Windstar Cruises


Helpful Hints

Windstar’s luxury sailing ships were completely transformed in late 2012 in a major stem to stern renovation.

Expansive white sails are hoisted on the ships, but they are mostly for show; most sailing is done under engine power.

All nonalcoholic beverages are included in the fare, but there is a charge for beer, wine, and other alcoholic drinks.

Each Windstar ship has a water sports platform with complimentary water sports, including snorkeling, windsailing, paddleboating and even water skiing.

Hotel or hotel and tour packages are available to extend your trip pre- or post-cruise.
