Overview of Windstar Cruises
Windstar Cruises uses the tagline "180 Degrees From Ordinary" - and this is an appropriate description of their unique idea! Windstar offers an alternative to the typical cruise vacation, as they offer a different sort of cruise - the luxury yacht! Officially, the ships in the Windstar fleet are motor-sail-yachts; billowing white sails catch the wind to take you to exotic destinations as you indulge in the luxury and style aboard these magnificent ships! Teak decking, rich wood interiors, intimate surroundings, artwork, delicious food, and attentive service are all hallmarks of these fine ships. The three vessels in the Windstar fleet sail to a combined 47 countries between them, so you'll have a unique adventure each time you sail!
All staterooms and suites offer ocean views, a sitting area, an LCD flatscreen TV with DVD player, CD player, iPod Nano and Bose Soundocks, a safe, international direct-dial phones, a mini-bar, luxurious toiletries, terry cloth robes, and large closets!
Windstar offers world class service with the intimacy of a private yacht. With more than one crew member for every two guests, the staff is on call around the clock and will enhance your experience by providing a level of personal service that will amaze you!
Each ship exudes an atmosphere reminiscent of a private yacht, as you bond with your fellow passengers and create lasting friendships! Explore your destinations with an interesting mix of shore excursions and water sports that are complimentary with your fare! You can go waterskiing, windsurfing, snorkeling and even kayaking from the Water Sports Platform on each ship! Prepare to experience a moving feast of cultural experiences all while reposing in the refinement you'd expect from a luxury hotel!
