A leader in small-ship cruising for the last 20 years, Windstar Cruises has alternative dining venues, a mix of shore excursions, a complimentary watersports program, spa facilities and luxurious accommodation. Windstar’s ships are officially motored-sail-yachts; however, at the push of a button, billowing white sails reach to the sky. Guests can drop by the ‘open bridge’ to acquaint themselves with the veteran captains and officers, who are happy to demonstrate the ship’s capabilities.
Watch a DVD from the library in cabin on the flat-screen TV. Or have a drink, listening to nightly entertainment from the band, then heading to the casino and enjoy the company of like-minded people.
An integral part of Windstar’s ‘Casual Elegance’ design is the ‘Casual Elegance’ attitude, and what can be more casual than having no assigned seating in the Restaurant or Bistro? Or perhaps it’s the casual dress, as there’s no need for formal wear here.
Wind Surf´s facilities include 3 restaurants, 3 bars, 2 lounges, 2 pools, 2 hot tubs, a casino, a watersports platform, a spa and fitness centre and an open bridge. Wind Spirit and Wind Star each have 2 resturants, 2 bars, a lounge, casino, library, watersports platform, pool, hot tub, spa and fitness centre, a sauna and an open bridge.
