The Windstar voyage experience includes all meals, all non-alcoholic beverages, and a complimentary welcome drink upon embarkation. There are two primary dining venues on Wind Spirit, and room service is available at any time.
For breakfast, guests can either stop by the Yacht Club Cafe for a quick latte, drip coffee, tea, or pastry. There’s also Veranda restaurant on the top deck which offers a casual sit-down buffet and full-service breakfast, al fresco style, from 7:30 – 9:30 a.m.; find open seating here. Lunch is also served at Veranda in a similar fashion but guests should check the daily program for specific times of lunch service depending on the day.
In the evening, Veranda transforms into the reservation-only restaurant, Candles, which features a robust menu of steaks and skewers with top-quality wine pairings, all served in open-air seating underneath the stars. Downstairs, Amphora restaurant serves a plated dinner where the manager seats each guest wherever they want, with no pressure to join pre-assigned tables or first or second seating assignments. At Amphora, diners will enjoy gourmet, course-by-course cuisine that rotates depending on the day, including featured specials by acclaimed national James Beard Chefs.
