How our Bliss Filters work
Windstar Cruises operates a fleet of small luxury boutique cruise ships known for an intimate, yacht style experience and voyages to the world’s best small ports and hidden harbors. Its three recently renovated sailing yachts carry just 148 to 310 guests and cruise to 50 nations, calling at 150 ports throughout Europe, the South Pacific, the Caribbean and Central America, and they're outfitted with contemporary-looking computer-controlled sails.
Seattle-based Windstar, owned by Anchutz Corp. and its subsidiary Xanterra Parks and Resorts, launched three new power yachts In 2014-2015: Star Pride, Star Breeze and Star Legend. The power yachts, with a capacity of 212 guests each, have positioned Windstar as a leader in small ship cruising, with a total of 1,242 berths.
Windstar lures a slightly younger, hipper crowd (mostly North Americans) than most of the upscale lines. The fleet's style is a mix of casual and upscale, marked by unfussy bistro-style cuisine. Water sports enthusiasts will love Windstar’s complimentary waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing, ski-tubing and kayaking from each ship’s aft deck. Scuba diving is also available in certain ports for an additional charge. Passengers can expect luxurious amenities, gourmet cuisine and exceptional service while sailing to uncrowded ports of call.
Voyages are concentrated in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and South Pacific, and itineraries of six to ten days are typical, but you'll also find more wide-ranging destinations such as Southeast Asia, Arabia, Iceland and beyond.
