Windstar Cruises

180 degrees from ordinary, where all your senses are indulged and your sense of wonder is awakened

Taking Small Ship Cruising in a Different Direction

Any cruise ship lets you see the world. Windstar brings it close enough so you can fully live it. See, hear, smell, taste and feel what it’s like to sail on a lovely ship into a small port, explore a hidden beach, see Moroccan goats standing in trees, taste a spicy Norwegian Bacalao stew and altogether lose yourself in a strange and wondrous culture. These elegant cruise ships with fewer than 350 guests open up captivating new worlds and leave indelible, lifetime memories.
