation. The company offers a fleet of six luxury yachts and specialises in a personalized approach and unique, up-close and personal experiences.

Offering five-star service, Windstar Cruises typically cater to those with a higher budget. Some of the tours that are available include Canada & New England, Asia, Alaska, Costa Rica & Panama Canal, the Caribbean, Italy, Greece, Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, and Tahiti. They also provide themed tours, which enable passengers to see some of the world’s most exclusive events and destinations such as the Grand Prix in Monte Carlo.

Windstar Cruises provide Star Collector Voyages. These cruises involve some of the company’s most popular itineraries, yet what makes these tours different is that they include a more in-depth exploration of each region. Featuring few repeated ports and longer voyages of more than 14 days, these cruises are ideal for those who really want to discover a new location, returning home feeling like they’ve seen everything they needed to. Star Collector Voyages also come with free daily laundry, meaning travelers can pack light if they wish to.

Aside from the diverse selection of tours, Windstar pride themselves on offering a small and personalized approach to cruise ship holidays, bringing their customers closer to every port and destination. The company aims to give holidaymakers the intimate moments that aren’t typically associated with going on a cruise. Passengers discover exotic, local cultures by day, and enjoy a lavish, personalized service by night.

The Windstar fleet consists of the Wind Surf, Wind Spirit, Wind Star, Star Pride, Star Breeze, and Star Legend. The Star Yachts all feature 106 suits, which cater to 212 pampered guests. There are 100 ocean view suites, four classic suites, and two deluxe owners’ suites. The Wind Star and Wind Spirit feature 74 staterooms, catering to 148 guests. There is one deluxe owner’s suite, which has a dining area and a queen bed, as well as 73 deluxe rooms with an ocean view.

Windstar’s flagship sailing yacht, Wind Surf, is undoubtedly the most impressive yacht in the fleet. This is the biggest sailing yacht in the world, with 154 staterooms for 310 guests. There are 123 deluxe ocean view staterooms, two bridal suites, and 31 ocean view suites with his and her bathrooms. Wind Surf was recently renovated, meaning it now boasts bedrooms featuring fine count Egyptian cotton linens, soft seascape colors and rich tufted headboards. All guests also have bowls of fresh fruit and flowers waiting for them upon arrival.

Included also with a luxury room and action-packed packed itinerary on a Windstar cruise, are activities and entertainment onboard. This includes the Watersports Platform, WindSpa, a fitness center, a library, a casino, a pool and a hot tub. Windstar Cruises are also known for their culinary excellence, with a focus on sustainable and local food, and meals cooked to order on request.

For a cruise ship holiday with a lavish touch, Windstar Cruises certainly deliver. For passengers who like a small ship experience with plenty of opportunities to explore unique destinations, Windstar Cruises are a fantastic choice.

Cruise Ships of Windstar Cruises

Star Breeze

A member of Windstar Cruises' fleet, Star Breeze is a small, yacht-style cruise ship that features a compact swimming pool, whirlpool, and water sports platform. At 440-feet long, it holds 212 passengers, served by a crew of 150. This sophisticated cruise ship is popular with discerning couples who simply love being at sea and enjoy visiting destinations that are off the beaten track.

A variety of voyages around Europe and the Caribbean are part of this elegant cruise ship’s itinerary. Because of its smaller size Star Breeze can access tiny coves and harbors that are normally off-limits to bigger cruise ships. Sailing north from Copenhagen, the ship embarks on a dazzling cruise through the Norwegian fjords, docking at small, picturesque cities like Stravanger and Bergen en route. The ship makes regular journeys through the Panama Canal, and common destinations include the historical colonial city of Cartagena, Colombia, the Pacific paradise of Puerto Quepos, Costa Rica, and the tiny island of Bequia, in the Grenadines.

Built in 1988, the ship was given a complete refurbishment in 2015 when it joined Windstar Cruises. Onboard, all 106 ocean-facing staterooms are suites with separate living areas and bedrooms that can be separated by curtains. Larger than the suites found on the sailing ships Windstar Cruises is known for, all have flat screen TVs, DVD players, walk-in closets, and private bathrooms with shower and tub. Guests can dine at the ship’s main restaurant AmphorA at any time of day, or enjoy room service in the privacy of their suite.

