Discover the Windstar Difference


You’re closer to secluded coves, tiny villages, misty fjords. To ancient ruins, medieval alleyways, quaint marinas. To unspoiled beaches, unfamiliar cultures, undiscovered atolls. To enlivening your curiosity and awakening your sense of wonder. You’re closer than ever to the kind of authentic and unforgettable experiences that you travel to find in the first place. You’re about to board Windstar. And you’re closer to all the places that larger ships can’t reach.


Welcome to a world of understated luxury and uncommon beauty. A world that leaves crowds and commonplace behind to find unique ports of call, and local, exotic cultures that are at once fascinating and wondrous. A world that’s equal parts intimate, indulgent and inspiring. Where the allure and beauty and magic of the places you sail to is equaled only by the ship that takes you there.

You Need a Small Ship for Bigger Adventure

Leave the crowds and clichés behind on small, elegant cruise ships that carry less than 310 pampered, privileged guests.
