Small Ship NORTHERN EUROPE CRUISES

 

Small Enchanting Ports. Windstar Style Cruising.
See More of Northern Europe with Windstar.

Words like moor, loch, and geyser were born in this land, because no existing vocabulary could adequately describe these extraordinary landscapes. These regions could just as easily have coined a term for ambrosial summer evenings at seaside cafés, fairytale palaces, and storybook cities crisscrossed by canals and flower markets, all of which are here in abundance. But as your elegant ship traces its way through enchanting fjords and forgotten archipelagos, you won’t need words. You are speechless.

 

 

Windstar Knows the Way to Northern Europe
Fairy Tales Come True
Windstar shows you the best of Northern Europe, from must-see cities to scenic cruising to tiny out-of-the-way ports and waterways reserved for small ships like ours. Plus, an abundance of overnight stays and late departures means you have time for both your bucket list and new discoveries.
Beyond Ordinary - smaller ports
Chart a course for the undiscovered corners of Northern Europe, where unique experiences await you around every bend. Heimaey Island’s lava-covered city. Tea at Picton Castle in Fishguard. The red brick Hanseatic buildings and famous marzipan of Lübeck (Wismar). The unique language of whistles found only on Spain’s island of Gomera. And while larger ships must travel around the Jutland Peninsula to go between the North Sea and the Baltic, we take the Kiel Canal—a cruise through the heart of Germany reserved for small ships like ours.
More Time, More Exploration - Overnights
Some cities are so packed with attractions they demand extra time, either as overnight stays or as late evening departures. Northern Europe has more than its fair share of such key ports. Copenhagen, for instance, with its colorful and historic Nyhavn Harbor and Tivoli Gardens. Invergordon, where an extended stay lets you watch for monsters as you boat across Loch Ness. And London, a town absolutely brimming with icons and echoes of the past.
Expand Your Journey
Why not extend your Northern Europe adventure with a Cruise Tour or Star Collector voyage? Cruise Tours show you the best of both land and sea, complementing your cruise with “don’t miss” sights inland, like Iceland’s thundering waterfalls and steaming hot springs. While Star Collector voyages combine popular cruise itineraries and add benefits such as complimentary laundry service. Some even combine Northern Europe with other regions, letting you expand your exploration to areas like the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Aegean.
Featured Port: Haimaey Island, Iceland
Off the south coast of Iceland there’s an archipelago called the Westman Islands, and the largest of these is Heimaey. The area is famous for its bird life, including the world’s largest puffin breeding colony, but it’s also known for its geology. In 1973, a volcano on the island erupted and hot lava threatened its only harbor. Before evacuating, the locals sprayed seawater on the advancing lava, stopping its advance and saving the harbor. Now reoccupied, the island offers a rare glimpse of the old town — a modern-day Pompeii.
Shore Excursion Must-Do: Concierge Collection: Norman Cooking with Chef Brigitte (Honfleur, France)
Meet Chef Brigitte Dumant for your cooking lesson in her “Long House in the Marshes” (“La Longère des Marais”) isolated in the country. Get to know your host and enjoy la vie à la Française for half a day! Once ready, you will prepare three typical Norman dishes (starter, main course and dessert), before tasting and enjoying your meal in her charming garden.
