Waived & Reduced Single Supplements

150% or Less of Double Occupancy Fares

Do you love to travel, but like the privacy of your own sanctuary without paying high single supplements? Do you like guided tours with lots of insightful nuggets? Or do you prefer wandering through off-the-beaten path villages and discovering on your own? Or do you just want to relax on the beach, with mojito in hand?

As a solo traveler, you have the freedom to travel when and how you want. Right now is the time to book an extraordinary journey full of wonder and adventure. Standard single occupancy fares are 175%* of double occupancy fares, but with these fantastic specials, you can book your own room for only 150%* or less of double occupancy fares, and in some cases, for no additional charge!

Like sailing on your own private yacht with just 148 to 342 guests, you’ll traverse picturesque shorelines, stopping at stunning intimate ports with boundless options to take an enriching shore excursion, a private tour, or perhaps choose to spend the day relaxing on sunny teak decks while appreciating genuine, personalized service. And if you choose to participate, there’s even a special dinner on board for solo guests so you can get acquainted with others who share your independent spirit and love of travel.

Escape from the everyday and unwind in a luxurious stateroom that you’ll have all to yourself, revel in the freedom to choose experiences on your own terms and savor precious alone time — making your cruise exactly as private or social as you like.

Check this page often as we'll add and update the sailings based on availability. With these savings, now is the perfect time to book your next adventure, but hurry – voyages are selling out!

The Windstar experience is less like a cruise and more like sailing on your own private yacht. With only 148 to 342 guests on board, you get a level of personalized attention that doesn't exist on bigger ships. With world-class dining and amenities including a Watersports Platform, enriching excursions that get you closer to local culture, and more freedom to come and go, you can follow your curiosity.
SELECT SAILINGS
Handpicked, must-do voyages for those that have already "been there, done that."
Dreams of Tahiti
A graceful yacht is the perfect way to experience the true wonder of Tahiti. We’ll let the trade winds take us to visit one legendary island after another, with plenty of casual time to swim and snorkel in crystal-clear lagoons, meander through lush rainforests, and experience the fascinating Polynesian culture from tikis to tiare flowers.
Beach Fun & Sun: A Remote Caribbean Getaway
Bask on remote beaches resplendent in natural beauty during this relaxing, unrushed, and uncrowded 7-day getaway to secluded Caribbean destinations Windstar specializes in. Board a private speedboat bound for Little Bay, Anguilla’s smallest and most private beach, then snorkel among flitting grunts, wrasses and snappers. Guide your own rigid inflatable boat (RIB) through Sir Francis Drake Waterway bays and isles around Jost Van Dyke. Sink in solitude to the silent depths where an 1867 steamship rests, an iconic Tortola dive site that doubled as an underwater movie set. Embark from Windstar’s onboard Watersports Platform on your own self-directed snorkeling and kayaking adventures. Find the warm sunset twilight during an overnight port stay at Virgin Gorda. Windstar takes you to the secret beaches and invites you to join us for our private Signature Beach Party, a fun in the sun affair, full of the rhythm and joy of the Caribbean.
 
Classic Caribbean
From the stunning drama of the Pitons to the captivating charm of Les Saintes. From hidden coves and secret beaches to exotic markets and lively cafés. Discover the best of this region with one single Caribbean cruise. Sandy beaches, turquoise waters, lush mountains, and beautiful waterfalls blend with the music, tastes, and joie de vivre unique to the Caribbean life.
Tahiti & the Tuamotu Islands
The trade winds of French Polynesia have enticed sailors for centuries – and now those same beautiful breezes welcome us as we sail through the windward and leeward Society Islands to the serene natural beauty of the Tuamotu Islands, where pristine atolls and crystal lagoons welcome you to a hidden paradise. Visit Fakarava where rare species are found nowhere else on earth.
Treasures of the Greek Isles
Visit sun-drenched places as you sail the Greek Isles, discovering a world abounding with seaside scenery and ancient treasures. On such legendary islands as Santorini and Mykonos, views of azure sea and white-washed villages will take your breath away. On your Greek islands cruise, you may embrace the magic and mythology of ancient temples built to honor Greek gods and goddesses. Visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the amazing hilltop Acropolis in Athens, the haunts of St. John on the tiny island of Patmos, and the ancient Roman city of Ephesus. You may imagine you are Mark Antony, as you walk the same marble streets where the Roman general (and lover of Cleopatra) was once cheered by residents. Dine among the fascinating ruins as a complimentary treat, a Windstar-exclusive evening Destination Discovery Event planned for Ephesus.
 
Windstar’s Treasures of Greek Isles, and all other Greece itineraries, deliver you into the heart of Greek culture. As you cruise to Athens, call, too, at small secluded ports such as Monemvasia, a pedestrians-only village built into a cliffside, and Nafplio, a delightful mainland town where you can wander cobblestone streets and explore Venetian fortresses. On your Windstar small ship cruise, Greece unfolds at a leisurely pace. You’ll have time to linger in magical places, to swim from powdery sand beaches, to explore local cuisine and get to know friendly locals, shouting “ya mas” (“cheers”) as you toast with ouzo. You may even dance like Zorba the Greek at a local taverna. Your Windstar cruise is the best of Greece, the way you imagined it.

Looking for more? Go in-land and combine the best of the land and sea with a Cruise Tour that includes this itinerary:

The trade winds of French Polynesia have enticed sailors for centuries – and now those same beautiful breezes welcome us as we sail through the windward and leeward Society Islands to the serene natural beauty of the Tuamotu Islands, where pristine atolls and crystal lagoons welcome you to a hidden paradise. Visit Fakarava where rare species are found nowhere else on earth.
Adriatic Archipelagos & Greek Goddesses
Greek temples, rugged coastal mountain ranges, and rustic, tile-roofed villages dotting the eastern Adriatic shoreline define this exceptional 9-day cruise with an overnight port stay in Kotor, Montenegro. Toast the benefits of Croatian microclimates during a wine tasting near rocky vineyards outside Zadar. Sail, swim and snorkel at a pristine archipelago near Hvar, or rise early to pick fresh, organic vegetables for your family-style Croatian breakfast in the village of Hora, near there. Master Montenegro cuisine under the guidance of a decorated restaurant chef in Kotor. Admire the royal ambiance of Achillion, the Greek mansion of a former Austrian empress on Corfu. And enjoy Greek music performances and take your mark on the hallowed grounds of Olympia, the birthplace of Greek and global athletic competitions.
Around Iceland
Dramatic scenery and curious communities coalesce on this week-long circumnavigation of Iceland.
