Once upon a time, Yalta was reserved for Russian czars and Russian aristocrats. Those who were jaded by jewels, palaces, and fine caviar ranked this Crimean resort among their favorites, and so will you.
With the beautiful Crimean climate and beaches, this must have rated among the most desirable of ports for the historic Russian seafarers. Beyond the city, explore ancient Chersonesus, a Greek city founded in the 5th century.
Catherine the Great endowed this sparkling city, designed by the finest European architects. With its eclectic architectural styles and immigrants from diverse cultures, Odessa has a unique vibe.
Nothing quite captures the daydream of the Greek Isles like Santorini, especially when you make sure you’re on deck for our early morning arrival. As our yacht approaches the spectacular cliffs rising from the deep azure sea — with the Fira, Santorini’s capital, perched 1,000 feet above our anchorage — you’ll understand the magic of this area, where some say the ruins of Atlantis remain hidden.
This beautiful harbor gives us an opportunity for one of the highlights of Windstar. Today, our two beautiful sailing yachts, Wind Star and Wind Spirit, are both harbored in Rhodes. For your day in port, Rhodes, the “island of roses” offers you a myriad of choices. Enjoy dinner back on board, or stay ashore and try the local fare tonight.
There’s so much to enjoy here — from a romantic gulet cruise for two to SCUBA diving with a certified instructor. Or you may prefer to spend this amazing day lounging on the beach at the beautiful Kempinski Barbaros Bay Hotel. Today is also the day for another Windstar highlight, our on-deck yacht barbecue.
Few ancient sites offer such a rich combination of history and scenic beauty as does Kusadasi. In Ephesus, one of the greatest outdoor museums in the world, you’ll explore legendary sites steeped in history.