Star Legend

Star Legend, one of Windstar Cruises’ small luxury cruise ships, certainly lives up to its name, providing a legendary experience for everyone onboard. With only 212 guests, yet 153 international staff, a personalized experience is assured. The ship, which was built in 1992, features six guest decks, with 106 suites to choose from.

There are 64 Ocean View Suites with picture windows, 36 Balcony Suites with French-style balconies, four Classic Suites with private verandas, and two Owner’s Suites also with private verandas. The Owner’s Suites are incredibly plush, comprising 575-square-feet, so guests can indulge in spacious comfort. All staterooms come with fresh flowers, a fresh fruit bowl, a waffle-weave robe and slippers, and Egyptian cotton bed linens.

The amenities onboard Star Legend are just as varied. Guest can visit the Bridge to view the captain’s navigation charts, work off dessert in the fitness center, or take a dip in the pool. The WindSpa offers a sumptuous place to get pampered, while the ship’s inspiring library features a spacious, contemporary setting. Designed to give guests the feeling of a private yacht experience, Star Legend’s three restaurants focus on local, sustainable foods, and offer meals at any time of the day as well as 24-hour room service.

The Star Legend cruise ship sails all around Asia and also makes journeys to Alaska. Cruising highlights include discovering the beauty of Mount Fuji, on the “Grand Japan” tour, spending a night in Shanghai on the “Comprehensive China Exploration” voyage, and swimming in the idyllic crystal waters of Hundred Islands National Park on “The Best of the Philippines & Borneo” cruise.

Star Pride

The aptly-named Star Pride, from Windstar Cruises, gives passengers an intimate, decadent experience, boasting world-class amenities while giving guests the feeling of being on a private yacht. With a limited capacity of 212 guests, and 151 crew, every passenger is sure to feel well looked-after on this exclusive vessel.

Star Pride cruises journey across the globe, offering itineraries to suit every traveler. Thanks to its smaller size, the ship is able to take guests to exquisite spots inaccessible to larger vessels. Those wishing to combine urban discovery with awe-inspiring nature might choose the “North Atlantic Odyssey”, a 16-day voyage from Reykjavik across the North Atlantic that takes in Acadia National Park, the glaciers of Greenland and the rugged coastlines of Southeast Canada and New England, ending up in New York. Sunseekers might prefer a seven-day trip along the “Windward Islands Surf & Sunsets” route, with stops including San Juan, St. Maarten, Les Saintes and Bequia.

While the Star Pride is known for its intimate feel, the ship boasts an array of activities, ensuring there is never a dull moment on board. Guests can try their luck at the casino, lounge by the pool and relax in the calming atmosphere of the WindSpa, while looking forward to sumptuous meals at the AmphorA Restaurant.

Setting out on her maiden voyage in November 1988, Star Pride has 106 spacious and newly refurbished suites, each with an impressive ocean view. Balcony, Classic and Owner’s suites even offer guests their own private balcony or veranda from which to shoot the breeze and survey the beauty before them.

With four decks, accommodation for 148 guests, and 101 international crew members, passengers can enjoy privacy and a high level of service aboard this distinctive cruise ship.

Most of the cruises taking place on the Wind Spirit center on Tahiti tours. Highlights include diving, snorkeling, or swimming in Bora Bora's iconic lagoon on the “Dreams of Tahiti” voyage and exploring the rich ecosystem of Fakarava, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, on the “Tahiti & The Tuamotu Islands” tour.

Wind Spirit caters predominantly to couples. Guests can choose from the Ocean View Owner’s Suite or one of the 73 deluxe ocean view rooms. The Owner’s Suite offers lots of space, including a sitting area, and luxurious extras. All staterooms are comfortable and feature a spacious bath with stylish granite counter tops.

In terms of dining, there are two main options on board this ship: AmphorA and Veranda. AmphorA provides course-by-course, gourmet cuisine in the evening, and Veranda offers a full-service and casual buffet for lunch and breakfast. For something a little special, guests can reserve a table at Candles to enjoy steak and skewers under the stars.

The cruise ship’s facilities are just as varied. Guests can relax in the hot tub, lounge by the pool, catch up on a good book from the library, or chill in the lounge. There is also a casino, water sports platform, and a WindSpa for some much-deserved pampering.
